Kaboogie's fortnightly and free night in Thomas House, the K-Club, will feature Scurvy Lass, ForceFed and the first show for a while from Lakker. That's from 8-11.30PM.
After that down the road in the Sycamore Club Alphabet Set will be hosting another quality line-up including Sunken Foal, Sarsparilla, Cignol, Jimmy Penguin and Ventolyn & Becotyde, Love Rhino, Laura Sheeran and Solen. A very reasonable €6 before 12, €8 after.
Alternatively, if you're in the mood for more dancefloor oriented music, Takeover Recordings, Nice & Nasty and Static Recordings will be taking over Pygmalion on South William Street from 6-2.30PM with a big line up of electro and techno acts on the 3 label's rosters. More info can be found here.
It's got to be !kaboogie again on Friday with London bass wizard ScanOne in Twisted Pepper, with support from one half of Lakker Eomac and a liveset from 16 Hertz & Johnny Oakley.
A4 Sounds take over the Back Loft gallery for the afternoon with an installation / gig / social experiment involving wind-up sculptures, live audience participation painting and sets from Gland & Conduit, Scurvy Lass, Junior 85 and a rare performance by Boondoggle/Bluebottle Farm and Vanessa Parody. A4 gigs are always memorable (and usually messy), and we're guessing major fun and surreality will be the order of the day Sunday. The perfect way to end the Hallowe'en / DEAF era and await the Christmas marketing fever that will follow...
