The 433 are some kind of cool collective from Manchester that Jayou knows and who are responsible for the Parklife festival up there as well as a number of other cool events. They’re bringing their parties down to LDN under the theme of monthly (I think) warehouse raves that are each themed around some kind of apocalypse. One of my friends on Facebook went to the first one (which was themed around Mayans and the end of the world prophecy in 2012) and it looks like she had a wild time. Sick Chirpse favourite Larry Sun is a resident DJ too if you need any more convincing.
Fancy dress is compulsory which might bum people out but even though it’s pretty bent when you think about it, it’s normally actually pretty fun when you do it and it shouldn’t be hard to dress up as someone from the 90’s. Like just wear a baseball cap backwards or a flannel shirt or something. Easy. Here’s the press release below. See you there.
APOCALYPSE SURVIVAL GUIDE
THE MILLENIUM BUG BITES BACK
Presented by The 433
Friday April 20th / 10pm-6am ISLINGTON METAL WORKS, EC1V 1NQ
£5 Super Early-bUG Tickets on sale now
Straight off the back of saving the world from the Mayan gods, The 433 are back in another epic battle to save mankind. Ã¬The Millennium Bug Bites BackÃ® is the second in their series of interactive, immersive and experiential late night clubbing events.
The 433 invite guests to get their best 90’s geek on and join Professor Fugly on his mission to save the world from the evil Millennium Bug.
Like Terminator theyÃll travel through a timewarp miniaturiser to be transported back into the 90Ãs and shrunk into the circuitry of a super computer ravaged by the Drag Queen Bug.
Once inside guests venture into Professor FuglyÃs Hip Hop laboratory and see how he and his hacker homeboys are preparing to battle the bug. Then after heading to the bar to receive an immunising shot, they head off to see how preparations are going for the Y2K pop party palace. There is also a secret BugÃs lair where the drag queen millennium bug is hiding. Will Professor Fugly be able to track her down and save the world by killing her?
This is a night as much about the experience as anything else, 90’s B-movie decoration, innovative lighting, projection mapping and bespoke costume design all combined into a package that will make this the best party of the last millennia.
