The best of the live music gigs around Ireland this week.

Who: The Lumineers

US indie-folk-rock merchants The Lumineers roll into town tonight for a show in the Olympia. Likened a lot to Mumford & Sons, their Irish fans will be looking forward to this one.

Who: Booka Brass Band
Date: April 22
Where: Roisin Dubh, Galway

These eight lads are ripping it up everywhere they go. Staples of the festival circuit and having sold out Vicar Street on New Years Eve, they are on the crest of a wave.

Go see them in the Roisin and marvel at their collective wall of sound.
