It's On The Beach, London's 17th best clubnight this Friday. Get in! It's an all-00s special. Yes!
Here are some words about it:
This decade is dangerously close to expiration. You can tell because a lot of magazines, websites and Channel 4-affiliated TV stations are listing things in order of merit.
There is only one worthy way to mark this event - an OTB dedicated to the 00s, playing only songs released between Saturday 1 January 2000 and Thursday 31 December 2009.
This is obviously going to be wonderful, but we need your help more than ever to create a brilliant playlist. Please don’t be shy with decade-specific requestst: firstname.lastname@example.org
Get down early because we’re dead excited about all the incredible songs we’re going to play.
£3 before 11pm, £4 afterwards.

Here’s a Facebook group that will probably be killed once we’ve got lots of ‘fans’, get bigheaded, and no longer feel the need to foster some-half assed idea of a community: http://is.gd/20koU
