Along with Shine in Belfast and Freakscene in Cork, Strictly Handbag is one of the veterans on the Irish club scene.

The Monday night hang-out in the capital city for 1980s revivalists and people who don’t have to get up on Tuesday morning marks its 13th birthday with two bashes over the October Bank Holiday weekend.

Kevin Rowland returns for more disco-jockeying on Sunday 28th at Whelan’s, while Will Sergeant from Echo & The Bunnymen spins psychedelia, northern soul and rock’n'roll at the Handbag party at Rí-Rá the following night.
