NIGHTLIFE: Warehouse Project Opening Weekend
If you like your basslines big, your nights long and your DJs world-famous, then trust us: you’re going to like your Projects in a Warehouse. The cavernous Store Street warehouse in Manchester, to be specific. Because once again it’s home to this series of huge club nights from Friday right up until the New Year, welcoming the likes of Jamie XX, Skrillex, Annie Mac, Mark Ronson and (whisper it) New Order along the way. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves: this weekend’s openers feature Groove Armada, MK and the mighty Seth Troxler behind the decks. Welcome back, WHP, we missed you.
25 Sept-1 Jan; from £25 Store St, Manchester M1 2GH thewarehouseproject.com
ART: Pancakes & Booze Art Show Never has a title given away what to expect from an event so entirely. There'll be pancakes – unlimited, all-you-can-eat ones at that. There'll be booze – in the form of beer, and more beer. And, most importantly, there'll be art – 50 emerging artists coming together for a massive east London warehouse exhibition/party featuring multimedia displays and live music. Although they had us at ‘unlimited pancakes’, to be fair.
24 Sept; £5 E1 Studio Spaces, Shoreditch, E1W 2BB pancakesandbooze.com
