DEAF FUNDRAISER – Food, Full Bar + Running Order

Here are a few updates for next weeks fundraiser to encourage early arrivals plus news of new additions to the festival lineup in October.

From 6pm there will be a full bar & restaurant setup on the square from Porterhouse Bars & Pintxo Tapas Restaurant in Temple Bar, we’ll set up a seated/table area where food such as paella & gourmet hot dogs will be served plus a discounted beverage price will be in place if eating & drinking (and don’t forget the square will have a temporary roof in place on the night).

The evening will kick off with Patrick Kelleher & His Cold Dead Hands at 6.30pm followed by Channel One, Thread Pulls, The Jimmy Cake, Boxcutter & so on (running order below).  Also, Skinny Wolves & Maximum Joy will hold the fort with vinyl-only dj sets kicking off the night & during changeovers.  Each band will get approximately 35 minute slots & changeovers will take approx 10 minutes as we’re squeezing in as much over the 7 hours as possible! The bands will be supported visually by our DEAF vj Alan Lambert aka Metaldragon.

So we recommend you buy your tickets in advance, come down early & make a night of it, eat, drink & take in the best bands around Dublin at the moment.
