Things To Do In Dublin (20-04-15 – 26-04-15)

Chaos-featured

Musictown is sadly gone! It was fun while it lasted, and will hopefully visit again next year. This week we have Sharon Von Etten, Le Galaxie, Will Butler, UFO and the Avant Gardaí in town. There’s also a mass of new theatre, with In On It, The Kiss, Charolais, Madam de Markievicz on Trial and the Games People Play, among others.
