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

And in Kelly’s this Wednesday there’s a special table quiz as a fundraiser for a documentary that’s in the pipeline about Pat Divilly Fitness and the amazing group of inspiring entrepreneurs who attend his classes. They’re taking part in the toughest race in the world, the Tough Mudder UK in 2 weeks time and we’ll be filming their journey!

The quiz promises to be a fun night with teams getting points for correct answers, but also for funny answers if the funny answer gets read out!

Entry is €10 per person with 4 people per table
Doors open at 8pm and quiz starts at 8.30pm
