£773 raised for Cancer Research

We raised a whopping £773 for Cancer Research at Rusty Cage on Friday night. Abstract Dawn opened the event with a blinding set which went down a treat with our attendees. It was great to have so many people there and was a really fun event.

£370 raised for IronMountain Large Breed Rescue

Thank you to all who came down to Rusty Cage last night, we had a brilliant night and managed to raise £370.20 for IronMountain Large Breed Rescue.

New Merchandise Shop

Rusty Cage’s Little Shop of Grunge is now open for business! We are selling t-shirts and other items for people who are into grunge.

We raised £400

Thanks so much to everyone who came to Rusty Cage on Friday! We raised £400 for Trafford Cats Protection and I think everyone had a good time. The next night is on July 26th, watch this space for details.

Free shot at the next Rusty Cage!

The kind folks at Retro Bar have offered a free shot to those who arrive at the club before 10.30. With The Genitals starting at 10, I’m sure lots of you will be arriving in time to make use of this generous offer!

Another incentive to arrive early is that those who arrive before 10.30 will receive a raffle ticket to win a grungey prize!

Hope to see you all down there on the 22nd!

New website, upcoming clubnight

I have a rare free Saturday and  have finally got around to updating our Rusty Cage website. I’ve built it around WordPress so it’s less of a chore to update, and made it so you can subscribe to calendar events, and also buy tickets online. Woo! I hope you like it.

Our next event is on March 22nd at our home, Retro Bar, Sackville Street, Manchester. We’re raising money for Trafford Cats Protection this time, hopefully we’ll get a good amount to donate. We get a decent turnout every time but I’m hoping this one will be extra special.

It’s hard work but all worth it. I’m really grateful to everyone who DJs- nobody gets paid as it’s for charity, and everyone always does such a brilliant job.

I have been searching all day for a letter I received from Nancy McCallum, who is Layne Staley’s mother. She wrote to me after we raised a lot of money for the Layne Staley Fund a few years ago. It was lovely to receive as I have always been such a fan of Layne. Anyway, I transcribed the letter for our old website, but never took a photo of the original. I’d really like to find it and share it with you on here. I’ll keep looking!

The next thing on my list is to migrate the Facebook profile over to being a Facebook page. It’s taking forever to download the data and I’ve got a horrible feeling it’s all going to go belly up.

Hope to see you all on the 22nd!
