Vicar Street, Dublin, ¤47 tick­et­mas­ Squeeze’s Up the Junc­tion is one of those per­fect songs. Like The Kinks’ Water­loo Sunset, it cap­tures a snapshot of a by­gone London. Chris Dif­ford and Glenn Til­brook are re­spon­si­ble such clas­sica as Cool for Cats and Pulling Mus­sels (From the Shell), that can jolt you back to a once-for­got­ten mem­ory. With an ever-chang­ing line up, this tour on the back of their 2015 al­bum Cra­dle to the Grave is a de­light­ful stroll down mem­ory lane. TCL

ART Week­end Plans – Nan Goldin

Imma, Royal Hos­pi­tal, Kil­main­ham, Dublin 8, Un­til Oc­to­ber 15 You still have a cou­ple of weeks to get up to Imma and see Nan Goldin’s Bal­lad of Sex­ual De­pen­dency, in­stalled as part of her larger ex­hi­bi­tion. Orig­i­nally per­formed as a slideshow in 1985, it’s a se­quence of al­most 700 of Goldin’s pho­tographs, show­ing friends, lovers and club­bers as Ber­lin, Bos­ton and New York dis­cov­ered the highs of the club scene, and the rav­ages of do­mes­tic vi­o­lence, drug abuse and Aids. De­spite the dark side, it’s also a glo­ri­ous cel­e­bra­tion of love and difference, with a sound­track that runs from Maria Cal­las to The Vel­vet Un­der­ground. Give it time, watch the whole thing, and come out deeply moved. GT
