BEATS Cari­bou Almost 15 years on, Canada’s Cari­bou (aka Dan Snaith, right) con­tin­ues to push spec­tral, spe­cial grooves – his lat­est al­bum, Our Love, in par­tic­u­lar, is tes­ta­ment to the man’s skills at mash­ing up beats, moods, and dis­tinc­tive pop hooks. Get to the venue early to catch fel­low Cana­dian spe­cial guest, Jessy Lanza, whose de­but al­bum, Pull my Hair Back, was short­listed for this year’s Po­laris Mu­sic Prize. THE­ATRE The Un­lucky Cabin Boy lime­treethe­ In 1835, a young man named Pa­trick O’Brien fi­nally caught a lucky break and es­caped his im­pov­er­ished Lim­er­ick to be­come a cabin boy on voy­ag­ing ship. Then it all went hor­rific. Cap­sized, starv­ing and adrift after a storm, O’Brien drew the short straw and was eaten by his crew. (Two more were con­sumed be­fore res­cue.) It sounds like an un­likely in­spi­ra­tion for a new mu­si­cal by Gúna Núa, Mike Finn and the Brad Pitt Light Orches­tra – but, then again, so does the plot of almost ev­ery mu­si­cal. De­li­cious or in­di­gestible, it opens as part of Lim­er­ick City of Cul­ture. ART Post Colony Artist Gareth Kennedy ex­plores the nat­u­ral, in­dus­trial and colo­nial his­to­ries of Kil­lar­ney Na­tional Park. The show in­cludes a film and pho­to­graphic doc­u­men­ta­tion of a 10-day green wood­work­ing and char­coal burn­ers en­camp­ment, led by woodright Eoin Don­nelly with forester Chris Hayes, dur­ing the sum­mer. The wood used was the wildly in­va­sive rhodo­den­dron x su­per­pon­ticum, orig­i­nally in­tro­duced in the 18th cen­tury, which park man­age­ment still strug­gles to con­trol.
