This time around The 80s Night was moved across the road from our previous venue to RAW Nightclub - bigger bar, bigger sound system, club lights, bigger dancefloor, and the return of my co-DJ, Kat ([personal profile] retrokitty). Also, an even sturdier booth to make it even less likely I'd endanger the punters with my dancing as well as our music.

Ours was the first act in a three-part night - The 80s Night, followed by a rather good Gary Numan tribute band, and then an alternative club night to complete the night.

The evening also saw the welcome resurgence of the (in)famous queue, much to the confusion of the bar staff.

I should totally go to Whitby Goth weekend. It's just that it always seems to coincide with elections...

To which, alas, it turns out I am not going. It's the weekend after Leipzig and it's not really going to work.
