Damo B at Eastern Bloc Records
Eastern Bloc is throwing another free party this Friday, this time welcoming Damo B into the record shop-cum-venue. Damo is the resident at Bohemian Grove, an elusive techno night named after the equally shadowy retreat enjoyed by America’s business elite. Also a radio veteran, expect him to be spinning house, electronica and techno. And with an 11pm finish, there’s still plenty of time to go out after.
Fri 24 Mar, Eastern Bloc Records, 5A Stevenson Square, Manchester, M1 1DN. 6pm – 11pm, www.facebook.com
