While Richie Egan now resides in Malmo, Sweden, he’s back to play a special Jape show in Dublin this Saturday night for Nightflight alongside DJ Jay Shepheard and White Collar Boy as part of The Grand Social’s second birthday. If you want tickets to that email firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject JAPE IS GRAPE before midnight Friday along with your phone number and name.
In the meantime, I asked Richie to share with us his current musical favourites…
