A series of hybrid live and livestream gigs will take place across five nights in September at Drop Dead Twice. The events will strictly adhere to all HSE guidelines and have been given the go-ahead by the relevant authorities.

These hybrid gigs will be lightly attended (40 people) and each show will be professionally live streamed using a multi-camera set-up, bringing the live experience to viewers at home.

Artists playing the shows include Dublin rap legend Lethal Dialect, JYellowL Bicurious, Blackbird and Crow, Modern Love, Vernon Jane and Vulpynes.

‘Laters with Griff…’ will be hosted in a table-service only environment by David Griffin (A.K.A. Griff), best-known as one of the founders of Knockanstockan and the frontman of Dublin band New Secret Weapon. Griff has been putting on shows for most of his life and wants to use this opportunity to draw attention to the importance of restoring the capacity for skilled technicians and artists to do their jobs in safe and controlled environments.

“The motives behind producing this series of shows is to begin a narrative to restore the capacity for skilled technicians and artists to engage in their vocations in a safe and controlled environment within the regulations and parameters set out by our health officials and Government,” he says. “As well as moving towards providing income for our decimated entertainment industry. We, along with so many people in the music and live events industries, are constantly innovating in this ever-changing climate that seems to move its goal posts every time we take a shot at restoration of the arts community. Laters with Griff… will be co-hosted by actor, poet and spoken word artist Emmet O’Brien.

Tickets for each act will be sold separately and strictly limited 40 to per sitting.

Attendees are kindly requested to arrive at their scheduled time, as admittance to the venue will not be possible until then.

There will be a one way system in place for entering and exiting the venue.

Covid tracing measures and hygiene kits on each table.

“Not only is the safety of staff and customers of utmost importance to us, but so is the opportunity we have to show that live music can be enjoyed responsibly and without breaking the law or putting anyone’s health at risk,” says Griff.
