Plugd/Gulpd to close...for now

Plugd and Gulpd to close its doors at Triskel...

Six years on from Plugd Records and Gulpd Café's opening at Triskel Arts Centre, Cork's favourite record shop/café/venue/arts space/meet-up spot will bring to an end its existence on Tobin Street. From Ryley Walker and Clang Sayne recently to Circuit des Yeux and Cal Folger Day not so long ago, there have been some special nights - and beers - shared in what we all believed to be Cork's true safe haven but it's all a bit emotional to comment right now. Expect a whole slew of gigs and happenings over the next few weeks as the Plugd and Gulpd crew see out the current lease how they know best, with a big party. The official word is below:

"we are closing the doors on our tobin street adventure at the end of the month. After six years here, it has been a difficult decision to make but we feel it is the right one at this time. We have taken things as far as we can with our current set up and location.

It’s been quite a ride… from hawking vinyl with albert, to bangin out coffees with the crew, learning so much about food from our amazing chefs and suppliers, working with incredible musicians and artists from near and far. None of this would have been possible without the support of everyone who came through the doors since 2011. Thanks everyone! And a special thanks to all the people who worked here the last six years – too many to mention - you all made the place what it is today. Thanks also to the Triskel for inviting us in and we wish them well in the future. Now more than ever Cork needs a vibrant, welcoming space for Cork’s arts community, and I hope Triskel becomes that.
This isn’t a goodbye… We will be back in some form or another in the future. But for now we are taking some time off to regroup and come back better! Keep an eye out for some pop up action in the meantime ;)

The good news is the (long) farewell party - we have a lot of special events lined up until the end of the month.. It would be great if you could join us over the next few weeks
thanks for the memories
much love xxx"
