Those interested in new music, noise and experimental jazz should check out the Bottlenote Festival which takes place in Dublin’s Twisted Pepper on December 4 and 5.

The main sets will feature four members from the Bottlenote collective – Seán Óg, Shane Latimer, Simon Jermyn and Justin Carroll - collaborating with visiting artists from Norway, Paris, Denmark and London. Aside from two nights of double bills featuring newly commissioned music, Bottlenote will also feature Bang Hazard and Lead Soup as well as laptop sets from Estonian sound artist Alo Allik and Dublin’s Eomac. There will also be a couple of free educational workshops.

Weekend tickets are €20 (€14 concessions) and admission per night will be €12 and €8. Full schedule for the festival here.

Still with the jazzers, the Galway Jazz Festival runs from this Thursday to Sunday and features shows from Trygve Seim Orchestra, Rebecca Martin & Larry Grenadier, Métier, Francesco Turrisi Trio, Buckley, Stowell, Feely, Polar Bear (video below), Julia Hülsmann Trio and Matthew Berrill’s Galway Allstars.
