If like me any of you are suffering a bit from those midweek blues then I might have something to cheer you up a bit ahead of the long weekend.

First up the ‘This is Dublin SKA festival is happening this Saturday and Sunday at Whelans with The Skalps and Seven Deadly Sins amongst those that will be playing.

If that’s not your cup of tea than you could head over to Temple Bar to the Dublin Dance Festival which goes from the 1st to the 19th of May.

If you’re feeling hungry and in the mood for a bit of R and B than you could head over to the ‘Jumpin & Brunchin’ Pop and R&B Brunch at NoLita (http://nolita.ie/) . Tickets are €15 euro including Brunch and a cocktail. Seatings are from 1:30 on Sunday the 5th of May.

If you’re looking for something to do on your Bank Holiday Monday than I might just have your thing especially if you’re a fan of theatre. The annual Dublin gay theatre Festival takes place from the 6th to the 19th of May. The festival celebrates the contribution of gay people to cinema over the years.
