What not to miss this week
Getting Ziggy with it
Dublin Bowie Festival
The cancellation of Tony Visconti's Holy Holy project was a blow - but even without The Thin White Duke's long-time producer, the third Dublin Bowie Fest has lots to recommend, with ace Bowie covers band Rebel Rebel playing Vicar Street tomorrow, while tonight, I *heart* Bowie , a local collective of Bowie fans, perform at Whelan's.
Running until Wednesday; see dublinbowiefestival.ie
The post-Christmas Carole:
Beautiful: The Carole King Musical
The acclaimed Broadway chronicling of the music and tumultuous life of Carole King comes to Ireland. The drama of King's rise and fall is compellingly retold by Douglas McGrath, while jukebox hits include '(You Make Me Feel) Like a Natural Woman' and 'Take Good Care of My Baby'.
From Tuesday, BGE Theatre, Dublin
The fruit and nothing but the fruit
James and the Giant Peach
Dublin's new art-deco Stella Cinema - in a previous life a sticky-floored, old school movie house - begins its post-Christmas season of family screenings with Mary Poppins (tomorrow) and Henry Selick's 1996 stop motion adaptation of James and the Giant Peach (Sunday).
10am, Stella Cinema, Rathmines
What is it about podcasts and true-crime? The latest potential blockbuster for your earbuds recounts the notorious Atlanta child murders of the late Seventies - a killing spree that will also be explored in season two of David Fincher's Mindhunter.
The TV show
The 75th Annual Golden Globe Awards

The End of the F***ing World
"I'm James, I'm 17 and I'm pretty sure I'm a psychopath." This new Netflix teen dramedy is a jolly romp about a British adolescent who fantasises about murder. Questions of taste aside, can the show succeed on its own terms?
