A night that celebrates and recreates the free-thinking musical vibes of The Social's humble and hedonistic beginnings 20 years ago. In those days, it was a Sunday night session at nearby boozer The Albany, hosting The Chemical Brothers' first London residency and other homegrown DJ greats like Andrew Weatherall, Tricky, David Holmes and Justin Robertson.
With 2014 marking the twentieth anniversary of those sessions and 15 years of The Social as the venue we know and love now, it's high-time for more weekly party mayhem. Only this time it's on Friday, so you don't have to skive work on the Monday. Welcome to the Heavenly Social, featuring a prime cast of established and rising DJs, plus special guests, aiming simply to make people smile and dance their asses off, without any fuss over genres. Disco, reggae, funk, house, soul, hip hop... A taste of dancefloor heaven.
Entry is free with a membership card and all you have to do to grab one is email firstname.lastname@example.org in advance. Or it's a fiver on the door after 9pm. Either way, it's a bit of a bargain.
