TOUR Fu­ture Is­lands Dolan’s Ware­house Lim­er­ick 8pm ¤35 (sold out); also Tues, Opera House Cork 7pm ¤35 (sold out) cork­op­er­a­; Wed, Black Box Gal­way 7.30pm ¤38.70 tick­et­mas­; Thurs, Iveagh Gar­dens, Dublin 6.30pm ¤45 (sold out) tick­et­mas­ There have al­ready been sev­eral im­por­tant cul­tural ex­ports from Baltimore, Mary­land (in­clud­ing Edgar Allen Poe, Bil­lie Holiday, Babe Ruth and John Wa­ters), but none has been so fre­net­i­cally ex­cit­ing (and sweaty) as Fu­ture Is­lands. Formed over 10 years ago, their rise to promi­nence wasn’t ex­actly me­te­oric – it wasn’t un­til their fourth al­bum, 2014’s Sin­gles, and the cross­over hit song Sea­sons (Wait­ing on You) that the broader pop­u­la­tion be­gan take note. The band has played here be­fore, but this time they’re treat­ing their Ir­ish fans to a se­ries of shows na­tion­wide. The band – in par­tic­u­lar, lead singer Sa­muel Her­ring (be­low)– are renowned for ex­cep­tion­ally in­tense live performances, so do not miss. TCL ART And Crea­tures Dream… A New Lan­guage A two-venue show at Wex­ford County Coun­cil Build­ings, Car­rick­lawn and Wex­ford Arts Cen­tre, Corn­mar­ket, Wex­ford July 3-Au­gust 25 wex­for­darts­cen­ Con­tem­po­rary artists as­so­ci­ated with Co Wex­ford – with the em­pha­sis on paint­ing, though Michael War­ren, for one, is best known as a sculp­tor. Ge­orge War­ren has es­tab­lished him­self as both pain­ter and sculp­tor, of­ten com­bin­ing the two. The show’s ti­tle is from a Susan Ste­wart poem, A Lan­guage. The propo­si­tion is that we con­sider the work on view in the light of both dreams and lan­guage: “dreams re­fer­ring to the un­known, buried, even ran­dom parts of the self, and lan­guage, a more for­mal, struc­tured, con­scious com­mu­ni­ca­tion sys­tem.” What emerges is that most of the artists en­gage in lively di­a­logues with art of the past and the cur­rent world. The full line-up is im­pres­sive: Robert Arm­strong, John Busher, Ciaran Bowen, Ea­monn Carter, Ser­ena Caulfield, He­len Gaynor, Aileen Mur­phy, Kate Mur­phy, Rosie O’Gor­man, Breda Stacey, Emma Roche, Ge­orge War­ren and Michael War­ren.
