TRAD Dónal Lunny and Andy Irvine A special chance to catch Lunny and Irvine in an intimate, Pascal Arbez takes his own sweet time. Just three albums have come from the Frenchman whose OK Cowboy debut of thrilling electro disco appeared in 2005, but the Dijon native’s stock remains high. He played a rare DJ set in Dublin about 12 months ago and he’s back tonight for his first live show in the city in yonks, so it will be interesting to gauge what’s turning on the Vitalic sound system these days. 9th BIRTHDAY Twitch Twitch mark another year of fine techno and house with an all-star cast of spinners. Dutchman Martyn tops the bill, a producer whose adventurous approach to electronic music can be viewed by the span of his three albums to date. Between his Great Lengths debut and last year’s The Air Between Words, he’s covered a lot of ground, as well as collaborating with Four Tet and Inga Copeland. Support from Twitch regulars Matt Burns,
Slack Society and Phil Lucas. 10th BIRTHDAY Big Dish Go A DJ who has caused much bouncing on Dublin dancefloors down through the years, Ivan Smagghe joins Big Dish Go for tonight’s bash. The Parisian DJ and producer initially made his mark as Black Strobe acid warrior and Kill the DJ rep.
