Good Saturday? Tevo Howard played an incredible vinyl set the last time he was in Dublin. This time around it’s an analogue setup, he’ll be in Pygmalion tonight. Hunee is nearly a Dublin regular at this stage but we’re certainly not complaining. He’s back again with Discotekken for what’ll be a fun night in the The Sugar Club. Check out his mix from Trouw above if you’re not familiar. Flipside … Read More

Ushering In The End.

In Blog, Film, Uncategorized by MogLeave a Comment

The Screen Cinema on D’Olier street closed on Monday, after more than 30 years in operation. The cinema, known for showing international and cult films, will be sorely missed, as will the squat little statue out front which was uprooted a week before the cinema closed. Mr.Screen, a statue of a cinema usher was created in 1988 by artist Vincent Browne (no, not #vinb, this guy). Much loved by regulars … Read More

Except these cards were metaphorical and musical and they pointed towards a somewhat frightening but awesome future. In fairness, they had two very strong records … Read More

Grindhouse Guv?

In Blog, Film by MogLeave a Comment

  Grindhouse Dublin are back this Friday the 26th with 1988 gem Red Heat. The first American feature film allowed to shoot in Red Square, this is far from any kind of historic or articulate document. This is a film entirely driven by crude stereotypes, and well, Arnold Scwarzeneggar. In the first 5 minutes alone you’ll see muscles, nudity, fisticuffs, Arnie in a thong and Lenin and Marx themselves. You … Read More
