Kris­ten Hersh Na­tional Con­cert Hall, Dublin, 8pm, ¤28/¤25/¤22.50, nch.ie

Kris­ten Hersh holds a very spe­cial pace in the hearts of in­die mu­sic fans that came of age when her first ma­jor band Throw­ing Muses (and sub­se­quently 50 Foot Wave) made its alt-rock pres­ence felt through­out most of the ‘80s, ‘90s and be­yond. For the past 20-plus years, how­ever, she has also pro­duced a sub­stan­tial cat­a­logue of solo work, of which she has de­scribed as turn­ing in­tense “ugly feel­ings” into art. She vis­its Dublin for a rare solo con­cert on the back of re­cently re­leased al­bum/book, Wy­att at the Coy­ote Palace, and is re­ally not to be missed.
