Himself Is A DJ

I've mentioned the boyfriend before and this week his DJ skillz landed him a spot in HotPress Magazines "UP|FRONT: Hot Clubbing" section. The last time I bought HotPress was in 2008 when one of my own illustrations was published (thank you, David Rooney), and last night I bought my second ever copy to support said boyfriend.

AntoNation the driving force behind The Academy's Friday night indie/electro club, NoDisko.

"Together with partner-in-crime Ben, he's thrown awesome after-parties for the likes of Mogwai, The VonBondies, Stereophonics, Red Light Company and The Fratellis, along with all the greatest Irish acts currently making waves. They have even shared the stage (unexpectedly) with the infamous Peaches Geldof, where the pair hosted a packed after-show with Tim Burgess (The Charlatans) on The Academy's main stage.

NoDisko caters to a wide range of musical tastes: from indie classics to flat-out dancefloor bangers. The night recently celebrated it's first birthday and looks well-placed to go from strength to strength in the future."

Top 5 Tunes:

'Gypsy Bum' Lorcan Mak

'Riverside' Sidney Samson

'One More Chance' (Alex Metric mix) Bloc Party

'Little Bit' (AutoErotique mix) Lykke Li

'Waves' Erol Alkan / Boys Noize


Ooh isn't he dreamy. Check out the lovely AntoNation every Friday in The Academy at NoDisko.
