The Return Of Live Music To The Dublin Castle And Beyond...

Greetings! New dates we can actually tell you are actually happening with actual tickets available and actual living breathing musicians playing for your delight and delectation on Bugbear honed stages this Autumn…

The Water Rats, Kings X
Fri 8 October
Roddy Radiation And The Skabilly Rebels+Steve Hooker Stripped Down Stompin Band+DJ Marc Griffith

Roddy Radiation And The Skabilly Rebels – The guitarist and frontline songwriter in The Specials returns with his infectious blend of punk, ska , reggae and rockabilly, wonderful stuff, and always a pleasure to see, and in the Water Rats for a change, not the Dublin Castle where we usually present Roddy rocking out and is kind of as much his spiritual home as the Sainted Madness. So where better for a change of scene than The Rats, coz as ya know, we’re all working for the Rat Race. Boom and indeed boom. And yes he does still play material from The Specials. Not half. Steve Hooker – super charged dirty Essex Delta rocknroll trio fronted by long standing guitar guru Mr Hooker, a powerhouse who get a reet good and grinding riffology going and take it to the dancefloor with a sleazy Link Wray twang and a bulbous Bo Diddley beat…damn good. Marc Griffith DJ – Living handily in the vicinity of the aforementioned Dublin Castle hasn’t done DJ Marc’s dayjob as bespoke tailor to the stars (including Les Garcons Nutty and our Rod) hasn’t done his impeccable taste for ska, reggae, soul and rock and roll any harm either. A gent of the decks who will supply some fabulous sounds between and after the live sets tonight.

The Dublin Castle, Camden Town
