The lads at Strutt have organised a major hoedown for the bank holiday weekend, which if you are interested in soul, funk, house, techno or afrobeat, you should be covered.
They take over Dolan's on Sunday, October 26. In the Warehouse, they have Scottish duo Slam, who while never really my preferred choice of hot beverage, have left an undeniable mark on dance music over the past two decades, through their own releases, their djing worldwide, but also through their own label Soma.
What is on upstairs that night is intriguing me a little bit more. The Poets Of Rhythm are a funk/soul kinda job from Germany of all places. They've played Limerick before (summer 2007) when I was off travelling, but I've heard that they were the business. The recorded tracks on myspace have been getting numerous plays 'round here, and further investigation is definitely required (I reckon PC and Cheebah would be able to make some recommendations as to where to take this.)
Tickets are now available from Dolan's for €20, which covers both venues, and it all kicks off at 9pm, with guest djs upstairs A2DF, Paul Tarpey and Broken Funk DJs.
In the meantime, let The Poets mesmerise you with this clip from their last visit to Limerick
