1. Christian Brotha’
Christian Collins Single Launch – Dublin Unitarian Church – 9th/8pm
We heard it through the old reliable grapevine that “this is Christian’s first ever organised gig on a grand scale and it’s to celebrate the release of his debut single, Sweet Divine. We were sent the long awaited single during the week and sure, it’s only gorgeous – what a voice. An intimate little launch party on Friday night that shouldn’t be missed. It’s only €5 on the door and you get a FREE single.
2. Makin Shapes
MAKINGS – Monroe’s Live, Galway – 10th/10pm
Just 24 hours after the release of their debut album Cognition, Makings will play Backstage @ Monroe’s Live. The lads are also stopping off in Waterford, Dublin, and London, but make sure you catch them in G-Town’s best venue; and then stumble over to Vinnie’s for Mexican chips after!
3. Indiependence Day
IndieCork 2015 – 4th – 11th Oct – Tickets
The IndieCork Festival has been running since Sunday, but there’s still ample time to catch some great films, from some equally great young and emerging film makers, in: The Gate Cinema and Firkin Crane.The Crane Lane is also hosting a lineup of gorgeous tunes; workshops will be held in Cork School of Music and Crawford College of Art & Design.
4. Super Sunday Session!
An Pucan – Forster Street, Galway
This place was recently renovated and by God does it look good; a lick of paint has done them wonders and now, you’re sure to find everyone in Galway, boozin and crusin in there on the day of Our Lord. There’s the breath-taking beer garden, the giant screens, friendly bar staff, and of course, some great hangover grub. A great way to finish the weekend.
