On Thursday last week, we ventured over to the other side of the M62 to launch Crazy Pedro’s, Liverpool.
Of course, the night was full of rad pizzas, eloquent cocktails and copious amounts of tequila for all. We were pleasantly surprised as the people of Liverpool all showed up on time; so the venue filled up within half an hour to enjoy the craziness.
We’ve loved every second of working on this launch – Liverpool is such a great city full of incredible people that we’ve been fortunate enough to get to know better.
Check out the action from the night – Hasta La Pizza Baby!

To start off our weekly W Series, we’d like to talk about the feature length film directed by Javi Senz, international film producer, that we are proud to have worked with.
“Manchester Keeps On Dancing” is a remarkable social study of a culture that helped put Manchester on the worldwide map as it documents the arrival of House music into Manchester from Chicago in the 1980’s, through to the Acid House explosion of 1988 and the following 30 years of its phenomenal rise to today.
After the explosion of House music at the hacienda, it encouraged a youth culture. A subculture to the miserable overground and a movement happened underground. Every possible angle of creativity was created from discussions on the dance floor at the hacienda; bands were formed, and those bands then went on to find a manager, who then went on to find a designer to make their album cover, who then went on to find the video-maker to make their music video. That movement was all about doing something that was different and feeling proud to be different because you were special, it attracted people to do creative things. Thus creating a catalyst in Manchester that has uniquely continued to this day 30 years on.
What happened next? Everything happened next, you can still feel this unique buzz in the city today.
We are very lucky, as an agency, to be in the middle of this culture as our clients are those innovative creators constantly regenerating and carrying it on. The party that keeps on dancing …
Featured in the film is Krysko, Matthew Krysko, director of We Are Indigo and resident DJ at The Warehouse Project. We gave him a quick Q and A on our velvet couch before he heads to London for the premiere.
Manchester should appoint a ‘night tsar’ to help it become a 24-hour city to rival the likes of London and Berlin, leading figures from the nightlife industry say.
Warehouse Project and Parklife boss Sacha Lord-Marchionne is leading the Night Time Industries Association’s calls for an official champion for the city’s clubbing, music, food and drink and cultural offering.
The Night Time Commission also includes Trof Group founder Adelaide Winter, Greater Manchester Police’s former head of licensing Darrell Butterworth, Ground Control managing director Jon Drape, Gemma Gore, founder of PR and events agency We Are Indigo and former CityLife journalist Sarah Walters. Urban Splash founder Tom Bloxham and Live Nation’s chief operating officer Paul Latham are also advising.
Alan Miller, chairman and founder of the NTIA, said: “The sheer scale of the night time economy in Greater Manchester deserves representation, and the impressive commission that Sacha has put together will provide a bedrock of experience to call upon as the issues and opportunities within this industry arise.”
