Club AntiChrist has launched a few daring ideas in its 8 years, and one of its hands-down winners must be last December’s ‘Not New Year’s Eve’ party. Held a couple nights ahead of Hootenanny, the event not only silenced doubters – who thought clubland couldn’t be tempted to break with tradition and have its last blow-out before December 31st – but did so in spectacular style, as for the first time AntiChrist presented a grand 10 zones – and still claimed a capacity crowd!
The pioneering party served to ring in one phenomenal year for AC, during which each and every planned date has been extended to 10 zones and sold out. There seems no better way to celebrate the success as 2012 now draws to a close than with another ‘Not New Year’s Eve’ party this December 28th.
Once again, the idea is to give year-round hedonists a last chance to party away from the crowds, costs and alcohol casualties associated with venturing outside on December’s annual amateurs night. This time however, there’s a twist; AC is inviting avowed decadents and deviants to swap that nasty post-New Year’s night bus ride with the A&E-bound for a trip into its own twisted hospital on the 28th, as it presents a massive medical-themed party!
In the (operating) THEATRE OF SINS Scottish headiners Surgyn promise to ‘surgically reconstruct the face of electronic music’, after Method Cell have knocked it out cold with some precisely applied blow-to-the-head industrial beats and synths. Performing feats of magic and escapology learned inside padded-cells, Grindshow Massacre are the madhouse escapees who ran away to join the circus, while temperature raising temptresses Marnie Scarlet (crazy lady of fetish cabaret, clad in straitjacket and restraints of her own stunning design) and Satan’s Strip Show (residents at the AC asylum, presenting striptease equal parts sick ‘n’ sexy) are just what the doctor ordered! Incurable medical fetishists are referred to renowned domina and performer Mistress Olivia’s ‘Medical Vomitorium’ show, and any audience members squeamish of blood are best advised to look away when Sarge, Mad Alan and Friends take the stage to see out the year with a live suspension!
Downstairs in the PUREFUCKINGINDUSTRIAL ward, the beats will be meted out to industrial junkies in need of treatment right through til 6am. Doctors on duty on December 28th are DJs Hive (Vampire Party, Belgium), Jo The Waiter (Global Citizen), Steve Nine and special guest Steve Weeks (Slimelight) – and with PFI now boasting its own self-contained bar, lounge and seated smoking area there’s plenty of space for patients to recuperate between doses of bass on the dance floor!
Upstairs, DJs D.Void, Vade Retro, and FrankieD fill AC’s regular prescription of post-punk, alt. and goth anthems in THE HELLFIRE ROOM, and after Theatre clubbers can experience an experimental therapy, as brand new room THE HOLE offers 80s and electro regression between 2am and 6am.
The sofabed and complimentary condom-equipped COUPLE’S DARKROOM caters to couples who can’t wait til they get home to get some sexual healing – and for kinky patrons craving some hurting THE DEVIL’S PLAYROOM is fully equipped with Playpenz dungeon equipment, with house Mistress Rebekka Raynor dishing out the stern bedside manner.
Finally for convalescing, conversing and enjoying a nice cuppa, THE CHILLOUT ROOM lowers the volume and lays on plenty of seating, plus Thai food (a guaranteed cut above your average hospital grub!) and free tea and coffee, served by AC’s saucy maid service after 3am!
