As you aimlessly walk into random light projections why not wander into section 8, especially If you haven’t heard Pjenné & Millú DJ together yet! Expect anything ranging meditative to hedonistic as these two really capable selectors weave some funky stuff. Also featuring is Whiskey Houston who has a distinct blend of techno and disco. Get in early before the line gets too long.


DJ Kiti & Chiara Kickdrum - All Night Long

7 hours of 4 on the floor for 10 dollars(plus those pesky booking fees), I call that a real bargain in an area of real wage stagnation! 

Techno queens DJ Kiti & Chiara Kickdrum are ready to cause some madness and mayhem. Just remember to take some glucosamine and take it easy on your knees. Get in quick as angel music bar has an intimate but limited capacity.

Dance your hearts out and bring a fan, I know it’s winter but it’s going to be hot and heaving. They have a cloakroom so be sure to use that!
