Where were you in the 1990s? The evolution of Dublin nightlife at the tail end of the millennium is the core focus of a new exhibition, taking place at The Bernard Shaw in July: ANALOG RHYTHMS – A Celebration of Dublin Club Culture.
Tracking the development of the capital’s club scene during its formative years, ANALOG RHYTHMS will tell the story of pivotal venues such as Sides DC, Temple of Sound, The Ormond, The Pod, Columbia Mills, The Asylum, Temple Theatre, The Kitchen, System, The Funnel, The Furnace and many more – featuring a massive collection of flyers, photos, clippings, memorabilia… and plenty of tales from the dancefloor.
The exhibition is being curated by award-winning music site 909originals.com, in association with Bodytonic, and will take place on 9 and 10 July at The Bernard Shaw, Cross Guns Bridge, Drumcondra. You can purchase tickets through Eventbrite below.
“The 1990s was a time of cultural awakening in Dublin, which was best represented by the vibrancy of the city’s nightclub industry,” says Steve Wynne-Jones, editor of 909originals.com. “With ANALOG RHYTHMS, we pay tribute to the people and places that helped shape the scene and cement Dublin’s reputation as one of the party capitals of Europe.”
On Saturday 9 July, a series of events are taking place to accompany the Analog Rhythms exhibition, including a panel discussion about Dublin nightlife and a series of DJ performances… including a rare appearance by the legendary DJ Pressure. 🙂
Sunday 10 July will see a vinyl and cassette market take place in the event space, as well as an old school quiz and bingo event. See you there!
In the meantime, here’s a playlist to whet your appetite…
