Dublin Event Guide (18-04-16 – 24-04-16)

There’s some really good gigs this week with Explosions in the Sky, Kimya Dawson & Little Wings and Ought among many others. It’s rare to have so many to choose from!

Cascando is the big event in theatre this week, with Pan Pan exploring another radio play by Beckett. The image below might give you an idea of what to expect with hooded individuals and reflective surfaces! We shall see but it looks like it could be a lot of fun! Anu also kick off Sunder this week, but that’s been sold out since the day the tickets were released.

The Patrick Hennessy Exhibition at IMMA is worth checking out. The RHA Annual Exhibition is in full swing. The Nick Miller in IMMA also comes highly recommended.
