They cracked Youtube and then became a band. 5 Seconds Of Summer hail from Australia and are described as a punk pop band.

They've enjoyed massive success over a relatively short space of time and their legions of Irish fans will be delighted to see them at the 3Arena.

Who: Lake Street Dive
Date: April 28
Where: Whelan's, Dublin

This band from Boston are hard to pigeon-hole. One of those very talented multi-genre bands who are equally as adept at banging out an indie sounding tune as they are with a jazz tune.

Check out this tune, it's a belter.

Who: Anderson
Date: April 30
Where: Roisin Dubh, Galway

No it's not the rotund Brazilian footballer who stole a living at Manchester United, but the Dublin lad came to our attention a while back by selling his music door-to-door.


He's a precocious talent and this will be a lovely gig in the Roisin.

Who: The Coronas
Date: April 30
Where: King John's Castle, Limerick


The Coronas come to Limerick and the very fancy surroundings of King John's Castle this Saturday night and you just know, if you're a fan, that this will be a very special gig.
