The orig­i­nal Two Tone band from Coven­try – mi­nus found­ing mem­ber Jerry Dam­mers – is still able to shake a leg and wear a sharp suit. And be­sides, what’s not to love about songs as good as Ghost Town and Too Much too Young? TOUR First Mu­sic Con­tact Tour 2014 For a measly ¤10, you can groove, grunt, kick out the jams (and other pre­serves), and say a cheery hello to Fight Like Apes, Kid Karate, and Sleep Thieves, as they head out on this year’s FMC na­tion­wide tour. THE­ATRE The Waste Ground Party Now, here’s an in­ter­est­ing de­vel­op­ment. The young writer Shaun Dunne is best known for his col­lab­o­ra­tions with Talk­ing Shop En­sem­ble, which have syn­the­sised doc­u­men­tary tech­niques with play­ful cre­ation. His first play for the Abbey sounds more con­ven­tional, though: a drama about in­ner-city teenage friends con­sid­er­ing leav­ing col­lege and unit­ing lo­cal kids in a soc­cer league. Pos­ing ques­tions about the bonds of com­mu­nity, it might also bring some of Dunne’s ad­ven­tur­ous spirit to new au­di­ences. FILM Ki­nop­o­lis: 9th Pol­ish Film Fes­ti­val @ IFI, Dublin Be­tween Novem­ber 6th and 9th Ki­nop­o­lis of­fers a pro­gramme of new Pol­ish film and an­i­ma­tion. High­lights in­clude The Word, a teenage bunny boiler, and Jack Strong, based on the life of Ryszard Kuk­lin­ski, a Pol­ish colonel who worked for the CIA dur­ing the Cold War. Doc­u­men­tar­ian Pawel Lozin­ski (above) will also be on hand to in­tro­duce a se­lec­tion of his works.
