London’s first ever queer Jewish club night has been inspired by teenage bar/bat mitzvah ceremonies. Created by the guy behind Hard Cock Life, not only are Amy Mulled-Winehouse and a Dana International tribute act scheduled to make appearances but one very lucky person will be chosen as a Buttmitzvah boy or girl, hoisted on to a chair and presented with a ‘mildly inappropriate’ version of the bar/bat mitzvah speech to read aloud. The tagline alone is hilarious: ‘The ultimate cumming of age party’. The Glory. Sat Nov 19.
The Rare Pleasure series is about getting record shops and labels to pick play their favourite house, disco, soul and boogie. This week it’s Love Vinyl’s turn, and they’re bringing Detroit Swindle in for four hours of disco. Corsica Studios. Sat Nov 19.
Get ready to croon ‘Please, Please, Please, Let Me Get What I Want’ at this special night playing The Smiths' album ‘Hatful of Hollow’ in full. Montague Arms. Sat Nov 19.
