Detriot DJ Jeff Mills is here to entertain us on Sunday

We've been waiting for The Last Big Weekend for quite a while: ever since it was announced that those titans of noise Mogwai would be headlining.

Since then, the line-up has expanded to include a host of local institutions and cult names from abroad.

On Sunday you can prepare to have your ears caressed by LCD Sound-system frontman James Murphy's sumptuous disco and house DJ set, then be blasted by Kanye West-collaborating producer Hudson Mohawke's vivid, vibrant rave jams.

Then there's Jeff Mills, the Detroit techno pioneer whose hypnotic beats will take you to space and back, and Jackmaster, who'll make you dance through the soles of your shoes.

Before that, on Saturday, buzz band Honeyblood warm up for psychedelic hip-hop outfit Young Fathers, Kilsyth's happiest band The Twilight Sad, and post-rock giants Mogwai.

Oh, and there's also sets from the likes of Golden Teacher, Optimo, The Wedding Present and James Holden scattered across the weekend. What an absolute treat.

l The East End Social's Last Big Weekend, Saturday and Sunday, Richmond Park, 1pm -10pm, £38.50/£70



Let's party

IN advance of the Manchester-based Warehouse Project's season starting, they've teamed up with legends Harri and Dom for an almighty pair of parties.

The first is on Saturday at the Subbie, with the Subculture residents playing back to back with their peers from the famed Warehouse Project. The second is in Manchester next month on the series' opening night: an meeting that should certainly warrant a weekend trip south.

Speaking of which, Sensu's second boat party of the summer departs tomorrow night for a cruise with a difference.

They've got Bristol banger merchant Eats Everything on hand, alongside residents Junior and Barry Price, for an all-night session of classic house, techno and UK bass.

l Sensu Boat Party with Eats Everything, tomorrow, Glasgow Science Centre, £28

l Subculture Vs The Warehouse Project, Saturday, Sub Club, 11pm-3am, £10

Reggae double

REGGAE heads never had it as good as they do this weekend, with a deadly duo of skank-fests lasting straight through until Sunday.

Tomorrow night at the Poetry Club, Argonaut Sounds welcome Krak In Dub, the veteran Parisian MC formerly of the prolific Mas I Mas crew, while the Southside's newest venue The Rum Shack hosts a bass-powered weekender with top international MCs.

Tomorrow night it's Cornel Campbell and Kingston, Jamaica's Contractor on the mic, Saturday has Mim Suleimum live and London's Tippa Irie, climaxing on Sunday with the Glasgow Gospel Choir, Hectorrr & Friends, and food from the incredible Babu Street Kitchen.

l Glasgow Roots and Culture Weekender tomorrow-Sunday, 7pm-late, free

l Argonaut Sounds with Fogata Sounds, tomorrow, The Poetry Club, 10pm-2am, £5
