This weekend a trio of great acts will perform in popular quayside venue, the Spirit Store, with each bringing something different to the stage.

On Friday night, May 3, Fionn Regan, who has recently released his fourth studio album, will take to the Spirit Store stage and captivate the audience with tracks that echo classic singer-songwriter recordings such as Jackson C. Frank and Elliott Smith.

Regan’s new album ‘The Bunkhouse Vol. I: Anchor Black Tattoo’ was self-recorded in Regan’s Bunkhouse studio with a 4-track and single microphone, making it his most stripped back album yet and shows the artist bursting with imagination and humour.

It covers themes ranging from conversations with the Irish Sea (Mizen to Malin) to the hallucinatory (St. Anthony’s Fire). Doors To Regan’s gig open at 8pm and tickets are 18 euros.

Irish singer/songwriter Mundy will perform on Saturday, May 4 and with huge radio hits like July and Mexico, Mundy promises a great evening’s entertainment.

There will be new songs as well as lots of favourites.

Mundy is one of a number of artists to successfully make the transition from street busking in Dublin to international stardom during the ‘90s.

His mainly acoustic, folk-based pop/rock has been compared to Damien Rice and Josh Ritter, however, his style is more upbeat and celebratory than either, and his jangle pop influence and tendency to experiment with unconventional sonic textures and beats further distinguishes him. Doors to this gig open at 8pm and tickets are 15 euros.

With the return of iconic rock god David Bowie who has been gracing almost every magazine and newspaper lately, audiences are sure to enjoy Irish Bowie tribute band Rebel Rebel’s performance on Sunday night, May 5.

The six experienced musicians that make up the band have recently announced tour dates around the country to celebrate Bowies first album release in over a decade.

Rebel Rebel play a costumed show of Bowie’s greatest hits and key album tracks from ‘Space Oddity’ to ‘Where Are We Now’. Doors open at 8pm and tickets are 12.50 euros.

Tickets to all of the above gigs can be purchased online at www.spiritstore.ie or from McAteers Food House on Clanbrassil Street.
