What's on around the place tonight and the weekend..

FREE gig in Dolan's tonight as Live 95FM presenter Alan Jacques serves up three bands for your delectation..

Top of the bill is Dublin five-piece Heritage Centre, who are promoting their debut EP 'The City, The Tree and The Fox'. Haven't heard it yet (sitting on my desk at home) but their sound is described as somewhere between Weezer, Elliot Smith and Pavement. Now there's an eclectic bunch you wouldn't normally see in the same sentence.

Support from acoustic pop duo Star Crossed Enemies and Limerick's own Pio. Upstairs, Doors from 8pm.

Also tonight, American guitarist, composer and instrumentalist Gyan Riley takes to the stage in the Warehouse, a guest of Limerick Jazz Soc. Should be a good one. 8.30pm.

Out in UL, students from from the Irish Academy of Music are to play a 24-hour session this Thursday in order to raise funds for a fellow musician.
24 beats in a bar will begin at 10pm and the music won’t stop until 10pm on Friday. The 24-hour gig is in support of Luis Asturias, a Spanish musician who has lived in Ireland for the past 12 years.

Another FREE gig in Baker Place this Thursday as The Buzzmonkeys, Drumming Room and Hammered all play in the Tait Square venue.
