January Gigs of the Month

gnisqWelcome to the first monthly edition of our guide to great gigs taking place in venues all across Northern Ireland.

The start of January has been quiet on the gig scene as we gently ease ourselves into 2015. However the next couple of weeks more than make up for that temporary break.

There are already some mouth watering shows announced for later this year as 2015 lines up to be an exciting year for NI gig goers. Here are a few selected gigs, coming to a venue near you in January!

Friday 16th January

In An Instant / Mere Moths / This Is Me Dead

Pavilion Bar, Belfast

Continuing to make their mark on the local scene, these young pop rockers headline the monthly Modern Life is Rubbish night at the Pavilion Bar, Ormeau Road. Expect catchy tunes from these boys!

Friday 16th January

Mark Lanegan Band

The Limelight, Belfast

The former Screaming Trees and Queens of the Stone Ages singer tours his album Phantom Radio.

Tuesday 20th January

Jessie Ware

Mandela Hall, Belfast

The much under rated Jessie Ware takes to the Mandela Hall stage to tour her second album, Tough Love, which involved collaborations with Sam Smith, Julio Bashmore and Ed Sheeran. A talent not to be missed.

The ex Busted and Fightstar front man brings his acoustic show to Belfast.

Wednesday 28th January

Goons / Pigsaspeople / Loris / Waldorf & Cannon

Thursday 29th January

Rocking For The Children’s Hospice

The Titanics / The Penny Dreadfuls / Green Monkey / Clodagh Quinn

Black Box, Belfast

This charity gig is raising funds for the Children’s Hospice in NI, reason enough to attend. But with a line up of some of the most exciting local bands of last year, it would be rude to miss it.
