What's On in the Northern Quarter ~ Sunday 25th August

Love Dose Manchester is One with Genius Of Time / Tristan Da Cunha

On August Bank Holiday, Love Dose bring to Manchester one of the UK’s leading underground jocks, vibe guru and resident at the longest running club night in the world (Back to Basics), FNR friend and favourite, bad boy producer, vinyl pusher and one of the masterminds behind the brilliantly surreal club in Leeds they call The Garage (DJ mags 2012 ‘Best Small Club’) – The one, the only Tristan Da Cunha. This got the Love Dose team pretty buzzing, but they wanted to make things even more special. I mean you only turn 1 once right? So they saw this video and knew what they had to do….

So the super popular Stockholm duo Genius Of Time will be flying straight in from their new home town of Berlin to entertain us all alongside Tristan and the Love Dose residents and friends. Get your tickets sharpish.

Community, Dry Live

Dry Live
Community 25 Year Later Party with Irfan Rainy & guests

This special event celebrates 25 years since the ‘summer of love’ saw House music explode onto the Manchester music scene. 1988 was quite an incredible time for House music in Manchester as the dance music scene exploded into a worlwide phenomena through clubs like The Haçienda and as a young DJ, Irfan Rainy was caught up in the overwhelming onrush of it all. Now 25 years later Irfan will play a classics set from the golden period of House music and has also put together a mix to show everyone that it wasn’t all ‘mindless’ Acid House in 88, there was plenty of Deep House and Detroit Techno rocking the dancefloors too. Have a listen and see you on the dancefloor!

Waste Not Clothes Swap, Soup Kitchen

Soup Kitchen
Waste Not Clothes Swap

A while ago the first Waste Not Clothes Swap went to Soup Kitchen unsure of what was going to happen when they opened the doors on their clothes swap. Well they needn’t have worried as it was a great success, so much so that they are back again this Bank Holiday Sunday. It’s simple really, you bring 5-20 clean, undamaged items of clothing you no longer want and take away the same amount with you. It will cost you £3 to get in which helps with the costs and you can come and go all day so you can check back for new additions to the stock. Also happening are learn to knit/crochet hour, art installations, vintage/homemade stalls, mega tunes playing and of course delicious homemade grub and craft ales from the Soup Kitchen folk. Get yourself down there and get yourself some new togs, you need them!!!
