The MART Academy

While MART as a collective has been about since 2006, their physical presence in Dublin is still relatively new. With their first studios in the old fire station only opening, last year, their empire has quickly grown, encompassing 3 different buildings, a multitude of studios, exhibition spaces, a market, cafe and performance venue and now MARTcademy, a one stop shop for budding, developing and established artists. Covering a wide range of artistic and creative disciplines, there’s everything from an intro to turkish art to singing for the terrified. And they’re such sweeties, they even promise tea and cake for participants (let’s be honest, that’s what we all want!)So try something new this autumn, and head towards Rathmines for a little MARTucation! / Beccy Fitzpatrick

pop-up

Makers and Brothers and Others

It's the season to be seasonal. Makers & Brothers have joined with Others to stock the shelves of their tiny department store pop-up on Dame Lane. The careful edit of home wares, fashion and beauty focuses on alluring materials and quality craftsmanship. Old favourites Jerpoint and Clare-Anne O’Brien are joined by new names like fine jewellery designer Natasha Sherling and cut glass creator J. Hill’s Standard. Finish off your browse in their micro coffee shop; caffeine from Roasted Brown and nom-nom’s from Wildflower Bakery. Items start at 5 euro but quality is never in question. We love the tie selection, especially the linen number from Bonagrew. It makes us feel all Quadraphenia again. / Tom Dillon

Little Dragon

A satisfying re-up after this year’s Forbidden Fruit, Gothenburg’s Little Dragon will compress and concentrate their high tempos and giant rhythms to burst Vicar Street, their sound welcomely reminiscent of 80s Bow Wow Wow, with hints of Dirty Projectors and a Scandinavian noise like Sleigh Bells. Perhaps once amounting to an anomaly, their soulful, steady vocals, and fusion of punk and R&B with a certain synth and electro-clash, suddenly make sense in the context and current rise of the new-New-wave, Little Dragon an early, funkier entry in what’s emerging today with Blood Orange, The Weeknd and FKA twigs. Touring with their latest album, Nabuma Rubberband, and its offshoot singles, Little Dragon carry in tow their expanding and very substantial body of work, drawing from an impressive four albums to craft a joyful, filler-less setlist. / Ross McDonnell

Robin Ince

When he's not Ted Talking or irreverently puncturing the world of science with Brian Cox on his Infinite Monkey Cage podcast, Robin Ince is on the road with his comedic charm and nook and cranny insights. His latest show Blooming Buzzing Confusion examines Milgram, McLuhan and experiments into the mind, Robin tries to work out if we can arm ourselves against mass media despots and live life pragmatically or will we always just be clumsy animals justifying each mistake with a well-honed alibi? Delve inside this curious mind and chortle at his id infused anecdotes and observations. If you like your humour distilled through a more cerebral prism, then the answer where to find it is blooming, buzzing and simple to find. Win Tickets / Zach Joyce

gig exhibition

Lost Wednesdays

The people of Homebeat just keep getting it right. They stage the most gorgeous gatherings of songsters and music lovers at their occasional pop-up events, lure us to deepest Kerry for Fading Light Festival, and have now teamed up with the RHA for this dreamily named night of music, art and food. With the FUTURES 14 exhibition of young artist works currently on view, the hallowed surrounds of the gallery make the perfect backdrop for the floaty, poppy synth sounds of little xs for eyes (yes, that’s all lowercase), a DJ set from Sleep Thieves, visuals from Le Tissier and spoken word poetry, all while you guzzle pulled pork and beer. Ending at 10:30, it makes a very civilised option for mid- week revelling, if you’re so inclined. / Alex Calder

Cheatahs

Not quite as gauzy and diaphanous as the sound of Ride, not as regularly percussive as Swervedriver, Cheatahs seem to generate more column inches through music journalists’ attempts to provide appropriate comparisons than declaring whether or not they are any good. Uh huh. I’m here to tell you that they are really very good indeed, despite being rather derivative. This London-based multinational four-piece make a sound (or a number of sounds) that appears to have been recorded in 1992, but because it was perhaps recorded at the farthest reaches of the cosmos, is only reaching our lug-holes now. I suppose that makes them revivalists to some, but this is beneath my interest. This is a band making great music that derives from other great music. Stop overthinking it and listen. / Mr & Mrs Stevens
