We wanted to see more BOSS DJs who are not whitecishettechnobros behind the decks and on the lineups around town, so we decided we'd try our hand at helping GERMINATE THEM 🌱 This Open Decks is designed to be for all and any friendos who do not identify as cismale. It is specifically designed to create a space for femme/trans/nonbinary/genderqueer/questioning/ intersex folks.
No questions will be asked and no bodies will be policed.

Whether you’re a complete beginner or already finding your feet, this is a chance to come down, sink a tinnie or an OJ, have a play, meet fellow music lovers and just hang out.

As always, these sessions are compèred and led astray by Lupini AKA Nina Franklin ( ATHE / Melodic Distraction / Netil Radio ) who will be drinking cherry beer, giving a brief tour of the CDJ, mixers, cables, bpms & tempo. Then you'll be slung on the decks so you can get a feel for yourself. Jog that wheel, baby!

***Pweeeeeety please bring your fattest choones as .mp3s on a USB stick or CDs.***

Bar and snaxx will be available.

We technically begin at 7:00pm, but we'll be running a short demo from 6:30 - 7:00 so you can have a little teaser.
