Blog For Swinging Children

Wednesday, May 5, 2010

ALSO, Totally Dublin wanted to publish a piece about little old us. The article is in the current issue.

This is like the coolest song I ever heard in my whole life

You were all v. merry on Friday and probably can't remember a JOT what you were having the dance to so here's the general idea. ALSO, while I have your attention, I will be leaving Aine for the month of June (LATERRR) so why not practice putting that extra little oomph in your favourite dance move to make her feel extra loved. She get's very lonely without me. Cuute.

Friday January 22nd 2010

This week we have two people popping their SFSC DJing cherry, coming all the way from Just Outside The City Centre, it's Chloe and Michael. Buy them a drink, ease the nerves like.

Also joining us will be Neil Brennan, fresh from being voted Best DJ by Philip The Barman, and our most regular of regulars, Cait, Laura and Emily.
