ELEC­TRONIC Kraftwerk Bord Gáis En­ergy The­atre Dublin 8pm ¤89.50/¤75/¤62.50 bor­dgaisen­er­gythe­atre.ie Also Sat; Sun Wa­ter­front Hall Belfast 7pm £80/£60/£49 wa­ter­front.co.uk Of­ten de­scribed as the world’s most in­flu­en­tial group (a claim not with­out truth, but we’d add in The Bea­tles some­where along the way, how­ever), Kraftwerk bring their 3D Cat­a­logue tour to Dublin for the first time. Fronted by sole orig­i­nal found­ing mem­ber Ralf Hüt­ter (right), ex­pect two hours of pi­o­neer­ing elec­tronic mu­sic, breath­tak­ing 3-D vi­su­als, and a few well placed jokes about An­gela Merkel (ac­tu­ally, no). Tony Clay­ton-Lea MAR­ITIME TRAD Howth Trad­fest Var­i­ous venues, Howth, all week­end Andy Irvine and Donal Lunny, Kíla and De­clan O’Rourke gather in this gor­geous coastal set­ting for a knees-up that will weave past, present and pos­si­bly some fu­ture threads into the tradition. Chris Ka­vanagh will cel­e­brate the leg­end that was Luke Kelly too, and lo­cal singers and mu­si­cians are likely to add to the mul­ti­coloured melee. Howth Sing­ing Cir­cle and The Cas­tle Céilí Band have long flown the tra­di­tional mu­sic flag round these parts, so ex­pect plenty of lo­cal mu­si­cians and singers to add their par­tic­u­lar riches to the mix. SL OPERA Lis­more Opera Fes­ti­val Lis­more Cas­tle and other venues Co Water­ford, Fri-Sun lis­more­op­er­afes­ti­val.com If you haven’t booked a ticket yet for Lis­more Opera Fes­ti­val’s new pro­duc­tion of Donizetti’s

L’elisir d’amore in the pic­turesque sur­round­ings of Lis­more Cas­tle you’ll have to get in the queue for re­turns. But the fes­ti­val’s ex­pan­sion plans have this year seen a broad­en­ing of its recitals pro­grammes. There are events in Sal­ter­bridge House by flautist Kieran Moynihan (Satur­day noon), in Fortwilliam Es­tate by mem­bers of the fes­ti­val cho­rus (Satur­day, 2.30pm), in Cap­po­quin House by cast mem­bers from the opera (Sun­day noon), in Tourin House by cel­list Ger­ard Pere­grine (Sun­day, 2.30pm) and at St Carthage’s Cathe­dral, Lis­more, by rapidly ris­ing vi­o­lin­ist Pa­trick Rafter (Sun­day 6pm). MD THE BIG ONE AVA T13 Belfast 1pm £65/£40 (also Sat) avafes­ti­val.com It’s the third time out for AVA and they’ve truly hit new heights this year. As line-ups go, this is one to rel­ish with Jeff Mills and Guil­laume Marmin’s Close En­coun­ters of the Fourth Kind au­dio-vis­ual show top­ping the bill tonight. Over the course of the two days, you also have such lead­ing-edge tal­ents as Berghain’s Mar­cel Dettmann, Ben UFO, Fa­tima Yamaha, Mid­land, Re­bekah and dozens more. There’s a huge con­tin­gent of Ir­ish names – such as Bi­cep, New Jack­son, Ryan Vail, Sch­mutz, Jor­dan, Tin­foil and many more – a re­turn visit from Boiler Room and an all-day con­fer­ence with work­shops, dis­cus­sions and key­notes on Fri­day. Ku­dos ga­lore to Sarah McBriar and her team for what is now one of the es­sen­tial gath­er­ings on the Euro­pean cir­cuit. Jim Car­roll JAZZ F-JOB Arthurs, Dublin, 9pm, €10, arthur­spub.ie It re­mains to be seen whether Arthur’s fine up­stairs room – com­plete with mag­nif­i­cent grand pi­ano – can fill the void in the Ir­ish jazz scene left by the clo­sure of JJ Smyth’s, but the signs so far are en­cour­ag­ing. F-JOB is an acro­nym for pi­anist Greg Fel­ton, drum­mer Matthew Ja­cob­son and bassist Cormac O’Brien, but if it also car­ries a vaguely ob­scene sub­text, that is hardly un­in­tended. Drum­mer Ja­cob­son has been play­ing one-handed since he broke his wrist ear­lier this year, but this per­for­mance of orig­i­nals, re-ar­ranged stan­dards and the odd pop song, all passed through the F-JOB prism, will see him back to his am­bidex­trous best. Cormac Larkin TECHNO Techno & Cans The Hangar Du­bin 10.30pm ¤15/¤12 Stanislav Tolka­chev makes trippy techno which sounds like no-one else around. Since he showed up on a Mo­du­larz com­pi­la­tion back in 2012 with

Build­ing Peaks, the Ukra­nian pro­ducer has seen his pro­file soar thanks to an abil­ity to merge and blend Detroit and Euro­pean styles. Given that span of la­bels he’s worked with, there’s a lot in his back cat­a­logue to check out be­fore this Dublin ap­pear­ance. JC MEET THE EDI­TOR John Mo­rales Pyg Dublin 7pm ¤10 pyg.ie (also Elec­tric Gal­way Sun­day) John Mo­rales is one of the found­ing fa­thers of the disco re-edit busi­ness. The Bronx na­tive started out in the 1970s spin­ning in lo­cal clubs be­fore pro­duc­ing his own ex­tended mixes or ed­its in a very old-fash­ioned way us­ing tape and ra­zor blades around 1975. He be­gan to re­lease some of these be­spoke mixes via the Sun­shine Sound stu­dio and landed of­fi­cial remix jobs for In­ner Life’s I’m

Caught Up and Univer­sal Ro­bot

Band’s Dance and Shake Your Tam­bourine. When he wasn’t in the stu­dio, he was be­hind the decks in spots like the Lime­light, Stu­dio 54, Star­dust Ball­room and other Big Ap­ple sta­ples. For those af­ter some lush, strung-out, deluxe disco, Mo­rales is the man. Sup­port from Get Down Ed­its. JC TRAD Nyah at the Fleadh Kil­naleck Hall, Ca­van 7.30m ¤20 086-8173153 Never a county to think small, Ca­van’s ir­re­press­ible Nyah shenani­gans con­tinue this bank hol­i­day week­end with as im­pres­sive a line up as you’ll encounter this sum­mer. Head­lin­ing are Martin Hayes and Den­nis Cahill, a fid­dle/ guitar duo who have helped us re­con­nect with tra­di­tional tunes in en­tirely new ways. The guest list in­cludes such lu­mi­nar­ies as mu­si­col­o­gist and banjo player Pro­fes­sor Mick Moloney and fid­dler Athena Ter­gis. Pat McCabe will launch his pi­ano ac­cor­dion al­bum tonight too. Lo­cal and na­tional he­roes cel­e­brat­ing the best of what the mu­sic has to bring to the sum­mer. SL
