Goldie at the Savoy
Goldie played at the Savoy last Friday, it was the night after the Bodega closing party so I was a bit wrecked and taken completely off guard when one of the door staff shouted after me and wryly told me not to be dancing on tables that evening... different venue, small town, same door staff. :-)
I was too late to see Tone Control playing their support gig and I only caught the end of Source’s warm up set but at least I made it in time for the main man. Sadly, I am a complete drum and bass addict and spent the best part of two hours gracing the floor with my fantabulous moves. Well, someone has to show these young people how to dance proper. On the other hand, I’m getting too old for this and my knees can only take so much punishment. :-)
Goldie played a nice set that went down well with the crowd but I was half deaf by the end of the night, too much bass is bad for you it seems. Anyway, why worry, DJ Deep was probably going to wreck the other half of my hearing the following night, so what the heck!
(Thanks to Pat de Butcher for the fantastic photos.)
UPDATE: If you're into drum and bass, be sure to check out the next Impact night at An Cruiscín Lán on Saturday 3rd March, check out the cool poster below. Gearoid (FiCTiON) and his buddies do a fantastic job in organising the Impact nights and truly deserve tons of support and respect.
I heard he has a bit of a cleft palette lisp, so was wondering at that proximity

I dunno if i personally would want to be associated with a drug dealer mind you.
I heard he deals 24 carat ecstacy.
Sounds like you had a fab night.
