TO DANCE

Vitalic Live – At District 8

20776836_1529063677161115_2372491564917742757_o.jpg

Vitalic returns to Ireland with his brand new live show this Friday. The French programmer/multi-instrumentalist blends electro, techno, and house, as well as elements of classical, rock, Italo-disco, and ’70s electronic music, into a sound that recalls the work of fellow countrymen Daft Punk and Air, but has its own hard-edged playfulness.

Many of those tunes, like “Poney”, “La Rock 01”, “My Friend Dario” and “You Prefer Cocaine” went on to become club classics, blurring the boundaries between techno, disco, rock and pop, and profoundly inspiring and stimulating a scene that had been struggling since the end of the ‘French touch’ to find something a little more refreshing than filtered disco house.

Listen to some of Vitalic’s tunes here!

Run and get your tickets as they are likely to sell out!

20935048_10155646125550421_5422894930464111783_o

The Dublin Arabic Film Festival presents the best of contemporary Arabic cinema, providing unique perspectives on Arab people, culture and politics. This year’s diverse selection of films gives valuable insight into the beauty and complexity of these extraordinary countries.

The place of women in Arabic society emerged this year as a key theme with two films being directed by women: the opening night presentation Solitaire, a winning comedy of manners, and Beauty and the Dogs, a provocative work of great technical virtuosity. This occurence chimes with the IFI’s recent implementation of the F-Rating. Elsewhere in the programme Gaza Surf Club explores a new generation of young Palestinian surfers, while the zany comedy Ali, The Goat and Ibrahim provides some light relief.
