SONG­WRITER Roy Harper At 75 years of age, Manch­ester­born song­writer Roy Harper shows lit­tle sign of re­treat­ing. He has lived in Co Cork for some years and so this venue is well known to him; ex­pect, then, a fa­mil­iar at­mos­phere, and a traipse through some of the most orig­i­nal baroque-folk songs of the past 40 years. HOUSE Pro­sumer As a long-time res­i­dent at Ber­lin’s Panorama Bar, Achim “Pro­sumer” Bran­den­burg sound­tracked the top floor of the fa­bled Berghain club with warm house and tech grooves. Orig­i­nally from Saar­bruecken and now based in Ed­in­burgh, his ad­ven­tures as a DJ be­gan when he worked be­hind the counter at Hard Wax in Ber­lin be­fore mov­ing on to spin tunes at clubs world­wide. Sup­port in Dublin from Colin Perkins, with Chug and the Twitch DJs in Belfast. CLUB Boys Noize Alex Ridha is the dude be­hind Boys Noize, some­one who has proven to be a very suc­cess­ful op­er­a­tor when it comes to tough, in­fec­tious, dance­floor-friendly elec­tro, house and techno. As a DJ, pro­ducer, remixer and artist (check his May­day al­bum from a few months back for a sam­ple of his smarts), Ridha’s re­leases for In­ter­na­tional Dee­jay Gigolo, Kit­sune, Turbo and his own Boys Noize have es­tab­lished his cre­den­tials as some­one who knows how to tweak and turn a cut to rock a club. Sup­port from DeFeKT. IR­ISH ROCK 2FOR1 Trou­ble Pil­grims/The Drays There is an ar­gu­ment to be made for fuller ap­pre­ci­a­tion of mu­si­cians of once crit­i­cally ac­claimed rock bands, and here are two of the strong­est ones – Trou­ble Pil­grim fea­tures former mem­bers of The Ra­di­a­tors, and The Drays former mem­bers of Stars of Heaven. Each cur­rent band con­tin­ues to de­liver, re­spec­tively, gnarly garage punk (Trou­ble Pil­grim) and grace­ful Amer­i­cana-hued rock (The Drays). TRAD Tunes In The Church
