Time Out says

Known for four decades as Jewel’s Catch One, original owner Jewel Thais-Williams’s nightclub was simply legendary. It was easily one of the first Black gay dance bars when it opened in 1973, and certainly became the longest run; over the years it boasted performances from the likes of Whitney Houston, Janet Jackson, Donna Summer and Madonna. Thais-Williams built a more inclusive, judgment-free analog to Studio 54 where you were just as likely to find disco enthusiasts as you were vegan soul food or alternative health services. Eventually the club changed owners in 2015, briefly under the name Union, and broadened its scope of performances (while also losing a bit or the original glamour), but it’s since adopted to the Catch One moniker again.

What’s on

Fleetmac Wood

As the scrambled name implies, this London-based collective spins nothing other than the sweet tones of new edits and remixes of Fleetwood Mac tracks. The parties themselves are blindingly good fun and pretty much all the edits are superb, often full of ambient disco and dreamy electronic vibes which give a lovely lush dancefloor touch to FM’s classics. For this 10-year anniversay show, “A Decade of Dreams, Decadence and Disco,” extravagant costumes, Mac-related or otherwise, are very much welcome, so get your best Stevie Nicks bouffant on and prepare for unabashed Fleetwood fun.
