As night starts to dominate day we get less of that Vitamin D fix, so good Friday evenings are essential for our winter-bound mental health. Go Bang is the warehouse party held at the venue tucked under the railway station and as we verge off-road to walk over the muddy grit we could almost be trudging through an industrial estate to find those elusive parties of the 90s. Inside emanates the old school vibes too, with lo-fi visuals projected onto the rustic walls while the Xanadu DJs whip up the iridescent crowd into a disco furore.
Tonight’s full title – House of Go Bang – not only nods to the acid house played by Tim Rivers and Steve KIW but it also reflects the community culture inherent in their warehouse parties: there’s a following, there’s a family and newbies are welcomed with mile-wide smiles. As we sweat away the hours on the dancefloor we can’t quite believe it’s all for free.
