The freezing cold and the threat of Friday the 13th nightlife didn’t keep punters from heading to The Rosemount for Brow Horn Orchestra’s EP launch, and the place was well and truly warming up before the first act even began.

I’ve always associated Geisha Bar with crushing disappointment for two reasons; I blew off seeing Broadcast at The Bakery for someone’s 18th there a few weeks before Trish Keenan (RIP) died, and I also drank my weight in vodka and cranberry that night, to severe ramifications. This is likely to change though, as Geisha is being opened up for live music through the Innerspace series of themed gigs. Mink Mussel Creek apparently blew the top off things there last week, so the first electronic night had a bit to live up to. As to the venue, Geisha is permanently shrouded in darkness and smoke which can be a drag, but I like the place for shows; there’s a nice space to dance in, room for people to sit near the stage, and room round the corner to get away from things. The sound seemed a little bass heavy, but maybe I’m insane.
