Workman’s extra long weekend
The workman’s Club in Dublin is extending the Bank Holiday spirit for another few days. The first Workman’s Club Block Party kicked off last night with the opening of the exhibition Misnomer, while tonight, tomorrow and Sunday will see various gigs, workshops and activities take place at the Wellington Quay venue.
Katie Kim and Last Days of 1984 provide the live entertainment tonight, with DJ Ed Smith playing tunes upstairs from 10pm. Tomorrow from 3-6pm, there is a market on the Terrace with food, clothes, books and music stalls, as well as photography, music software and art workshops (the latter with Don Conroy), a pop-up shop run by labels Richter Collective, Eleven Eleven, Popical Island and Quarter Inch Collective, and acoustic performances by Verse chorus verse and You Kiss By the Book throughout the afternoon. The live music continues that night with a gig from Alarmist, Overhead the Albatross and Kid Karate, while Maykay of Fight Like Apes will take over Djing duties. Sunday sees the Oxfam Vintage Shop set up in the venue, with free haircuts, a film screening of Cinema Paradiso and a Dress Dance from 11pm until late. Entry to all events is free.
