St. Patrick's day is a celebration of Irish culture - but really, it's more than that.
Ireland's recent history has spread it's influence around the globe, with a widespread diaspora taking the nation's identity far from it's homeland. With St. Patrick's Day almost upon us once again, Irish whiskey Jameson are planning on throwing a very special event.
Taking place on March 17th, Jameson will take control of Dublin venues The Academy and The Twisted Pepper. Bombay Bicycle Club are set to perform, with the London group still fresh from last year's epic stand at the Alexandra Palace.
Making their way to Ireland, Bombay Bicycle Club will perform at The Academy alongside hand picked newcomers including Ireland's own Jape and The Cast of Cheers.
t's not just indie, though, with The Twisted Pepper set to boast a serious DJ line up. Erol Alkan will headline, with the one time Trash guru aiming to emphasise why he remains such a pivotal force in club culture.
Surgeon, DJ EZ and Daniel Wang are all set to take part, as St. Patrick's Day stretches long into the night...
As a special treat, Bombay Bicycle Club have recorded a live version of debut album favourite 'Shuffle'. Stripped down into a tender ballad, you can watch it now.
