Joint Policing Public MeetingMarch 10, 2019
You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead…
And if you’re in any way keen to make some new memories, likes of cultural kicks to get your mojo rising this week – including Christy Dignam and Joe Jewell, the CCA Players’ award-winning production of Steinbeck’s Of Mice And Men, strangers on a Wicklow beach plotting darkness in The Tide, the Arclight Drama Studio gang’s production of As You Like It, and, yep, lots more besides…
As always, there are three diddley-aye fixes available each week – 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.
Wednesday, and the big one is the CCA Players’ production of the Steinbeck classic Of Mice And Men, taking place over the next three nights at The Castle Inn. Already an award winner, incredibly, tickets are just €5, and are available from the school and the venue.
On Thursday, it’s the bould Cat Fury’s Psychedelic Sessions over at The Mollys, making sure that your groovy weekend starts nice and early, whilst over at The Whale, Christy Dignam and Joe Jewell’s night sold out within days. You can book for their May return here.
To make sure your Friday night is full of middle-aged kicks right through the night, The Meakins are at Dann’s, whilst upstairs in The Hot Spot, hip-hop/r’n’b maestro Austin Sexton is flying all the way in from north LA to get you groovin’.
The big one on Friday though is Fair City‘s Pat Nolan bringing Tara Maria Lovett’s acclaimed two-hander The Tide to Greystones, Killian Filan and Ann Russell playing the strangers on a Wicklow beach who decide to help each other with their not-so-loved loved ones. A perfect date play, in other words…
Saturday, and the bould Woodsy is back at The Beach House, whilst over at Lee’s in Kilcoole, Night Life are in de house.
As always, don’t forget to check out The Whale (including Greystones Film Club goodies and those live satellite link-ups), Pluck’s, and The Hot Spot for all the groovy gigs happening over the coming weeks, plus, of, course, perhaps the finest bar on the planet, The Harbour Bar, which is always free, always groovy, and always should have been built in Greystones.
