SONG­WRITER/PRO­DUCER James Blake Olympia the­atre Dublin 8pm ¤37 tick­et­mas­ Be­gin­ning his im­mensely suc­cess­ful ca­reer six years ago as a song­writer, mu­si­cian and pro­ducer with a trio of dub­step EPs, Lon­doner James Blake has since ad­vanced into the up­per realms of pop mu­sic by col­lab­o­rat­ing with the likes of Bon Iver, Kanye West and Bey­oncé. Solo shows such as this, how­ever, dial down the fame quo­tient, and present Blake’s of­ten frag­ile and min­i­mal­ist mu­sic to good ef­fect. TCL HOUSE Eats Ev­ery­thing Car­bon Gal­way 10pm ¤12/¤11 face­­way It’s been an­other busy year for Bris­tol pro­ducer and DJ Daniel Pearce aka Eat Ev­ery­thing. Pick of the bunch from his 2016 out­put for many would prob­a­bly be his thump­ing, sound sys­tem-both­er­ing re­work of Green Vel­vet’s clas­sic Flash. Pearce can add that to his re­leases for Claude Von Stroke’s Dir­ty­bird and his own Ed­i­ble la­bels and remixes for such blue-chip acts as Rudi­men­tal, Four Tet and Dis­clo­sure. Sup­port from the NOIR res­i­dents.

The re­sult is a cross-sec­tion of both Ir­ish res­i­den­tial ar­chi­tec­ture in that time span - and the archive’s con­sid­er­able hold­ings.
