On Saturday 4th February the Italian party crew SRSLY. celebrates its first birthday and moves to London for a very special night. The event will be held at The Russian Bar, one of the most closely guarded secrets of the Dalston connection and very likely the most underground club of all Shoreditch.

VAGHE STELLE, GUIDO SAVINI and VENKMAN will complete the line-up of the night.
