Things to do

Things to do in Dubln – 9th July – 15th July

This week it’s time to get break out your white coat and clipboard this week, as we’re getting all scientific on your ass, with EuroScience Open Forum in town, you won’t be able to spit for hitting an Nobel prize winner (well, if you’re down near the Convention centre anyway.

1. A Nightmare on Elm Street – 23.00 – IFI – Friday 13th – Yes, the horrorthon are back, and this time it’s a classic for their usual Friday the 13th slot at the IFI. I haven’t seen this movie in years, so hope it holds up.

2. Low – Button Factory – 10th July – Ok, Explosions in the sky couldn’t make it, but if I’m being honest, this is the half of the show I’d prefer to see anyway. Low haven’t been in town for many a moon, and I’m looking forward to seeing what they’re up to.

3. Tuneyards – Vicar Street – 15th July – The second of the unmissable gigs this week, and this time it’s Merrill back in town with her Ukulele. If you haven’t seen her before, beg, borrow or steal to get these.

4. UCD Science film festival– A variety of movie about Science! It actually started on the 5th of July, so I’m a little late with this one, but still, worth checking out. It’s part of city of Science celebrations, that are all here.

5. ESOF – Hard to ignore this one, although I’d say you’ll be doing well to get in!

Special mention for House in the Abbey which has been getting pretty amazing reviews from all I’ve spoken to, it finishes on Satuday. There’s a new Michael Coleman show at the Cross Gallery and a new Summer show in the Kerlin Gallery with work by Phil Collins (no, not him), Merlin James, David Godbold and Mark Francis among others.

The lighthouse is also showing ‘Children who chase..’ with a Q&A with the director (again) tonight at 8!
