Tonie Walsh is Selling All His Records

Dates: 21 Mar - 21 Mar

Show Time: 12-3

Tickets: €FREE - € Early access ticket (11am) - €15

Forty years after his first DJ gig at legendary gay club Flikkers, Tonie Walsh is selling his vinyl record collection. Thousands of 12” singles and albums (many first editions and rarities) lay bare one of the longest and much lauded DJ careers in Ireland.

As a DJ and club promoter, Tonie’s been responsible for or involved in some of the most outrageous and challenging club nights and events that Ireland has ever seen, notably Horny Organ Tribe, Shaft, Sides, Telefunkin (Cork), the fetish club GAG, H.A.M., Powderbubble and the mid-90’s cult event that was Elevator at Dublin’s Ormond Multimedia Centre. Along the way, there have been beach parties, illegal raves in remote parts of the country, manor house shindigs, and ridiculous slumming at his legendary party gaff in Dublin’s Parnell Street.

Now it’s time to offload and share these sonic riches (and the memories contained within) with a new generation. Expect some choice stories and summoning of ghosts at this once-in-a-lifetime pop-up art market as Tonie is joined on the day by his cherished DJ friends Aoife Nic Canna, Billy Scurry, Galway’s Pádraig Disconaut, Stephen Manning, Mark Kelly and Brian Cuddy. With classy mixes throughout.

Accompanying the pop-up art market will be a sample of Tonie’s extensive club flyer and poster collection spanning the period 1979-2019. The collection of late 20th-century pop cultural signifiers is due to be transferred to a national cultural institution in early Spring 2020.

Company Philip Connaughton presents MAMAFESTA MEMORIALISING (To not forget or be forgotten)

This month critically acclaimed choreographer Philip Connaughton brings his beautiful, sparkling, laugh-out-loud meditation on the fear of forgetting and of being forgotten to Cork and Dublin venues. Mamafesta Memorialising, which enjoyed its successful international premiere in France last year, is woven from inspirations including musical theatre, Bruce Forsythe’s Generation Game and most importantly, Philip’s mum Madeleine, who has senile dementia. Philip made his last piece, Assisted Solo, about her. But it wasn’t enough. He still has more to do and more to say. He’s worried that what’s happening to her will happen to him. His latest testimony to an ever-evolving,…
