Club Londonist: Feeling the love of Jolene

So yes it's been rather a while since Londonist went clubbing. January is all about the money saving, and February is all about the gym. This weekend though? It's all about the Guilty Pleasures.

Occupying the final Saturday of each month at London's swankiest venue, Koko, the night has come a long way since it's tiny beginning at Hammersmith Working Mens club. It's manifesto is to play those songs which you'd shy away from claiming you like, but secretly inside you love them. Things like 9 to 5, Afternoon Delight, Betty Davis Eyes, and Cold as Ice appeared on their compilation albums so we expect a night where we can unashamably sing and dance along to these along with like-minded people.

At tomorrow's party, creator and resident DJ Sean Rowley, will be joined by a whole host of special guests. We're particularly excited about The English Disco room which features sets from Pete Wiggs of St. Etienne and Lawrence from Felt/Denim and pants wettingly excitingly a set from Jarvis Cocker and Steve Mackey of Pulp. Expect to find us amongst the people staring starstruck at the Pulp boys.

Now the bad bit. It's officially sold out. Yes, we've just told you all this so you can stare angrily and frustratedly at us. The thing is though, every so often tickets keep popping up at this page. It's only normally 5 at a time, but we managed to get ours that way, so we suggest you just keep popping to that page every so often. Failing that you can buy way in advance for their March night on the 25th of the month or show up at Koko at 1030pm tomorrow in case of any returns.

See you on the dancefloor!
