Seven Quarters is an exciting new club night that returns for the third installment of four on Saturday September 13th to Whelan’s of Wexford Street, as part of the venue celebrating its 25th anniversary. The first two club nights featured some of Ireland's most exciting live acts including Katie Kim, Jennifer Evans, Patrick Kelleher and Magic Pockets.
We are very excited to announce the line up for the third club which sees the wonderfully charismatic Halves honouring us with their last Irish show of the year and the critically acclaimed experimentalists TWINKRANES taking to the stage. There is limited advance tickets on sale for only 10 euro (including booking fee) which also includes a limited edition vinyl available here.
Seven Quarters is different from any other club night happening in Ireland, as we will be giving punters a different limited edition seven inch vinyl, featuring previously unreleased tracks, from the artists performing each club night. This seven inch vinyl will be given away for free to the first 150 people in the door as part of the club entry or to those who purchase one of our advance tickets.
Seven Quarters is a project by Barry Lennon (Richter Collective,Community Of Independents and Hands Up Who Wants To Die) which is set to feature some of the most exciting acts in the Irish music scene and speaking about the next club night he says, “It is great to have had two very successful clubs so far and to have the honour of working with some of Irelands best acts. I am very excitied to see Halves play their last show of the year as part of our next club as well as TWINKRANES, who have been blowing away audiences with their live performances lately”.
The name of the club Seven Quarters is based on the idea of the word seven referring to a 7” inch vinyl and the Quarters part is based on the fact the club will happen four times a year.
