Launch of StoryMap Dublin

StoryMap FI

    StoryMap is a new multimedia project that gives people an alternative tour of Dublin through the kind of bizarre stories you’d have to drink in Grogan’s for a few years to gather. In fairness, that’s quite possibly exactly what the people behind the site did, but they’ve gathered some quality tales from a … Continue reading

Exchange Energy

Most of you are probably familiar with Exchange already from their extremely grand opening last summer and the events held there subsequently. So then, I don’t need to bore you with the backstory and the details. I’ll get right to the important part: Exchange needs more volunteers. Without volunteers to man the front desk and … Continue reading

Saturday is a Battlefield

Quick and belated mentions for a few fine ways to destroy brain-cells, ear-drums and reputations tonight. The best things come in threes and that’s how tonight rolls. I’m discounting the Xiu Xiu gig in Whelan’s, cos in fairness, if you’re into Xiu Xiu, you’re probably going and if you’re not… well, I wouldn’t recommend dropping … Continue reading

Yacht Rock

Yacht Rock is the term used to describe a unique brand of smooooooth music that was hugely popular in the late ’70s and early ’80s. That was then and this is now. Some crowd of comedy geniuses gathered together a couple of years ago to make a series of online shows telling the stories behind … Continue reading

Swap Shop

If, unlike me, you’re the type who occassionally “buys clothes”, you more than likely have some items in your collection that you’d rather relegate to distant memory. Most of us regularly think about dropping that bag-full to the local charity shop but the plan rarely comes to fruition. If only there was a more fun, … Continue reading

This week I will be mostly… Miami Vice!

Flashy stuff, eh? Well, it’s gonna be that kinda night. Vice Magazine are throwing a shindig in the Bernard Shaw this Thursday 19th November so chaos and camera flashes are confirmed guests. Also confirmed are Robotnik, who will be doing what he does in the smoking garden at 9pm, and myself, who will be doing … Continue reading

You can’t spell Culture without Cult

Well now, isn’t Dublin the exciting little town to live in at the moment. If we’re not playing destruction derby with our public transport system, we’re charging people for “free” bikes and hurling the nation’s pot of gold down a financial well. This week though, we’re taking pride in two of our greatest exports: Guinness and … Continue reading

Weekend Photos

As promised and as late as usual, here’s some photos from the weekend’s festivities. Above is a quick shot I took when we arrived in to the Attention Bebe party in Tripod on Saturday night around 1am. Full photo-sets from the Junah instore in Tower and the single launch gig in Whelan’s are on my … Continue reading

Elephino

Meant to post about this back on Friday as advance warning of the exhibition, but alas, circumstances got the better of me once again. Photos from all the weekend’s hijinks are coming shortly. On Saturday evening, I had a few photographs in the Elephino exhibition at The Back Loft at La Catedral Studios, St Augustine … Continue reading

Junah – Low La Day

Dublin band Junah are finally ready to enter the flourishing market of legal CD sales and do so with their debut single “Low La Day” which is released this Friday 12th June. Junah have been around for a few years and have built up quite a reputation on the live circuit. They’ve been working on … Continue reading
