SNOW PA­TROL Olympia The­atre, Dublin Wed 8pm 162.70/151.80 0818-719300 Yes, they might be on the re­ceiv­ing end of neg­a­tive crit­i­cism for veer­ing too close to a blunt edge. But at least Snow Pa­trol try to al­ter the course of their di­rec­tion by en­gag­ing in gigs such as this one (and with shows next week) by re­work­ing a se­lec­tion of their songs, as well as ma­te­rial writ­ten and recorded in pre­vi­ous in­car­na­tions (typ­i­cally, Rein­deer Sec­tion, Gary Light­body’s ex­per­i­men­tal en­sem­ble side project).

Ex­pect, then, a stage crammed with mu­si­cians, spe­cial guests, sur­prises, rein­ven­tions, re­work­ings, and the oc­ca­sional crack­ing pop/rock tune.

Snow Pa­trol also per­form next week at INEC, Kil­lar­ney, Co Kerry, Dec 4; The­atre Royal, Castle­bar, Co Mayo Dec 6; and Water­front Hall, Belfast, Dec 7. All shows are fully seated, and com­mence at 8pm sharp (no sup­port act).
