Service charities boosted by clubbers’ generosity after fire

Have your say

We’re nearly a third of the way through the year already and we haven’t been disappointed by our clubs. This week is no different with a nostalgia-filled Fool’s Day.

Durty 45 returns to Little Johnny Russell’s tonight for another party in aid of No More Durty Water. For those of you who don’t know, it is a campaign to help provide safe and abundant water for the people of the world. This year, they are working to fund water based projects for a Children’s village in Uganda.

The night will feature tunes you grew-up with and will always love. This is about great music, not guilty pleasures. Expect a party extravaganza with a killer retro soundtrack.

DJs Macaco Do Paolo and Che Sirena de Niebla will be playing the finest selection of classic vinyl 45s with special guest Ms Mono and donations will be taken on the door.

It’s Thunderdome and It’s a Sin night down at the Wedgewood Rooms tonight. Regular readers will know that this is one of my favourite nights of the month.

Thunderdome is hosted by the Pompey icon Pete Scathe, who also brought you Subversion. Music ranges from classic rock through to heavy metal, punk, and alternative anthems.

This night starts in unison with It’s a Sin. Enjoy a mix of pre-2000 party anthems and classic tunes from 1950s rock ‘n’ roll to 90s indie, Britpop and dance, via all that was good from 80s pop and power ballads.

It will be the job of resident DJs Mikey Sparks and DJ Lemon to expertly take you through the last 60 years of music.

The best part of all this is that both rooms’ admission is completely free.
