10 Days In Dublin is a brilliant, eclectic and cheap city festival with tonnes of stuff on over the past week, and still more to come this weekend. If you haven’t managed to catch anything yet, here are a few highlights over the coming days.

Workman’s Club
Friday, 8.30pm, €10
CODES haven’t played in Ireland in over a year, but now they’re back with their bombastic and loud live presence drawing primarily from their hugely ambitious debut album ‘Trees Dream In Algebra’, although I’m sure there will be a few new tunes in the mix as well.
Go if you like… black shirts, epic rock shows in small rooms.

Lovely Girl’s Guide to Lovely Living
Little Green
Friday, Saturday, 7pm, €8/€6
Come As Soon As You Hear have been one of the more interesting if sporadic pop-theatre companies fizzing around over the past few years and this latest production revolves around a lovely girl recruiting those willing (or unwilling) in a quest for spreading lovely girl etiquette.
Go if you like… randomers, positivity.

Between Two Rooms
Smock Alley Banquet Hall
Saturday, from 10am
NCAD students bring some fine prints to one of the nicest buildings in the city for art. Etching, collage and linocut techniques all feature from the artists Jo Kavanagh, Chloe Phipps, Sienna Mac Anna, Jilly McAteer and Amber Baruch.
Go if you like… Harry Clarke, some quiet time.

My Friend Has A Meltybrain?
Unitarian Church
Saturday, 8pm, €10
The fine experimental music of Meltybrains? takes over a church on St Stephen’s Green. Expect interesting prog, jilted tunes.
Go if you like… Dali, The Flaming Lips.

Little Green Gallery
Saturday, 10pm, €10
Oisin McKenna and Niamh Beirne continue to unapologetically tear up the spoken word escalator with events and art that is so contemporary you can almost feel the process unfurling in front of you. (DOI: I’m performing some spoken word at this event.)
Go if you like… thisispopbaby, house parties.
