Raver Toddler Parties

Yes, you heard me this is actually a thing. 

Check out this crazy raver party for parents and toddlers in Melbourne. I think I’ll have to get someone to help me set this up in Ireland since I have a baby now. I need to keep the party alive somehow, at least that’s what I keep telling myself.

I personally think this is a great idea, I for one would be bringing my kids, even though it might be more fun for me. Which highlights why it’s a good idea, parents must get bored of doing the same events with there kids, as they are probably not adult friendly.

Anyways would love to hear your thoughts on this, comment below.

What’s on in Dublin this week hmmmmm

Wednesday

  • LCD Soundsystem @ Olympia Theatre
  • Chamber Orchestra @ National concert hall
  • On Blueberry Hill @ Pavilion Theatre

 Thursday & Friday

  • LCD Soundsystem @ Olympia Theatre
  • Class @ Civic Theatre

All week

  • Oktoberfest @ George’s Dock
  • IFI Documentary Festival
  • Sculpture in Context @ Botanical Gardens

Saturday

  • Bradley Zero @ Wigwam

    Of course I have thrown in some of the arts just to be a bit more cultural. I would say LCD Soundsystem is most likey to be completely sold out. 

    So if you didn’t have plans maybe you do now. Also, I know people from around the world check the site out , so if you have anything interesting going on in your town / City this week share by commenting below. Enjoy your week.

    Bradley Zero @ Wigwam 30th Sept

    Incoming incoming, Rhythm Section boss, ex Boiler Room host and world class selector, Mr. Bradley Zero.

     

    If you don’t know the name, you’ll know the face. Bradley cut his teeth in the music game as longtime Boiler Room host and has gone on to start his own label and party called Rhythm Section. In the last number of years Bradley has poured his heart and soul into the Rhythm Section label with releases from Chaos In The CBD, Henry Wu and Hidden Spheres

    Tall Tales Presents – In The Company of Wolves – Halloween Event!!!

    A red cape billows through the wind, trailing through a well manicured garden. Hearts racing feet pacing through damp grass… it shimmers like blades of sliver under a new moons light.
    hunter or the hunted, getting closer to a foreboding house in the distance, some glimpse of safety or perhaps where the very haunting begins.

    Butterflies and cold sweet, quietly and swiftly being stalked. The entrance to the building opens up and swallows us in, ominous shadows, a blur, a flickering light, a cold breath upon my neck. Seeking refuge, a long dark hallway that extends for eternity. A green light and a soft sound from one of the rooms. I enter only to find that very thing lurking behind my every step, the wolf, my lover or my foe. I relinquish my red cloak it sits around my bar ankles like a cooling pool of crimson blood, as i embrace my dark dark night…..

    H&G are back again to bring you an evening of spooky beautiful delights. Emancipate yourself from a city full of lost souls on Halloween weekend and join us on the 29th of October when we whisper into the dead of night, only to hear it whisper back. When fantasy saturates every facet of the evening and reality is no more.

    Admire ephemeral live music and performance in the the faded grander of the Georgian ball room a space known for its overwhelming beauty. Groove with glittering ghastly ghouls in our grand hall, and get lost dancing until the break of dawn to a high paced electronic sound scape
    in the depths of the bloody chamber, hidden amongst the walled stables in the courtyard

    Enjoy roaring fires with tarot card readings speaking of your destiny in the stars, engage yourself with interactive performances, face painting, food, live music and frighteningly good company.

    This evening takes place in a large beautiful country house in Kells, just 45 mins drive from Dublin city centre. Constructed in 1760 these walls certainly have stories to tell, in 2004 the house was selected by the World Monuments Fund (WMF) for inclusion in its List of 100 Most Endangered Sites. It is currently a home to 60 students as a transformed boarding school.

    Taking inspiration from one of the most famous female writers of our time Angela Carter, we hope to bring her haunting and often seductive fairytales to life, each stage and our interactive performances will take inspiration from some of her most popular works, the bloody chamber, the lady of the house of love, the company of wolves.

    Dance by candle light to faceless strangers, immerse yourself in the haunting beauty of this grand estate, hand in hand embrace the dark cold autumn nights with us.

    Omar Souleyman – To Syria with Love Out Now

    New 2017 album release from Syrian musician Omar Souleyman. To Syria, With Love, is the follow up to 2015’s Bahdeni Nami. To Syria, With Love is a departure musically and lyrically from his previous material, with focus on more elaborate keyboard and techno elements. Completely setting politics aside, Souleyman consciously shares this personal ode to his native country with an emphasis on his emotional connection to the land and people but not without heartache in view of the nation’s current state. “It’s been six years I’ve been away, and I’m tired of looking for home and asking about my loved ones. My soul is wounded and it’s like having dust in my eyes,” Souleyman says.
