Des Was a Bowie Fan returns to London Town on Friday May 27th, 8pm till 12.45am at the Walthamstow Trades Hall, a big and beautiful old workingman’s club, where everyone has more room to relax and enjoy.
On the big old sprung dancefloor, expect to hear everything from The Shangri-Las to The Smiths, Brigitte Bardot to Belle and Sebastian, Roy Orbison to The Raincoats, Dusty Springfield to Depeche Mode, Jimmy Ruffin to David Bowie, with a sweet underlay of 1950s and 1960s beat ballads.
Entry is free for Trades Hall Members and £3 for guests and non-members.
You can grab an advance ticket HERE.
In case you’re not able to come along given the ongoing pandemic, we’ll also be broadcasting the club as part of our regular Saturday night program, live on Des Was a Bowie Fan Radio
