Mr McClelland's Finishing School
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.
Ready to cut loose? You can dance along at home to this insanely fun club night
Mr McClelland’s Finishing School is hands down one of the best dance parties in Melbourne. The monthly dance party of all things indie, pop, rock and soul usually cuts loose on dance floors across Melbourne (in the past it’s been held at Bella Union, the Espy and the Gaso) but now it’s headed online.
Every Friday night, the Finishing School crew will be livestreaming DJ sets via Zoom. You can support the team by purchasing a general admission ticket, which is $5 per person (or $10 for a household). Your ticket will include a meeting ID code for the online session.
Finishing School promises to play everything from the Smiths to Taylor Swift, the Beatles to Justin Bieber, and it’s all but guaranteed you’ll be bopping along from your own disco dance floor (I’ve set aside a dance square in my kitchen, hbu?) Participants are encouraged to dress up, interact with your fellow attendees and even make requests to our favourite dancing DJ Mr McClelland. Head to the Facebook page event section for more info.
For more fun, McClelland is also hosting free daily sets on Twitch to help spice up your lunch break. It's called Lunchtunes and it happens 1-2pm every Tuesday to Friday on Twitch. More info here.
