The MART Academy

While MART as a collective has been about since 2006, their physical presence in Dublin is still relatively new. With their first studios in the old fire station only opening, last year, their empire has quickly grown, encompassing 3 different buildings, a multitude of studios, exhibition spaces, a market, cafe and performance venue and now MARTcademy, a one stop shop for budding, developing and established artists. Covering a wide range of artistic and creative disciplines, there’s everything from an intro to turkish art to singing for the terrified. And they’re such sweeties, they even promise tea and cake for participants (let’s be honest, that’s what we all want!)So try something new this autumn, and head towards Rathmines for a little MARTucation! / Beccy Fitzpatrick

Lee Fields and the Expressions

There's something about Lee Fields that really inspires the people of Ireland to venture out into the wind and rain and get their groove on. It's probably because he's exactly what the show bands should have been, a croontastic, r'n'b overlord, who could probably sing the phonebook with seductive success. Deep funk and soul reverberate through his sets, and with swell swagger he commands his stage, and even more so, his audiences. He's a Choice Cuts regular for a reason along with his soul brother Charles Bradley, so if you trust in the music, and do what it says, you should check this out. Warm up by putting Ladies from his My World LP on repeat. It's too saucy. Ooooerrrr. / Kate Coleman

Chilli con Carnivale

If you read a lot of food writing, you'll know that Chili con Carne is a divisive dish. Every home cook declares to have the quintessential headblowing recipe, each region in the US has its own little recipe quirks, and the only thing you can quite definitely state is that there's no need for tinned tomatoes - that's just a preference of your saucy self. Some recipes demand cacao, Tex-Mex versions ask for cumin, and various cheeses, molasses and vinegars appear on recipe pages. They are an invention of environment and taste, so bowls and spoons at the ready, cos it's Chilli con Carnivale. Pick your favourites from a bunch of fearless seasoned chili-afiocionados in support of Fighting Words, who do stellar work in the field of literacy. Just remember, if you burn your mouth, chew dry bread, cos the water doesn't work. / Kate Coleman

talk

Blood on the Streets

Here's something to get your blood boiling...the legend of Sweeney Todd was about as loyal to its historical context as Neil Jordan's Michael Collins. Barbers weren't just barbers, back in'day, but also your first go-to if you were feeling a little under the weather. Blood letting was considered a quick-fix for ailments, whether it was done by leeches or controlled incisions by a barber. Barbers, possibly in a multi-century-spanning hangover from the Barber-surgeons of the middle ages, always remained local experts on anatomy and such, and even if Sweeney Todd was pure fantasy, never forget that barbers were the most suspected in the Jack the Ripper murders because of their medical knowledge...So check out this talk, and remember, it wasn't always primping and preening... / Kate Coleman

pop-up

Alright Pumpkin

Alright Pumpkin? You should be, cos Meath-based pumpkinteers, Alright Pumpkin, are opening a Dublin pop-up patch where kids and adults can delight in picking their own pumpkin. Halloween is the season to get crafty with jack o'lanterns and the great news is that each pumpkin is also as tasty as it is good looking. All different sizes and colours will be available to test your decisiveness. Above all they promise that regardless of size, from the sublimely small to the monstrously massive, each pumpkin was grown with love and care just an hour outside our fair city. Visit the patch on Saturday the 25th in South Studios from 12 until 5 but when they are gone, they are gone; at least until Thursday the 30th when they return for a repeat show just before the big day. / Jack O'Lantern

Truth or Dare

Truth or Dare is a film made more frightening by its context. In a world where children commit crimes at the alleged behest of internet memes, and people set each other on fire and then put it on YouTube, you can't help but feel unnerved by the premise. A group of students are web celebs for their gory gameshow style videos, and it's all fake, until a superfan decides that it's in need of some hyper-realism. What ensues is a frightfest that will keep you up for weeks. Throw away your webcams... Win Tickets / Rebekah Keane
