Music & Words

Indie music blog. Their music, our words, in perfect harmony.

Featured gigs for next week (10-16th of August) #LiveItUp

My favourite gigs this week span again from indie to jazz – although I rarely venture into the latter, one does need it from time to time!

Gig of the week

Gigonometry Presents… female-led acts

Thursday August 13th 8pm The Workmans Club

Cat Dowling: The Believer

Good tempo song featuring Cat’s husky voice

Grace Wilde: Under Your Skin

Audrey’s jazz voice is full of emotions and the pair works seamlessly together

Silent Interlude: Dead Weight

My favourite of the three, Silent Interlude matches great drumming and strong electric guitar on this track in harmonious contrast with lead singer’s fairy tale voice. Hard to believe this is a band less than a year old!


For guitar lovers

RM HUBBERT + VerseChorusVerse

Friday, August 14th, The Vintage Room, The Workmans Club

Beautiful guitar playing from Scotland


Marc O’Reilly + Ciaran Lavery

Friday 14th August, Whelan’s upstairs

If you like Hozier, you’ll love Marc O’Reilly’s voice and his genius strums let it be on acoustic or electric guitar.

Second act on the night is Ciaran Lavery with his rich voice and old friend, the acoustic guitar.



Storytelling with music: John Spillane

The DC Music Club Fri 14 August

Blues at its best: the legendary Alvin Youngblood Hart + Crow Black Chicken from Ireland

Thursday 13th August Whelan’s Main Room

Jazz at JJ Smith’s

Jim Doherty & Louis Stewart on Sunday, 16 August 2015

3G on Thursday, 13 August 2015


Special mention

Reverberation in The Grand Social: Ireland’s first Psyche/Drone Festival – live bands, DJs & Visuals running over 2 days, Fri & Sat, 14-15th of August

See you at one of the above! 🙂


About Miss Andi

Learning to be unapologetically me but healthier. Shamelessly personifying my dog, Mia, who is my soulmate, though doesn't let me read as much as I used to. One day I'll finish a novel that will not save the world - but might make it smile.
