We're celebrating the end of our first year of doing the HDIF Children's Disco at the Phoenix with a special pretend NYE party - on Sunday Dec 30th. Remember when you used to see in the new year at your favourite club? Relive those happy times with our daytime NYE disco, from midday to 4pm, with the bells being rung at 2pm to see in the new year. Will it make any sense? Probably not. WIll it be lots of fun? Absolutely yes. We've held the HDIF Children's disco at the End Of The Road festival for the last seven years, and they've been lots and lots of fun. We play our usual mixture of indie pop and soul, and the discos are a wonderful opportunity for kids to bop around to The Smiths, Belle & Sebastian, Allo Darlin', The Ramones and more, and for their parents to bop along with them. It can often be hard to get out to club nights once you become a parent, so these discos are as much a chance for the parents to go out dancing as they are for the kids. We also want to provide an alternative to the many rave-themed kids discos that are on offer in London. If you'd rather dance to your favourite indie pop and Motown songs with your children, then we're the disco for you! Music will be played at a reasonable level. We'll make sure that the songs aren't played too loud, but if you're worried about volume please do bring along ear defenders for your kids. We play: The Smiths * The Supremes * Belle & Sebastian * Dusty Springfield * The Magnetic Fields * Love * Orange Juice * The Ronettes * Aztec Camera * Beach Boys * The Temptations * Velvet Underground * Felt * The Shangri-Las * Allo Darlin' * Otis Redding * The Field Mice * Dexys Midnight Runners * Camera Obscura * The Four Tops * The Go-Betweens * Tammi Terrell * Jens Lekman * Jonathan Richman * Le Tigre * Pat Powdrill * The Sea Urchins * Sleater-Kinney * Os Mutantes * Neutral Milk Hotel * The Left Banke * The Associates * Martha Reeves & The Vandellas
