Throw Away Book Launch & Talk

Club flyers were an integral part of dance music culture and they played a central role in the promotion of Dublin’s dance music scene in the 1990s. Throw Away is not a comprehensive social or musical history of that period, instead, it provides insights into Dublin city’s dance music scene. Across 304 pages, with over 1,100 reproductions, the book reflects the scene’s progression from initial rave phenomenon to mainstream acceptance. Throw Away documents a changing Dublin city, where the dance music scene took hold with a generation of ambitious promoters and venue owners. Almost all of the venues have since been demolished, or have changed use. The flyers contained in this book reflect a Dublin that has largely disappeared.
