Baby In Vain - med

It’s time for the last Ja Ja Ja Club Night of the season! If you want to have little pre-party, Iceage and Francobollo are playing on Monday, followed up by Karin Park and Darkness Falls later in the week. Thursday you’ll be partying with us, of course, and if you want to continue the party Yagya is spinning tunes on Friday!
