DJs Dave Haslam and Will Tramp, with Everything Everything (DJ set) and surprise live guests, kick off an after party.
Taking place at the Northern Quarter’s art/club space 2022nq, Verdampft is a special party to mark the opening of Jeremy Deller’s new exhibition at Manchester Art Gallery, and forms part of the Manchester Weekender programme. Everything Everything are joining us after their sell-out show at the Ritz that evening to play an exclusive DJ set alongside our headlining DJs, Dave Haslam (Hacienda/Yellow) and Will Tramp (‘City Life’ DJ of the Year 2012). There will also be surprise live guests on the night. A genuinely uplifting evening of good times and great music is guaranteed. “Verdampft” (“melts into air”) takes its name from a word in the German phrase, “alles Ständische und Stehende verdampft” used by Karl Marx in the Communist Manifesto (1848), which was informed by his time here in Manchester, and his discourse with Friedrich Engels at Chetham’s Library. A translation of the whole phrase is the title of Jeremy Deller’s exhibition, All That Is Solid Melts Into Air. 2022NQ, The Basement, 20 Dale Street, M1 1EZ, 10pm-2.30am, Friday 11 October, £7 (very limited £10 tickets on the door).
