In what is simultaneously the greatest event I’ve ever seen and a harsh reminder of how old I truly am, Galaxion is teaming up with Restricted Entertainment and Club 23 to host an 80’s-themed club night honoring the 21st anniversary of Street Fighter 2. Yes, you read that correctly: everyone’s favorite arcade fighting franchise/allowance eater is celebrating their 21st anniversary this year. And yes, you read the other part right too: there’s going to be a kick-ass party to honor it!
Galaxion is no stranger to throwing video-game-themed parties, having previously hosted a bash honoring the 25th anniversary of Outrun complete with neon outfits, vintage arcade games, console games, and DJs spinning retro 80’s New Wave, punk and 8-bit tunes, and Fancy Footwork promises more of the happy three way marriage between nostalgia, amazing music and alcohol.

Where: Club 23, 23 West Cordova, Vancouver, BC
DJs:Manos, DJ Pandemonium, DJ Vortex
