Check out Werkha’s production, ‘Lapwing’ below. I’ve only just heard this. I’m so late to this party, it’s obvious I was busy being rubbish elsewhere.

Any flyer that has Donna Summer on, well, it’s a deal sealer for me. The Uptown crew will be treating dancers to tracks from the likes of Michael Jackson, Chic, Prince, Cameo and Earth Wind & Fire – as well as Miss Summer, of course – for a Good Friday night filled with Disco, Boogie and 80s.
The Deaf Institute, 135 Grosvenor Street, Manchester M1 7HE, 10pm to 3am, £3 adv, £5 doors, tickets available from thedeafinstitute.seetickets.
