IT is the end of an era as the team behind popular Limerick club collective Macronite hang up their headphones.

After marking a third birthday recently, Macronite - at least in its form as a monthly club night - is no more.

Instead, the collective marks a move into releasing music and running “three to four big gigs a year”, with the last regular night to take place this Sunday in Dolan’s.

Macronite has welcomed a bastion of high profile names from the electronic world over the last three years, including Surgeon, Marcel Fengler and PERC, but are now focussing on “putting out quality electronic music on wax”, according to Dan Sykes, who promises that Macronite is really “just getting started”.

Warren Knowles and a huge cast of local DJs/producers will play this Sunday night in Dolan’s to mark the night’s passing. Doors 7pm, tickets €10/8.
