TRA­DI­TIONAL Kevin Con­neff and Red­mond O’Toole De­cem­ber 21st is a date to be reck­oned with each year in Meath, and this con­cert is a timely cel­e­bra­tion of the an­nual sol­stice, as The Chief­tains’ Kevin Con­neff brings bodhrán and voice to the party, along with gui­tarist O’Toole. The in­ti­mate 60-seater set­ting should serve this duo well for this once-off per­for­mance. HIP-HOP Run the Jew­els No sur­prise that this muchan­tic­i­pated Ir­ish de­but for Run the Jew­els is sold out. In fact, ei­ther Killer Mike or El-P (above) could prob­a­bly fill the room un­der their own steam, such is their rep­u­ta­tion. But when you com­bine the duo, add in two fan­tas­tic al­bums and throw in a full house a few nights be­fore Christ­mas, you’ve the mak­ings of a sweaty, loud, un­miss­able night out. Support from Clare di­a­mond geezers God­knows and My­nameisjohn. All across the coun­try, at around 2pm to­day, it will slowly dawn on most men that Christ­mas shop­ping can­not be avoided any longer, and that sneaky pint in town will stick in your craw un­less you at least get the folks some­thing. And your fella/girl. And the brother. Christ­mas mar­kets are all well and good, but vouch­ers are bet­ter. Think mu­sic and clothes for teens, and nice ho­tels for the folks. You’ve got an hour. Run, run as fast as you can.
