Cork singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist LYRA has announced Dublin show at the Grand Social. A  perfect  blend  of  dark  electronic  pop, LYRA’s creativity  manifests  itself  in  songs, stories and art. Her love of vocal talents such as Kate Bush, Lykke Li and Bat for Lashes is obvious: part vintage, part contemporary, she exudes a sense of being free from the constraints of time and era. LYRA’s Rupert Christie (Kate Bush, Coldplay, Aurora) produced debut EP ‘W.I.L.D’ was self-released to critical acclaim and over a million streams on Spotify.

I Hate Hamlet

Set in John Barrymore’s old apartment in New York City – at the time, the author’s real-life home – the play follows successful television actor Andrew Rally as he struggles with taking on the dream role of Hamlet, dealing with a girlfriend who is keeping a firm grip on her chastity, and playing host to the ghost of John Barrymore, who, clothed as Hamlet, has come back to earth for the sole purpose of convincing Rally to play the part.

From the creators of the acclaimed How To Build Your First Robot comes Walkinstown. A surreal soiree that traverses the streets of Dublin’s past, present and future. Two humans on a comedically cosmic trajectory, led by love, lust and all that’s elementary. A staged anomaly, a melodramatic oddity. This is not a play. This, is a theatrical odyssey. Probably.

30 – 31 May
8:00pm , Smock Alley

Nix Moon

Five spirited scallywags more like brothers than friends, their live energy is both invigorating and infectious, never failing to get a crowd moving with their performances. Their unruly rhythms are hard to define within any one genre. The closest description; prog rock flirting with untamed psychedelic tendencies and Eastern influences.

31 May
8 pm , Whelan’s
