Connies Acid Party #5, Saturday 19th May 2018, Gorilla, Whitworth Street, Manchester.
Get set for the Phuture! DJ Pierre heads back to Manchester to perform live for 5th charity fundraiser
Last year Tiny Steps charity took a giant step forward and took Connies Acid House Party to a new venue and to the next level, producing an immense party that people were talking about for weeks later and flooding social media with comments and videos. How on earth could we top that? Well, we think we have managed it as DJ Pierre returns to Manchester to play a live acid set under his Phuture guise with new partner DJ and producer Lessnoise on Saturday 19th May to raise funds in aid of a young local girl called Connie, who has a rare form of epilepsy. This night is now firmly cemented in the Manchester nightlife calendar as quite simply one of the best annual shindigs the city has to offer.
DJ Pierre shot to fame in 1986 with his original partner Spanky under the guise of Phuture, producing the monumental Acid Trax EP which paved the way for a new form of music and sending dance music off on a completely different tangent to where it was heading. Acid House was born, and the rest is history.
Making his debut at this event, we are delighted to welcome along Justin Robertson, back in his adopted home where he cut his DJ teeth back in the 80s and early 90s and now a legendary DJ in his own right. We know Justin is going to deliver the goods for us on the night!
And back by dope demand is the man himself, former Hacienda resident and Technics/DMC World mixing champion Chad Jackson, who never fails to set floor alight with his eclectic mix of Acid and Hacienda classics, always leaving the Connies crowd wanting more, so once again we?re more than happy to oblige...
Providing warm-up for the night, and after a stunning debut last year featuring a live acid / DJ set, we welcome back Manchesters Suddi Raval & Adam Wilson who promise to give us something special to whet our appetites in the pre-show warm-up session with support from Paul McGuinness & Steven Dobson. Be early, this promises to be an amazing couple of hours!
