3Arena, Dublin 8pm ¤46.55/¤36 3Arena.ie Also Tues, Belfast We agree that this Leicester band aren’t to everyone’s tastes, and we also think that they owe far too many slavish favours to the likes of Happy Mondays, but, you know, someone out there loves them. This Seven Days panel is for you, then.
AMERICANA Mark Olson

THEATRE Beautiful Dreamers
Meet at 69 O’Connell Street. 6pm/7.30pm/9pm ¤12-15 beautiful-dreamers.com Anu Productions and the Performance Corporation tend to take different routes towards their site-specific theatre. Anu, the company behind the Monto Cycle, make stories out of a place’s history; the Performance Corporation, who made Dr Ledbetter’s Experiment and Power Point, often take their theatrical work to unusual locations. They meet in the middle for the ambitious co-production Beautiful Dreamers, a story of the city seen from high above, and performed - in a way - by everyone who lives there.
