    I’m in Dublin at the end of the month for two site-date-etc-specific GOTH KARAOKE events for the Bram Stoker Festival. The first is at the ShapeShifters’ Ball at Irish Museum of Modern Art on Saturday 25th, and the second is an open air thing at Temple Bar on Sunday 26th. Expect sincere tinny versions of The Cure, Sisters of Mercy, Nick Cave etc.
