Join Me in the Pines Triskel Christchurch Cork 8pm triske­larts­cen­ Also Thurs, Dublin On the rare oc­ca­sions when BellX1 aren’t busy, band mem­ber Dave Ger­aghty (above) fills in time with var­i­ous side projects, the lat­est of which is the very fine Join me in the Pines. See al­bum re­view, p12.

Tony Clayton-Lea TECHNO DSNT Lime­light 1 Belfast 9pm Belfast techno night DSNT turns three and they’ve a help­ing of spe­cial sauce to mark the oc­ca­sion in the shape of Karenn. A col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween DJs and pro­duc­ers Blawan and Pariah, Karenn have been get­ting the thumbs up all round for their fierce live show. Support comes from Dublin pro­ducer Sunin Sharpe.

Car­roll TRAD Mozaik Dolan’s Ware­house, Lim­er­ick 8.30pm Also Sat, Gal­way; Sun, Sligo Andy Irvine re­unites with his four com­padres in Mozaik for a brief skip across the coun­try. Bul­gar­ian rhythms that’d frac­ture the hippest of pelvises, er­rant melody lines that take you to places unimag­in­able and a raft of rare and won­der­ful in­stru­ments (duduk any­one?).

Siob­hán Long CLUBS Left­field Savoy Cork 10.30pm savoy­ When it came to spec­tac­u­lar dance arena shows, few could ri­val Left­field. Cer­tainly, as any­one who saw them at the old Point back in the day can tell you, they were the go-to men for max­i­mum bass wob­bles. Th­ese days, it’s Neil Barnes who flies the Left­field flag. Ex­pect some deadly big-room elec­tronic fare with a cou­ple of twists in the tail.


Sage Fran­cis Fifth On Teel­ing Sligo 8pm Also Voodoo Belfast Satur­day, Sugar Club Dublin Sage Fran­cis was one of the first of the in­de­pen­dent hip-hop species, a rap­per who moved from the MC bat­tle scene via an early Naugh­ties’ in­ter­net buzz to get­ting his views and tracks across to the masses. Cur­rent al­bum Cop­per Gone, which he’s tour­ing here this month, is his first in four years. JC ART Pater Gallo Peter Gallo (Gallery 1) Dou­glas Hyde Gallery, Trin­ity Col­lege Ver­mont based painter Peter Gallo is one of a num­ber of con­tem­po­rary artists who opt for a per­sonal, low-tech, im­pro­vi­sa­tional aes­thetic linked to an ethic of com­mu­nity ac­tivism. There’s a cal­cu­lated in­for­mal­ity to his work and it can seem as if he throws what­ever is to hand into a paint­ing – tooth­picks, scraps of photographs, string. He’s not afraid to make paint­ings that are quite beau­ti­ful in an ob­vi­ous way.

Ai­dan Dunne THE­ATRE Pen­te­cost

Lyric The­atre, Belfast 7.30pm Who lives in a house like this, some­where be­tween a refuge and a flash point, “elo­quent with this his­tory of this city”, as the Catholic Mar­ion puts it? Still in­hab­ited by its de­ceased owner, though, the proud loy­al­ist Lily Matthews, it re­mains a po­tent set­ting for Ste­wart Parker’s fi­nal, ex­tra­or­di­nary play, set against the Ul­ster Work­ers Coun­cil strike, where four di­vided friends scour the se­crets of their past and cau­tiously be­gin to hope for a fu­ture.
