OH GOD IS THIS A GOOD IDEA? (rhetorical question)
Get ready to reignite that love/hate relationship cos your favourite bad night out is back. Expect media-types, influenzas, old broads, naive twinks, jaded queens, 1 confused hunk in a singlet, lesbians with a vendetta, siblings who are dating, a pile of enby moss, FAR too many twitter gays, no torys, lotsa poppers, plenty of hos, little ego and very friendly happy people, living in a sad world
You’ll be so pleased to hear that Knickerbocker’s residents are alive and well. Shortly after the Knickerbocker online party, which all attendees are forbidden to speak of, Aaron Zimbra, Alex Lawless and Rata set off for a decommissioned nuclear bunker 3 miles from Kidderminster where they wiled out the pandemic with two squirrels and Chromatica on vinyl. On that note, let’s please have a clap for our key workers: Roisin Murphy, Jessie Ware & Lady Gaga. Thank you for your service through these difficult times. Expect to hear all the music we were forbidden to dance too such as that WAP/Toxic remix, that naff Fiona Apple/Carly Rae Jepson mashup, and the sound of 150 people collectively having a big sniff of Jungle Juice. Fab!
You probably won’t recognise Hackney Wick when you come crawlin’ back. There’s a brewery moved in next door to The Yard, so please dress extra hostile. The Yard want to keep us all safe and have a COVID policy which you should read. They’ve also reduced the capacity by 40%, to make it a bit safer. Therefore it’s gonna be an intimate party, just until the picture becomes a bit clearer of what we’re all getting into. Get your tickets quickly, as it will sell out faster than ever.
Knickerbocker is East London’s friendliest queer dance party. As ever, no racism; misogyny; transphobia; homophobia, body, slut or kink shaming will be tolerated. Seriously. We want Knickerbocker to be a welcoming party for all, and it’s everyone’s responsibility to help create a welcoming space. Please look after yourselves and respect each other. Knickerbocker stands with our trans family members. If your attendance is dependent on a safe carriage home, drop us a message as we have a small budget to ensure our trans pals get home safely, but this is first come first served.
