Lost Lane Good Friday Party with Interskalactic and Attention Bébé double bill
Hailed as “the future of ska in Ireland” (Ryan Tubridy, The Late Late Show), Interskalactic have firmly marked their place as a truly unique favourite on the Irish live music scene. Adding their modern big band style to first-wave, old-school Jamaican ska, Interskalactic have brought this infectious music that first exploded worldwide with celebrations of Jamaican independence in the ‘60s back into the live music scene of today!
Interskalactic know how to keep a dance floor busy. Their upbeat set features not just their own original music – big band ska with that old-school Jamaican flavor, but also covers from classic ska artists including Prince Buster, The Skatalites and Byron Lee & the Dragonaires as well as their own ska-ified versions of popular hits from the last few decades.
Stellar live performances since the band’s formation in 2013 include:
- RTE’s The Late Late Show
- Electric Picnic, Body&Soul, Cork Jazz, Sea Sessions Festivals
- Opening for Madness‘ M.A.D.H.E.A.D. Tour in the 3 Arena Dublin and Odyssey Arena Belfast
- Performances in prestigious venues Vicar Street and Whelan’s and at countless festivals, events, parties and venues all over the country.
With an incredible few years behind them and the release of their debut EP in March 2017, Interskalactic are set to stay on this trajectory throughout the year and beyond!
From the airy but moist chambers of a quaint kitchen in the renowned Portabello, a 12-piece band were born, kicking and screaming with brass in one hand and well wrapped parcels in the other.
Their mission: To spread their love of The Fresh Price, Rollerblades, Double Denim, Zig and Zag and all things 90s via the medium of sound. Funked-up and jazzed-out versions of your favourite 90s classics will leave you no choice but to dance your asses off to their hot stepping, side slapping, parcel passing, groin grinding, roof raising, guaranteed fun times.
If they’re not playing to an overflowing tent in the woods and prairies of Electric Picnic or Another Love Story, then you’ll probably find them bringing the ruckus to one of the many major venues up and down the country…or watching Jurassic Park.
If you’ve got the feeling for some 90s nostalgia, then this is what you want, what you really, really want.
Would I lie to you Bébé?
