The Art of the Song

There were pop stars before and there have been pop stars since, yet nobody has had the same enduring appeal as David Bowie. The king of chameleons was the first and best when it came to combining music, art and fashion to such deadly effect. Throughout the ups (a dodgy hydraulic cherry picker would leave him suspended over the audience during the Diamond Dogs tour) and downs (his acting), highs (most of the mid-70s passed in a chemical haze) and lows (well Low actually), Bowie has earned his Godlike Genius status. Almost 50 years on from his first album the NCH plays host to a talented array of Irish musicians - including Lisa Hannigan, Jape, Duke Special and Adrian Crowley - giving their take on Bowie’s peerless back catalogue. The band for the evening features members of Solar Bears, This Is How We Fly and I Am The Cosmos. / Brian Keane

Telephones

Oh hello. I just called to say I love you. Oh wait. No. I just called to say are you going to Telephone’s second daytime party? We all knew staying up partying all night would come full circle, and now we are going to stay up and party all day, son! I don’t know about you, but dancing in the summer breeze makes me feel high, and lazing on a sunny afternoon enjoying a wonderful brunch makes me forget all about why I ever waited till night to let my hair down. Capturing a festival vibe without the mud and tents, enjoy the hip-hop bake sale, hopscotch competitions, and array of spinning DJs that recreate Will Smith’s anthem Summertime so succinctly I might just scream for ice cream. First one to double dutch get’s a 99 cone that actually only costs 99 cent! Madness! / Ciara Roche

workshop

Butter Making Workshop

Life really is about the simple things. Dark chocolate and wine, cheese on crackers, cider drinkers' love of cider during Irish heat waves or that first glug of water when you're rudely awakened, post festival, with a mouth as dry as my sense of humour. And then there's my favourite Sunday staple - 'shrooms and Superquinn sausages cooked in and served on a slice of brown, lathered in salted creamery butter goodness. For those of you still of Flora faith, Farmette, neé Imen McDonnell is at hand at Summer Rising to separate the butterfat from the buttermilk. Grab yourself an armful of jam jars and roll up your churning sleeves... Feck the horse outside, who's taking the horse to France? / Connor Clarke

IMMA Summer Party

Following the explosive, discotheque-freakshow launch party WERK (curated by THISISPOPBABY), IMMA’s Summer Rising Festival has been going down a treat with Dublin art-goers, foodies, musos and party monsters alike. Celebrating the exhibition Propositions, a major retrospective of the work of Brazilian visual artist Hélio Oiticica, the festival draws to a close this Saturday with the IMMA Summer Party. Boasting a range of delights to tickle fancies, food will feature from Dublin faves 3FE, Luncheonette,  A Killer Sandwich and Cake Cafe in collaboration with artist Fink, plus cocktails from House in Cork Opera House. Tasty vibes to be served up by Southampton beatster Gang Colours and the beautiful Dublin-based Somerville, with DJ sets from Donal Dineen, David Kitt and others to boot. Bound to be a gorgeous, lazy-hazy, easy evening. Win Tickets / Jack Gibson

comedy

Milton Jones / Sara Pascoe

The British answer to Emo Phillips will be gracing the Iveagh Gardens with his much anticipated presence. Yup, that's Milton Jones, the cleanest line merchant in comedy, the garishly shirted owner of one of the most vacant gazes I've ever witnessed, a childlike demeanor concealing razor sharp pun-based wit, coupled with specific and baffling imagery which transports the audience on a haribo acid trip. He is sharing the bill with Sara Pascoe, whose comedic star has been on the rise ever since she stole the show in short-lived Channel 4 show, Campus (from the makers of Green Wing, as we were told over and over again). She is at the vanguard of a wave of funny chicas who don't need to harp on about their anatomy to make you laugh, and her conversational, cool style makes for a easy, free-laughing environment. Tickle yo funny bones, ladz. / Kate Coleman
