As the intro to this video says, there’s always one guy at every club night who actually remains committed to the claim that he’s all about the music. So committed, in fact, that he often shows up by himself, dancing well into the night, paying no mind to those (quizzical looks) around him. In the case of London, England, his name is the Dancing Misanthrope. His real name is Alan Wen. He doesn’t smoke. He doesn’t do drugs. He just sniffs out great parties and dances all night. But there’s more to the story than just those facts, so read up on the chap here on Vice’s Thump blog and catch their video interview with him below.
