Fresh from the Irish premiere of his new film “Seperado” screened in the IFI earlier that day Welsh renaissance man GRUFF RHYS (Super Furry Animals / Neon Neon) will take to the stage for a DJ set.

GRUFF will be joined by ANDY VOTEL. Andy is a producer, label head, event curator and a pal of Badly Drawn Boy, with whom he founded the Twisted Nerve imprint in 1997—but, above all, the Englishman is one of the best mix-CD mavens out there. Affiliated with the Finders Keepers label and B-Music (which also counts David Holmes among its founders). He is no stranger to Ireland having played here a number of times and even signed Dublin outfit ‘Twin Kranes’ to his label.

B-MUSIC will be taking over a full room to offload their unearthly delights. For the uninitiated in their words “they are an independent collective of DJs, musicians and music lovers dedicated to the obsessive and painstaking pursual of obscure, obsolete, exquisitely obnoxious, unbelievable, underexposed and undeniably delectable discs of experimental pop music from the psyched-out sixties and seventies.”

The SYNTH EASTWOOD Band haven’t been allowed an outing since Electric Picnic and we’ve been tuning our Oboes all week for a Halloween Monster mash. You can here our previous sets here.

FANCY DRESS is essential and in the name of Darklight festival
the theme is “Horror Movie”
