Irish Gig of the Week: Sad Night Dynamite

Words: Dylan Murphy

Jack Daniel’s and District share an authentic love for music culture and we thought who better to team up with to celebrate the return of live music. Every week, we’re handpicking the must attend show in the capital, ranging from underground rappers in dimly lit rooms to rising stars on sold out tours.

In a time where our own worlds were forced to shrink to the confines of our living rooms, Josh Greacen and Archie Blagden AKA Sad Night Dynamite worked on engineering a wacky alternate universe of their own.

Growing up in Glastonbury, a town where the world’s escapists gather for an annual pilgrimage, it’s easy to see how otherworldly sounds and fantastical visuals crept into their music. Since bursting onto the scene they’ve found fans in Damon Albarn, worked with IDK, Moonchild Sanelly and stuck their names in ones to watch lists everywhere in the process.

The pair head to Dublin off the back of their 2021 self-titled tape and ahead of what promises to be a busy festival season.

Sad Night Dynamite play The Workman’s Club Friday 18 February, click here for tickets.
