Everything Everything: Dan Hegarty The Alternative, 10.00pm, RTÉ 2fm This week's instalment of live music comes from Everything Everything, the Manchester-based band who released their second album 'Arc' in January. No meat and two veg indie merchants, they are gastronomes of high table music, employing complex song construction and dense, detailed lyrics sung in falsetto by Jonathan Higgs. The band draws on production and rhythmic adventures that bring them into the same playground as contemporary R&B, glitch pop and electronica, not bad friends to be having. (But who is gonna tell me what glitch pop is?) This set was recorded on March 7, 2013 in Lausanne, Switzerland.

New Films: Arena, 7.00pm, RTÉ Radio 1 The nightly arts programme reviews new films Before Midnight and World War Z. The first of these is the third in writer/director Richard Linklater's intriguing, slow burn sequence, starring Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy. In the new film, we meet Jesse and Celine nine years on in Greece. Almost two decades have passed since their first meeting on that train bound for Vienna. Presenter Sean Rocks also talks to Irish film director Ciarán Foy about his imaginatively-shot horror/zombie movie, Citadel, which was filmed in Glasgow, with a mostly Scottish cast. Meanwhile, in the Marc Foster-directed World War Z, there are more Zombies. United Nations employee Gerry Lane travels around the world in a race against time to stop the Zombie pandemic that is toppling armies and governments, and threatening to destroy humanity itself.
