For the uninitiated, Pitter Patter Nights is the brainchild of everyone's favourite booking machine Keith Hamilton, created in 2004 to welcome musical diversity and showcase the areas brightest young indie upstarts. O'Grady's became Pitter Patter central. In 2005, Hamilton launched the new website (which provides up-to-date show listings) and found new homes at the Boat and the Supermarket (so many venue-name puns could be made here, yet I will refrain). Recently dance parties have been added, rocking the Boat (ouch, there's that pun I tried not to make) most Fridays and Saturdays.

Bands looking to take part in future Pitter Patter Nights can email Keith (see contact info on their site).
