It's party time at The Pavilion next Friday night for the first Go Deep outing of 2012. We have so much great new music to play that we're starting a bit earlier than usual - 10PM - to fit it all in. Can't wait. To sweeten the deal further, you can win some passes in the competition running over on our Facebook page...
Only ten more sleeps until our biggest blowout of the year - the Go Deep Birthday Party (TM) - and we hope you're as excited as we are. We've already begun the annual trawl through the record shelves, looking for just the right mix of classics from two-and-a-bit decades of house music. Despite what a few jaded thirty/forty-somethings may yearn for, the birthday party isn't intended as a mix-perfect recreation of June 1992 - y'know when they still made good house/techno/yokes. We like to think of it more as a celebration of the entire span and enduring appeal of house music in Cork. And everyone who enjoys the music is welcome, from the twenty year old who's recently discovered house to grizzled veterans like us who, frankly, should know better! Can't wait.
We've recently hooked up with those fine folk at JoJo Electro to bring you a couple of all-new and exclusive tee shirt designs. Printed on high quality American Apparel tees and available for both the female and male of your species, these Fish Go Deep and Go Deep Recordings shirts may be just the thing for your next casual social occasion/upcoming birthday/festive celebration. Get them here.
We like regular weekends a lot so you can imagine how excited we get when a long one comes around. What's not to like about 50% more weekend? This particular October bank holiday sees a Fish Go Deep sweep from Glasgow's Elements of Soul party on Friday night, to Cork City FC's league title-deciding match in Dublin on Saturday, then on to what promises to be an epic Go Deep session on Sunday in Cork's Pavilion Theatre. Can't wait. Hope to see some of you at some stage.
After a storming September Go Deep party (great turnout and vibe - thanks to all who came along), we're back in the lovely Pavilion Theatre for an extra-niiice Cork Jazz Festival special on bank holiday Sunday, October 30th. That weekend is always one of the busiest of the year here in Cork so do get down early.
Before all that madness, we're back on the road over the next few weeks, taking in trips to Amsterdam, Porto, Ankara and Glasgow. The first of those is a tasty looking evening at the Amsterdam Dance Event, where Greg will be playing with Andre Lodemann, Roy Davis Jr, Alton Miller, Andy Roberts and more as part of the Mixed Signals Music label showcase. Should be a blast. More details here. And further info on those other dates next week.
