Des O’Driscoll picks the best events taking place this week
1 |gig| THE SCRIPT
Ireland’s second-biggest band are back on track with a new album, and a gig in their home town.
2|TV| THE STATE
Recent atrocities have made this four-part drama series about Europeans who join Islamic State all the more pertinent.
3 |festival| MASTERS OF TRADITION
Bantry opens its doors to the likes of
Martin Hayes, Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh and Mícheál Ó Súilleabháin for five days of top-class music.
Kathryn Bigelow’s tale of racism in Detroit in 1967 is another one that feels more
relevant because of recent events.
5 |album| THE WAR ON DRUGS
The indie heroes from Philadelphia have already been getting good reviews for their fourth studio album, A Deeper Understanding.
