Friday 17th February: Blocheads

Get your blocs off this Friday, with a night spent down in the East Bloc’s disco basement!  Resident DJs Stevie B and Martyn Fitzgerald always spin a sizzling mix of disco, house and techno that gets those Keith Haring scribbled walls shaking and dripping in sweat. If those walls could talk…well, they probably wouldn’t, they’d stand silently and aloofly at the bar, dressed in black, giving you the eye. And you’d LOVE it.

Blocheads is on Friday 17th February at East Bloc, 217 City Road, EC1V 1JN, 11pm-6am, £5 before 1am, £10 after

 

Friday 17th February: A:M

A:M is the Vauxhall party that goes on for 12 hours, a full half day! It’s such a long time, you could really make the most of it. Why not put some pork in the oven on a low temperature before you go, and then when you get home, you’ll have some lovely pulled pork. #QXCookingTips. Actually, you probably shouldn’t leave the oven on by itself for that long should you. #QXFireSafetyTips. Let’s just focus on A:M, with it’s balls-to-the-walls house and techno from some of the scene’s hottest DJs, all in the company of hundreds of topless, twirling boys. There’s no more hedonistic way to kick off the weekend. #QXPartyTips

A:M is on Friday 17th February at Protocol, 6a South Lambeth Road, SW8 1SP, 11pm-11am, Adv Tickets £4 Before 1am, £8 After, £13 OTD

 

Friday 17th February: Beefmince

Beefmince is back at the Royal Vauxhall Tavern; bigger, beefier and…mincier than ever! Resident DJs Silverhook and Cactushead will be serving meaty hunks of dance floor perfection to the ever-friendly crowd of bears, blokes, chubs, lovers and every imaginable shade in between. This time round, they’re going to be joined by DJ Perfecto, a Hungarian hungry for his first taste of beefmince, and someone with his fair share of bear fare, having played to Prides all throughout Europe. Don’t miss this!

Beefmince is on Friday 17th February at Royal Vauxhall Tavern, 372 Kennington Lane, SE11 5HY, 10pm-4am, £5 adv/with Beefmince cap or t-shirt/ before 11pm, or £7 OTD

 

Saturday 18th February: PUMP

After a brief hibernation, PUMP is back at den of debauchery Dalston Superstore this Saturday and your hirsute hosts Neil Prince and Johnny Kalifornia have guests in tow! Get the nice cutlery out, because James Barr from Heat Radio will be spinning smash hits upstairs and Simon Rigg (Fabric/ Watergate/ Robert Johnson/ all the biggies) will be laying some heavy beats downstairs. In the words of Danzel, (yes him) you’ve got to PUMP it up!

Pump is on Saturday 18th February at Dalston Superstore, 117 Kingsland High Street, E8 2PB, 9pm-3am, free before 10pm, £6 after.

 

Saturday 18th February: Athena

Athena is the brand new night coming to Eagle this Saturday and they’re celebrating the 1980’s; a decade of unabashed excess and camp pop music that made bold and unironic declarations such as ‘HEAVEN IS A PLACE ON EARTH’.

Basically, if the thought of George Michael pouring his cocktail into the Club Tropicana pool musters up feelings of carefree glamour, rather than unease about the hygiene or worries about how much that would have cost, well, this is the night for you. Paul Joseph (Pop Horror, Carpet Burn) and Gareth Hackney (Bar Wotever, Eagle VHS) take to the decks and will be spinning 80’s classics all night long!

Athena is on Saturday 18th February at Eagle London, 349 Kennington Lane, SE11 5QY, 9pm-4am, free before 10pm, £6 after

 

Saturday 18th February: XXL Lumberjack

They say you can only guarantee two things in life; death and taxes. Well, you can add having a rollickingly raucous night every time you pop into the big bearcaves of XXL to that too! This week, they’re going logging with a lumberjack theme; all beards, plaid shirts and rugged boots. Basically, just imagine someone with an E8 postcode and replace his craft beer with an axe. There ya go! Expect your usual mix of battering beats, burly blokes and good-time vibes. Plus, they’ve also got a mid-week session on a Wednesday for when you hit the hump day and need an XXL fix. We’ve all been there.

XXL Midweek is on Wednesday 8th February, 9pm-3am, members free, guests £5, XXL Lumberjacks is on Saturday 18th February, 10pm-7am, £10 members, £15 guests, both at at Pulse, 1 Invicta Plaza, South Bank, SE1 9UF

 

Saturday 18th February: Glory Lates: A Night at the Musicals!

Saturday nights at pub/club/hub/drag queen holding pen The Glory are ace; you get an hour of cabaret from some of the scene’s most innovative acts, plus a bit of a disco afterwards, all for free if you get there early enough. This week, QX cover girl Jonny Woo and Le Gateau Chocolat (pictured) are back from bemusing Australian audiences on tour (‘that shelia’s a bloody bloke mate’) and will be romping through their favourite musical numbers in typically adroit fashion.

Glory Lates: A Night At The Musicals is on Saturday 18th February at The Glory, 281 Kingsland Road, E2 8AS, free before. 10pm, £5 after

 

Sunday 19th February : Orange

There’s something so scandalous about going out on a Sunday night. While everyone else is slumped on the sofa watching an ITV period drama starring James Nesbitt, you can throw something tight and shiny on and dance to house music until dawn! And Orange is just the place to do that. They’ve always got a sexy selection of floor-filling DJs, mad light-shows, and the sort of hot crowd who are up for it, not despite it being Sunday night, but BECAUSE it’s Sunday night. So forget Monday, it’s so hetero. Get on it at Orange!

Orange is on Sunday 19th February at Fire, South Lambeth Road, Vauxhall, SW8 1SP, 11pm-7am, £7 before 1am, £11 adv.
