Des Was a Bowie Fan: David Byrne After-Party on Saturday 27th October 2018
The next Des Was A Bowie Fan
in Cardiff is on Saturday October 27th. Indiepop, new wave, post-punk, 60s soul and rock'n'roll dancing till 3am under the steeple of the church of St John at The Big Top, 10 Feet Tall. Fitting for Halloween.
David Byrne is in town on this night, playing a gig at the Motorpoint Arena. As such the dancefloor will be touched with the twisted Talking Heads wand, the contrary, crackpot waltz of the band's hits from 1977 to '92 weaving their way through the night.
There will also be a slithering stream of Halloween hits in with the usual club mix.

Des Was a Bowie Fan is a London clubnight founded in 2013 at the Tutu's nightclub on the Strand. It has since played out residencies at East End venues Jamboree, The George Tavern and Paper Dress Vintage, creating feral and ageless Pop dancing havens for lovers and dreamers. Guest DJs at the club in its London carnation have included Eddie Argos of Art Brut, Darren Hayman of John Peel favourites Hefner, and feminist author and post-punk musician Helen McCookerybook. It is Wales' 600th most successful export across the bridge, coming in just before Gindrinker's ode to darts in popular culture and just after Shakin' Stevens' autobiography.
Music Genres: 60s, 80s, Alternative, Indie, Rock & Roll
