Alternative/roots music/Celtic four-piece The Rye will bring their "savage driven ceoil" to the Roisín Dubh. The Rye present one of the freshest and most exciting approaches to Irish Music, with the ability "to make even a stone statue tap its feet" (John O'Hara, The Galway Music Scene Review). Roisín Dubh, Tuesday 9pm. 7 euro/5 euro

Kevin Melly -lead vocals, acoustic guitar
Cian Mulligan -electric guitar, banjo
Barry Wallace -bass, banjo
Dessie Harrington -drums

The Tectonics are a little bomb waiting to go off. A punchy powerpop trio, with a rock'n'roll edge and more hooks than Hugh Duffy's fishing tackle shop!
Marcus Molloy on bass and Seamus Sullivan on drums (once the rhythm section of The Big Geraniums) provide pumping rhythms pushing incessantly to the dancefloor. The spice in the sauce comes from the spikey guitar of Eoin O'Brien (former member of Kila, Cookers and Claydolls), while all three contribute their vocal harmonies peppering their three-minute fillets of pop. Kelly's, Thursday 9pm. 5 euro
