Here’s an event that first took place in 2003 as part of the Dublin Fringe Festival but will now return 15 years later to the city.

La Haine is a classic 1995 French film by Mathieu Kassovitz (one of my favourites for sure) about three immigrants clashing against society in the banlieues of Paris and on March 30th, the UK band Asian Dub Foundation will reprise their live soundtrack score of the film at an event in The Sugar Club.

Tickets will be available from the Sugar Club website, keep any eye on the Facebook page.

The film is well-known for its Edith Piaf turntablist scene among others.

A list of recommended events taking place over the next seven days in Dublin.

Yeasayer (somehow pictured) is the big gig for me this week. Some great lineups from Wednesday’s Haiti Fundraiser to the Young Hearts Run Free BYOB gig on Saturday to the NME Awards show on Sunday. Loreana is putting on an interesting night of Yacht Rock on Thursday while a few of gigs are happening I was completely unaware of this morning: Fake Blood, Boy 8-Bit and Crystal Fighters. Wretch-rock purveyors Xiu Xiu play on Saturday. Check out their horrible video below. Sample MP3s below too.
