The start of the festival season may have taken the best out of you over the past few days, but if you're spirited enough to venture out again there's a great range of gigs on in the capital this weekend! Here's our pick of the very best..


Kodaline, Royal Hospital Kilmainham

Fresh off the back of international tours, these home grown indie rockers return for a special gig in the pleasant surroundings of the Royal Hospital in Kilmainham this Saturday. This is set to be a great and triumphant show! Support from Hudson Taylor.

Pretty Beast, Workmans

This Dublin-based outfit have been working tirelessly since emerging on the gig scene a few months ago and are now launching their debut EP, Content, in the Workmans Club this Friday. Expect a unique blend of thumping rock/electronic tunes and a buzzing performance.

Mumdance and Novelist, Twisted Pepper

A feast of exotic, urban tunes are in store for you this Friday in the Twisted Pepper. Mumdance, an acclaimed producer and remixer on Diplo’s Mad Decent label, headlines this one. Expect an unpredictable cocktail of UK- and South American-influenced urban sounds. Novelist, a hotly tipped MC from London’s resurgent grime scene, will also be performing on the night. Don't miss out!


Manu Chao, Royal Hospital Kilmainham

The magnetic French-born Manu Chao will be making a rare Irish appearance as the next act in the splendid series of gigs at this venue. Manu Chao infuses his work with numerous influences, both in terms of sound and languages. A veteran performer at this stage, Chao’s gigs are always very energetic affairs.

The Pig's Ear presents DJ Nature with a screening of NY77: The Coolest Year in Hell, The Sugar Club

The Sugar Club's dazzling series of movie and DJ nights continues with a screening of NY77, a film which chronicles the rise of disco which coincided with one of the Big Apple's darker periods.
