Celebrating Cultures, Promoting Integration
1. Tonstartssbandht at The Workmans Club
The psychedelic rock American band Tonstartssbandht has arrived in Dublin today to bring us all into a new dimension of zingy throwback sounds from the 1960s and all the urgency of punk rock’s heyday as they set the stage on fire at the Workman’s Club.
The two Brooklyn-based brothers, Andy and Edwin White, are already indie scene favourites, and now they’re trying to worm their way into our hearts. Their sound is so endearing, you’d be cruel not to let them in!
Where: The Workmans Club, 10 Wellington Quay, Dublin

3. Adele Is Younger Than Us at Civic Theatre
Sally and Rhiannon are not Adele. In any possible way. But what did she ever achieve? Worldwide success, 8 Brits, 10 Grammys, an Academy Award, three double platinum selling albums. What have Sally and Rhiannon achieved? Two years of unemployment, a permanent shaving rash and four failed driving tests.
Adele Is Younger Than Us is the culmination of years of optimistic frustration wedged into an hour of musical stand-up. Watch as Sally and Rhiannon emerge from the cocoon of long and painful adolescence into the world of womanhood, only to realise they weren’t Adele-like butterflies at all. They were moths. Stiff and Kitsch will take you on a journey through the trials and tribulations of love, with all the heartbreak but none of the Grammy’s like Adele. You’ve all been there, that shattering realisation that you are not a multi award winning, global record breaking pop superstar – and not only that, but you’re also actually older than Adele.
Join them in their attempt to find a man, fall in love and Set Fire To The Rain*
*Disclaimer: They won’t be able to, they’re not Adele.
Where: The Square, Tallaght, Dublin 24
When: Tue 21 February – Sat 25 February
Price: €14 – €16
