Are you a big fan of Game of Thrones? What about having Hodor playing the best house music at a themed party for you?

Nairn is in tour with The Rave of Thrones event and will be playing in the Tivoli Theatre on Saturday at a massive themed party.

“Rave Of Thrones should be a full-on party, with the magnificent Tivoli Theatre resplendent with Dothraki warriors, Whitewalkers, the Unsullied and, of course, Kahleesi’s fire breathing pets, not to mention visuals and a light show to rival a castle siege “, promised the organizers of the event.

You are a big a fan of Amy Winehouse and have not seen this amazing documentary about her life yet? Films of Note – Dublin Music Film Festival, hosted by The Sugar Club, will be screening “Amy” on Thursday night.

The award winning “AMY” tells the story of the life and death of this wonderful singer/songwriter who was one of the biggest talents of her generation. The documentary was directed by Asif Kapadia and produced by James Gay-Rees, George Pank, and Paul Bell.

In the venue you will also find  good food, drinks and a great atmosphere. The Sugar Club is one of my favourite venues in Dublin and it’s not just because it used to be The Irish Film Theatre, I love their intimate and charming auditorium and I feel like I am breathing art as soon as I walk in there.
