Thursday 21st November; The Lumineers @ The o2
Folk and rock trio The Lumineers are set to play The o2 this Thursday 21st of November. Their debut single "Ho Hey" was probably one of the biggest songs of 2013, and undoubtedly a very catchy song. After their two founding members, Wesley Schultz and Jeremiah Fraites, began wcriting music in 2005, it wasn't until December 2012 when their self-titled album started climbing the Billboard 200.
Unfortunately, standing tickets for this event are sold out. But seated tickets are still available from here; http://www.ticketmaster.ie/The-Lumineers-tickets/artist/1498863

This Thursday, Friday AND Saturday; Kodaline @ The Olympia Theatre
Dublin band Kodaline will play three sell-out gigs this week in Dublin's Olympia Theatre. Childhood friends Steve, Mark and drummer Vinny May met at a younger age, living within two minutes of each other, and attending school choir together - which they admit they joined in a bid to pick up girls. After creating the band, they recruited bassist Jason Boland and began writing music for two straight years, using past relationships and heartbreak to inspire much of their music.
When questioned on where the name "Kodaline" came from, band member Mark said “We made it up ourselves, but we later found out it’s a character on f***in’ World Of Warcraft. I promise you, we’ve never even played the game. It’s just a bizarre coincidence.”
With plans of another EP, live dates and a debut album in the pipeline, the future is looking bright for Kodaline.
Kodaline - 'All I Want'
Friday 22nd November - Glow In The Dark @ The Village
The adventurous duo that is GLOWINTHEDARK have been the talk of Ibiza all summer thanks to successful collaborations with both Chuckie and David Guetta. Which is why there's no surprise they are the perfect act for The Village this Friday night to kick off the winter season.
GLOWINTHEDARK is made of Albert Harvey and Kevin Ramos, who grew to be a strong duo, inspired by their heroes Daft Punk, N*E*R*D and Coldplay, and began producing their own tracks lying between the hip-hop and electronic genre.
After playing sets at the likes of Dirty Dutch events, the Miami Winter Music Conference, Mysteryland, Story Miami, Pacha Brazil, Ministry of Sound London and Tomorrowland - they crossed paths with David Guetta during the Winter Music Conference in Miami and it wasn't long before they were in the studio together, where they created club banger, ‘Ain’t A Party’.

Saturday 23rd November; Ben Klock @ The Twisted Pepper
Resident at Berghain for the last ten years, Berliner Ben Klock has earned his reputation as a leader of the techno genre. Never satisfied by what is expected of him or the ‘Berghain techno’ stereotype of stoney-faced thump-thump, Klock’s sets, productions and mixes display a range of emotions, melodies and moods.
After playing Electric Picnic 2013 on the Red Bull Stage 'Rave In The Woods', Klock has certainly secured himself a loyal Irish fanbase and develops an atmosphere you won't want to miss this Saturday.
