weekend roundup for the 20th of October

Friday: The New York Dolls at The Village, Steve Forbert at Whelan’s.

Saturday: The Stone Roses Experience at the Ambassador, Souls of Mischief at Crawdaddy, Fisz at the Temple Bar Music Centre, David Kitt at Whelan’s, and Zero 7 with Jose Gonzales and Sia at the Olympia [which is going to be so ridiculously awesome I can’t even think straight].

Sunday: Ryan Adams and the Cardinals at the Olympia [you have no idea how sad I am that I can’t get tickets to see this], the Harlem Gospel Choir at the Pavilion, David Kitt at Whelan’s, and The Drifters at the Helix.

None of that whets your appetite? How about catching Marie Antoinette, opening this weekend at Cineworld? The Last Kiss, the new flick with Zach Braff, has just landed here in Dublin too. If you’re looking for something a little more meaty, Leonard Cohen: I’m Your Man has shown up at the Screen this week.

If theatre’s a little more your speed, you could go classic and see Wuthering Heights at the Pavilion, or you could take classic in a different direction and catch The Rocky Horror Picture Show in all it’s rice-throwing glory at the Spirit.(Saturday night the Spirit is also throwing The Rocky Horror Convention for the Unconventional, for a double-set of Rocky Horror Pleasure.) While I’m interested in seeing Branwen (despite my Welsh being beyond rusty–luckily it’s trilingual), I’m definitely going to get out to see Coraline next weekend, both of which are at the Project Arts Centre on East Essex Street.

Leave a comment if you’re going to Zero 7, or any of these performances!
