Weekend Gigs: 17-19 October 2008

Great weekend for gigs once again. At least one must-see show every night this weekend. Times New Viking, Los Campesinos! and No Age is probably the best billing of the year. Three great bands for under €16. How can you resist?

Oxjam on Saturday is a brilliant idea from secondary-school students to make money for Oxfam, and deserves every piece of support. In the evening, head over to Andrew’s Lane for Messiah J and the Expert’s album launch party. Sure to be great fun.

And on Sunday, Jenny Lewis plays a solo show at The Button Factory, showcasing her new album Acid Tongue, and may even throw in a Rilo Kiley tune or two.
