Culture vulture: What not to miss this week
Whether you are staying in or going out, we pick the events not to miss this week.
After a decade-plus of obscurity, the spotlight is at last on producer and DJ Simon Green. Chronicling the infrequent highs and many lows of life as a touring musician, new album Migration has brought "overnight" acclaim. Live, textured grooves and fragile melodies are bolstered by zinging beats and a determination, on behalf of performer and audience, to live in the moment. Monday, Vicar Street, Dublin
The Same by Enda Walsh
Your last chance to see the new work from David Bowie collaborator Walsh and Corcadorca, with whom he produced his break-out piece Disco Pigs. The venue is a decommissioned prison on Cork's northside, with sisters Catherine and Eileen Walsh playing strangers entangled in one another's lives. Friday and Saturday, Cork Prison, Rathmore Road
The folk show
The Australian singer carries a book of Leonard Cohen lyrics with her and it shows, with her songs mingling wit, wonder and beyond-her-years wisdom. Debut album Don't Let The Kids Win was one of 2016's most accomplished folk LPs - a ragged, sad-eyed mini-masterpiece that encouraged obsessive listening. Saturday, Whelan's, Dublin
Batman: The Telltale Series
On the heels of the hilarious/profound Lego Batman Movie comes a new interactive caper from adventure specialists Telltale. You lead the Dark Knight through a thrillingly noir-ish recreation of Gotham.

Z: The Beginning of Everything
Christina Ricci (above) is at her brittle best as 1920s socialite Zelda Fitzgerald, wife of jazz age laureate F Scott and troubled icon in her own right (bizarre fact: she inspired the princess in the Legend of Zelda video games). With Amazon signing the cheques, the period touches are sumptuous.
