Breakcore gigs are the best gigs in the world. FACT. They are the most fun, the most mental and without trying to sound like a hippy, bring a sense of community unrivalled by most other gigs I’ve been too. Anyone who was at the Ice Bar in Dublin last month for Aaron Spectre and Lakker or Shitmat in the Rowing Club in Galway last year can attest to that. Having said, that like everything, it is only good in moderation. I imagine it can lose its appeal for most people if it was a weekly thing unless you’re the breakcore / mashup artist playing at these gigs and in that case you’re a bit of a mentaller anyway.
This month, UK label Wrong Music are doing a short breakcore tour of Ireland entitled ‘The Leprechaun Error Tour’ in association with Leechrum with artists Shitmat, Chevron, Ebola, Lakker, The Gross Consumer and a load of others.
