Jozef Van Wissem is the Dutch composer and lutist who lit up Jim Jarmusch’s recent Only Lovers Left Alive film with his smartly observed, hypnotic ream of ancient lute wig-outs and heavyweight drone sensibilities. He will perform the soundtrack at Whelan’s, Dublin tomorrow night (October 1 from 8pm, admission €12) in association with the Darklight Film Festival and there’s also a pre-show audience Q&A to be hosted by Daniel Gray. Please note that this is a bring-your-own-lute gig.
