Since we threw the “Greatest Birthday Party in the World... EVER” back in January 2007, the 12 months in between our forthcoming 2nd Birthday have been, well, pretty darn mental to be honest for Together!! Infamous collaborations with Modular and DFA Records set the standard, with some wonderful fancy dress themes along the way including the hilarious, if a little frightening Halloween humdinger and November’s classic ‘Find Me a Superhero’ session. More recently, Together NYE (featuring 2manydjs, Mylo and Simian Mobile Disco) sold out with nearly 3 weeks to spare, whilst in between that roadblock and this latest mini-festival, we’ve got a rather exciting Free Members party (Together Again) to look forward to featuring some of the stars of the future in Yuksek, Alex Metric, D.I.M, Radioclit and Hannah Holland. Along the way, the NME called Together the “most debauched party”... whilst Timeout said we were "still the best monthly festival-in-a-club for ravers and rockers", which was nice. Not to be outdone, The Guardian Guide chipped in by saying, "If you like your Saturdays larger than Robbie Williams’ ego, be prepared to be knocked out for the rest of the week by what Together has in store", leaving music rag I-DJ to describe us as "The capital’s leading night for forward-thinking electronic house music and flamboyant party shenanigans!!" But hey, let’s not digress, we have the small, no make that LARGE matter of The Birthday Bash to discuss at Turnmills on Saturday 26th January 2008, as Together presents “Now that’s what I call a Birthday Party, Vol 2” (cos it’s our 2nd Birthday geddit?!)
In typically old skool fashion, Together’s Birthday party will encapsulate everything that was great about the birthday parties you went to as a kid growing up. We therefore follow up last year’s much sought after ‘Goody bag’ with another exclusive bag of tricks. This year we have 500 ‘Goody bags’ up for grabs, available to the first 500 bods through the door. The actual bag itself will be a one-off collectable Together cloth bag – the ultimate fashion accessory (!), and packed inside the bags will be various bits n’ bobs donated by some of the artists performing on the night (such as Evil Nine, The Metros, The Maccabees, Trevor Loveys and Rex the Dog)... plus they’ll be a special Together CD, mixed by resident Anil Chawla, discount vouchers for Rokit (vintage clothes) and Pimps & Pinups (hairdressers) and plenty more besides. Other silly birthday-type-stuff on the night will see the Cinema Lounge devoted to making us chuckle, as we’ll be showing some of our favourite comedies like Airplane, Dumb & Dumber, Happy Gilmore, The Goonies and the Big Lebowski on the big screen, whilst upstairs in Topfloor, we’ll be spinning “The Greatest Birthday Soundtrack in the world...EVER!!” courtesy of our legendary Together All-Stars. Pimps & Pinups hairdressers will also be offering FREE HAIRCUTS and the FREE JELLY & ICE CREAM returns by public demand too! Finally, after the X Factor voting scandal, we’ll be hosting the ‘Have you got the DJ Factor’ competition, where we’ll be giving some lucky wannabe DJs the chance to get involved behind the decks for their 30 minutes of fame (without having to text in!!) All entrants must email email@example.com to register. Oh, and Fancy Dress wise, well, it’s an ANYTHING GOES policy – so where whatever you bliddin’ well like!! Maybe treat your favourite Together outfit of 2007 to a trip to the laundrette and come in that, or why not break the bank on something new, borrowed or blue...? It is the birthday after all.
