Things To Do In Dublin (16-02-15 – 22-02-15)

A Midsummer Night’s Dream officially opens in the Abbey this week, directed by Gavin Quinn of Pan Pan. There’s also  the Collaborations festival at Smock Alley and Orphans in the New Theatre.

Another fairly impressive week of gigs in Dublin with Hamell On Trial, Jape, POND, Two Gallants, Ólafur Arnalds,  Ben Folds and Father John Misty, to name but a few! I could happily be at four gigs in Thursday night, which is always a bit annoying. Choices, choices, choices…
