Bas­tardo Elec­trico Cyprus Av­enue, Cork 10.30pm ¤15 sound­­had The long­est run­ning techno night in the land turns 12 and brings in Berlin wizard Rød­håd (above) to mark the oc­ca­sion. Rød­håd has cre­ated quite a buzz for him­self, from or­gan­is­ing his own bashes on the edges of the Ger­man cap­i­tal in the late 1990s to his cur­rent big­wig sta­tus via his Dystopian club and la­bel. Support tonight comes from Bas­tardo Elec­trico chief Jamie Be­han.


Amir Alexan­der Love & Death, Belfast 10pm £10/£8/£5 sound­ amir-alexan­der Straight out of Chicago, Amir Alexan­der has been hon­ing his own un­der­ground house sound since the late 1990s with re­leases for la­bels on both sides of the At­lantic. And his gritty, soul­ful, mod­ern house sound has re­ally taken flight on club dates world­wide. Support tonight is from Twitch and Robin CJ Smyth.


Call Su­per Sweeney’s Base­ment, Dublin 10.30pm Adm free sound­­su­per A great book­ing from the Gary’s Gang crew brings JR Seaton, the man be­hind one of 2014’s most fas­ci­nat­ing elec­tronic al­bums to town. Re­leased on the Hound­stooth la­bel, Suzi Ecto fizzes with brio and bliss, as the Berlin-based pro­ducer fi­nesses idio­syn­cratic elec­tronic tex­tures and su­perbly nu­anced pat­terns through­out. This is mu­sic for city streets as much as club floors. Support comes from Kenny Han­lon.

THE­ATRE Un­der­neath

Lime Tree The­atre. Opens Dec 5-6 8pm , lime­treethe­ A few years ago, the writer and per­former Pat Kinevane turned his tal­ents to solo per­for­mances with a com­pas­sion­ate and imag­i­na­tive play called For­got­ten. Fol­lowed by Silent, those two plays have brought him around the coun­try and then the world in Fisham­ble’s ac­claimed pro­duc­tions. Their third col­lab­o­ra­tion is the story of a dis­fig­ured woman with a sharp mind and salty hu­mour, born “on the brink of the world”. That’s Cobh, ac­tu­ally, but in Kinevane’s sly, surreal telling it be­comes a haunt­ing space be­tween life and death, in­hi­bi­tion and cre­ation.
