Join Ijebu Pleasure Club, as we farewell the Golden Dawn with one last tear-the-roof-off-the-mother-sucker gig.
This tiny stage of awesome is where we were born, so we're not going to let Matthew and the crew slip away quietly without paying our respects the only way we know how*.
With a special set reviving old favourites and debuting some new-old tunes, you'd better bring your dancing asses, and be prepared to leave them behind on the dance-floor.
