The MART Academy

While MART as a collective has been about since 2006, their physical presence in Dublin is still relatively new. With their first studios in the old fire station only opening, last year, their empire has quickly grown, encompassing 3 different buildings, a multitude of studios, exhibition spaces, a market, cafe and performance venue and now MARTcademy, a one stop shop for budding, developing and established artists. Covering a wide range of artistic and creative disciplines, there’s everything from an intro to turkish art to singing for the terrified. And they’re such sweeties, they even promise tea and cake for participants (let’s be honest, that’s what we all want!)So try something new this autumn, and head towards Rathmines for a little MARTucation! / Beccy Fitzpatrick

Real Estate

Real Estate's music conjures up two distinct images in my head. Purveyors of preppy geekiness, I visualize the New Jersey 5-piece band’s recording studio perpetually shrouded in a cloud of weed fumes. They talk slowly and play slower, their dreaming minds unfurling and teasing ideas into cohesive four-minute songs that glide and hover in a constant state of chiming-guitar loveliness. The second image is a side effect of the first, and captures the aching nostalgia of a distant past, albeit one plucked straight out of a John Hughes coming-of-age movie: carefree bike rides around idyllic suburbia, leafy green manicured lawns, an unrequited crush, and the simultaneous comfort and loneliness of friendship. Theirs are songs that carry the listener on a journey, a trip even. Let’s hope they bring the dry ice. Win Tickets / Brian Keane

Banter: Has Dublin Lost its Creative Edge?

I love hearing the cries about strawberry bargains on Capel St. I love walking around Blessington Street basin, up the mountains and along the smelly beaches in Fairview and Sandymount. I love trying weird vegetable/fruit juices from the Polish food stores. I love being around South Circular at prayer time and feeling like an ethnic minority. I love going to a slanty-floored rave above a Chinese restaurant. I feel inspired by the noticeable increase in open gay couples sharing a kiss on the streets or when my friends continue to create and expose new ideas and experiences in Dublin. Creation is a product of inspiration. Dublin is full of inspired souls young and old, still creating because their city is rich with old and emerging culture. If you can't see the creative edge, your focus must be camped out in the departures lounge of Terminal One. / Jordan Ralph

A Clockwork Orange

This Stanley Kubrick offering was banned in Ireland for over 20 years and when I finally got to see it on the big screen I had to wonder what was going through the censor's mind. Yes, Malcom McDowell’s Alex and his “droogs” are hedonistic hoodlums prone to outbursts of random violence but they also drink a lot of milk which is surely sending a healthy message. A true cult classic this is an exploration of violence at its most primal level. When Alex’s behaviour is modified so that it is acceptable to society it is almost as if he has lost a limb. With a soaring soundtrack, sinister visuals and an iconic performance from McDowell that spawned an always popular Halloween look, this futuristic fantasy is still powerful and unnerving even if some parts look slightly dated now. / Frances Winston

Friday The 13th Part II

The body count continues with this stalk and slash favourite from the early '80s which is the latest offering by the Jameson Cult Film Club. Having hosted previous installments of the Club in the Mansion House and Tivoli, they're locating Camp Crystal Lake in a different part of town. For those unfamiliar with the concept, these screenings come with the twist of immersion. Characters mingle within set creations from the original film and the assembled feel the blur between what's on screen and what's surrounding them. Expect the rustic Packanack Lodge to be there and Jason Voorhees may also be lurking in the shadows looking for his next victim both on screen and off. Win Tickets / Zach Joyce
