Uni­tar­ian Church, Dublin 7.30pm ¤20 tick­et­mas­ This ex­cel­lent Ir­ish band have been hard at work over the past few years, and they’re now at the point where new ma­te­rial from their forth­com­ing al­bum is stamp­ing its feet im­pa­tiently in the wings. 2015 is theirs for the tak­ing – just you wait and see. And do we need to ref­er­ence the venue’s spe­cial at­mos­phere once again?

JAZZMetá Metá

But­ton Fac­tory, Tem­ple Bar, Dublin 7pm ¤15/¤12 sound­ ofi­cial, im­pro­vised­mu­ Brazil­ian mu­sic is a vast and tur­bu­lent ocean rarely tra­versed by An­glo­phones. Then again, the su­perb Metá Metá (above) hail from São Paolo, which alone has a pop­u­la­tion of more than 12 mil­lion, so they don’t ex­actly need to tour in search of an au­di­ence. Psy­che­delic samba, Afrobeat, punk rock and free jazz all res­onate in the mu­sic of three of São Paolo’s most in­no­va­tive mu­si­cians, un­der­pinned by the folk­loric tra­di­tion of the Afro-Brazil­ian re­li­gion Can­domblé.
