Bud Rising festival is happening all over Dublin this weekend, from Thursday until Monday with a religious gap on Friday. They've bagged at least one band well worth seeing per day, so instead of reviewing the bands afterwards (resulting in you missing out!) I'll stick up 2 of each bands best mp3s now so you know who to go see.
