DESA | Gig Night

DESA | Gig Night

“If music be the food of love, play on” – Twelfth Night, William Shakespeare.

As we move on forward leaving the dust and angst of the first semester behind us, we journey on to another semester. To celebrate our survival of four months of intense poetry and prose DESA asks you to join us in a night of music and good company at the Thirsty Barber.

Travel back in time with us as we all take a lavish drink in the glamorous days of prohibition to the tunes of Owen Desira, STEW, and James Mifsud. Besides, what better way is there to celebrate than to drink, chat, appreciate the arts, and wreak a little havoc?

Entrance fee: €5
