The Button Factory – €23

Indie-folk band The Mountain Goats will be playing The Button Factory as part of their ongoing European tour. Since their formation in 1991, The Mountain Goats have mastered both a grainy lo-fi and an ultra-polished approach to folk rock, firmly establishing themselves in their genre among the likes of Beck and Neutral Milk Hotel. While often shifting their sound, the compositions by the band’s founder John Darnielle have always remained honest and truthful. Tickets are available for €23 online. Doors at 7:30pm.

The Academy – €20

Detroit band Electric 6 will be returning to Dublin to mark the release of their 14th studio album, Bride of the Devil. Since the early 2000s, Electric 6 have been combining elements of disco, funk, punk and metal to create semi-satirical music for a serious and passionate fanbase. With hits such as ‘Gay Bar’ and ‘Danger! High Voltage’, they have become revered for their catchy but ambiguous music and their creative stage names. Tickets are available now for €20. Doors at 7pm.


Anna’s Anchor

December 5th @ 8pm

The Workman’s Club – €7

Anna’s Anchor will be performing a solo set upstairs at The Workman’s Club with support from Handsome Eric and Kayleigh O’Brien. Marty Ryan of Anna’s Anchor will be bringing an acoustic rendition of his blend of emo and alternative rock to Dublin without the accompaniment of his band. Under the mantra “honest songs for honest people”, Ryan has been creating music from his hometown of Limerick since 2015 and has supported great acts such as Crywank and Aaron West and the Roaring Twenties. Admission is €7. Doors at 8pm.
