14 — 15 August 2020 Entrance is free

Join Psychedelic DiscoTech for a livestreamed fundraiser that will raise vital funds for two unique spaces within Manchester’s cultural landscape.

The Carlton Club and Partisan are grassroots venues that value community over all else. From Partisan’s inclusive programming to the Whalley Range asset that is The Carlton Club Community Garden, both venues give back to Manchester far more than they take.

Now’s the time to repay the favour, while enjoying livestreamed sets by local electronic artists.

Out in front is Andy Robinson, whose career in the music business has taken him from opening The Haçienda in 1982 to being made Music Manager of the Year in the 2019 Artist & Manager Awards (he’s one half of the management team behind New Order). At the Carlton Club he’ll be spinning upfront house and techno.

Andy will be joined by the three founders of Kiss Me Again, an LGBT+ clubnight and NTS Radio show dedicated to bringing good times to Manchester’s queer community and beyond. Antoin Lindsay, David Dobson and Matthew Rothery will be digging through their eclectic record collection to bring you house and techno from around the world.

Finally, we’ll hear from Abena and Anna from All Hands on Deck, a feminist DJ collective that runs open deck parties for women, trans and non-binary people. Their nights at Partisan span house, techno, IDM, jungle, trance, acid, bass and more – so expect a broad fusion of flavours from them.

After all of that, Psychadelic DiscoTech will be cutting to an afterparty courtesy of their pal Jorge Rochester, who’ll be offering up cutting edge techno from Mexico City.

To join, head over to the Carlton Club’s Facebook page at 8pm on Friday. Money raised will be split equally between the two venues, and a link to the relevant JustGiving page will be made available on the night.
