The Big One

Size does matter... And to celebrate BUTT magazine’s return to print, all homosexuals with an inclination to dance will want to sashay on down to CLUB BUTT’s high-capacity, 7,500 square foot warehouse in East London this Saturday, November 26. The word on the street is: every unputdownable homosexual is coming out of the woodwork for it. So come down and show us what you got. Who doesn't like a big one?

Along with all the standard alcoholic beverages, the bar will be serving BUTT’s party beverage of choice, Club-Mate — it doesn’t leave you feeling tweaked and, more importantly, you won’t lose your hardon. Winos who arrive between 10 and 11 PM will be treated to free mulled wine, just like grandpa used to make. Mmmmmm… Yeah, it’s a rough and ready warehouse party, but guests can expect all the essentials, like coat check, top service from the bar, and plenty of loo access for their streams of pleasure.

Shaun from Prickimage has been working oh-so-hard to present a series of engay-ging short films for the night. Photographer Federico Martelli (who is a fantastic dancer in his own right) is going to wow us with his mesmerizing video installation which will perfectly capture our go-go foursome — Guido, Christopher, Kostya and Sancho — in all their booty-shaking glory. And if you haven’t already got your freak on to Ryan Smith’s BUTT mixtape, you really ought to… It kicks ass.

All in all, guys can expect an über-permissive atmosphere at CLUB BUTT. There is just one house rule: no photography. So leave your camera at home, girlfriend. There are a handful of presale tickets still left for pre-cummers, and they’re only for Buttheads who have a profile on this site. Go down, down, down for the nitty-gritty details on how to get one.

Holders of presale tickets get speedy boarding the night of the party, and — best of all — each presale ticket comes with a free issue of BUTT No. 29!

First, print out your Butthead profile from this site. If you’re not already a Butthead, you can sign up for free here. Then, head down to one of two East London locations — Dalston Superstore in Dalston or Expectations in Shoreditch — hand over your printout with your £10 cash (sorry all ticket sales are cash only, all sales are final and non-refundable). One ticket per Butthead, so if friends want to join, tell them to become a Butthead.

Dalston Superstore is at: 117 Kingsland High Street in London, E8 2PB. They are open Monday from 12 pm to 2:30 am, Tuesday through Thursday from 10 am to 2:30 am, Friday and Saturday from 10 am to 3 am, and then Sunday from 10 am until 2:30 am. For directions, check their Facebook page:

Expectations is at: 75 Great Eastern Street also in London, EC2A 3RY. They are open Monday through Friday from 11 am to 7 pm, on Saturday from 11 am to 8 pm, and Sunday from 12 to 5 pm. For directions, check their site:

Presale ends at 4 PM on Saturday afternoon or when tickets sell out, which ever comes first.


Entry is just £10 at the door. CLUB BUTT’s ginormous, virgin warehouse space is literally just around the corner from Cambridge Heath rail station at the intersection of Cambridge Heath Road and Hackney Road. That’s just a short walk from Bethnal Green tube, and an even shorter walk from Cambridge Heath rail station. One could also take the 26, 48, 55, 106, 254, 309, 388, 394, D3, or D4 bus there. It’s NOT at The Brit Oval in Lambeth.
