Live Music in Dublin – 08-04-19

Live Music in Dublin – 08-04-19

Musictown is in full swing (April 5th – 21st) and is well worth checking out. Otherwise, we’d recommend Gabriel Kahane at the NCH and then there’s lots of local talent, with Glenn Hansard, Inni-K and Damien Dempsey, among others.

If you’re feeling like something a bit more unusual, Music Current 2019 gives you “a showcase of contemporary Irish electronic music and new international repertoire.”

2. Glen Hansard – Vicar Street – Tues/ Wed
3. The Specials – Olympia Theatre – Thurs
