Friday Fun for the GAZE film Festival
If you've been knocking around Dublin at all recently you've probably caught the ads for the Gaze film festival. It's another knockout line up and I'm definitely looking forward to catching a few films at the festival. Not least the Stonewall documentary which sounds amazing. Check out the full line up at www.gaze.ie.
Before that there's a rather amazing shindig to be had at the Academy tomorrow night. Curated by Aine Macken (Who let's face it is a bit of a ride aswell as painter of great talent!), she's wangled a line up of great DJs from across town to play. And yours truly!
So expect tunes from DJ's Swish It Up (regulars at Cake, one of the best lesbian club nights in town), myself (tunes smith for The Beauty Spot obviously), Ian Finnerty of supersuperdisco, Una Mullally of Soundcheck and the School of Let's Give A Conor A Go At DJing, Sure What's The Worst That Can Happen? Peter Fingleton, photographer and promoter of nights such as C U Next Tuesday, Ait Ait and many more , Sean John of new indie gay night R.I.P, Miss Macken herself and not forgetting the brilliant Mimi Rouge of Partie Monster.
The night is movie themed too so expect film tunes alongside a seperate area for performances. I'm not saying anything but I may have had my arm twisted to do a number or two in there while playing lots of Britney tunes. The scrapes I get myself into! Good god.
Find out more here and don't forget that the Gaze festvial runs in the Lighthouse Cinema until Monday! And don't miss Aine and Peter putting their own spin on the night. You won't want to miss Aine Macken's photo selection. Priceless!
