13 FREE parties with people we love this summer at The Social
This one is goes out to the pale and interesting, all the sun haters, the hot under the collar and the aircon crew, the redheads and the regular sweaters. This year, like the last 18 before it, we’re working on our prison tans* here at The Social on Little Portland St.
Over the course of 13 air conditioned Fridays this June, July and August we’re teaming up with some of the greatest labels in the land (and Nashville!) and a load of bands and zines we love to run a weekly festival in the basement.
