... sadly, the last ever ‘Nu Killa Beats’ Drum & Bass night will be on Saturday March 6th at the Underground, Baker Place. Comfortably the longest running club night in Limerick there have been some legendary nights over the last 10 years since the first gig at the Dog House (now The Cornstore) on Thomas St in February 2000. It was the first dedicated night for Drum & Bass in Limerick and brought a style of music to the attention of clubbers who had previously been unaware of it’s existence.
Over the years the night won a hardcore following and even attracted visitors from other towns and cities across the country as well as the UK. Local Dj’s have been the mainstay of the night but there have been many guest Dj’s and performers from around the country as well as abroad.
The promoters, better known as the ‘Nu Killa Kru’ are determined that the last night will a celebration more than anything else and will be signing off in style with all the resident Dj’s pencilled in for one last knees-up! Local Dj’s Code, Bee, Roller T, Deep Cut, Mecca, Lymer, Cain and Leon will be joined by Waterford’s Iree MC for the special occasion.
SATURDAY - MARCH 6th @ the Underground, Baker Place, Limerick
