Dublin Event Guide (9-05-16 – 15-05-16)

And so, as the weeks continue to tumble past…we look out at the bright city of Dublin and say ‘what ya got for us?’

A couple of new plays, with Natural History of Hope at the Project and Othello at the Abbey. The Gay Theatre Festival also runs until May 15th, with a variety of new work and is always worth supporting!

The live music scene isn’t dazzling, but there is the Hot 8 Brass band in the Sugar Club. Dylan Tighe also has a  3D Listening Event at the Lighthouse on Tuesday in support of his new album Wabi-Sabi Soul. No, we don’t know what a 3D listening event means, but it sounds like fun!

The Patrick Hennessy Exhibition at IMMA is worth checking out. The RHA Annual Exhibition is in full swing.

Gigs


Hot-8

And if last week was dull, this week is… a bit worse! Still, there’s a few gigs worth a mention, particularly the Irish bands with Cian Nugent, HamsandwicH, The Mighty Stef, Roisin O. The Hot 8 Brass Band also play a couple of nights in the Sugar Club. Is there anyone that hasn’t seen them there at this stage? They may have squatters rights on that stage.
