We've had to change venue from our beloved Blue Moon just for October, and our new hosts cannot accommodate us on the 7th, so we've now confirmed for Saturday 14th October! We are extremely grateful to the wonderful folk at the 2648 — its a great venue for a disco and we're determined to make it a big success so it would be great to see you all down there — it will be FREE ENTRY!
Expect the same as always — a gin-fuelled DIY dance party. We'll be playing all our favourite old and new indiepop, DIY pop, post punk, new wave, grrrl and US alternative records to keep you on the dancefloor all night!
Doors open at 8pm, and we'll be going til 1am. Their happy hour runs through til 9pm, so if you're clever…
