ROCK In­door Gar­den Party

Olympia The­atre, Dublin 8pm ¤39.50 tick­et­mas­ter.ie The last time Aus­tralian actor Rus­sell Crowe was in Ire­land he ended up blast­ing out a few tunes on The Late Late Show. He was pretty good, too – loose, well suited to per­form­ing, handy with a gui­tar. The In­door Gar­den Party, as the name sug­gests, in­hab­its a sim­i­lar space, as Crowe – in ca­hoots with Cana­dian mu­si­cian Alan Doyle, Swedish pro­ducer Carl Falk and vo­cal­ists Scott Grimes and Sa­man­tha Barks – delivers orig­i­nal material in rock/pop/soul/folk ar­eas, as well as some well-known cover ver­sions. TCL The Will Gre­gory Moog En­sem­ble Na­tional Con­cert Hall, Dublin 8pm ¤30/¤25 nch.ie Gold­frapp’s Will Gre­gory and Por­tishead’s Adrian Ut­ley over­see an en­sem­ble cast of mu­si­cians that opens up what Moog syn­the­sis­ers can with a va­ri­ety of forms: orig­i­nal com­po­si­tions (one of which, by Gre­gory, was writ­ten to mark the 10th an­niver­sary of the death of the in­stru­ment’s cre­ator, Robert Moog), clas­si­cal works (Bach, Mes­si­aen), film sound­track (John Car­pen­ter) and pop mu­sic (Burt Bacharach). A one-off con­cert? Def­i­nitely that, and a must-see, too. A pre-show public in­ter­view with Gre­gory and Ut­ley, con­ducted by this writer, takes place in the venue at 6pm. TCL

ART Slice, Vast, Deep – Aideen Barry

Mu­nic­i­pal Gallery, dlr Lexi­con, Dún Laoghaire, Co Dublin, Un­til Novem­ber 5 dl­r­coco.ie Ev­ery new in­stal­la­tion by Aideen Barry these days seems like an invitation to fall, Alice in Won­der­land-like, down a rab­bit hole of amaz­ing­ness, and come up smil­ing. Here, tiny draw­ings merge with mini pro­jec­tions that also cast colour­ful dra­mas on the walls. Lose your head in Barry’s clouds (see be­low), for­give the ex­hi­bi­tion hand­out for the phrase “het­er­atopic in­be­tween­ness”, and go back a sec­ond time to dou­ble-check it re­ally is as bril­liant as you first imag­ined. Yes it is. GT
