POP/ROCK Walk­ing on Cars Olympia Theatre, Dublin 8pm ¤25/¤22.50 Also Thurs, Gal­way With a trickle of EP re­leases over the past two years, and an ac­com­pa­ny­ing in­crease in pro­file and au­di­ence reach (as well as sign­ing with Uni­ver­sal), Din­gle’s Walk­ing on Cars might well be the next com­mer­cial suc­cess story out of Ire­land. This Dublin head­line date comes as no sur­prise to those of us keep­ing a close eye on the band. TCL TRAD North Strand Kon­tra Band The Grand So­cial, Dublin 8pm ¤12/¤10 five­lamp­ The Five Lamps Arts Fes­ti­val rises to a gal­lop with this long­time Dublin out­fit who mine the wide ex­panse of Bul­gar­ian and Ro­ma­nian tra­di­tional mu­sic to pop­u­late their reper­toire, with no small tinc­ture of their own orig­i­nal tunes tossed into the mix.

Live per­for­mance is what they’ve built their rep­u­ta­tion on: fast and fu­ri­ous high-oc­tane rhythms that cry out for a room­ful of elas­ti­cated joints – purely for swiv­el­ling pur­poses, of course. SL JAZZ Tom Rainey’s Ob­bli­gato Whe­lans, Dublin 8pm ¤15/¤12, im­pro­vised­mu­ Tom Rainey is the drum­mer the New York down­town lead­ers call when they need cre­ativ­ity and orig­i­nal­ity, but they also need it to groove like hell. Ob­bli­gato is the drum­mer’s own de­con­structed take on the Great Amer­i­can Song­book, in the com­pany of the sort of heavy­duty down­town tal­ent you don’t see ev­ery day on this side of the At­lantic: trum­peter Ralph Alessi, sax­o­phon­ist In­grid Laubrock, pi­anist Kris Davis and bassist Drew Gress. Sup­port from the CEO Ex­per­i­ment. CL JAZZ Sue Ryn­hart/Dan Bod­well Dolans (up­stairs), Lim­er­ick 8.30pm ¤10 Vo­cal­ist Sue Ryn­hart’s 2014 de­but al­bum, Cross­ings, was a blast of fresh air, plac­ing her quirky, unclichéd songs in the stark set­ting of Amer­i­can Dan Bod­well’s bass.

Ryn­hart is clas­si­cally trained but draws on ev­ery­thing from jazz to folk to ex­per­i­men­tal mu­sic, weav­ing a spell with Bod­well’s thought­ful counter lines and map­ping out hith­erto

un­charted ter­ri­tory. CL
