The 5 best things happening in Dublin this Thursday

It seems a host of the most creative folks around have decided to have events this Thursday…


A debut Irish film screening, burgeoning hip hop and R&B, a hometown hero, an exhibition launch and short films for choice. Here are a selection of exciting goings-on in the capital tonight.

Kuso – A Film by Steve aka Flying Lotus at The Sugar Club

‘Kuso’ features original music from Aphex Twin, Thundercat, Akira Yamoaka and FlyLo himself, and stars the likes of Tim Heidecker, Hannibal Buress, George Clinton and more.

“Broadcasting through a makeshift network of discarded televisions, Kuso is tangled up in the aftermath of Los Angeles’ worst quake nightmare. Travel between screens and between aftershocks into the twisted lives of the survived.”

The film starts at 9pm, doors at 8pm. Click here for more.

Chris Kabs & JYellowL at The Sound House

We had JYellowL at our spoken word event with Word Up Collective last Saturday and he blew the sold out crowd away. His pieces are thoughtful and insightful, much like his music. He’s joining local producer and vocalist Chris Kabs in Wiley Fox/Sound House for a double headliner.

Support from Nonzus Magnus and loads more. Doors at 7pm, click here for tickets.

Mik Pyro & The Shogunz Of Stank at The Bowery

Once the lead singer of celebrated Irish band Republic of Loose, over the past few years Mik Pyro has been working on his solo material. While the influences on Loose were more hip hop and funk leaning, Mik’s new projects retain those elements while wandering into the realm of blues and jazz.

He’s joined by The Shogunz Of Stank, plus DJ support. Doors open in The Bowery at 8pm and it’s free in. Click here for more. Check out an interview with Mik here where he discusses the punk elements of modern hip hop and his Loose legacy.

New Masters Exhibition Launch at The Fumbally Exchange

If you haven’t noticed, The Fumbally Exhange on Dame Lane has been drenched in colour. It’s all part of the New Masters Exhibition with Hens Teeth which is “championing the bold”.

The official launch night is tonight from 6pm with cocktails supplied by Smirnoff.

Shorts for Choice at Filmbase

Filmbase are hosting an evening of short films, live music and burlesque performances and discussion hosted by Emily O’Callaghan.

It’s BYOB and there’s no entry fee, but there’s a suggested donation of €5. All funds raised will be donated to the Abortion Support Network which “provides accommodation and financial assistance to women forced to travel from Ireland to have a safe and legal abortion”.

Doors at 7pm, click here for more information on the films featured.
