This event has been and gone.
London clubnight Des Was A Bowie Fan returns to Edinburgh. Indiepop, new wave, post-punk, 60s Pop and Northern Soul dancing at ace subterranean club venue Henry's Cellar Bar on Morrison Street, just off Lothian Road.
The Shangri-Las to The Smiths, Brigitte Bardot to Belle and Sebastian, Roy Orbison to The Raincoats, Dusty Springfield to Depeche Mode, The Beach Boys to Ballboy, Jackie Wilson to Joy Division, Buddy Holly to David Bowie, with a smattering of Edinburgh post-punk legends, come get drunk.
Des Was a Bowie Fan is a London clubnight founded in 2013 at the Tutu's nightclub on the Strand. It has since played out residencies at East End venues Jamboree, The George Tavern and Paper Dress Vintage, creating feral Pop dancing havens for lovers and dreamers young and old. Guest DJs at the club in its London carnation have included Eddie Argos of Art Brut, Darren Hayman of John Peel favourites Hefner, and feminist author and post-punk musician Helen McCookerybook. It is Wales' 600th most successful export across the bridge, coming in just after Shakin' Stevens' autobiography.
