Line-up /Unskinny Bop Djs
Unskinny Bop is a queer disco for misfits of all persuasions, shapes and sizes.
We encourage: frenzied dancing, loveliness, smiling, apologising if you spill somebody's drink, revelling in awkwardness and geekery. We frown upon bitching, fighting, meanness, poster stealing, aloofness, being there to be seen and the
Next Big Thing.
We play pop music from across the genres and decades.
Expect to hear: Ike & Tina Turner, Jonathan Richman, Beyonce, Gossip, X-Ray Spex, The Supremes, Cher, Jay-Z, Trash Kit, Rihanna, The Sonics, Fleetwood Mac, Bikini Kill, The Specials, The Go-Go's, Robyn, Lady Gaga, The Violent Femmes, Elastica, Heart, The Temptations, Britney, Bis, Chic, Madonna, Joan Jett, Dolly Parton, Le Tigre, Bruce Springsteen, Nicki Minaj, Prince, Belle & Sebastian, L7, Cyndi Lauper, Hunx and His Punx, The Smiths, etc. etc.
We tend to get full up very early, and we really hate queues so please come early! Alex (Ghost School/Creep Club) is our regular guest deejay. He is a beacon of joy in our miserable lives. If you're planning a birthday party at the Bop, let us know *in advance* if you have particular song requests so we can try to accommodate them.
