Fort St. Fencing Club ft. Danny T
feat. Danny T (Sweat it Out/Aus)
Red Rum Touring presents a recent new night to their stable. A night dedicated to those who like to dress sharp as a sword and fence with like minded people in one of Auckland's most plush night clubs, Flight Lounge.
So it is the end of a long year, and we have Australia's golden boy Danny T from Ajax's Sweat it Out Records to bring Fort St to its knees.
With new management, a more forward-thinking approach to the music policy, and a revamp of the place overall, one of everyone's favourite venues has given itself a whole new breath of fresh air. Whether you're already a regular or you haven't ventured down in a while this definitely a night to be spent at that side of Fort St.
If you want the best of house, disco and electronica make sure you come have a duel with us as we will be going late into the night on Flight's percolating sound system.
