07/07/12: Dalston Superstore was the place to be as hipster Eastsiders hit the heights for a dazzling Pride night Paris’ Acid Ball last weekend.

Celebrating all things ‘New York, acid, house and vogue with an East London twist’, terrible DJ/promoter trio, Hannah Holland, Squeaky and Dan Beaumont made it a party to remember with two rampaging floors of pumping choons packing in the crowds as a torrential downpour raged outside.

QX Club News battled through the deluge as a riotous mass of crazy clubbers laid siege to one of the capital’s coolest hangouts, with barely enough room to throw a funky move amidst the mash-up.


Highlights saw the heaving downstairs dancefloor moving as one for futuristic house sounds, plus a mind-bending set to come from arch Berliner, DJ Spencer Parker. Upstairs and the mad melee continued with Josh Caffe and Cathal slamming down a soundtrack taking in the latest in fashionable tropical beats and more as the fun-lovin’ East End throng raised the roof through ‘til fashionably late!

Don’t miss the thrills next Saturday as Club Lesley, the brand new night from Twat Boutique, hijacks the ‘store for garage, 90s dance, funk-doom, rave cave and much, much more!
