Feeling like a bop to some thrashy italo on a Sunday? You could fare worse than trundling down to this.
The Odessa Club might smack of Celtic Tiger z-celebrity excess, but they’ve downplayed their game in recent years. So, don’t be put off by whatever memories might linger from those horrible days, the place has a class drinking terrace and seems to tolerate more belligerence than before. The cocktails were damn cheap the last time we checked too.
El Capos Forza Italo have a decent track record between them in terms of quality nights, with this Sunday session becoming a highlight on a clubbing scene that sometimes feels like its just chugging for survival. They’ve made a habit of dishing up some top notch film fare before the gigs, with recent furoes into giallo horrors like Don’t Torture A Duckling or screenings of classic Italian footie matches.
We had Kenny Hanlon take a look at italo in Dublin for our second issue, so have a read of that if you are feeling genre muddled. There’s some links and mixes thrown in after the jump for good measure.
