Peter O’Grady is Joy Or­bi­son, the London pro­ducer who has been a reg­u­lar in re­cent years since tracks like Hyph Mngo in­tro­duced him to the gallery. While new re­leases may be rel­a­tively rare any­one who saw him at Elec­tric Pic­nic knows he de­liv­ers a mean, meaty set. Support is from the Mud DJs. CLUB Groove Ar­mada Is it re­ally 16 years since Andy Cato and Tom Find­lay first hit the road? That was with the North­ern Star al­bum, and the duo’s sub­se­quent run of tracks like I See You Baby, Su­per­stylin’ and If Every­body Looked the Same took them into the big leagues and made them one of dance mu­sic’s re­li­able fes­ti­val draws. They hit Dublin to help Ab­stract mark three years in the club-run­ning business. TRA­DI­TIONAL MÓRglór This is an in­au­gu­ral award hon­our­ingg the mem­ory of Muiris Ó R ócháin. One of the orig­i­na­tors of the Wil­lie Clancy Sum­mer School, Ó Rócháin was one of the most hos­pitable, en­cour­ag­ing and sup­port­ive forces in tra­di­tional mu­sic. Tonight’s award marks the first in an an­nual event in recog­ni­tion of out­stand­ing con­tri­bu­tion to tra­di­tional mu­sic in Clare. This year’s win­ner is the Co­rofin Tra­di­tional Mu­sic Fes­ti­val. A raft of lo­cal and vis­it­ing mu­si­cians will fea­ture in­clud­ing Derek Hickey, Cyril O Donoghue, Geral­dine and Ea­monn Cot­ter and Chris Droney. BIRTH­DAY Shine It’s another big night out for the Shine team as they mark 19 years on the go. Once a weekly out­ing in Man­dela Hall, the club th­ese days con­tin­ues to book the lead­ing house and techno names. For tonight’s birth­day bash, it’s Groove Ar­mada; Oxia, the French pro­ducer be­hind 24 Heures and Tides of Mind al­bums; Sonny Fodera; techno wizard Ben­jamin Dam­age; and lo­cal reps Chris Hanna, Noc­turne and Sch­mutz. HOUSE The 2 Bears Those who fancy a bearhug should form an or­derly queue by the dance­floor. The Night is Young, sec­ond al­bum from Raf Run­dell and Hot Chip’s Joe God­dard (left), shows that the ur­sine- friendly pro­duc­ers still have plenty to of­fer. It’s a rich, re­ward­ing slew of deeply soul­ful house and disco turns, cal­i­brated to cre­ate eu­pho­ria all night long.
