We've teamed up with Dublin Gazette to bring you the best events on in the city this weekend.
Bring Your Own Vinyl
This Sunday, October 21st, MVP on Upper Clanbrassil Street are set to host an exciting ‘Bring Your Own Vinyl’ event.
After a great first event last month hosted by Dublin Record Club, the decks in the popular haunt will be wide open for patrons to bring along the best of their vinyl collection to play to the masses.
You can sign up for a slot on the day – no experience needed – and get the tunes flowing, all on wax, with the team also on hand to help walk you through the process.
The event will run from 5pm until late, giving you a chance take in any and every kind of genre; what’s played will be a surprise!

Drag Evening In Aid Of The Irish Cancer Society
Pot Bellied Pig in Rathmines, partnering up with their neighbours Tiger Pizza, will host an ever-so-fabulous drag evening this Saturday, October 20th.
The night is in aid of the Irish Cancer Society, and is billed as a ‘pink, prosecco and pizza’ extravaganza that hopes to raise much needed funds for the cause.
The marvellous Ms Taken will host the event with her two ‘Gorge Gals’, which will kick off at eight and run until late.
Tickets for the drag evening are priced at €35, and include a glass of prosecco or beer on arrival, pizza and sides to share, Pot Bellied Pig’s signature brownie bites and of course, an all-glam after-hours drag show.

Halloween At Glasnevin
Halloween is coming early to Glasnevin, as this Sunday will celebrate the emergence of the spooky season at the Botanic Gardens!
There will be a bumper series of events and activities to celebrate the coming of Halloween, with all participants encouraged to “dress to distress”!
Guest on the day can see the Halloween harvest display and the decorated pumpkin exhibition. Ghouls and boys can also visit the witches in their garden to learn all about their magical plants.
You can also try your hand at some of the maths games that will be run by Maths Week Ireland as part of their Celebration of Mind. There will be puzzles, maze and maths tricks, magicians, mathematicians and puzzlers.
For the adults, there’s also an extra spooky tour running in the Botanic Gardens on October 20th and 27th, encouraging us to explore the darker side of the Botanics, at €5 per person on a first-come first- served basis.

Call Me By Monét
One of the finalists of Season 10 of RuPaul’s Drag Race will take to the Liberty Hall stage on Saturday night.
Monét X Change, one of the fan favourites from the last season of the cult show and winner of the coveted Ms Congeniality title, is bringing her Call Me By Monet one-woman show to Eden Quay.
The show will be jam packed with comedy, lip syncing galore and a number of ‘fake split’ performances that the queen is known for.
The show contains adult humour, but anyone over the age of 14+ is welcomed with an adult.
Tickets are available now here.
