The Art of the Song

There were pop stars before and there have been pop stars since, yet nobody has had the same enduring appeal as David Bowie. The king of chameleons was the first and best when it came to combining music, art and fashion to such deadly effect. Throughout the ups (a dodgy hydraulic cherry picker would leave him suspended over the audience during the Diamond Dogs tour) and downs (his acting), highs (most of the mid-70s passed in a chemical haze) and lows (well Low actually), Bowie has earned his Godlike Genius status. Almost 50 years on from his first album the NCH plays host to a talented array of Irish musicians - including Lisa Hannigan, Jape, Duke Special and Adrian Crowley - giving their take on Bowie’s peerless back catalogue. The band for the evening features members of Solar Bears, This Is How We Fly and I Am The Cosmos. / Brian Keane

Telephones

Oh hello. I just called to say I love you. Oh wait. No. I just called to say are you going to Telephone’s second daytime party? We all knew staying up partying all night would come full circle, and now we are going to stay up and party all day, son! I don’t know about you, but dancing in the summer breeze makes me feel high, and lazing on a sunny afternoon enjoying a wonderful brunch makes me forget all about why I ever waited till night to let my hair down. Capturing a festival vibe without the mud and tents, enjoy the hip-hop bake sale, hopscotch competitions, and array of spinning DJs that recreate Will Smith’s anthem Summertime so succinctly I might just scream for ice cream. First one to double dutch get’s a 99 cone that actually only costs 99 cent! Madness! / Ciara Roche

Butter Making Workshop

Life really is about the simple things. Dark chocolate and wine, cheese on crackers, cider drinkers' love of cider during Irish heat waves or that first glug of water when you're rudely awakened, post festival, with a mouth as dry as my sense of humour. And then there's my favourite Sunday staple - 'shrooms and Superquinn sausages cooked in and served on a slice of brown, lathered in salted creamery butter goodness. For those of you still of Flora faith, Farmette, neé Imen McDonnell is at hand at Summer Rising to separate the butterfat from the buttermilk. Grab yourself an armful of jam jars and roll up your churning sleeves... Feck the horse outside, who's taking the horse to France? / Connor Clarke

IMMA Summer Party

Following the explosive, discotheque-freakshow launch party WERK (curated by THISISPOPBABY), IMMA’s Summer Rising Festival has been going down a treat with Dublin art-goers, foodies, musos and party monsters alike.

Boasting a range of delights to tickle fancies, food will feature from Dublin faves 3FE, Luncheonette,  A Killer Sandwich and Cake Cafe in collaboration with artist Fink, plus cocktails from House in Cork Opera House. Tasty vibes to be served up by Southampton beatster Gang Colours and the beautiful Dublin-based Somerville, with DJ sets from Donal Dineen, David Kitt and others to boot. Bound to be a gorgeous, lazy-hazy, easy evening. Win Tickets / Jack Gibson

Milton Jones / Sara Pascoe

The British answer to Emo Phillips will be gracing the Iveagh Gardens with his much anticipated presence. Yup, that's Milton Jones, the cleanest line merchant in comedy, the garishly shirted owner of one of the most vacant gazes I've ever witnessed, a childlike demeanor concealing razor sharp pun-based wit, coupled with specific and baffling imagery which transports the audience on a haribo acid trip. He is sharing the bill with Sara Pascoe, whose comedic star has been on the rise ever since she stole the show in short-lived Channel 4 show, Campus (from the makers of Green Wing, as we were told over and over again). She is at the vanguard of a wave of funny chicas who don't need to harp on about their anatomy to make you laugh, and her conversational, cool style makes for a easy, free-laughing environment. Tickle yo funny bones, ladz. / Kate Coleman

comedy

Eddie Pepitone

Watching Eddie Pepitone perform feels like a flurry of angry thoughts, cynicism and misery flying at your face like a swarm of killer midges. It's really funny though, in the same way that laughing at someone who just fell over, or listening to a tragicomic character who needs your sympathy recount yet more bad luck is. There's an element of 'sad dad' to Pepitone's ire, that renders his rage a little sweeter and more understandable. It's his conscience (referenced in the title of the doc on him, The Bitter Buddha), that makes him so palpably angry - then, his dissatisfaction plays out funny, apt and enlightening. Left of centre, cutting humour is what Pepitone will be delivering in his dry New York manner - call it a bite of the big apple. / Kate Coleman

Strange Weather

Our favourite topic of conversation, an apt icebreaker and filler of awkward silences; the unpredictable weather shapes the Irish character and the day-to-day mood of the nation. In Evelyn Cusack we trust. While we bask in above average temperatures and send 99’ ice cream sales to record highs, some parts of the West are still in the midst of repairing damage from February’s Perfect Storm. To say the least, our weather of recent years has had a strange disposition. The Romans named Ireland, “Hibernia” meaning ‘Land of Winter’ - perhaps in ancient times they, too, were left confused when it came to daily attire; flip-flops or Aran jumper? Strange Weather looks at future forecasts, how we can benefit from the climate chaos and asks if a cultural reshape needs to take place in order survive when strange weather hits./ Claire Mullane

Deep One Perfect Morning

The question ‘What does your home say about you?’ can receive a truthful answer only when asked of college students. From the sub-optimal furniture, curdled floor puddles and wayward Skittles, a competent man of forensics does not need to guess how these people live; everyone else covers their tracks and maintains their homes like showrooms. The group exhibition at the Kerlin seems to be arranged like a student residence. There are room dividers by Mark Francis and Isabel Nolan sustaining housemate détente, next to unaccounted for ‘Puke Patches’ by Sam Keogh that strains it; scattered are metal chairs with missing seats by Aleana Egan, and fixed to walls are pieces by Jan Pleitner and Liam Gillick. Nobody was home the perfect morning I was there – perhaps still out from the perfect night last night. / Olen Bajarias

Grease

As one of the only people in the universe who genuinely prefers Grease 2 to Grease 1, it physically hurts to admit that this is sure to be a gargantuan crowd pleaser. Grease follows the ultimate American teens, with their huge gas guzzling cars, non-existent parents and GI Joe pen pals. You'll have no trouble grooving in your seat to the songs - you've been murdering them since you were old enough to filch your Da's midlife crisis leather jacket and rockabilly dance on the shag carpet in front of the TV circa 1986. Get your pink ladies and T-Byrds all on brand, and colour co-ordinated, and dance your way down the stairs at the cinema, as if it's lunchtime at Rydell High and you just gotta dance, dance, dance. / Kate Coleman

The Sochi Project

When the International Olympic Committee awarded the 2014 Winter Olympics to Sochi, it prompted a few raised eyebrows. Located in a geographical area beset by conflict without the necessary infrastructure to hand, it didn't seem a natural fit for an international sporting event. Since 2007, Rob Hornstra and Arnold van Bruggen have embarked on a 'slow journalism' project to document the region before it found itself thrust into the international spotlight. Hornstra's compelling portraits depict civilians and towns that will never reap the economic benefits of Sochi 2014, while van Bruggen's enlightening text sheds desperately needed insight into an immensely complex geopolitical situation and an Olympic Games mired in controversy and farce. / Amy O'Connor

BADBADNOTGOOD

Having just released their third album III in May, BadBadNotGood have been spreading their hip-hop inflected jazz throughout Europe this summer, and with rave reviews following their last Irish gigs in Dublin and Cork they’ve decided to pop back for one more night at the Sugar Club. The trio, made up of Matthew Tavares, Chester Hansen and Alexander Sowinski bring an element of punk to their performances both live and in the studio, and having started out as students on a jazz program in Toronto, they soon realised their shared passion for hip-hop and began performing their favourite rap tunes as deconstructed jazz numbers. Since their humble beginnings in 2010 the trio (all in their early 20s) have backed Frank Ocean at Coachella, opened for Roy Ayers and recorded a live jam with Tyler the Creator. Support from God Knows + MynameisjOhn. / Dave Desmond
