DJ Night: Party Like It’s 1999! (Fundraiser for Palestine)
Unfortunately due to circumstances beyond our control, this event has been POSTPONED until Saturday 29th September. Mark your diaries now!
Come and party like its 1990 to 1999 inclusive!
Friday 22nd June 2018. 8pm til Late. The Cobblestone, Smithfield Square.
Wazzzzzzap? Journey with us, back, back to a time when a wobbly screen dissolve indicated a tv flashback sequence; tye-dye t-shirts and X-Worx jeans were inexplicably considered stylish; the mid-parted bowl cut was an acceptable hairstyle; pogs were a thing; Blur vs Oasis mattered (but the coolest kids preferred Pulp, actually); Irish lads wore basketball tops despite having no interest in the sport; Dustin the Turkey ran for President; Richie Kavanagh scandalised the nation with his filth; music was the best, but you had to tape it off the radio; and no one told you life was gonna be this waaaaay *clap* *clap* *clap* *clap* *clap*
The 1990s happened between twenty eight and nineteen years ago. Music then was significantly better then. It may, in fact, have been the Best Music in the World… Ever!
With this in mind, our fly DJs will be playing the music that was recorded and produced during that decade, and should you feel that you would enjoy drinking and dancing in an environment where this, like, totally bangin’ music is played, then don your Converse Allstars and bring your fine self on down to the Cobblestone from 8pm on Friday 22nd June. Once there, you can shake your booty to some of the very dopest (and likely some of the very whackest) in hip-hop ♦ britpop ♦ acid house ♦ reggae ♦ madchester ♦ eurodance ♦ r’n’b ♦ g-funk ♦ baggy ♦ ragga ♦ grunge ♦ jungle ♦ gangsta other fabulous genres of the 1990s. It’s gonna be the muthaphukkin’ bomb!
Naturally, stylin’ 90s fashion is welcome.
So, here’s the 411: Entry is a suggested donation of €10 (or whatever you can afford) and you will be helping the Ireland-Palestine Solidarity Campaign raise much needed funds as they campaign for freedom, justice and equality for the Palestinian people. Word.
