Gigs & Festivals

Paul Banks

Paul Banks has, in the same succinct style that prompted him to title his new solo LP ‘Banks’ (out via Matador on 22 Oct), detailed four Irish/British dates. Just four, and here they are:

20 Jan: Dublin, Academy
21 Jan: Glasgow, King Tut’s
22 Jan: Manchester, Sound Control
24 Jan: London, Koko

And this is a link to download the long player’s very first track, ‘The Base’, for free.
