Things To Do In Dublin (17-08-15 – 23-08-15)

In Music, Deerhoof in Whelans, the Jungle Brothers in the Sugar Club and other than that… not much to be honest. I guess we’re all gearing up for Electric Picnic then? The National Concert Hall has a night of John Williams music also.

Theatre has a few new ones, with the Bog of Cats being the main event in the Abbey. There’s also FOCUS in Players Theatre and the Tiger Deli in the New Theatre and The Quiet Land at Bewleys (Powerscourt).
