Following on two very sucessful nights Roots 3 welcomes two guests, Nicolette (Massive Attack, Shut up and Dance and Early records) and Hazo (illdependents) on Friday 28th July in the Limerick Boat Club. They will be joined by the Rootical Soundsystem. Nicolette who flies into Ireland specially for this gig was interviewed in the Limerick Events Guide, where she explained what the crowd could expect:
"I'm gonna be doing some vocals over a dj set. I did a similar gig here (London) which went really well, I had never done anything like it before that, but there was just an amazing energy that I really really enjoyed so when I got this offer I jumped at it. " ( Limerick Events Guide this month page 8 )
A review of this London clubnight- Bash- where she did that similar set referred to her as the 'Nina Simone of Dancehall'. Playing records behind Nicolette will be hazo of the illdependents, one of Irelands most respected producers. Expect an exciting array of styles and plenty of surprises.
All supported on the night by the mighty Rootical Soundsystem who are also gearing up for the big mantua lives festival in August which looks very impressive and a return of visual masters CROWD pour.
And if this wasn't enough we will also be going later than usual. Doors will open at 9.30 as usual and as this is the boat club, Limericks most intimate venue, we are advising that people pick up tickets in advance. Tickets at €12.50 will be on sale in the next few days. If you are interested, check back here for more details or email us. L.E.G called the gig "very exciting....certain to be a summer highlight" and with a number of national newspapers featuring it, interest will be high so don't sleep on it.
Update: Tickets on sale in Empire Music, O'Connell Street 061-317211
