Smirnoff Electric Cabaret

  • Smirnoff Original Nights® is pleased to announce the Manchester debut of the genre-busting Smirnoff Electric Cabaret® at the Manchester Academy on November 27th 2008, for another unforgettable celebration of originality in nightlife. Defying the laws of a conventional night out, the event will feature electro-pop crossover king Sam Sparro, ably supported by Pat Mahoney & Juan Maclean, Das Pop, Devil’s Gun and a host of jaw-dropping cabaret acts. Serving up an utterly delicious and powerful blend of pop, soul and funk, Sam Sparro’s debut single "Black & Gold", dubbed ‘the disco anthem of the year’, stormed both charts and dance floors with his signature sound. As part of LCD Soundsystem, Pat Mahoney Mahoney will be performing an exclusive DJ set for Smirnoff Electic Cabaret whilst DFA label mate Juan Maclean celebrates 20 years of Acid House with a rare “Live Acid” set using a pair of Roland 303 Rhythm Masters; the old-school synthesisers that revolutionised dance music in the 80s and 90s. The night will also see Soulwax protégés Das Pop take to the stage. Three parts Belgian and one part Kiwi, the band's spirited guitar-pop is hummable, danceable and utterly infectious. Completing the sonic offering will be Devil’s Gun. Described by Music Week as “possessing the energy and style of an early Basement Jaxx, but with a broader musical palette”, the East-London duo’s hard hitting productions provide the perfect amalgamation of electro, breakbeat, house and gritty synths. At the event, guests will be encouraged to transform themselves for the night by delving into a fancy dress box and will also be introduced to out of the ordinary drinks experiences
