Just a little note to say I’ll be performing at the Digital Socket Awards, this Thursday in the 3rd of February in the Grand Social! It’s a new award ceremony celebrating the best in Irish music, with performances from Groom, Meljoann, and Ham Sandwich, and DJ sets from Logikparty and Sweet Oblivion.
Here’s are the details!
A few weeks later, the all-Ireland panel of judges have come to their conclusions and the results will be announced at a special live event in Dublin’s Grand Social venue this Thursday 3rd February. Special guests include comedian Gareth Stack as host along with live music from soulful indie popsters Groom, the funky electronic stylings of Meljoann and a top-secret performance by one of Ireland’s most popular bands. Following on the celebrations are DJ sets, including the daring sounds of new-wave rockers Logikparty and RTE 2XM’s Sweet Oblivion.
Special partners in the event are RTÉ Television who, as part of their new webcast show RED Radar, will present one lucky winner with an extra award in the category of Outstanding Performance in Irish music of 2010. All winners will also be invited to the RED Radar studio to record their songs for a special feature on the Digital Socket Awards.
Doors open at 7:30 pm and the show runs until late. Get there early for top nosh from Boojum Mexican restaurant and there will be special drinks promotions on offer all night. The award announcements get underway with Best EP at 8:15 pm.
