ON THE FOURTH DAY OF CLUB SEX MY SWEET TART GAVE TO ME
FOUR TOPLESS GIRLS
THREE FREE FAGS
TWO JAEGER SHOTS
AND ELECTRO AND A FITTY
EAST EAST EAST! – CLUB COOL/NUKE/93 FEET EAST
If you’re out and about on a Saturday night I would very much recommend taking a trip to East London to see what’s on offer. Hackney, Dalston and Shoreditch are the places to be right now, housing some of the best underground events around. Expect to be queuing up outside places like snooker halls, car parks and strip clubs along with clubgoers donning vibrantly colourful, creative and outrageous outfits. Dress code? Think fabulous – and LOUD. Anything goes: got an old Thomas the Tank jumper? Great! Umbrella hat? Why not? Maggie Thatcher mask, pet budgie and peephole bra? Fantastic.
At the moment, the best nights are without doubt Club Cool and Nuke ‘Em All!, which take place respectively about twice a month [find them on Facebook – venues are often kept secret until the last minute so it’s the easiest way to stay in the know]. Music usually takes the form of the dirtiest, filthiest digital sounds speakers can crank out without bursting into flames, and typical features include audio-visual installations, wrestlers and girls wearing nothing but duct tape. Events can go on till 6am, so take a deep breath, slap on the X-Ray specs and go mad.
