The 2009 Dublin Electronic Arts Festival takes place in venues around Dublin from Thursday October 22nd until Saturday October 31st. To help it get underway, the DEAF crew have organised a fundraiser event in Meeting House Square in the heart of Temple Bar tomorrow night (August 21st for those of you on a different time line). If it's the weather you are worried about then no need, as a marquee style tent shall provide adequate shelter against the elements and if that's not to your satisfaction then you can indulge in the bar and restaurant set up in the square.
It kicks off at 6 bells and is tickets are a steal at €10.00. The line up is the best of Irish and the running order is as follows:
6.30pm Patrick Kelleher & His Cold Dead Hands
7.20pm Channel One
8.15pm Thread Pulls
9.00pm The Jimmy Cake
10.30pm Dark Room Notes
11.30 Spilly Walker

Also this years line up has just been announced and I must admit it's pretty excellent.
