There’s a T. Rex disco party coming to The Cluny in Newcastle this March. Get it on!

There’s little doubt that Marc Bolan was one of the most significant UK pop stars of the 1970s with a run of singles with his band T.Rex that are among the greatest ever released: ‘Jeepster’, ‘Telegram Sam’, ‘Metal Guru’, Hot Love’, 20thCentury Boy’, ‘Get It On’ and plenty more besides. He’s mostly associated with the glam-rock movement but he also played a significant role in developing trippy acid folk and space age funk and was even an inspiration to the first wave of punks. This night will see DJs spinning all of his classics, alongside album tracks and rarities, and there will also be plenty of visuals (including TV appearances), a raffle and maybe even some rare vintage posters. If you were born to boogie then stick a big gold star next to Saturday 23 March and make a date.

T-Rex Disco Party, Saturday 23 March, The Cluny, Ouseburn, Newcastle, 5pm-12am, £6. thecluny.com
