FES­TI­VAL Bram Stoker Fes­ti­val Most peo­ple know the Dublin­born Bram Stoker as a dili­gent jour­nal­ist and com­pe­tent 19th-cen­tury theatre man­ager with an in­no­va­tive en­thu­si­asm for new gas light­ing tech­niques, but did you know he also wrote hor­ror sto­ries? In­spired by this du­al­ity, one pre­sumes, this an­nual Hal­loween cel­e­bra­tion of all things gothic di­vides it­self be­tween day and night events (“liv­ing sto­ries” and “deadly ad­ven­tures”, it can­nily ad­vises). Among the spooky evening of­fers are the ghoul­ish de­lights of a con­tem­po­rary freak­show, Bleedin’ Deadly (Pil­lar Rooms Oct 28th-31st), em­ceed by the re­doubtable Space Cow­boy, and an aerial per­for­mance, Be­hind the Dark (St Anne’s Park, Oct 28th-30th) per­formed in Bram’s old neigh­bour­hood for the grate­ful chil­dren of the night. FES­TI­VAL Sligo Live This West of Ire­land folks/roots/in­die fes­ti­val cel­e­brates its 12th year with an­other de­cent line-up that might well tempt city dwellers to its many doors. The ma­jor shows take place in Knocknarea Arena – Ro­drigo y Gabriela (be­low) tonight, Lit­tle Green Cars per­form to­mor­row, Satur­day, and The Saw Doc­tors (with spe­cial guests Orchid Col­lec­tive), Sun­day, but there are also many smaller venues with great mu­sic to in­ves­ti­gate. Check out the event web­site for full de­tails. ELEC­TRO-POP All Tvvins When Ir­ish mu­si­cians Lar Kaye and Conor Adams de­parted their bands (Ade­bisi Shank and The Cast of Cheers), lit­tle did they know that within a short space of time they would eclipse the com­bined sales and pro­file of their for­mer acts. With a jus­ti­fi­ably gar­landed de­but al­bum ( IIVV) to shop around, it’s all sys­tems go for All Tvvins as they head­line their big­gest Ir­ish in­door show to date.
