    DOORS 8PM, ADM £5
    SUPER EXTRA BONUS PARTY[/b:f60b85333d]
    Kildare’s 14-legged whirlwind blasted out of leftfield last year to take the [b:f60b85333d]Choice Music Prize[/b:f60b85333d] for their self-titled debut album, with follow-up Night Horses – featuring hip-hop heavyweights Cadence Weapon and Mr. Lif – on the shelves this month. Their breathless gigs bear comparison to [b:f60b85333d]The Go! Team[/b:f60b85333d] – a riot of noise and colour, the seven members bounding around the stage and forcing a reaction. This is a rare chance to see the band up close and in your face on the Lavery’s stage.

    [b:f60b85333d]SPACE DIMENSION CONTROLLER[/b:f60b85333d]
    Electro cadet Space Dimension Controller (or Mr. 8040, or just Jack) channels a short lifetime immersed in electronica of many stripes, as well as a healthy fetishism of old hardware, to make you party like it’s 1983. His debut album [b:f60b85333d]Unidentified Flying Oscillator[/b:f60b85333d], a free (uh-huh) download from [url]http://www.acroplane.org[/url], shows off the chops he has developed recording all manner of tunes as [b:f60b85333d]RL/VL[/b:f60b85333d], but SDC is an entity all of its own. With a live show full of thudding beats, crisp minimalism, acidic synth lines and even the odd bit of electro-rap, retrofuturism never sounded so good.
    A graduate of the [b:f60b85333d]Red Bull Music Academy[/b:f60b85333d] (like [b:f60b85333d]Hudson Mohawke, Flying Lotus[/b:f60b85333d] and [b:f60b85333d]TRG[/b:f60b85333d] among others) when it hit Toronto in 2007, Belfast’s Connor Dougan is an electronic producer of rare pedigree. Citing influences from [b:f60b85333d]Squarepusher[/b:f60b85333d] and [b:f60b85333d]Boxcutter[/b:f60b85333d] to [b:f60b85333d]Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry[/b:f60b85333d] and [b:f60b85333d]John Coltrane[/b:f60b85333d], as well as those peers mentioned above, his complex, sample-heavy tunes are food for the ears as well as the feet. And with a dazzling live show featuring live keys and turntablism as well as some nifty laptop trickery, he’s soon to be well established among Ireland’s electronic elite.
