Photos: MGMT Afterparty in Spy

The afterparty for the sold-out MGMT show in the Ambassador last night took place in Spy and was hosted by Rock + Roll Rescue Squad and Strictly Handbag.

Support act to MGMT for their Irish dates, Amazing Baby played a 30 minutes live set with Sinead Ni Mhordha DJing in support. In attendance on the night were MGMT, Mercury Rev, Dirty Pretty Things and Har Mar Superstar. Members of MGMT, Har Mar Superstar and Dirty Pretty Things capped the night off with some Karaoke in Ukiyo until after 4am.

The show also marked the end to Strictly Handbag on Monday nights. After 14 years they are packing in the Monday night sessions but will continue to play in TheSugar Club on Friday nights and The Loft on Saturdays.
