There was a big party going on north of the river last night, with the Actionettes hosting their ‘Night of the Shimmying Dead’ Halloween special at the Buffalo Bar, a basement club right next to Highbury and Islington tube station.

The night featured live sets by the Werewandas, Ani of The Pipettes playing a DJ set, The Action Men, limbo dancing and, of course, two sets from the Actionettes.
