Le Grand fun with Goldfish at Arches

COULD you name anything Fedde Le Grand has released since 2006's all-conquering number one Put Your Hands Up 4 Detroit?

I didn't think so, but despite a drop-off in commercial success since his first single, he's known as one of the most influential European electro house DJs.

The Dutch supremo headlines those famous Arches on Saturday night, and he's supported by the South African house duo Goldfish.

Playing live and utilising a variety of instruments on stage, they're a little more Balearic than Le Grand's bombastic electro, which should make for a pleasing contrast on the night.

The same night sees Example, of rap game fame, playing an exclusive DJ set for fan club members in the adjacent arch.

Expect a journey through the many electronic styles that make up his varied, albeit unlistenable, output.

Saved at Slam

EVERY weekend's big at the Sub Club, but this one has all the hallmarks of a classic.

It starts tomorrow with Slam's monthly night Return to Mono.

This month it's a party celebrating the 100th release by house label Saved Records.

Launched by Nic and Mark Fanciulli, it has been putting out high-quality independent dance music since 2004, and this centenary release compiles the best of that.

Nic and Slam team up to mark the occasion with their signature deep house and driving techno.

Saturday's subculture is a rare one. With residents Harri and Dom off gallivanting, they've drafted in Young Marco and Olaf Boswijk, the residents from Amsterdam's similarly-minded Trouw, to cover.

Much like the Subbie, Trouw is the beating heart of Amsterdam's hedonistic club scene, so we're in capable hands indeed.

And on Tuesday, the scamps that run iAM have Sensu head honcho Barry going back to back with resident Kappa.

l Return To Mono, tomorrow, Sub Club, 11pm-3am, £12

l Subculture Trouw Takeover, Saturday, Sub Club, 11pm-3am, £10

l iAM with Barry Prince, Tuesday, Sub Club, 11pm-3am, £5

NME aftershow

THE Record Factory, down the bottom of Byres Road, hosts the NME Awards Tour aftershow on Tuesday.

NY veterans Interpol headline the annual extravaganza, which also has Temples and their 60s psychedelia, garage duo Royal Blood and indie poppers Circa Waves on the bill.

It's the Marc Bolan-esque Temples who'll be DJing this official afterparty, so prepare for all the velvet jacket-clad indie debauchery that comes with them.

Super troupers

SCOTLAND aside, has any other country produced so much brilliant, whimsical indie pop as Sweden?

The folks behind the Swedish-themed Super Trouper might disagree - they've got a full night of classics from The Concretes, Lykke Li, Peter Bjorn & John, Robyn, The Knife...and they might chuck an Abba one in there too.

The Kitchen bar is given over to Sweden's wee brother Finland, but given that Lordi is their most famous export that's maybe best avoided.

On the same night, The Duck's sister bar Stereo hosts Cryptiq's first party of 2014, with Copenhagen's CTRLS and his futuristic techno.

And it would be remiss not to mention St Paddy's Day on Monday, which will see every bar from Sauchiehall Street to the Gallowgate rammed with Guinness-sloshing revelers painting the town green.

Campus, The Garage and the like are the perennial classics come last orders at your local Irish bar.

l Super Trouper, Saturday, The Flying Duck, 11pm-3am, £5

l Cryptiq with CTRLS, Saturday, Stereo, 11pm-3am, £8
