Senior Infants + The Jeremy Murphy @ The Roundy (8.30pm, free)
I don’t think I can write a better blurb than the lads have: “It’s late at night and [jrmy mrphy] forgot to update your payment method for Netflix. What do you do? Staring at each other (duo) with no working Playstation controller. “Damn!” the duo exclaim. “That new drum sound I heard in EuroSpar is sweet. Wanna just make a beat and [jrmy mrphy] whatever gear is lying around from our other bands?” The duo slowly [jrmy mrphy] upstairs with a bottle of Bailey’s and some incense. “This is so wonky” – the duo smiled.”

Blasha and Allatt @ Dali (10pm, €TBC)
London techno duo and Meat Free bosswomen head upstairs in Carey’s Lane for an appearance as part of Jamie Behan’s Under the Rose residency.
