Boxing Night

EDITOR’S NOTE: THIS FEATURE REFERS TO 2011.

Circus – Camp & Furnace

Circus’ Boxing Nights are almost as legendary as their Hallowe’en shindigs, promising you big beats to help you dance away that Christmas turkey. This year they’ve got new surroundings, setting up in the Camp and Furnace – a renovated warehouse on Greenland St – and Circus favourite Loco Dice is bringing his Desolat party to Liverpool with Art Department, Guti – Live, Tini all on board. The home team of Yousef, Lewis Boardman, Alex Wolfenden and Scott Lewis are also on the bill – we’ve got a pair of tickets to give away for this so keep an eye on our Twitter account for more details.

mUmU/Berghain @ The Black-E

The Berghain is Berlin’s most notorious club where it’s an accomplishment to even get past the terrifying door whores. We doubt the bouncers on the Black-E will be quite so fearsome but the music will definitely live up to expectations – Marcel Fengler and Ryan Elliott live and breathe techno and the venue is an inspired choice. Tickets are currently flying out for this so don’t leave it too late to get involved.

Elevator

If techno isn’t your thing and you fancy a more intimate setting, Elevator bar is house music all night long with a splash of disco thrown in for good measure. Thomas Tuft and Cosmik Boogie are your hosts for this evening along with *takes a breath* Pezz, Dan McGregor, The Mighty Quinn, Robin Jackson, Jessica Doyle, Adam Helliwell, Evoy and Paul Kane. Phew! You can pick up tickets from the bar itself or pop along to 3B Records.
8pm- 4am

After witnessing their recent birthday party, Leaf definitely know how to have a good time and although they’re keeping their cards close to their chest DJ wise, when they say they’re going to “hurl you into the party zone” we totally believe them. Oh and it’s free!

New Year’s Eve

Chibuku – Camp & Furnace

The times they are a-changing at Chibuku – their usual residents NYE party has been given a shake up in favour of booking a few special guests – Chase and Status bossed it at their birthday party early in the year so they’re back to do the same to welcome in 2012, along with Fake Blood, Futurebound and MC Madrush. They’ve also moved house temporarily to Camp & Furnace – Greenland St is going to be very busy this December…

Magnet

We missed Magnet when it closed unexpectedly and we cheered loudly when it reopened its doors a few months ago. We’ve bobbed down since and they’ve done a cracking job of fixing the faults whilst keeping it true to its former self. WELL DONE. They’ve also done a cracking job on booking a proper superstar name for their NYE shindig – Derrick Carter (pictured, top) is a House music heavyweight and if you fancy bumpity bumping in the new year Chicago style then there’s a moody basement on Hardman Street that you need to visit. Local lad Scott Lewis is providing warm up duties for the big man.
£15 adv
10pm – 3am

Shipping Forecast

Both upstairs and downstairs have got it going on in the Shipping Forecast – in the bar The Grots (Lewis Boardman and Patrick Gregson) are bringing a mix of house and disco classics and in The Hold you’ll find Abandon Silence’s NYE Residents Party featuring Mele, Monki Rich Furness and Andrew.
£5 adv
10pm – 3am

Leaf

Cosmic Boogie and Andy Mcloughlin are the names on the bill for Leaf as they present their no frills straight up HOUSE PARTY. It’s free in all night and fun times are promised – without clearing up the mess the morning after.
