This Friday sees the fifth installment of the Punky Reggae Party. Starting its life in Belfield, the night moved to Seomra Spraoi in December for more room, later opening hours and an enticing BYOB policy. This month sees Traycee up on the decks spinning a classic mix of Jamaican ska and rocksteady and Antrophe selecting his own dancehall reggae favourites. Carax and Jim will be on hand to see that punk, Oi! and mod revival is well represented. Hope to see you there.

Punky Reggae Party Vol. 5.

Saturday sees many of Dublin’s best punk, ska and rockabilly bands come together for a Haiti benefit gig in The Button Factory. I’m particularly looking forward to rockabilly legends Aces Wild and The Clash/Jam cover band Clash Jam Wallop.

Aid For Haiti, Saturday 27th February.

The Button Factory in Dublin has been playing home to fantastic ‘county nights’ now since last year, with several counties including the capital down so far. Guests to date have included Matt Molloy of The Chieftains and ‘THAT pub’ fame and Colin Mac Con Iomaire.

Next Tuesday sees Kildare rise to the Dublin stage. The night, hosted by Luka Bloom, features the likes of Tom Touhy and Noel Heavy, along with the classic Christy Moore.

Tickets are €17.50 and available now from tickets.ie. The three of us from CHTM! made our way to the Dublin night last month and enjoyed every minute of it, so another trip may well be in order….

Doors: 8PM, Show: 9PM
