Sick City charity gig pays its tribute to tragic Colin; ULTIMATE ULSTER.

Byline: BRENDAN McKEOWN; MARK WHYTE

Over the past decade, there's one particular party that has wiggled, giggled and rocked its way into being an unmissable highlight of the Belfast festive calendar.

The annual charity gig at the Empire, this year taking place on Wed Dec 28. The man behind the event, Paddy Taylor, told us more: "Sick City is organised every year to celebrate the life of our friend Colin Magill who tragically died in 2002 in Wildwood, NJ. Since then, we have invited everyone to come down and pay homage to a dear friend with all proceeds on the night going towards OpgafTt2Tol tNe hp the NI Hospice." Last year's gig alone raised well over pounds 1,500 for the charity, and this year we're hoping to exceed that figure."

Kicking off proceedings will be the eclectic sounds of covers band the Callum and Doyle show, playing well known songs and having a bit of banter with the audience. Then it's time for punk-rock outfit The Shakes to take to the stage.

isodisco resident DJ Conor McKenna finishes the night in what is sure to be another fantastic celebration. Admission pounds 5.00 and all proceeds will go to the NI Hospice.
