Following a series of one off events over the summer, Mr. Jones returns to a weekly Thursday night in a venue our big sister Bodytonic has just taken over, Twisted Pepper (formerly Traffic) on 54 Middle Abbey Street, just a couple of doors down from The Academy. Launchnight is this Thursday 2nd October with old friends Shortie, Scutchie and Mark Lam at the controls.
Where have we been? What have we been doing? After heading off on a J1 for a month Mr. Jones returned and hosted one off parties at The Bernard Shaw, Clampdown in Andrews Lane and Tetric in the Button Factory. We've been off at Glastonbury and Electric Picnic making loads of new friends, and some of them will be collaborating with us for monthly parties in the new venue.Mr. Jones @ Twisted Pepper will run over 2 floors, ground floor will be a bit of a mixed bag of outside promoters, live acts, collaborators and kitchen sinks.
We'll be doing monthly parties with Right On!, Crafty Beggars and I Got Your Fashion Right Here. Each collaborator will bring a different sound, angle and vibe to the night.Downstairs, we'll be keeping the same bassline / baltimore / electro / party vibe that we've had in our ten months of existance. Residents are Shortie, Scutchie and Mark Lam. Their northside roots should serve them well in our relocation. Occasional visitors from Dublin and beyond will also be playing, we have the following guests lined up for the rest of the year (and a couple of others TBC):
13 NOV - FAKE BLOOD
27 NOV - SWITCH (Dubsided, UK)
04 DEC - JOKERS OF THE SCENE
We also have a very drunken drinks deal of vodka & redbull for €3, and selected other drinks deals too. Doors are 10pm and admission to Mr. Jones is €8 / €5 with flyer (this may vary on guest nights).The Twisted Pepper's walls are still drying, but the place has been given a facelift, several licks of paint, and fitted with a brand new dj booth and Funktion 1 soundsystem. Upstairs will be ready to go in a few weeks, but for now phase one of opening sees the downstairs part of the club open. We're looking forward to getting the party started this Thursday
