As part of Dublin's Spectrum Festival by the Improvised Music Company, Saturday night is a double-header of two live bands, one from Ireland, one from Finland, held the Grand Social.
Dublin-based math-rock outfit Alarmist make a welcome return to the scene with their quasi orchestral blend of experimental rock, jazz, math and electronic sounds. Meanwhile Pauli Lyytinen’s Helsinki based Magnetia Orkesteri present a fierce and controlled cornucopia of 21st century free jazz meets western chamber music, with tightly woven compositions in an all star quartet that also features celebrated trumpeter Verneri Pohjola.
Tickets are available from Eventbrite, priced from €12 early bird to €49 for the entire festival. Doors open at 8pm.
