EVERY SATURDAY

 11 PM, £3

An awe inspiring burst of shallow 80s music, feat. legitimately good & BAD records from Phil Collins, Tina Turner, Huey Lewis & The News, Whitney Houston, Prince, The Cure & more. A crowd surfin’ John Hughes lovin’ footloose journey into the sounds of Patrick Bateman’s Sony Walkman.

Welcome to Brighton’s favourite 80s party, “It is still 1985”, a footlose journey into the Sony Walkman of Patrick Bateman. Like stepping into a John Hughes movie ‘It is still 1985’ captures the feeling of the decade that brought you legimately great & legimately terrible pop music all in one epic party every Saturday at The Haunt. With a wild crowd of young partygoers who mostly don’t remember the 80s firsthand, prepare to delve into a world of innapropriate dance moves & a whole heap of fun at what is widely regarded as Brighton’s most popular & most fun night.

OUR MUSIC POLICY

It Is Still 1985 seeks to earnestly capture the essence of the slick, superficial, overblown decade that American Psycho’s Patrick Bateman so thoroughly represented. Rather than just being amused by the vapid radio rock of the 80s, we want to embrace the shallow music of those times with the full emotion of someone who has truly invested in the epic air grab that became so synonymous with the power ballad music videos of the era. The night also aims to celebrate the great alternative pop music of the 1980s like The Cure, New Order & Kate Bush but (unusually for a night largely filled with hipster twenty somethings) we thoroughly invest in the sounds that live on Patrick Bateman’s Sony Walkman such as Huey Lewis & The News, Whitney Houston & Phil Collins, and we are (with only the slightest hint of irony) prepared to dig deeper into the well of superficial emotion and with a straight face, (or possibly very emotional face) play records by the likes of Toto, Foreigner, Bonnie Tyler, Kenny Loggins, & even (once you are suitably drunk) prepared to force you to slow dance to Chris De Burgh’s “Lady In Red”. There is no question 1985 is prepared to go beyond the boundaries of good taste and we are very thankful to our audience of discerning party goers who are fully prepared to put their cool credentials aside each and every time they attend to make the event epic on a weekly basis.

OUR HISTORY

Created as an occasional party back in 2004, “it is still 1985” saw its first weekly outings in Brighton’s exciting underground venue New Hero in 2008, becoming a Brighton cult sensation, we packed the club out for nearly 2 years straight every single Saturday with an array of exceptionally enthusiastic cool young people that took time off from being trendy to relish an opportunity to unleash a series of inappropriate dance moves to an uninhibited soundtrack of 80s joy. After leaving New Hero we put on sold out events at Coalition and Concorde 2 before settling on a new home as the flagship night of what has since become Brighton’s best alternative independent venue, the old converted main screening room of the ABC Cinema in Pool Valley Coach Station (opposite the iconic Brighton Pier) now known as The Haunt (www.thehauntbrighton.co.uk).

Since moving to The Haunt, we have run a further 5 years solid of sold out parties every single Saturday night since February 2011, creating a phenomenon of 80s power unrivalled by any other night in the city. As well as being renowned for putting on the best New Years Eve party in the city for the last 7 years, Brighton residents know that a visit to ‘It is still 1985″ at The Haunt on a Saturday is a reliably brilliant slice of 80s heaven, with a discerning crowd that temporarily put their good taste on hold for an evening of power grabs, knee slides and the kind of dance moves not seen since the club scene in the movie Scarface, or at least the background of a mid 80s Top Of Pops episode. Although every Saturday night sees queues, we always try to get everyone in and usually succeed if you don’t mind waiting a little during our busier periods (people normally do even in the worst weather, as it’s worth the wait), however we are now for the first time ever offering a priority entry guest list!
