POP-UP JAZZ CLUB Strut The Improvised Music Company stages a guerilla action in the Abbey this week, turning the Peacock stage into a pop-up jazz club that, over four days,will push the jazz envelope in all directions: funky Danish organ trio Ibrahim Electric (right) get things grooving on Wednesday night; fast-rising vocalist Lauren Kinsella’s Blue-Eyed Hawk bring their many-hued sounds to Thursday’s curtain raiser; and then three talented Guilfoyles and guesting Austrian trumpeter rent said curtain in twain with a scorching late show. Continues next week. HOMECOMING U2 In which the Innocence + Experience tour finally makes it home. Now tweaked to what is, by all accounts, a streamlined, seamless whole, this is U2’s first official indoor show in Ireland since late December 1989 (when they played The Point). And, of course, as if we needed reminding, they are in Dublin next week – November 23rd, 24th, 27th and 28th. TWIN PEEK In Dreams: David Lynch Revisited Making its debut in Ireland, this is a live homage to music and songs from director David Lynch’s film and television work. Musical director David Coulter oversees Jehnny Beth (Savages), Stuart Staples (Tindersticks), Mick Harvey (ex-Bad Seeds), Conor O’Brien (Villagers), Cibo Matto, Stealing Sheep, and mor, in a unique show that has been acclaimed from Australia to the UK. Unmissable?
