Three Brilliant Gigs To Check Out Tonight Before 'Silly Season' Is Upon Us

We're on the cusp of it being 'that time of year again'.

The time of work parties, friends returning from far flung places and naff jumpers.

Among all this reverie and Pogues-singing there can often be scant little time to catch a good gig - so now's an ideal time to experience some quality live music before the season of hangovers, regrets and resolutions begins!

The Delorentos (Acoustic set) @ National Concert Hall

A very intriguing gig by a band well known by the nation after close to a decade of touring.

If you've enjoyed their gigs along the way, this acoustic switch-up should be an appetising option for a Saturday night musical pursuit.

This concert is the crown jewel of their current unplugged tour, Home Again. Booking in advance is advised!

Electric Six @ The Academy

One of the leading lights of 2000s era comedy rock.

Savagely comedic by most others standards, this is neither music to play for your mammy nor a gig to bring her to.

A sure bet for an energetic set as the band run through their subversive classics. The Academy's intimate space seems a perfect match for their high-voltage, intense audience-act interaction approach to gigging.

Beck's Rhythm Series presents: Thundercat

You don't get to be bassist for both Flying Lotus and Kendrick Lamar without being a seriously knowledgeable musician, as well as a bit of a groover.

This concert is a great opportunity to witness this conventionally-behind-the-scenes man strut his stuff on stage.

Expect immensely impressive musical skills and some seriously cool vibes from this dude.
