Dublin's newest venue kicked off proceedings spectacularly, with a headline set from Kormac.
Incredible sets from Kormac, Booka Brass and Spacevolk on Friday night have conclusively confirmed that Lost Lane is one of the top spots for live music in Dublin. The brand new venue, situated off Grafton Street in the space formerly occupied by Lillie's Bordello, is placing a strong emphasis on celebrating the very best of established and emerging Irish talent - with shows featuring Wyvern Lingo, Ships, Katie Kim, Delorentos, David Kitt, Zaska and much more lined up over the coming months.
When the opening of Lost Lane was announced back in March, it came as much welcomed news to those disappointed by the closure of Lillie's Bordello in January. The iconic nightclub was just one in a string of recent closures, which also included the likes of Tivoli, the Wright Venue and Hangar.
After a press launch the night before, Friday marked the first time the doors of Lost Lane were officially opened to the public. Decked out with chandeliers and eccentric touches, the gorgeous space began filling up for Spacevolk, an energetic band whose genre-defying performance included covers of Bill Wither's 'Use Me' and Notorious B.I.G's 'Juicy'. A set from the ever-talented Booka Brass also raised the spirits of the room with their irresistible grooves and seriously impressive chops.
Headliner Kormac brought the crowd to attention with his spellbinding, cinematic sound. Mesmerising projections providing the backdrop to his impressive set, which was packed with the Dublin DJ's natural charisma. Members of Booka Brass also joined Kormac on stage during the show, adding an exciting new dimension to his electronic sound, and demonstrating the versatility of Ireland's thriving music scene.
Expectations for Lost Lane were high, but the venue safely lived up to the hype. The party continues tonight with the Turning Pirate Lost Lane Mix Tape, featuring Niamh Farrell of HamsandwicH, Cathy Davey and some surprise special guests. See lostlane.ie for more.
