January 26th marked two years since the curtain came down on the Tivoli Theatre, a venue that had been entertaining Irish crowds of all ages since the mid 1930’s.
The venue had seen some memorable nights down the years trading as District 8, most recently with the likes of Bicep, Alan Fitzpatrick, Jeff Mills, DeadMau5, Ejeca, Patrick Topping, KETTAMA, Ben Klock & Amelie Lens to name but a few, not to mention various live bands and even WWF wrestling in the famous venue.
The final night was, as you’d expect was awash with District 8 International favourites, local heroes and let’s be honest, Irish dance music royalty in Sunil Shape, Jon Hussey and DeFeKT, as the curtain came down on one of the countries last and oldest venues.
But today, we listen back to the final moments of the venues dance music history, as Irish techno heroes Sunil Sharpe and Jon Hussy provide the last hours of recorded music from the famous venue in the heart of District 8.
Sunil Sharpe – Main room.
