Electrifying New Club Night for Sligo
Sligo’s newest and hottest club night TomTom will kick off in the Clarence on Saturday 25th July at 11pm (Admission fee €10, €5 with a Facebook RSVP, doors 11pm).
This eclectic offering, including everything from classic funk and future disco, is eagerly brought to you by two of those responsible for Funk Up. Slightly different from its predecessor (but just as entertaining), the musical focus of TomTom will be a mish-mash of electronic music, disco and funk with snippets of hip-hop and a little bit of indie thrown in for good measure!
TomTom is the culmination of much late-night musical yapping between Karl Conway and Liam Coen who finished doing Funk Up in 2007. They are confident that TomTom can satisfy the cravings of many of Sligo’s music fans who have been missing the “up-beat vibe which really fed into the party atmosphere that made Funk Up special” (Karl Conway).
According to Liam Coen: “the night is going to try to blend the recent past with the up-to-the-second present, putting the likes of James brown alongside James Murphy (LCD Soundsystem) or the Cut Copy boys beside Grace Jones”.
Karl Conway said: “I’m really excited to play in Sligo again and to see what we can do with TomTom. I’m hoping to see some familiar faces throwing shapes.”
