Night Slugs Birthday at 51º27'

 Night Slugs 4th Birthday Tour

Since Bok Bok & L-Vis 1990 formed Night Slugs in 2008, the label has consistently blurred the boundaries between house, UK funky, grime and dubstep with releases from the likes of Mosca, Lil Silva and Pearson Sound as well as the two other guests for this night, Jam City & Girl Unit.

51º27' welcomes the Night Slugs crew on board the Thekla to celebrate the label's 4th birthday on Friday 11th May. Doors open at 10pm and - as always - there is a free guestlist available.

For more details, check out the 51º27' Facebook Page and Event:

I Don't Like Mondays

When Sir Bob of Geldof sang (I use the term loosely) that he didn't like Mondays, he obviously had no idea what treats we have in store for you on Monday nights throughout May and June - how could he? The song was released years ago.

Lucky you for not living in the past! Here's the lowdown on those Monday events in May - click on the images for more information, ticket details etc.
