Gimme the lute: Jozef Van Wissem in Dublin
The man behind the Only Lovers Left Alive soundtrack comes to town
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.
