Things to do in Dublin: Hunter's Weekend Picks
After the hysteria of Monday night and Ireland's qualification for Euro 2016, it's been a long week and you could be forgiven for wanting to stay in this weekend but we'll be having none of that. Get up, get out and get down. Yeow! Music: Fatima & The Eglo Band at the Button Factory The Swedish/London-based singer is fast becoming a regular to to Dublin and tonight she's joined by her Eglo Records label boss Alexander Nut. Her debut album "Yellow Memories" which was was released last year to critical acclaim, saw her collaborate with the likes of Detroit house musician Theo Parrish, producer Scoop DeVille (Kendrick Lamar,Snoop Dogg), and Floating Points' own 16-piece orchestral ensemble.

Clarence breaks the news to her pimp and ends up killing him. He grabs a suitcase of cocaine on his way out thinking it is Alabama's clothing. The two hit the road for California hoping to sell the cocaine, but the mob is soon after them...and so you have the premise for one the greatest movies ever made. The End.
