Weareie Live in the Mix

There's a couple of gigs coming up featuring the weareie Cru which may be worth a look for d+b and reggae/dancehall fans:

First up, Naphta comes out of retirement (for the nth time) tomorrow night to play at Don Rosco, T-woc and !Kaboogie's Wobble night at the horrifically renamed 'Twisted Pepper' (formerly Traffic) on Middle Abbey St. The old goat will be playing a set of 'dirty techstep', alongside the dubstep residents, so get your 10 euro ready and head on down around 11 or so for this slightly incongruous combination (great flyer btw).

The following month, Sunday November 16th has me making a debut appearance alongside Ireland's premier soundsystem at the excellent Worries Outernational 'Dancehall styles' session at the (also horrifically renamed) 'Button Factory' (formerly the Music Centre) in Temple Bar. It's been a while since I've played out any dancehall, and, with a huge weight of tunes to get off my back, I have a bulging bag of early 90's roots riddims lined up. Expect a tuff selection featuring loads of classic riddims with artists like Garnett Silk, Stitchie, Bounty, Bailey, Papa San, Shelly Thunder and Tiger in the mix... Doors are at 10 and admission is free.

Both gigs will hopefully be recorded and given the weareie treatment, but if you want to be sure of hearing these sets you'd better get your asses down there for each night!

Is that a picture of Naphta in the wobble poster with his locks flowing?
