Gig News Roundup: Rusangano Family, Iron Maiden, DJ Yoda & more

There’s been another wave of excellent gig announcements lately, so State has picked out the best of the bunch and collected them below in all of their live-music glory. Ticket details, the wheres, the whens, what more could you ask for?

The Gloaming

The eclectic-trad troubadours have announced their only Dublin shows in 2017 for the National Concert Hall, taking in four very special performances from Saturday 11th – Tuesday 14th March. Tickets? You betcha. €35 a pop, available here, from 9am Friday 30th September.

Iron Maiden

Iconic British metallers Iron Maiden have announced a stop off at Dublin’s 3Arena next year as part of their Book of Souls World Tour. Catch them on May 6th before Brucey flies them on to Manchester. Tickets are on sale from 9am, 30th September and can be found here.

Nightmares On Wax & Marshall Jefferson

Nice. Just nice. Legendary Warp Records mainstay Nightmares On Wax (George Evelyn), as well as house pioneer Marshall Jefferson, along with Baba Robijn, will play a special Pyg Sundays presents Halloween party at Powerscourt on October 30th. Get your tickets here. Also, CHOON…


Wicklow alt-rock outfit Enemies have announced a show for Dublin’s Vicar Street on the 18th of December. Certainly a step up for the lads, the announcement comes as details of new album Valuables begin to emerge. Watch this space.  Tickets, priced at €20 go on sale Friday, 23rd September at 9am and can be found here.

Rusangano Family

Truly one of Irish hip hop’s finest prospects, Rusangano Family have announced an upcoming headline show at Whelan’s on November 26th. The trio of God Knows, MuRli and mynameisjOhn created one of the album’s of the year in Let The Dead Bury The Dead, and their live shows are positively savage. Go see them for the sum of €16, with tickets available here. Bargain.


Doubling up as both a headline show and launch party for new album Be Honest and Fear Not, Limerick melodic alt-rockers windings will take to the stage of Whelan’s, Dublin, on October 29th, with support from the most-excellent Slow Riot. Tickets are just €15 and can be found here. Nice.

DJ Yoda

More Halloween goodness in the form of DJ Yoda doing a Stranger Things DJ set on October 30th in Dublin’s Wigwam basement. Get freaked with his recent Stranger Things mixtape below.


Duluth indie-rockers Low have announced three Christmas Irish shows. Having released their 1999 Christmas album to much festive fanfare, it’s only appropriate that the band play during the festive period. Alan Sparhawk and co. will take in Belfast’s Empire on the 12th of December, Dublin’s Christchurch on the 13th of December, and Kilkenny’s Set Theatre on the 14th of December. Ho, ho, ho! Tickets can be found here.
