Wellington's longest running club night is back at San Fran to bring back nostalgia: Memories of sweat, innocence and... well... music.
'24 Hour Party People' is a night devised by DJ Bill E. Bill stole the title off the song, the book & the movie, but all of those three should give you some idea of what to expect musically. It is not, however, a strictly Factory records night (tho' that might be an excellent idea), rather a celebration of alternative pop music from the mid-80s on, through Madchester & baggy, Britpop etc, right up to today's indie.
It's probably easier to list some bands to give you some idea of what you'll be hearing, so here you go:
Stone Roses, Smiths, Happy Mondays, Pulp, Blur, Pixies, Suede, New Order, Libertines, Arctic Monkeys 808 State, The Charlatans, Cure, James, Pwei, Inspiral Carpets, Flowered Up, Ride, Oasis, Primal Scream, The La's, Kaiser Chiefs, Bloc Party Supergrass, Wedding Present, A Guy Called Gerald, The Farm, Joy Division, St Etienne, Wonder Stuff, My Bloody Valentine, KLF, Manics, Belle & Sebastian and many more...
