NEW­BIE Sara­mai

Whe­lan’s Up­stairs Dublin 8pm ¤10 whe­lanslive.com This Meath trio is named af­ter their singer, who in the real world is the sis­ter of The Lost Broth­ers’ Oisin Leech. We first caught a gig of theirs at Din­gle’s Other Voices last De­cem­ber, and since, they have de­liv­ered mu­sic that eases its way into the sys­tem. This gig wit­nesses the launch of Sara­mai’s new EP, Mag­netic North, and in a ges­ture we ad­mire, the ad­mis­sion price in­cludes a free copy. TCL

ROYAL VISIT Princess Nokia

Grand So­cial Dublin 7.30pm ¤10 princess­nokia.org Fea­tur­ing New York per­former and rap­per Des­tiny Fras­queri (above right) and pro­ducer Christo­pher Lare, Princess Nokia’s sound­clash is as colour­ful and vivid as the city which pro­duced them. Both have been in­volved in other projects (Frasqieri most promi­nently as Wavy Spice), but Princess Nokia’s lat­est mix­tape 1992 demon­strates a sure foot­ing when it comes to nav­i­gat­ing such is­sues as race, iden­tity and gen­der.

RHYTHM MON­STERS The Long Way Around

JJ Smyths, Dublin, 9pm, ¤10, jjs­myths.com Com­poser, bassist, ed­u­ca­tor and rhythm mas­ter Ro­nan Guil­foyle ex­cels par­tic­u­larly in the loose­ness of the trio set­ting, where his force­ful, met­ri­cally in­quis­i­tive play­ing has free rein. For his lat­est three-piece, the Dún Laoghaire man has drafted two of the younger gen­er­a­tion’s finest, his son gui­tarist Chris Guil­foyle and ris­ing drum­mer Matthew Ja­cob­son. The aptly-named trio play this one-off con­cert of new mu­sic prior to de­part­ing for a tour of Aus­tralia. CL
