ART Echt: Bed­wyr Wil­liams. Post-Elec­tric: Gimme More, Ex­change and Data­base. AIB Éigse Open Sub­mis­sion In­stal­la­tion art meets stand-up com­edy in the per­son of Bed­wyr Wil­liams. Echt, an in­stal­la­tion in­clud­ing a coach in a for­est clear­ing and a film, posits a sin­gu­lar dystopian fu­ture, where sta­tus is based on con­sump­tion and, pro­duc­tion hav­ing col­lapsed, hoard­ers rule the roost. Wil­liams tops the bill of Vis­ual’s sum­mer Éigse sea­son. PUNK/POP Ash And the proof is in the pud­ding of a live gig, right? Hav­ing been awarded The Ticket’s siz­zling hot Al­bum of the Week slot two weeks ago for their new record, Kablammo! – and fol­low­ing their wide-open spa­ces show at Slane Cas­tle last week – Ash re­turn to where they truly excel: a small venue with a roof. Kablammo!? More like BIFF! THWACK! POW!
