Five amazing this to do in Dublin this weekend! 

1) Style Soko Pop-Up, Saturday 2pm - 5pm @ Nolita 

The pants I'm wearing in the pic are from Style Soko, a brand-new Irish streetwear brand inspired by South Korean streetwear. V gorge. So I'm v excited to see their offering for the first time, in real-life, this Saturday! "Stylesoko is Ireland's latest clothing brand- South Korean streetwear inspired clothing for natural beauties. We usually purely sell online - stylesoko.com - but we are hosting a End up Summer, Pop up Event. It will include special discounts and sales across our whole range which will only be available on the day! There will be good tunes, a signature Stylesoko cocktail and competitions on the day to win freebies." More info: https://stylesoko.com/

2) Shooting Stars Over Dublin, Saturday 11pm - 4am 

"One of the most stunning events in the stargazer's calendar is the annual Perseid meteor shower! A meteor shower’s activity is expressed by its zenithal hourly rate or ZHR. At its peak on August 12-13, the Perseid shower will have a ZHR of 80-100 meteors-per- hour. This year, the Perseid meteor shower is set to peak on the night of Saturday, August 12 , although you'll still get excellent visibility on the nights of the 11th and 13th. Look for a great place in the park and enjoy the heavenly spectacle over Dublin."

3) Legsit, Saturday @ Jigsaw 

Like punk? Get yo punk ass down to this then. Performances from: EXTRAVISION feat.Legs, SURGE, HATEFILLED KIDS (uk), LOVE SCUM feat. Legs (first & only show!), ETERNAL MINORITIES. More info: https://www.facebook.com/events/1244591028986472

4) Gumcollective, Friday @ Temple Bar Studios  

"Think Kanye West when he realesed the video for 'Famous,' think Kim Kardashian in general, think Robert Downey Junior when he bounced back form the depths for the second time and filmed Iron Man 3 (kiss kiss, bang bang). Think Carrols gift shop where you can indulge yourself in a sea of represenations in various media of our beloved and hackneyed leprachaun. And as you stand outside Carrols, look up, and see us looking down from across the road, upstairs from Temple Bar Gallery in Studio 6, laughing in the glory that is out sellout event (note: not sell out event), highfiving each other and saying 'thats hot'. Think The Simple Life, Season 3 Episode 4, but don't think too much, they didn't, but we did. xo" More info: https://www.facebook.com/events/1883866008599001


5) Dublin Comic Con, Friday - Sunday @ The Convention Centre
