N11 Upgrade Proposed Start Date 2027November 12, 2019
I’m waiting for my man, 26 dollars in my hand, up to Lexington, 125…
Another week, another interstellar line-up of groovy Greystones gigs for your listening and dancing pleasure.
As always, the week would not be complete with the three diddley-aye fixes available – Tuesday’s open session in Dann’s, Brian Farrell and co gathering around the Horse fire on Wednesdays, and Ger Doyle caught in fiddle-driven time warp every Thursday in Dann’s. Forever. And ever.
The big one on Thursday is a big-screen outing at The Whale for Richard Curtis and Danny Boyle’s new romantic comedy, Yesterday, wherein a struggling young singer/songwriter comes out of a concussion to find that he’s the only one in the world who’s ever heard of The Beatles. Imagine! It’s just €10 for this Fab Four night out, with – yay! – there’s free freshly-popped popcorn for everyone in the audience.
The big gig on Friday is Paul Howard talking Schmidt at The Whale – an intimate one-off that, naturally enough, sold out in about 10 minutes. You can join the cancellation list here.
To make sure your Friday night is a-rockin’, hot mama Mia Parsons returns to Dann’s, whilst upstairs at The Hot Spot, the feckers are taking another nap.
On Saturday, The Adele Experience returns to The Whale for a third time – which is a reflection on just how close singer Katherine Headon is to the Tottenham titan. With a full 8-piece band behind her, get ready to throw off your inhibitions. And your corset.
Making sure that your joints are rockin’ on a Saturday night, it’s Quest For Ted at Lee’s, Something Else at The Beach House and Lisa Kavanagh over in Pluck’s.
On Sunday afternoon, two goodies to choose from. The Whale continue their live satellite broadcasts at 3pm, with The Bolshoi Ballet taking on Adolphe Adam’s Le Corsaire. For those who want a bit of deep, deep culture in their lives. Whilst taking shelter from the rain.
Over at The Hot Spot, it’s Pat’s Fireside Sessions, kicking off at 4.30pm. Free admission, but donations are welcome. And there’s even a chance this week that Elvis will make a cameo…
As always, don’t forget to check out The Whale, Pluck’s, and The Hot Spot for all the groovy gigs happening over the coming weeks – plus, of course, the finest bar on the planet, The Harbour Bar.
