Who: Stomptown Brass
When: May 6
Where: The Spirit Store, Dundalk, Co. Louth

Stomptown Brass are a New Orleans style urban brass band based in Dublin, playing originals written and composed by James O'Leary.

Who: The Frank & Walters
When: May 7
Where: Whelan's, Dublin

One of the best bands to come out of Cork and indeed Ireland. The Frank & Walters were on the cusp of world domination a few years ago, but a series of mitigating factors prevented that.

Never mind, they're back and sounding as brilliant as ever. This will be a cracker of a gig.

Who: Kula Shaker
When: May 7
Where: Dolan's, Limerick

This English band were huge back in the 90s. They went away for some reason, but they are back and they know how to put on a great live show.


They will rock Dolan's to its core with such ditties as this one.
