A wet weekend in Dublin, so what is there to do? Well, no movie is jumping out at me, so I guess it’s all about the football (seriously, did you think I’d […]
Eigse is the Carlow Art Festival, and is generally worth a visit. It is particularly strong in the visual arts, but also has theatre and music. There is art work by Alice […]
Sad news for all involved, as “Butlins have decided to end their six-year relationship with the festival.” I am a veteran of one Camber Sands experience, and I still have flash backs […]

I meant to post this a while back and just spotted it in my notes. Shotlisted for a 2011 UK VMA and directed by Ninian Doff the video for Fulton Lights “Staring Out The Window” is great fun. Putting human arms on crows is lots of fun. One of the crows even plays the drums!
It’s sad to be thinking of the dark days of October, but here’s something to look forward in the month where the leaves die and it starts getting dark around tea time […]
First off, what of last weeks lot. Well, Promethus has a disappointment, it looked nice but the story was a bit of a mess. The RHA nd IMMA in Earlsfort terrace come […]
Ah pants, the movie I’ve been looking forward to for months turns out to be dead average! Don’t you hate it when that happens. Just like Fox Mulder, I wanted to believe, […]
Dan Deacon is back, with a new album ‘America’ released on the 27th of August. They say he’s found a new quieter self, but there’s not evidence on the first single ‘Lots’ […]
Trinity college is going all Shakey this summer, with a festival of his work that will include up to 500 performers and take place in 50 venues around the city. A lot […]
Just as nothing ruins a gig like a lousy venue (ladies and gentlemen I present the Troxy in Limehouse), a really great venue adds massively to the experience. Sadly, these are exactly […]
We love Lana here at the Workhorse, from the top of her freaky head to the bottom of her freaky toes! One of our most viewed posts is about her so we […]
Watch Beck’s son Cosimo (8 years old!) throw some serious shapes on stage!
1. Forbidden Fruit – Kilmainham Hospital Grounds – it’s the biggest festival to hit the city so far this year, with bands such as Wilco, New Order and Beirut hitting our shores. […]
You probably already know if you’re going to like Moonrise Kingdom. Wes Anderson is one of those directors where you know what you’re going to get. Still, he’s just about the only […]
It’s a bit of a festival face-off this weekend, with Link going up against the Soul Picnic (could they not have found another weekend?). Oddly enough, this event has lasted six years, […]
Love: live music day is the 21st of June, and more than 200 acts will play live across the country. It’s a mixed bag of events, which doesn’t have any particular big […]
What do you get if you cross one spoon of the Handsome Furs and one spoon of Spoon (sorry, couldn’t resist) Well, the answer is obviously the Divine Fits, the new band […]
What the hell is Link Culturefest, I hear you scream from the top of your lungs? Well, according to the web site, it’s… “A weekend festival in Dublin that aims to showcase […]
The new addition is top of the list. Not sure when this one was announced, but it slipped through my net anyway! Howe Gelb is back in Whelans, for another low key […]
Seeing as the night show sold out, the promoters have taken the unusual approach of putting on an afternoon for the Monsters of Ambient show today in the Sugar Club. Now you’ve […]
First, the track itself which is an excellent slow jam, followed by Adam Bainbridge’s instructional video in which he teaches the young Ramon how to make the track itself… replete with dancing at […]
This week sees the release of the Raid, the heir apparent to the title of best action movie, that has the critics wetting themselves to prove how butch they are, and that […]
We don’t talk a whole lot about design on NMWH but this is a very cool and creative take on the medium of business cards by designer Silvio Teixeira. (Also, the music is by tUnE-yArDs so that’s always good with us).
I went to this exhibition months ago, and always meant to mention it as it blew me away, but for whatever reason I never got around to it. Now I see that […]
Miss Hersh is giving it away again! I’ve spent most of my lunch time listening to her new work, and it seems top drawer! There’s a very simple button on the top […]
Brilliant! Directed by James Winters. Worked on with his wife, kids and their nephew to pay tribute to Adam “MCA” Yauch.
