Team Nuis@nce are very proud to announce a very special fundraiser in aid of The National Autistic Society.
Johnny Dean is back back BACK.
You know how we feel about Menswe@r – we named our club Nuis@nce for christ’s sake – so you can imagine how excited we are about this one. The June Nuis@nce will feature the first live performance by former Menswe@r frontman Mr Johnny Dean in 15 years.
“I thought Bowie was quite appropriate because 1. he owns 2013 really and 2. no other musician had as much influence on Britpop than him, not even the Beatles. He was the cloth we all embroidered on really.” – Johnny Dean
Join us on 7th June at the Buffalo Bar to celebrate the year of Bowie’s return by playing a set of our favourite Bowie songs with the frontman whose hair we all tried to duplicate. We’re also going to be raising money for a cause very close to Mr Dean’s heart; The National Autistic Society. There are over 500,000 people with autism in the UK – that’s 1 in 100. Together with their families, that’s over two million people whose lives are touched by autism every single day.
Autism is a lifelong developmental disability that affects how a person communicates with, and relates to, other people. It also affects how they make sense of the world around them.
It is a spectrum condition, which means that, while all people with autism share certain difficulties, their condition will affect them in different ways. Some people with autism are able to live relatively independent lives but others may have accompanying learning disabilities and need a lifetime of specialist support. People with autism may also experience over or under-sensitivity to sounds, touch, tastes, smells, light or colours.
Autism is still tremendously misunderstood, and we’re proud to be able to get involved in a small way and help raise funds for a worthy cause.
In order to raise funds, we’re pushing up the price of entry for one night only with all profits going to the NAS. We’ll also be running a raffle, with tickets available on the night to win some amazing prizes donated by some very generous people, including experiencedays.co.uk, Tatty Devine, Me & Zena, Charles of London and Headmasters. Watch this space for more information….
The band will take to the stage at 9.15pm sharp, then it’ll be Nuis@nce DJs taking you through to 4am. Don’t be surprised if the set isn’t ENTIRELY Bowie covers…
Nuis@nce DJs play Britpop. Established in Camden in 2009, they’ve spent the years since packing out the 300 capacity Monarch in Camden month in, month out, DJing at the Isle of Wight festival and playing the best of Britpop with guest DJ slots along the way from members of Menswe@r, The Bluetones, Gay Dad, The Long Blondes and XFM DJ Sunta Templeton. One year they excitedly booked Dodgy to play their birthday party and once, Luke Haines of The Auteurs came. He didn’t DJ though. He just pointed at the crowd and said to Steven Horry: “This is my legacy. And I give it to you.”
