About the event

This event is at Wedgewood Rooms, Southsea

It’s 1989. Manchester. A frenzy of drugs, beats and bucket hats. Illegal raves. Acid parties. Just jumping up and down in a field and throwing two fingers to Thatcher. Remember it?

Because we don’t. We weren’t even born. But Ian was. And Ian does remember. We’ve got f*ck all now (Ian tells us). So, we’re going back to 1989. We’re gonna neck a brown biscuit. We’re gonna get off our peanuts. We’re gonna bounce around like idiots. And Ian’s going to show us how. We’re mad fer it. And you will be too. Let’s party.

Using anecdotes from their 46 year old friend Ian about the glory days, In Bed With My Brother naively and hysterically attempt to recreate the party: a messy, multimedia mish-mash of clowning, dance routines and lipsyncing. Scored by Ian’s favourite tracks from the era.
