Twenty Major! Naomi Klein! David McWilliams! A Sinn Fein councillor who used to be indie rock’s answer to Louis Walsh but he’s OK now! Clint Velour! IN THE SAME ROOM! I mean, what more do you want on a Friday night?adimagephp.jpg

The return of Leviathan to the big smoke after some high jinks in Co Laois sees Maccer talking shop with Klein about her (very good) new book “The Shock Doctrine”.

Then, there’s the debate. Talking with great intelligence and insight about the topic, “Romantic Ireland’s dead and gone” will be everyone’s favourite chain-smoking bad-ass with a typewriter Twenty, the excellent Sarah Carey, Killian Forde (Killian would be a MEP now had the people of Dublin Central took Mary-Lou as their TD but thankfully that latter nightmare scenario didn’t come to pass), John Waters from the paper, Green Party senator Deirdre de Burca and Carol Hunt from The Sunday Independent.

It all goes off at Crawdaddy on Friday from 7.30pm. Tickets are €20 and ham sandwiches with the crusts cut off will be available in the bar. Appropriate security measures are already in place.
