Gigs to go to in Dublin this weekend

whats on this weekend

As usual Dublin town is bursting at the seams with great music this weekend. From outdoor amphitheaters, to famous barbershops; there is no excuse for not hearing something wonderful.


Let’s hope this weather holds out for Friday as the air around Wood Quay Amphitheater explodes with fantastic sounds.  Hosted by Happenings and curated by Nialler9, it’s part of the series of once-off events in unique space. Kicking off at 6:30, for only €5 you get to experience the wonderful Saint Sister, Stomptown Brass and I Have A Tribe.

Eric Martin

As part of his UK and Irish Tour, Eric Martin, The Voice of Mr Big, will play The Workmans Club on Friday night. With support from Grainne Duffy and Tommy Rockit, it is sure to be a special evening of music. It begins at 8pm, with tickets costing €20; available from ticketmaster and The Workmans Club.

Everybody’s favourite barbershop will as usual host the best talent around. This Saturday, Abner Brown’s will host Corner Boy. From 9pm, and completely free, you can delight your ears while relaxing with a few BYOB. Make sure to get down early for this one as space is limited.


The semi-final of War at the Button will take place in The Button Factory this Saturday. Thirteen bands will battle in out to secure a place in the final. For only a fiver, and all of this music; it is pretty epic value.
