Secret Wars x OFFSET Battle 2009 (The Low Down)

Team Dublin vs Team OFFSET in The Bernard Shaw

Having introduced the infamous live street art battle to Dublin back in July, Secret Wars picked back up its pens to cause yet another stir in the city. This time round, Secret Wars hosted a very special 3 on 3 battle comprising of Team OFFSET vs. Team Dublin. The event took place in conjunction with the amazing OFFSET weekend in The Bernard Shaw pub and boy was it a night to remember! What can I say- This battle was truly epic in every sense and will be hard to match, especially with the involvement of some super talented artists at this special event. By 8.30pm the crowds came and kept coming until the venue had to call capacity by 10pm! It was another insane night with people queuing outside trying to get in on the action. I believe one guy even climbed the wall at the back of the venue ( um...I wonder what happened to him?!). Inside & outside tunes were banging and the atmosphere in the place was sick. Reeps One also joined in on the buzz and sent the crowd crazy with his amazing beat boxing skills. Team OFFSET pulled in some heavy weights that included THE LONDON POLICE, Serge Seidlitz, Brain Coldrick with guest appearances from Tara McPherson & Brad Downey to lend a hand. The Dublin boys which consisted of Mick Minogue, Steve McCarthy & danleo had it tough! In the end the Dublin boys smashed it putting up a good fight to win over the crowd and judges leaving them victorious 3-0! Go on the Irish!

Big up the amazing OFFSET Team and the organizers of OFFSET for their support!

A thanks goes out to both the DJ's and MC on the night, as well as our sponsors Red Bull & Edding.
Lastly, a massive thanks goes to everyone that showed up and braved the cold to help make this event sick!!
