R&B/ROCK Hanni El Khatib Academy, Dublin 7pm ¤16 tick­et­mas­ter.ie How ex­actly does a kid who grew up skate­board­ing and lis­ten­ing to soul, doo-wop and 1960s Brit­pop – and who then be­came in­volved in de­sign­ing urban clothes wear – trans­form into a multi-in­stru­men­tal­ist song­writer whose mu­sic is used in TV com­mer­cials for com­pa­nies like Nike and Audi? If you’re San Fran­cisco-born Hanni El Khatib, the an­swer to that ques­tion is sim­ple: you hook up with Black Keys main man Dan Auer­bach, re­lease an al­bum of blues rock im­bued with punk and hip-hop (2013’s Head in the Dirt), and wait for ac­claim to come your way. Which it did. Easy-peasy! TCL ART Breathe – Nigel Rolfe Green on Red Gallery, Park Lane, Spencer Dock, Dublin 1 Un­til Oc­to­ber 13 greenonredgallery.com We do it all time. It seems so in­con­se­quen­tial and yet, when it fails, we’re fin­ished. One of Ire­land’s lead­ing and pi­o­neer­ing per­for­mance artists, Nigel Rolfe, turns his at­ten­tion to some­thing as sim­ple-seem­ing as breath­ing. In the gallery, this tran­spires through pho­to­graphs, per­for­mance, film and “draw­ings” made by blow­ing pig­ments across pa­per – which could have been one of those art things that cause you to sigh, but in the hands (or rather breath) of an artist like this, are a source of wonder in­stead.
