EL DIABLO’S SOCIAL CLUB – JAMES PRIESTLEY...

EL DIABLO’S SOCIAL CLUB JAMES PRIESTLEY NEIL DIABLO (EVIL K’NEIL) DAVE WALKER FRIDAY 22ND APRIL 10:30PM-4AM KRAAK GALLERY 11 STEVENSON SQUARE (behind Hula bar) NORTHERN QUARTER MANCHESTER Having bid adieu to our sanctuary of recent times, to take up the road less travelled back to the underground and irregular, we present our latest dance soiree in the clandestine KRAAK Gallery.

Expect a super riotous rave that’s reet off the dial. It’s with great pleasure that we invite James to make his Diablos debut. Numbers will be uber limited and given how many hoards we turned away from the sell-out Greg Wilson party, you...
