Ignored Playaz

Wednesday, March 30th, 2011

Dublin heads are probably already familiar with the Ignored Playaz night, with it having recently played host to Pearson Sound, Actress and Girl Unit amongst others. If not though this Saturday is a prime time to get aquainted as Addison Groove and Jam City headline the Underground at Kennedy’s Bar on Westland Row, promising straight vibes and more 808 than you can shake a stick at.

DONUTS

A huge thankyou to everyone that came down to Donuts on Saturday for the Ashes57 show preview. The turnout was great, Delphine’s work looked stunning and Velour and Baobinga AKA Young Beezy absolutely killed it. A big thankyou also goes to Danielle and Brothers Cider for providing the drinks.

Photos from the evening are up on Flickr now, along with a set from the monster Crazylegs afterparty at Blue Mountain.

Don’t forget the show runs at Donuts until April 15th if you didn’t get a chance to see it on the opening night.

Too Much Posse

Tuesday, March 1st, 2011

Too Much Posse is definitely one of my favourite brands at Donuts.  I have big respect for the way they do their thing quietly, without hyping, and just let the strength of the designs speak for themselves.

This season’s range is nearly ready and includes their trademark photo-based tees and, for the first time, sweatshirts, being printed on classic Champion crews.  Watch out for some preview images after the weekend and the collection dropping at Donuts the following week.
