Mother, the club night that this year hosted the biggest Pride party in Ireland and the hugely successful LGBT+ festival, Love Sensation, is moving its weekly club night residency to Dublin’s most eclectic new venue, Lost Lane.
Launching on Saturday, November 16, Mother will kick off its weekly residency at Lost Lane with Mother DJs & special guests.
Following a one-off Halloween club night on the October Bank Holiday (MOTHER presents: Lost Souls @ Lost Lane), Lost Lane is delighted to welcome Mother to the venue, joining current club night curators Nialler9, Hidden Agenda and Sally Cinnamon.
Lost Lane is Dublin’s most eclectic live music and dance venue, operating with a firm focus on Ireland’s music community, emerging talent and the vitality of nightlife as culture in our city. The venue boasts sound design tuned to the building by Abe Scheele, custom-built Toby Hachett speakers, a bountiful bar and plenty of outdoor areas to take a break from the dance floor.
Úna Molloy, head music booker at Lost Lane, says: “I could not be more excited about this announcement. At a time when Dublin needs its cultural identity protected, needs new homes for its great diversity and for people to enjoy a high-quality experience, from the sound system to the tasty drinks selection, we are so lucky to be able to welcome Mother into the Lost Lane family. The last few months have seen us build strong club night relationships with Hidden Agenda, Nialler9, Sally Cinnamon and Donal Dineen amongst others, to programme a wide range of incredibly special club nights. Adding Mother to our weekly listings could not be more perfect symbiosis and we look forward to Mother and their crew and clubbers enjoying the space and making it their own. See you on the dance floor!”
Mother Promotor Cormac Cashman says: “We’re really excited to launch a new queer club space in the city centre, and we really love what Lost Lane has to offer Mother in this next exciting chapter of our journey. With our bigger events growing annually, we’re delighted to move to a purpose-built new space.”
Lisa Connell, Managing Editor of GCN and co-organiser of Mother said: “With event locations and clubbing spaces in our city being increasingly squeezed out and closed to make way for hotels and student accommodation, we’re really delighted to be moving to a venue that takes nightlife culture as seriously as we do at Mother. Particularly, the need for safe and accepting queer spaces which is the beating heart of why we do what we do since day one.”
The Mother DJs continue: “We’re incredibly excited to be taking Mother to Lost Lane every Saturday, a venue with one of the best sound systems in the country. Having access to a full stage setup now gives us the ability to add some of our our favourite live acts to our club shows too. As we head towards our 10th year together we can’t wait to share a fresh new Mother experience with the whole LGBTQIA+ community.”
The Mother family will be christening this new queer space on Saturday, November 16 from 11 pm. Tickets as always with their weekly club will be available on the door at Lost Lane, located on Adam’s Court, just off Grafton Street.
