Paper Dress Vintage pays homage to two New York institutions this Saturday, with its CBGB’s vs. Studio 54 party, a night of live music and DJ sets channelling Blondie, Talking Heads, Patti Smith, the Ramones, Television and more, with craft beers and cocktails served all night.
Live acts will include CBGBs supergroup The Screaming Heebee Geebees, Bridport Dagger Play Suicide, Barbarella Disco Dome and Princess Julia, with DJ sets from Heidi Heels, Wendy KB and Mauro Venegas of Some Weird Sin. With a line-up that really nails the energy of the era, fans of New Wave and Punk won’t want to miss this one-nighter.
Perfect your thrift-store look with as much ripped denim as you can handle in the heat – and if your wardrobe needs a seventies kick, Paper Dress Vintage sells racks of retro gear from 1900 onwards in its Boutique, which is open ‘til 7.30pm daily.
There are a limited number of advance tickets available here for £8.
