Clubbed to death

Murkage Dave brings you the essential club and gig guide to the weekend

Published on April 7th 2011.

Clubbed to death

Featured Event:
Juicy presents Keep It Wheel @ The Deaf Institute
Date: Friday April 9th
Time: 10pm-3am
Music: 90s HipHop and R&B
Price: £3 adv. £5 OTD

Gone are the days where hipsters pretended to hate hip-hop and R&B. At Juicy’s weekly Wednesday night at Joshua Brooks you’ll find a crazy range of indie scenesters and student billionaires buying out the bar and dropping it to the floor.

Happy to share the love with those of us who have to earn a flipping living, Juicy also puts on a bi-monthly themed weekend event at The Deaf Institute. Previous themes have included a West Coast vs East Coast hip-hop battle and a Prince Erotic City special.

This weekend’s event takes the Wheel of Fortune format and gives it an urban twist.Split into different genres the wheel will control what the DJs play on the night. Spun by a smoking hot hip-hop honey, the wheel could land on “Old School, Fat Rappers, West Coast, Dirty South, R'n'B...if you're lucky it might make it rain prizes into the crowd, or if disaster strikes it might land on ‘Will Smith’.

The night is the brainchild of organisers and DJs Oscar Wildstyle and Wiggie Smalls. Proceedings will also be hosted by yours truly.

A piece of advice to all you Juicy virgins out there. Pretty much every Juicy event ever has sold out, so make sure you get down there extra early, or grab yourself a ticket for only £3 here.www.juicy-club.co.uk

This is the same 'Fallowfield soul-saviour' / 'student karaoke-soul sensation' David Lewis?

This is the same guy you gave a whole article to so he could slag off Dave Vincent from Sankeys isn't it? Interested in his nights? No thanks, can't be arsed with divas whose quest against the big bad Sankeys is backed by ManCon. Interested in these articles? Maybe, but just to see which ManCon friendly place is pushed next. Really disapointed ManCon but not shocked, this 'place' is going the wrong way in my opinion.

Anon, your memory is skewed.

We didn't give anyone an article to slag off Sankey's. We reported on something he'd said about Sankey's on Twitter. We offered Sankey's a chance to comment - they declined.

It got an awful lot of reads, so thousands of people thought it sufficiently interesting.

To say it was 'backed' by ManCon is simply not accurate.

You'll no doubt have seen the piece we ran this week, about the Basement Jaxx benefit gig - at Sankey's, with details of where you can buy tickets.

Or maybe not.

Articles where you give publicity to people calling others 'evil little men' are always likely to get a fair few reads. Not to mention the other bitchy insults that were flying around in the article. I think Sankeys did the right thing in not responding as it was all a bit playground. Benefit gigs are one thing but this murkage guy certainly seems to have found a soft spot with you guys. I wasn't the only one to think the article was strange. This was the article for anyone who wants to read murkage trying out for drama school: www.manchesterconfidential.co.uk/…/de_16561.asp…

Is this advertorial?

No. Listings. Including a night at (gasp) Sankeys.
