Please note, this event has been cancelled.
All to the floor in E17 as the clubnight hits ace pub venue The Victoria in Walthamstow. Indiepop, new wave, post-punk and Northern Soul dancing till 3am in the best old music pub in town.
Come early for a game of pool or darts or a chat as the dancing and drinking builds.

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, Punk
