The Strypes JRBs, New­bridge, Co Kil­dare 8pm ¤12 Also Sat, Done­gal; Tues/Thurs, Meath Ca­van’s Strypes may not yet be a ma­jor head­line act, and takes some ca­jones to em­bark on a 20-date Ir­ish tour to road test new ma­te­rial. Spe­cial guest through­out is The Mighty Stef.

Tony Clay­ton-Lea CLUB Scuba Twisted Pep­per, Dublin 10.30pm ¤15/¤13 face­ Of­fi­cialScuba When Paul Rose isn’t run­ning the canny Hot­flush la­bel, he works the switches and ma­chines as Scuba. Al­bums such as Tri­an­gu­la­tion and Per­son­al­ity have demon­strated that the Ber­lin-by-way-ofBris­tol man is a dab hand when it comes to sculpt­ing and shap­ing dark, moody, liq­uid thumpers as he roams deep and wide amid house and techno’s hin­ter­land. Sup­port from the Room19 crew.

Jim Car­roll SU­PER­STAR DJ

Sasha But­ton Fac­tory, Dublin 11pm ¤22.50 Alexander Coe is the orig­i­nal of the su­per­star DJ species. His prow­ess as a DJ comes down to an in­nate abilty to tweak those big room sound-sys­tems and send the crowds home scream­ing. De­spite a record re­leas­ing ca­reer that hasn’t set the world alight, he re­mains a guar­an­teed big draw on the in­ter­na­tional club cir­cuit. JC


Jeff Bal­lard Fair­grounds Christchur­ch Cathe­dral, Dublin 8pm ¤24 Drum­mer Jeff Bal­lard’s day job is tour­ing with the Brad Mehldau Trio. When he’s not do­ing that, he’s play­ing with Fair­grounds, fea­tur­ing ex-Her­bie Han­cock gui­tarist Lionel Loueke, Bad Plus bassist Reid An­der­son and front rank NYC pi­anist Kevin Hays. Bal­lard says his last gig in Dublin was what con­vinced him to keep Fair­grounds to­gether, so it’s time for the city to give the drum­mer some more love. Cor­mac Larkin CHANTEUSE Karen Egan

Whe­lan’s, Dublin 8pm ¤20 Karen Egan has had quite the che­quered ca­reer, whether it’s per­form­ing with the Nualas, work­ing on ra­dio or act­ing on stage or screen (in English or Finnish). Tonight sees her launch her sec­ond al­bum, Char­la­tanne. Ex­pect a gal­lop through a range of mu­si­cal styles, and the be­tween-song ban­ter should be sharp as a knife. LM
