The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - SEVEN DAYS - THE AFTERS Or­bital Tengu Dublin 11pm ¤20 ya­ JC

Given the li­cens­ing laws of this coun­try, there was lit­tle chance that For­bid­den Fruit would get the nod to go all night long in Dublin 8. In­stead, the sold-out event is tak­ing over the city’s clubs for some late-night high jinks in­volv­ing a range of acts in­clud­ing Snake­hips, Hot Chip, Booka Shade and more, with Or­bital the pick of the bunch tonight. It’s their third spin on the Or­bital round­about, hav­ing hung up their head-torches af­ter last-ever-gigs in 2004 and in 2014. Sup­port from Colin Perkins and Donal Di­neen. JAZZ Meilana Gil­lard Cres­cent Arts Cen­tre, Belfast, 8.30pm, £12 Lon­don-born and Ohio-raised, sax­o­phon­ist Meilana Gil­lard cut her teeth on the New York scene with the likes of Greg Osby, Charli Per­sip and Chris­tian McBride.
