1. Meshuggah concert
Meshuggah, the Swedish extreme metal band from Umeå, formed in 1987, are one of the few purely and honestly lateral-thinking forces genuinely dedicated to pushing the boundaries of extreme music simply because doing so comes naturally to them. Unafraid to take risks and tackle new experiences, they create albums you can listen to six years later and still discover things you never noticed before.
It’s clear that something incredible is always waiting to be known, to be shown. With an innate belief in their own curiosity and imagination, MESHUGGAH strive for complete understanding of their musical universe. By doing so, they stand as stark reminders of why humanity exists at all: to question what we know and to continually wonder at the life that surrounds us… which ultimately challenges us to defy the very limits of how far the human spirit can soar.
Where: Vicar Street, 8-59 Thomas St, Merchants Quay, Dublin 8
When: Today, 19:00

2. West Side Story Musical at Bord Gáis Energy Theatre
I’m very happy to announce that one of the best musicals of all time will be back to make us enjoy once again!
Provocative finger snapping of street gangs, Puerto Rican girls’ whirling skirts on New York City’s flat roofs, derelict West Side back yards – just a few notes of Leonard Bernstein’s world-famous score, featuring songs such as Maria, Tonight, Somewhere, America and I Feel Pretty, immediately evoke these images of West Side Story.
Joey McKneely’s award-winning staging of West Side Story, the only production in the world to currently feature Jerome Robbins’ original choreography, comes to Bord Gáis Energy Theatre as part of a global tour. The production has played to sold-out houses all over the world, from London to Paris and Berlin, from Sydney to Tokyo. It was nominated for London’s renowned theatre prize, the Laurence Olivier Award, and awarded two Theatregoers’ Choice Awards in 2009.
