Summer in the city
If you’re not bound for some musical delights in Kildare this weekend, and perhaps feeling a mite bitter about it, be appeased by the news that Temple Bar is offering up its own mini festival in its stead. Summer Sensational kicked off yesterday, as you can see by my report on it here. But in case you haven’t just clicked on that link, there are oodles of freebies available including tonight’s screening of eighties classic Dirty Dancing. For inimitable lines such as “I carried a watermelon” and “nobody puts Baby in the corner” bellowed from a big screen all across Dublin 2, Meeting House square is the venue tonight. You can even go see singer Julie Feeney perform first, and then stay for the film. And all for free! Who needs Oxegen after all?
