Headway 14th Birthday with Dr. RUBINSTEIN
Friday 4th May 2018


For our 14th Birthday (!), we're delighted to announce a DJ who's already smashed it at our sister night Missing Persons Club @ La Cheetah, Glasgow last May, and has since gone on to play Maximum Pressure @ SWG3 - Dr. Rubinstein! Marina Rubinstein loves to DJ, but even when she’s perched in the booth, weaving together an invigorating assortment of hypnotic acid, 90s rave and pumping techno, her mind is on the dancefloor.
