TECHNO Ge­saf­fel­stein

Dis­trict 8, Dublin 11pm ¤8 sound­cloud.com/Ge­saf­fel­stein Last year’s Aleph from French pro­ducer Mike “Ge­saf­fel­stein” Levy was an al­bum of much won­der. The Lyon na­tive, best known for pro­vid­ing pro­duc­tion aid on Kanye West’s Yeezus, showed off his knack for nag­ging, in­fec­tious melodies from sheets of cold, in­dus­trial, min­i­mal, hor­ror­core techno. Support tonight from DeFekt, aka Dublin elec­tro and techno pro­ducer Matthew Flana­gan.

JAZZ

Hyp­notic Brass En­sem­ble The Sugar Club, Dublin 2-5pm ¤12/¤9/¤40 fam­ily sound­cloud. com/hyp­notic-brass-en­sem­ble, the­sug­ar­club.com Th­ese eight brass-blow­ing brothers from Chicago (right) started out busk­ing on the L. Now, with their Sun Ra meets Pub­lic En­emy sound, they’re con­quer­ing the world. Tick­ets are pretty thin on the ground for their night time shows (on Fri­day and Satur­day). How­ever, in a thor­oughly en­light­ened move by hip­ster pro­mot­ers Choice Cuts, HBE will also give spe­cial mati­nee per­for­mance with a Q&A aimed at fam­i­lies.

OPERA

La Travi­ata

Bord Gáis En­ergy The­atre

It has been 23 years since the last Ir­ish visit of world-renowned opera company Glyn­de­bourne. They now come to Bord Gáis En­ergy The­atre, Dublin’s de facto opera house, with Verdi’s tale of a beau­ti­ful cour­te­san whose past catches up with her. Verdi adapted his opera from a play, it­self adapted from a novel, and La Travi­ata has been var­i­ously rein­ter­preted for film: it’s the story of a fallen woman who keeps on fall­ing. It’s an old, pun­ish­ing story, yet in Verdi pas­sion runs high, the light burn­ing bright­est be­fore it is ex­tin­guished.
