Hear... music by a band who take their name from the American slang for a marijuana joint. Morcheeba roll up a variety of influences under the convenient title of "trip-hop", from cult films to Nick Drake, and spark up a sound that has had Lenny Kravitz, Talking Heads and George Michael singing praises. Morcheeba begin a UK tour following the release of their album Big Calm. Chill with them tonight at Paradox, Brighton (01273 321 628), then on UK tour. Tickets pounds 7.50-pounds 10.

Watch... short films ranging from a tractor-driving rock'n'roll rebel to an Irish women's football team in Australia, and spot familiar faces from TV and feature films. The Kino Festival of New Irish Cinema's festival selection of 60-plus new shorts includes animation, documentary and student work, with the Irish Film Awards presented on the closing night, and will also premiere three new feature-length films.
