TRAD Ré Theatre Royal, Water­ford 8pm ¤21 the­atreroyal.ie Their name de­notes “moon” or “era” in Ir­ish, and Liam Ó Maon­laí’s band of hardy mu­si­cians shed fresh light on many songs and tunes from our tra­di­tion, and bring new com­po­si­tions to the party too. Con­nemara singer Eithne Ní Chatháin’s oth­er­worldly sits beau­ti­fully along­side con­certina player, Cor­mac Be­g­ley’s wide open vis­tas, thanks to his mas­tery of the pic­colo, treble, bass and bari­tone ver­sions of his cho­sen in­stru­ment. Hot­house Flower Peter O’Toole and piper Maitiú Ó Ca­saide com­plete what is a highly evolved col­lec­tive of mu­si­cal lat­eral thinkers. SL DISCOPOLIS Todd Terry Num­ber 22 Dublin 11pm ¤20/¤15 num­ber­twen­tytwo.ie It’s not just the name on the bill which has leg­endary sta­tus in this case. Num­ber 22 is for­merly the Crys­tal Ball­room, McGona­gles and Sys­tem and has gone through a few strange in­car­na­tions since re-open­ing in 2016 such as a din­ner-dance venue called Mag­is­to­rium. The ar­rival of Todd Terry would in­di­cate that the book­ers are now try­ing some­thing new again. The New Yorker is house mu­sic roy­alty, some­one who has put his mark on the cul­ture via a plethora of re­leases and remixes. Take a lis­ten to what he did for Ev­ery­thing But the Girl with Miss­ing and The Jun­gle Broth­ers’ I’ll House You – two remixes which very much stand the test of time. JC JAZZ Guil­foyle/Buck­ley/Whyte Arthurs, Thomas St, Dublin, 4pm, ¤10, arthur­spub.ie Drum­mer Conor Guil­foyle is in such de­mand as a teacher of other stick wield­ers – his book on odd me­ters has be­come a standard text in­ter­na­tion­ally - that live ap­pear­ances are rarer than they should be. Since the late 1980s, Guil­foyle has been a ma­jor force on the Ir­ish jazz scene, both through col­lab­o­ra­tions with his brother, bassist and com­poser Ro­nan, and lead­ing his own Afro-Cuban bands – Dig Dis, Saoco, Ha­vana Son and the Night in Ha­vana Orches­tra. This im­promptu trio with sax­o­phone colos­sus Michael Buck­ley and bassist Derek Whyte is likely to be a ro­bust ex­change of views, to say the least. CL SATUR­DAY LOVE SUN­DAY Mister Satur­day Night Pyg Dublin 9.15pm ¤10 pyg.ie New York-based Der­ry­man Ea­mon Harkin and his side­kick Justin Carter above) con­tinue to reach new heights with their Mister Satur­day Night ven­ture. It’s a se­ries of par­ties and la­bel re­leases which have com­bined the duo’s in­fec­tious sound­track for good times with a de­sire to bring a com­mu­nity of like­minded souls to­gether. Sup­port from Colin Perkins and Rob­bie Kitt. JC
