If you were one of the macabre merrymakers in attendance at TripALady’s Hallowe’en soiree, you’ll know the musical score: throngs of happy people cutting serious rugs to the sounds of a band who have pillaged the provender of pop radio stations far away in time and wed them to the delights of Irish dance tunes from even further, to conjure temporary but profound epicenters of Eighties dance bliss.
But shadowy capes, flaming red hair, Ringo’s moustache and dedicated Smurf support will all be shed this December 31st in favour of an eager eye to the arrival of the midnight hour, when revellers will, with fortune smiling, pause to gather breath and welcome 2013 with a roar! What won’t change is the furious fiddle-fired footwork that will resume immediately following. This will be TripALady’s fifth New Year’s celebration, and it kicks off at nine p.m.
