These are undoubtedly strange times that we’re living in. Everywhere is set to close at 10pm for heaven’s sake – how weird is that going to be?!
So it seems that COVID-19 is like a Gremlin – packed with obscure and contradictory rules that don’t make any sense – and quite why the virus has an affinity for 10pm in the evening I don’t know. What will happen when the clocks go back?!
Anyway, as a result of this madness, venues and promoters have adapted, changed and evolved, and so we have this – the first ever socially distanced La Discothèque ever, taking place this Sunday 27th September from 2pm to 10pm.
Usually held at the Albert Hall from 11pm until around 4am, this will be a very different La Discothèque than you’re probably use to – but it still promises to be fucking brilliant, with a star-studded line up featuring Mancunian legend Mr Scruff, Norman Jay MBE, DJ Paulette, Pharaoh Brunson and Joy Social back-to-back with Sharples.
There will, of course, also be the usual La Discothèque glitz and glamour – with their fabulous flamingos, queens and soul sergeants keeping you bobbing away into the evening.
The show must go on as they say – and if the show is this good – we don’t want it to stop.
La Discothèque @ Social Avenue
Date: Sunday 27th September
Time: 2pm – 1pm
