CLYDE ROAD CHORAL Anúna St Bartholomew’s Church, Clyde Road, Dublin. 8pm. ¤20/¤15 As Anúna cel­e­brates its 30th year in ex­is­tence, they will be joined by singers from 14 coun­tries, all of whom share a yen for fine-bone choral har­monies and ar­range­ments. Founder Michael McG­lynn has al­ways sought out source ma­te­rial that chal­lenges as well as high­lights the en­sem­ble’s ever-evolv­ing vo­cal pal­ette. Tonight they will be joined by stu­dents and del­e­gates from the 2017 In­ter­na­tional Choral Sum­mer School. A fundraiser in aid of the church restora­tion fund. GABBER GABBER HEY Dis­trict x Pussys This may well be the most un­likely re­vival to come our way in 2017. Gabber took off in var­i­ous Dutch cities in the early 1990s where its un­ruly, bois­ter­ous, thump­ing, dis­torted blend of hard­core and acid house at­tracted like-minded devo­tees who thrilled to its 180-bpm, hard-ass sounds. While the sound spread to other Euro­pean coun­ties, it re­mained largely an un­der­ground work­ing class sub­cul­ture. The ex­cel­lent Dis­trict mag­a­zine are hook­ing up with Pussy Club to bring new school gabber ex­po­nent Gabber Ele­ganza to town. He’s Mi­lan DJ Al­berto Guer­rini, whose Gabber Ele­ganza Tum­blr is wall to wall with homages to the Euro-ravers of old. Sup­port from Tommy Holo­han and the Dis­trict DJs. A night for Air Max 90s, buz­z­cuts and Moschino track­suits.

DOU­BLE AL­BUM LAUNCH Caoimhín Ó Raghal­laigh and Garth Knox/En­sem­ble Ériu

The Com­plex, Lit­tle Green St, Dublin, 8pm. ¤15/¤12 In­de­pen­dent record la­bels, par­tic­u­larly those spe­cial­is­ing in new art mu­sic, come and go like sum­mer snow, so the fact that the Di­a­tribe cat­a­logue now num­bers some 30 cut­ting-edge ti­tles is a trib­ute to the de­ter­mi­na­tion and re­silience of pro­duc­ers and mu­si­cians Nick Roth and Matthew Ja­cob­son. Next month, the Dublin la­bel re­leases two more be­yond­genre record­ings: Stargazer, the lat­est mis­sive from the fron­tiers of trad by En­sem­ble Ériu, in­spired by the paint­ings of Jack B Yeats; and All Sound­ings Are True, a col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween 10-string fid­dler Caoimhín Ó Raghal­laigh of Gloam­ing fame and the much-re­spected Scots-Ir­ish vi­ola player Garth Knox. Ar­rive early at this spe­cial pre-launch con­cert, as the chance to see these two in­trepid acts up close is likely to draw a (very hip) crowd.


Arthurs, Dublin, 8pm. ¤10, lis­ The Lis­ten propo­si­tion is so ob­vi­ous, and so straight­for­ward, it’s a won­der there aren’t more like it. Once a month, rather than lurk in the genre shad­ows, Lis­ten pulls to­gether a pro­gramme that flies past the nam­ing nets, de­fy­ing ex­pec­ta­tions and draw­ing au­di­ences with open minds and open ears. This month’s mu­si­cal smor­gas­bord com­bines jazz, folk, im­prov, light opera and sto­ry­telling: Ital­ian-born Dublin-res­i­dent pi­anist Francesco Tur­risi presents his Taquiun trio with cel­list Kate El­lis and sax­o­phon­ist Nick Roth (see above); there’s ir­rev­er­ent Ir­ish mythol­ogy from Sor­cha and Aaron He­garty’s Can­dlelit Tales; some as yet un­spec­i­fied light opera will cel­e­brate Blooms­day; and soon-to-be -huge vo­cal­ist Sue Ryn­hart per­forms ma­te­rial from her su­perb new al­bum, Sig­nals, with Turisi on ac­cor­dion and bassist Dan Bod­well. As the name sug­gests, all you have to do is lis­ten.
