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


In Busker Brownes, today, Monday The Black Magic Big Band,  an 18 piece band playing the music made famous by the Dorsey, Basie, Herman, and Ellington bands through to funk and fusion of the modern era.

They start at about 10 pm every Monday. And it is a free gig


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

Two interesting quizzes this week in the pubs. Because everything can be done inside the pub in Galway, even earning some money and showing off what a wise person you are.


The monthly Cottage Quiz, in the Cottage Bar Salthill.

It’s not an easy one, so start reading all the newspapers, all the blogs all the news in the tv. It is tomorrow, Wednesday, from 8 pm. To book a table call 091583723.

This Quiz is always the first Wednesday of the month, so, if it is fully booked for May, remember it will be back the 5th of June.

And Monks vs Punks, in Kelly’s, a charity event for the Irish Cancer Society.

This Thursday, 2nd of May, from 7 30. Tablequiz will be taking place first and then a few hairy men will be taken to the stage to get their chest or legs waxed and some people will be shaving their head.

No money but prizes  to be won in this case, tickets are €20 per team of 4.
