There are Christmas parties. There are BIG Christmas parties. And then there are Christmas parties thrown in east London's coolest alt club, by east London's coolest day festival, and featuring a DAVID BOWIE TRIBUTE. Can you guess which one this is? That's right: this Friday, Moth Club is teaming up with Field Day and ch-ch-ch-changing into a huge celebration of the Starman himself. Not only will there be a live set by tribute act Absolute Bowie, but there'll be plenty more sound and vision thanks to Eat Your Own Ears DJs, plus a pub quiz and, we'd wager, a helluva lot of spandex. Go along and be heroes, just for one night.

Who says dance music is a boys' club? Definitely not The Black Madonna, aka Marea Stamper, aka Mixmag's DJ of the Year, aka our new hero. She's ruled 2017 with a sold-out residency at XOYO, a humdinger of a closing set at Sonar, and now this – a huge day-to-night show at legendary venue York Hall. And what a party is in prospect, filling London's biggest sprung-oak dance floor with all manner of dancers and performers – not the mention the sounds spun by the lady herself. Do we still believe? You're goddamn right we do.
