Free tonight?

The launch of Lost Lane – Dublin’s new state-of-the-art music venue and night club on the site of the former legendary celeb haunt Lillie’s Bordello, beside Porterhouse Central off Grafton Street.

The inaugural gig is headlined by multi-talented Choice Prize nominee Kormac, aka producer/DJ/musician Cormac O’Halloran.

Later on at 11pm, there’s a free club night called ‘Spacer’, with key music blogger, influencer and journalist Nialler9 behind the decks, spinning electronica, disco and euphoric ‘80s sounds alongside Cian O’Ciobhain.

Nick says: Stop crying at the memory of overpriced Twister Screwdrivers and oversized stilettos – Lillie’s is dead; long live Lost Lane!

Hangar?

District 8?

He kept his yokes down under,

For personal use.

Via The Sydney Morning Herald:

An Irish tourist found with 10 MDMA capsules at a Parramatta music festival on Sunday has escaped conviction after he argued the party drug is “not strong enough” in Australia and all of the pills were for his personal use.

David Crean, 32, was arrested at the Ultra Music festival and charged with supplying a prohibited drug after a sniffer dog sat down next to him when he entered Parramatta Park at about 1.45pm.

According to police facts, Mr Crean – who is in Australia on a two-week holiday – was “nervous” and “visibly shaking” when he was spoken to by police, and when an officer asked “be honest, do you have any drugs on you?”, he admitted he had drugs in his underwear.

Mr Crean told police he “did not intend on selling the capsules and planned on consuming all of them himself as the purity of MDMA in Australia is not strong enough”, the facts state.

In fairness.

Fun-loving ‘revellers’ in The Turk’s Head , Temple Bar, Dublin last night.

Tramps like us.

Baby we were born to gurn.

When we arrive, the basement is swarming with sweaty, glassy-eyed revellers asking for water. The party has spilled out onto the street, and people I recognise from school and college and Twitter have joined together to share the synthetic joy. Because it’s Dublin, everyone knows each other and is feeling particularly tactile; it’s hard to get up the stairs without being taken down by hugs.

The scaldy guys selling pills at the back of the club are even scaldier tonight, smiling through firmly clenched teeth, their eyes half open under bucket hats. They add to the illusion that we’ve all stumbled into some PLUR-filled, retrograde acid rave universe, a homage to a time we were too young to remember…..
