The Stars Are Underground – The Grand Social, 29th December

A night to celebrate the independent Irish music of the 90’s, with DJs, live performances & more Performers are still to be confirmed, but Niall McGuirk of Hope Promotions and Paul Shanahan from Blunt Records will be DJing. Daragh McCarthy’s 1996 documentary The Stars Are Underground  – from which the night takes its name – will be screened (silently), as will some contemporaneous music videos.

There will also be a mini-exhibition of gig posters, some of which available for sale with the proceeds going to charity. An open mic “for the songwriters / comedians” will hopefully be policed with fists of steel.

The evening is being organised by Mexican Pat Clafferty (of Mexican Pets fame) and he’s on the look out for people to get involved. More info can be found at
