Shonen Knife play Whelans on Saturday also. Dickie Rock play the Olympia on Sunday (go on, you know you want to!).

Theatre – The Theatre Festival is winding to it’s end, so it’s last chance saloon if you haven’t seen any so far. Anu’s The Boys of Foley Street is nothing less than fantastic. Conversations on a homecoming seems to be the best of Druid Murphy, but Whistle in the Wind is also worth seeing. Of the new additions this week, Mystery Magnet and The Coming Storm look like the could be good. Silent is at the Ballymun Axis which we will be reviewing later in the week.
