A Wine Goose Chase

This is another event included in the Galway Food Festival. It is programmed for 3pm on Sat. 19th & Sun 20th in Busker Brownes Bar

Entry is €15

‘A Wine Goose Chase’ is a one woman theatrical performance & interactive wine tasting with storytelling.

Wine and theatre combine to tell the fascinating story of Ireland’s winemakers.
Susan Boyle loves wine. What’s more she knows what she’s drinking and talking about. She’s got 2,000 years of Irish wine history to back her up! So, sit back, let her fill your glass while she takes you on a trip with the tenacious Irish people who transformed the wine world and didn’t let coming from a grape-free land stop them.

This hour-long one woman theatrical performance fuses interactive wine tasting with storytelling in a warm, inviting setting. Audience members will have the opportunity to put their senses to use and hopefully leave with a new insight to a drink that has been part of Ireland’s history for much longer than we might think.

Guinness Live At The Latin Quarter

A small festival sponsored by the big company brings us some good DJs and bands this weekend.

All the big names will be place in Buskers Browne’s, The King’s Head and The Quays. But all the pubs in the area are offering something special.

For us, the best option is the concert on Saturday (September 28th) in Buskers Browne’s of the Wexford artist Wallis Bird. From 8 pm.

This is the program of the festival, as you can see it offers the opportunity to enjoy a Kila‘s concert, the music of Ocean Colour Scene and/or The Stone Roses:

In the pubs this week

2 concerts and one quiz to break the monotony of the week in three big pubs of Galway:

Tonight, Monday, 12th, in The Roisin Dubh:

Midlake stays ahead of its own time by making music that transcends it. The Denton, Texas band’s 2006 release The Trails of Van Occupanther got fans and bloggers re-evalutating dormant ancestors like Fleetwood Mac, America, Crosby Stills Nash and Young and Bread – music that has been embedded in the indie worlds unconscious (Bon Iver, Fleet Foxes, Grizzly Bear) ever since. On their 2010 release The Courage of Others, Midlake reinvented themselves with influences from British folk to Russian Cinema – and received rave reviews culminating in the band being named Best Live Act by Mojo Magazine. With Midlake’s fourth LP to be released later in 2013, the band bring their songs of the past, present and future.

Tickets are 24 euros
