Jeff Ballard Fairgrounds

It's most likely that you, like me, got your most recent jazz kick from the astounding Whiplash. So whether you know your Elvin Jones from your JK Simmons is incidental, this is the real deal made flesh. Perhaps best known in the jazz circuit as part of Brad Mehldau's Trio, in his own right Jeff Ballard is a chance to witness the thrills of a real life human perspiring talent. Fairgrounds is Ballard's most recent project and brings together an ever changing configuration of musicians teasing out new soundscapes with this master of  polyrhythms. Tonight it includes piano, guitar and electronics. Expect this to skim and soar, to dazzle and enthrall and to allow us all to move on from Whiplash with a more fully formed appreciation of the craft. Win Tickets / Michael McDermott

Purple Rain

Let’s be honest, Purple Rain is by no means an auteur's movie, but god is it fun to watch. Less of a documentary about Prince’s early life and more accurately a mythology. Loosely based around Prince’s early life, the film covers Prince’s unhappy home life and bitter rise to relevancy. Sound serious? Purple Rain is anything but. Sprinkled with high waist pants, quiffs, rhinestones and choreographed band dance routines, the whole affair is to say the least a bit kitsch, but in the best sense of the word. Purple Rain's also boasts stunning cinematography. Each live performance in the film is engaging colorful and so chocked with over the top performances it's hard not to gripe about the sheer absurdity of it all. Like a portal to an 80's club circuit that never was, Purple rain in many ways is the definitive Prince documentary. Loosely based in reality and utterly enthralling. / Jack Broughan

comedy

Al Porter Is Yours

I first met Al Porter when were both idealistic English students at Trinity College. He was the purple-suit-clad darling of Players’ theatre and when he dropped out of college to pursue comedy, no-one was too surprised. Now, at the age of 21, he is the youngest Irish comedian ever to headline a Vicar Street gig. And it’s not hard to see why he’s doing so well. With his flamboyant personality, triple entendres and filthy in-jokes, the man exudes a stage presence you can’t help but admire. Come hear tales of Al’s childhood in Tallaght, failed conquests and STD clinics. Watch him flirt shamelessly with handsome and desperately uncomfortable audience members until they look like they might get up to leave, and laugh until you cry. All hail Ireland’s new King of Camp! / Kayla Walsh

Appropriate Behaviour

At a cursory glance, Appropriate Behaviour may seem like something you've seen before: a young affluent woman mills about New York and deals with the fallout from a recent break-up. Rest assured, however, this isn't Tiny Furniture 2.0. Instead it's an exciting showcase for star Desiree Akhavan, whom you may recognise from the latest season of Girls. As an Iranian-American struggling with a bad case of post-break up angst and wondering how best to come out to her Persian parents as bisexual, Akhavan offers up a refreshing twist on an otherwise familiar genre. This is a witty and vibrant portrayal of life as a twenty-something in New York that heralds the arrival of a distinct cinematic voice. Perfect viewing or those partial to Frances Ha, Obvious Child et al. / Amy O'Connor
