Lady Gaga 3Arena, Dublin 8pm ¤39.05 3Arena.ie Lady Gaga brings her artRAVE, The ARTPOP Ball tour to Dublin. It’s the big­gest gig of the week but comes at a point where Gaga’s out­put is now at its most scru­ti­nised. It isn’t that she’s com­mer­cially weak (she’s one of the best­selling mu­sic artists of re­cent times), it’s more that her 2013 al­bum, Artpop, failed to en­gage as bril­liantly as pre­vi­ous records. Chancer or avant-garde pop star ex­traor­di­naire? We’re mak­ing a strong case for the for­mer. TCL

Ger­man fan­tasy writer and il­lus­tra­tor Paul Scheer­bart (1863-1915) was also in­volved in sci­ence and ar­chi­tec­ture, and at the end of the 19th cen­tury, tried to make a per­pet­ual mo­tion ma­chine. Martin Healey’s new film work refers to his pub­lished ac­count of his at­tempts. A lone pro­tag­o­nist wan­der­ing through a tidal land­scape muses on utopian at­tempts to har­ness the phys­i­cal world, and the fraught re­la­tion­ship be­tween sci­en­tific the­ory and aes­thet­ics.

The Dock, Car­rick-on-Shan­non, Co Leitrim 8.30pm the dock.ie Multi­na­tional, mul­ti­cul­tural, multi-in­stru­men­tal and mul­ti­tal­ented – Phisqa (it means “five” in Quen­cha) stir the grand melt­ing pot of 21st-cen­tury mu­sic with a big cre­ative spoon. This Dublin-based col­lec­tive of ex-pats and na­tives (led by Peru­vian per­cus­sion­ist Cote Cal­met and in­clud­ing US sax­o­phon­ist Tom Cara­her, Venezue­lan pi­anist Leopoldo Oslo, Ir­ish bassist Cormac O’Brien and Ital­ian gui­tarist Julien Co­larossi) brew a heady broth of jazz flavoured with South Amer­i­can folk mu­sic and much more be­sides.
