John B. Keane's The Field

“No outsider will bid for my field.” One man and his love for the land; a simple tale it would seem. The Bull McCabe is one of the most foreboding characters to ever grace the Irish stage – hardened, stubborn and complex. His field, represents a lifetime of labour and when it goes for public auction The Bull, played by Michael Harding, is adamant that he is its rightful owner. The harsh landscape of North Kerry is marred with intimidation and desire; a far cry from the misty-eyed vision of the West. We are all familiar with the famous 1990 film adaption, but this is how Keane intended The Field to be enjoyed – in the theatre acted out by an accomplished cast. The play will enjoy a highly anticipated 3 week run at the Gaiety in celebration of its 50th anniversary. Julieanne McMahon

San Fermin

San Fermin deal in pop music of epic proportions. At times it can feel somewhat like a theatrical performance; the music builds slowly, adding instrumentation throughout, before bursting into choruses with vocals careering always towards the edge of the register. Think big triumphant horn sections reminiscent of Beirut; think The National a few months post break-up when they’ve kind of started to get over it and they’ve stopped moaning as much and are a bit of craic on nights out again. In the current record industry climate, there is a lot to be said for an 8-piece band making their way around the world on tour without having to resort to sleeping rough and eating one another. So if not for the fantastic music, at least come to applaud these brave people for their resilience of spirit. / Ben Allen

Flying Lotus

Since Cosmogramma it seems Flying Lotus’ music has become more dreamlike. While Cosmogramma was inspired by the study of the planet and their relation to mortality You’re Dead! Confronts the idea of mortality head on. Like Sun Ra or Miles Davis, he conveys complex ideas with a unique playfulness. Death is not a permanent grim fact of reality, rather some transcending experience colorful and more akin to a celebration. You’re Dead! certainly reflects this; musical thread morph and change, switching texture from track to track. It's a long way from the Dilla influenced territory in 2010 and much more ambitious. Live musicians feature heavily throughout, further underscoring his flirtations with Jazz. Seeing Flying Lotus in a live band context is sure to be a treat. / Jack Broughan
