Dublin Event Guide (1-2-16 – 7-2-16)

And so January departs and it is February once more! Is it officially Spring? Depends on who you ask. There are a few new plays with Big Maggie in the Gaiety and Trainspotting in Smock Alley. There’s also the return of Theatre Upstairs with a new play called Couples+ Pairs.

It’s a slow enough week in music, but there are Youth Lagoon and Greg Dulli, both in Whelans next Saturday and Sunday night.

If you’re close to the RHA the Mick O’Dea exhibition is pretty damn cool! The Nick Miller in IMMA also comes highly recommended.
