Guest DJ Paul Rains (Tigercats/Allo Darlin')

Welcome return to HDIF for Paul Rains of Allo Darlin' and Tigercats fame. Paul last DJ-ed at our NYE party at Nambucca where he played a superb set of indie pop, eighties pop and soul, and we're very happy that he's back at the club in September. Looking forward to finding out what he has in store for us.

Don't forget that you can get the night tube home from HDIF at The Phoenix. Both the Victoria and the Central line, which serve nearby Oxford Circus, run all night.

Reviews of How Does It Feel To Be Loved?:

"This hugely popular night knows there are few better ways to enter the new year than with a soundtrack of classic sixties soul and the most danceworthy janglepop and shimmering indie tunes." - Time Out

“A speakeasy for anyone who suspects that their life is one big Smiths song' - Big Issue
'Absolutely the best night in the whole of the world!” - The Guardian
“Much-loved indie pop institution” - The Quietus
“Legendary indie club” - NME
"How Does It Feel To Be Loved has, since 2002, easily been one of London’s best club nights. Its unpretentious and welcoming nature, often fuelled with everything from Belle & Sebastian and Orange Juice to Tamla Motown and Dusty Springfield, swipes away any negative connotations our capital has for being a cold, brutal and rather heartless place." - Music OMH
"With a tag-line of ‘From the Smiths to the Supremes’ it’s the music policy that shapes How Does It Feel To Be Loved?; indie-pop and soul draw a quietly hip bunch of revelers. Best of all they are just so friendly; no aggro or posturing here – it’s all crooked smiles and handclaps." - For Folk's Sake
"With a decade of great nights under its belt How Does it Feel to Be Loved? is one of London's most enduring and influential underground indie get-togethers." Flavorpill
