How Does It Feel To Be Loved? 80s dance party


We're having an 80s party this week! To celebrate the release of the new Catenary Wires single, "Mirrorball", which is set in an 80s disco, Amelia and Rob from the band have assembled a crack squad of superstar DJs and asked them to play their favourite 80s songs.

The DJ line up features: Stephin Merritt and Claudia Gonson (The Magnetic Fields), Elizabeth Morris (Allo Darlin'), Matt Haynes (Sarah Records), Pete Astor (The Weather Prophets/The Loft), Beth Arzy (Jetstream Pony), Andy Lewis (Spearmint/Soho Radio), Rocker (The Rosehips/Dandelion Radio), Phil Sutton (Pale Lights/Comet Gain), DJ Downfall (Tender Trap) and more.

The Canterbury Arms now features an exhibition of David Bowie photographs. David was born a few minutes walk away from the pub.

You can find more info about HDIF on our website, our Facebook, our Instagram, and our Twitter.

All of our virtual dance parties are archived on our Mixcloud page.
