ANDREW WEATHERALL Craw­daddy, Dublin Fri 11.30pm 115 01-4763374 A rock­a­billy com­pi­la­tion? Sure why not? That Andrew Weatherall’s most re­cent re­lease was an on-point set of old-school rock­ers should sur­prise no-one. Do­ing what no one ex­pects him to do has served Weatherall well, be it in­vent­ing indie-dance, run­ning a string of sem­i­nal Lon­don club nights such as Sabresonic, throw­ing down some thrilling dun­geon elec­tron­ica as the Sabres of Par­adise, map­ping far-out techno with Keith Ten­nis­wood as Two Lone Swords­men or run­ning the Rot­ters’ Golf Club la­bel. A com­pi­la­tion such as

gath­er­ing to­gether Gene Vin­cent, Char­lie Feath­ers, Tav Falco’s Pan­ther Burns and The Cramps, was per­fectly in keep­ing with the DJ and pro­ducer’s mav­er­ick ethos.

But Weatherall’s eclec­tism is not just for show, and his mu­si­cal smarts are un­par­al­leled, as any­one who has ex­pe­ri­enced one of the DJ sets knows too well. Sup­port tonight is from Big Dish Go’s Gavin Feeney plus a live set from Ameri­chord. JIM CAR­ROLL Can’T see ThaT?
