PAT NEVIN GUEST DJS ON FRI 4TH NOV

We’re back at The Shacklewell Arms in Dalston on Friday 4th November!

You can click going on the Facebook event before doors open to get on our £4 cheaplist.

Our guest DJ is the ex-footballer and now pundit Pat Nevin! Pat has been a regular DJ at the club since 2010 becoming a firm favourite. Infamously asking to be taken off early during a match so he could go to a Cocteau Twins gig, he also helped out on John Peel’s radio shows.

Expect to hear him play some of his best-loved bands like The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, Belle and Sebastian, The Fall, Camera Obscura, The Undertones and New Order. You can listen to one of his most recent DJ set at the club on our Spotify page. Pat will be DJing from 11:30pm and he’ll be playing a “make mine a double” set, playing two songs in a row by the same artist.

We’ll be playing our mix of indiepop, post-punk, new wave and sixties music.
