No Lights No Lycra Party cancelled – Party @ Loose Joints instead w/ Qua & Cleptoclectics!



Due to complications some license issues at 1000 Pound Bend the dance party has changed outfits…

TBL & NLNL sincerely apologize for the late notice and we’re all very disappointed that we can’t spread out in the beautiful warehouse / gallery at 1000 Pound Bend, it’s a real pity.

But we’re still pumped for what will be an extra special, up close and personal,


@ Horse Bazaar
Featuring DJ’s Blake and Tig and a tasty portion of the original line up


kicks off @ 9pm

So come and boogie anyway, and keep an ear to the ground for a new date,
and probably a new venue, because
the TBL & NLNL, Psuche headlined disco ball dance party will happen. Promise.
