MOVIE & MU­SIC O Brother, Where Art Thou?/ Cujo Fam­ily/Mick Pyro A cute idea, this: a clas­sic con­tem­po­rary movie whose sound­track is ren­di­tioned by live mu­sic. With ar­cane, clas­sic US roots/blue­grass on the OST menu, who bet­ter than The Cujo Fam­ily and for­mer Repub­lic of Loose front­man Mick Pyro to add a touch of fizz to that pro­ceed­ings? And what’s this? Free pop­corn? Ah, c’mon! ELEC­TRON­ICA Slow Magic Who’s the man be­hind the furry fox mask? Over the past few years, the enig­matic Slow Magic has gath­ered quite a tribe to his side on the back of slinky, dark, cos­mic elec­tronic sounds, full of un­ex­pected twists and turns. Both Tri­an­gle and last year’s How to Run Away al­bums, as well as tours with acts such as Gold Panda, have seen many more sign­ing up to Slow Magic’s fan­club. BIRTH­DAY Torque Torque cel­e­brates its first birth­day with a night on the tiles led by Slow­burn. The work of Phillip Long and David Har­gadon, Slow­burn’s rich, lay­ered grooves have gained them fans over at the Grounded in Hu­man­ity, Apart­ment and Lu­nar Disco la­bels. In ad­di­tion to Slow­burn at large in the cel­lar for four hours, there’s New­bridge duo Gary O’Reilly and Rob Smyth aka Mix & Fair­banks clock­ing in for work with twisted disco and jack­ing ed­its in the smok­ing area. TRAD John Carty, Shane McGowan and Maggie Carty UK-born Roscom­mon res­i­dent John Carty is a spell­bind­ing fid­dle and banjo player and for­mer TG4 Tra­di­tional Mu­si­cian of the Year. Tonight’s in­ti­mate per­for­mance sees him col­lab­o­rate with Shane McGowan on gui­tar and Maggie Carty on banjo. Ex­pect many sub­lime tunes, played with a rare ear for minute de­tail.
