After a brief quiet spell, we’ve hit festival season in Dublin, so prepare to to be busy! Well, you could just choose to ignore it all, but you’d be crazy, quite frankly. We had a look at the Fringe Festival in some detail here, but we’ll spell it out again below, for the slow learners amongst you!
Music – For those with tickets to Two door cinema club, we salute you, as their show in the Academy on Friday will probably be their last in a small venue in Dublin, as they play the O2 in a couple of months. The Futureheads also play Whelans on Friday and Bonobo play a DJ set in the Academy on Friday also. The View play Whelans on Sunday.
Cinema – This is the week for ‘Shut up and play the hits’ to get it’s fancy airing, but it gets a general release shortly. Film Fatale in the sugar club show Sabrina in the Sugar club on Saturday. There’s also a screening of Lawless with John Hillcoat and Nick Cave live stream on Wednesday. 20-20 continues in the IFI, with more movies than i care to mention here.
and includes such names as…. Howard Jacbonson, Philippa Gregory, IMPAC winner Gerbrand Bakker and readings by superb writers such as Joseph O’Connor, Jonathan Dee, John Banville, Esther Freud, Daniel Woodrell, David Mitchell and Katie Fforde…
It’s a bit wild out there alright, watch yourself crossing the streets!
