It’s that time of the month again, time to dust off some classics for HDD House Party at The Libertine. We will be tucking into one of the Libertine’s great pizzas and if we are lucky Famous Eno might treat us to some of his famous buffalo wings. It’s more low key than our events at The Shacklewell but just as much fun, whether you want to get warmed up for a night out or just want to catch up with friends we have got you covered. If you haven’t been before it sounds a little something like this. Join us this Saturday (September 20th) from 8pm til 1am at The Libertine.
Hipsters Dont Dance & Swing Ting Present World Carnival from Hipsters Dont Dance on Vimeo.
If you missed our collab with Swing Ting on Carnival Sunday check out what you missed above. If you were one of the may ravers who joined us palancing and skanking see if you can spot yourselves. It was such an amazing night and this video by Akito Hernshaw of Hub 16 definitely captures the vibe. Thanks again to Fox, Trigganom, Famous Eno, Murlo, Samrai, Joey B, Platt and Birthdays for helping us make it all happen.
