GUYS. I didn’t tell you about the Beatles night.

So a month or so ago it was the fiftieth anniversary of Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. The next night was Friday and a Hackney club planned a Sgt Pepper night, with DJs playing Beatles (and etc) tracks and a live band doing the whole album.

I went with my friends Violet and the Dark Lady and we were SUPER EXCITED. I love the Beatles and the Dark Lady is a superfan, as are her parents - she was almost named Rita because of the song (and Rita Hayworth). So I got this genuine 60s Sgt-Pepper-style jacket in pure white, and the Dark Lady did incredibly elaborate Twiggy eye make-up, and Violet got out her mod boots. We predrank and had pizza at theirs and headed to the club.

When we arrived the booths were full of late-middle-aged people, and the dancefloor had clumps of young people who’d dressed up like us. We got drinks and listened to Beatles tracks like Come Together, which I fucking adore, and talked about being feminist John Lennon fans and how your favourite Beatle changes as you age. It was great. We also noticed the guy who played Lord Percy on Blackadder in a booth.

Eventually the live band came on. first bad sign )
