    Avant-garde jazz-punks Robocobra Quartet play a double-headliner in Cork's Plug'd with Belfast's Junk Drawer on March 20.

    Long one of the best live bands on the island, have a listen to RQ's incredible second album Plays Hard To Get, which came in at #3 on our Irish albums of the year, and was nominated for the NI Music Prize. They've been described as Ornette Coleman-meets-Fugazi, and we'd be hard pushed to disagree, if you filter in some Robert Wyatt as a midpoint.

    Instrument-swapping Northern Irish indie-psych quartet Junk Drawer are about to release their debut album, Ready For The House. They recently won the NI Music Prize for Best Single 2019 for the Silver Jews-recalling 'Year of the Sofa'.

    Opening things is a one-off collaboration between experimental musician Icebear and sonic/visual artist Olivia Furey to finish up their Irish tour together.

    Admission costs €10 and doors open at 8pm.
