Losing Patience

Posted in Club Nights, Music

I’ve never quite understood why clubs feel the need to change their music style at the end of a night. At our choice venues, for several hours they’ll flow through a selection of indie, alternative and electro tracks but when it comes to the last hour, and worryingly even earlier on a couple of nights, the DJs start to put on a playlist of so-called ‘classics’.

When you’ve been enjoying the likes of Late Of The Pier, LCD Soundsystem, Bloc Party and Mystery Jets all evening, the last thing you want is Cindy Lauper or ‘Great Balls Of Fire’, but DJs persist with putting them on. I wouldn’t mind if everyone else was enjoying the ‘classics’ as much as all the new stuff, but an audible groan can always be heard when the music starts to stray. It’s gotten so extreme in London now that we think enough is enough. It’s time to start our own night.

On Thursday 11th December, Fan the Fire Magazine presents Mirror Kisses at Proud in Camden, London’s ever-popular nightspot. There’ll be great music all night with us on the decks and two very special guest DJs. A couple of live bands will take to the stage in between with the launch night secret headliner to be announced in the run up to the event.
