A new night called Sweet Nothings is coming to Drop Dead Twice in the heart of the Liberties, Dublin next month. The night is based on the idea of collaboration, from collaborating with other independent music business in the area, to artists collaborating with each other and the audience on the night.
Brought to you by Carlos O’Connell and in collaboration with Blackwax Records (more about the new record shop on Meath Street), who will hold a pop-up store each night and perform a DJ set of 7″s and 12″s which will also be on sale.
The night is inspired by the scene momentum in New York in the 00s, which birthed the Strokes among others, aiming to create a space where music lovers and the artists themselves will want to come back to.
“A few months ago I got given Lizzy Goodman’s book Meet Me In The Bathroom, and the similarities I found in it with my life in Dublin for the last few years made me think ‘why don’t I just push it a bit more? and try to get some of the amazing artists that Ireland is packed with in the same room, attract music lovers to this room, and make something happen?'” says Carlos.
The first night takes place in Drop Dead Twice, Dublin on Thursday, February 1st. Admission is free.
Artists on the night include:
Gabriel Paschal Black ( For Foresters )
