If you haven't yet adorned your ears with any of Erica Cody's tunes thus far in your life, please excuse yourself for that indiscretion by going ahead and clicking over to Spotify, having a listen (and a bop), and only then may you return to this article for the already Erica enlightened. 

Big news for fans of the the Dublin alt-RnB singer – Erica is playing a gig in the Grand Social next month, on the eve of the launch of next EP Leoness, April 11th.

In the last two years, Erica has been a regular on the Irish festival circuit, appearing at Electric Picnic, Castlepalooza and Longitude to crowds of fervent supporters who clamoured to the stage for an audible glimpse of her particular brand of empowering choonage. 

Her distinctive sound plays on influences from 90s Hip-Hop icons blended with contemporary lyrics that address love, infatuation and female authority – perfect for the pre-drinks playlist or to employ a sense of self-confidence of all who listen (and inevitably end up singing along – that sh*t's catchy). 

In the summer of 2018, Erica played the main stage at Electric Picnic with The Story of Hip Hop, collaborating with The RTE Orchestra, DJ Mo-K, Jess Kavanagh, Jafaris and Mango to a 13,000-capacity stage.

When she's not busy performing, she can be found modelling, acting and collaborating with massive brands like Nike and Samsung (casual). However, she's not one to fall into your typical 'influencer' category. 

While she showcases her style and promotes her music on Instagram, she also uses her platforms to draw attention to societal issues like toxic masculinity and to elevate other female artists – promoting inclusively and creativity among her audience.   

Our advice? Get your tickets ASAP, so you can gloat to your friends that you got to see Erica Cody just before she became one of Ireland's best-selling Irish singer songwriters. Don't sleep on it.

We've finally found the perfect outdoor cinema trend that is DESPERATELY needed on Irish land: Hot tub theatres.

Some absolute genius had the idea to combine hot tubs and watching movies, and we owe them so much for that wonderful conception. God bless them.

Organisers Tub Life have created an event where Londoners can test out the Hot Tub Cinema for real this August, but Dublin is normally about 20 years behind the England capital.

The cinema event of the century is scheduled to take place on August 31 from 6pm to 9pm, and we're contemplating booking our flights now, before Brexit goes and ruins everything for us.

Film fanatics will be able to strip and dip into relaxing hot water while enjoying whatever classic is playing on the big screen, with a cheeky bevvy. No skippy dipping allowed, sorry to disappoint you.

Tub Life wrote on the event page on Facebook: "Tub Life is coming to London and we’re bringing our hot tubs with us! Expect performers, hosts, BBQs, round-the-clock tub service and the biggest portable screen in the UK."

"Note: the scheduled date is preliminary as we’re currently finalising the few remaining details to this event. Click ‘Interested’ to be notified with more information," they concluded.

They'll confirm the exact location for London at a later date, and will also be visiting Maidstone, Liverpool, Chester, Brimingham, Manchester, Leeds, Bristol and Newcastle.

Who knows, they might even pop up in Dublin this summer if the demand is high enough, which it totally will be. Start the petition today lads, shall we?

Cyber-bullying can have a devastating impact on mental health, especially when it comes to young people.

Nowadays, children are exposed to the internet at a much younger age, making technology an integral part of their life.

Tabú, an Irish documentary series, aims to explore the negative effects of the online world in their latest episode.

In its episode this week, the TG4 series will discuss ‘online shaming’ and how it has changed people’s lives across the country.

Náire online influencer, blogger and presenter Ciara Ní É explores the sensitive and traumatic stories of those who have been victims of online abuse and extortion and how it has affected them.

Broadcaster Stefanie Preissner and presenter Ciara Ní É

She will interview several victims of cyber-bulling including:

A limited number of exclusive VIP packages will be available. These exclusive offers can include an amazing selection of reserved-seated tickets, custom merchandise (designed exclusively for package purchasers) and much more.

Hugh Jackman has made an impression on audiences of all ages with his multi-hyphenate career persona, as successful on stage in front of live crowds as he is on film. From his award-winning turn on Broadway as the 1970s singer/songwriter Peter Allen to his metal claw-wielding Wolverine in the blockbuster X-Men franchise, Jackman has proven to be one of the most versatile actors of our time.

Jackman garnered his first Academy Award nomination, for Best Actor, for his performance in Tom Hooper’s Les Misérables, based on the popular stage show created from Victor Hugo’s famous novel of the same name.

Jackman’s standout performance as protagonist Jean Valjean also earned him a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in a Comedy/Musical, as well as Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Award nominations, for both Best Ensemble and Best Male Actor in a Leading Role, and a BAFTA Award nomination. Most recently, he was nominated for his role as P.T. Barnum in The Greatest Showman.
