PUSH set for last Astoria party despite Manumission cancellation

Indie night vows to send off iconic venue on Thursday (Jan 15)

PUSH set for last Astoria party despite Manumission cancellation
Organisers of what will now be the last event to take place at the London Astoria have stressed that their night will go ahead this Thursday (January 14) despite Manumission cancelling its event in the venue's main hall.

The Ibiza club promoters were due to host the last party at the venue before it is demolished to make way for a new railway station, but pulled out last week claiming they did not have enough time to organise the event.

However chiefs at PUSH, who host the regular Saturday night club in the venue's smaller room Astoria 2, insist they are all set to give the venue its final send off.

"After a weekend of speculation following Manumission's cancellation , PUSH would like to re-iterate that their party is going ahead at the Astoria 2," organisers told NME.COM.

They added, "This will be the final event in the building. Cajun Dance Party are playing live and some of London's best young artists – Mystery Jets, The Horrors and Lightspeed Champion are coming down to play a few records. We hope to see you there."

The last event in the venue's main room will now take place on Wednesday (January 14), with Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly's Sam Duckworth organising a 'Demolition Ball' featuring The Automatic, Frank Turner and My Vitriol among others.
