CHIL­DREN The Trag­i­cal Life of Cheese­boy

The Ark, Dublin 2pm & 4pm Some of the most imag­i­na­tive the­atre you’ll find dur­ing the DTF is in its fam­ily sea­son at the Ark. The fizzing mind of Fine­gan Kruck­er­meyer pre­vi­ously brought us The Girl Who For­got to Sing Badly, and now Aus­tralia’s Slingsby company pack his heroic story of an alien vis­i­tor to Earth­whose home planet has been re­duced to bub­bling fon­due. Dip in. PC PSYCH/POP Avi Buf­falo Whe­lan’s, Dublin 8pm ¤15 whe­lanslive.com Ah, Long Beach, Cal­i­for­nia! Ah, mu­si­cians called Avi Zah­n­erIsen­berg! A band named after its front­man and pri­mary song­writer, Avi Buf­falo’s most re­cent gui­tar/pop/psych al­bum, At Best Cuck­old, is best en­joyed with the sun on your back and a bev­er­age in your hands. If the for­mer can’t be man­aged in early Oc­to­ber, then the inside of Whe­lan’s will just have to do. Bev­er­age op­tional.

TCL JAZZ LOUIS STE­WART QUAR­TET JJ Smyths, Aungier St, Dublin 5pm ¤10 jjs­myths.com Leg­endary gui­tarist Louis Ste­wart (left) con­venes his cur­rent quar­tet – fea­tur­ing pi­anist Myles Dren­nan, bassist Neil O’Loghlen and drum­mer Shane O’Dono­van – on the first Sun­day af­ter­noon of ev­ery month up­stairs in JJ’s. Chances to hear clas­sic be-bop of this qual­ity are rare any­where in the world nowa­days. When all you have to do is wan­der down Aungier Street on a Sun­day af­ter­noon, well, it’s a gift from one of Ire­land’s na­tional trea­sures. Ar­rive early and nab a seat near the front. CL
