It’s been ages since we’ve run one, but in 2018 we’re launching a new club night with my good friends over at Haus of Sevigny (who’s also a resident DJ at the mint Bollox night in Manchester). It’s called ANOINTED, and it’s going to be an alt.queer celebration where we’ll be playing what we’re calling ‘a deliciously dark selection of leftfield pop, indie, alternative and electronic music designed for dancing.’

The first event’s being held at AATMA, one of our favourite clubbing spaces in Manchester. It’s happening on Saturday the 10th of February and everything kicks off at 11pm.

Here’s a list of a few of the bands we’ll be playing, just to give you an idea of what to expect:

Blaqk Audio, Alice Glass, The Birthday Massacre, Goldfrapp, ionnalee, Ladytron, The Knife, Depeche Mode, Bauhaus, Fever Ray, Electric Youth, iamamiwhoami, New Order, IAMX, Mr Kitty, Light Asylum, Röyksopp, Duran Duran, Peaches, Kite, Grimes, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Pet Shop Boys, Client, Purity Ring, Henric de la Cour, TR/ST, M83, Prayers, Death of Lovers, Night Club, The Horrors, Lana Del Rey, Ashbury Heights, HEALTH, Kauf, Empathy Test, Ghost, Garbage, She Past Away, Aesthetic Perfection, Susanne Sundfør, Trentemøller, Selofan, Grace Jones, Gary Numan, Air, Adam Lambert, Lebanon Hanover, The Black Queen, Covenant, Pictureplane, Assemblage 23, Austra, Fischerspooner, David Bowie, Cold Cave, Rammstein, Marilyn Manson, Chromatics, Pastel Ghost, She Wants Revenge, Eurythmics, The Cure, Torul, The Sisters of Mercy, Desperate Journalist, Drab Majesty, Placebo, VNV Nation, Zola Jesus, Vivien Glass, Angelspit, Boy Harsher
