How much fun was last night? Total blast.
UnaRocks kicked it off playing some new MIA remixes, dropping The Organ and Glasvegas.
Dark Room Notes picked up the tempo amongst our new recession sweetie additions (love heart sherbet dips, drumsticks and refreshers) playing some rock and roll. Everyone had some beers and cocktails and the vibe was savage.
Then it was ON. Dublin Streets dropped Gloria Estefan, New Kids on the Block, Mariah, Bloc Party and Hercules and Love Affair, teeing up Rick O’Shea who wrecked the gaff with hardcore amazing indie. And the Spice Girls!
His talents prompted a tag team tune-off between himself and UnaRocks. Everything was cracked open; Bonnie Tyler, the drum and bass version of John Waters interview on Newstalk slagging bloggers (seriously), MGMT, Hot Chip, Delorentos, Fight Like Apes and more. So awesome.
And so SoundCheck went, we couldn’t stop, so we went all the way to 2.30am even though we’re ‘officially’ done at 11pm. What did we end with? Frightened Rabbit ‘Keep Yourself Warm’. Just for the laugh, like.
Big ups to EVERYONE for coming down- the place was packed! The Dublin Streets posse, bloggers all over the gaff (hello Mulley!), Fight Like Apes – thanks for taking a break to pop in just before the Ting Tings tour, rock on! – Grand Pocket Orchestra, Phantom homies, Kiss homies, everyone was in the house!
What a deadly night.
See y’all next week!
