Culture vulture - What not to miss this week
The cult classic - Piranha
Can a film truly be so bad it's good? That is the question posed by this schlock classic, dusted down as part of the Light House cinema's Grindhouse season. Played largely for laughs - if you wanted to be arch you could hail it as a deconstruction of Spielberg's Jaws - the 1978 cult debut from director Joe Dante is a riot of bad acting and chomping fishies. Friday, 11pm, Light House Dublin
The gig - Father John Misty
If he wasn't crying he would be laughing. Mercurial troubadour Josh Tillman uses his alter-ego as a way of channelling the pain of a childhood among American evangelicals who believed the apocalypse was literally around the corner. His Dublin residency comes ahead of the release of his third album, God's Favourite Customer. Belt up for wit and scorched earth honesty in equal measures.
Monday-Wednesday, Vicar Street, Dublin
The magic show - Derren Brown
Mentalist and brain hacker Brown brings his "greatest hits" show to Ireland, with a performance that will see him figuratively climb inside the brains of audience volunteers and dazzle us with what he finds there.
Monday-Thursday, Cork Opera House
The podcast - Capital
This British political satire stars comedian Harry Enfield as a UK minister charged with bringing back capital punishment. The tone is knockabout - but its mirroring of the real-world absurdities convulsing British politics makes for a compelling listen.
The TV event - The BBC Biggest Weekend
Glastonbury is having the year off so in its place the BBC has assembled an a-list line-up for live performances through the weekend, including Taylor Swift, Florence and the Machine, Liam Gallagher and, just back from his Irish tour, Ed Sheeran.
Friday-Sunday, BBC Four, BBC One and BBC Two
The box set - Arrested Development
Netflix dropped the ball slightly when it revived the cult comedy several years ago (the reboot was bland and drawn out). But it's back for a second try with Jason Bateman and Portia de Rossi reprising their roles as members of the dysfunctional Bluth family.
Available on Netflix from Tuesday
