Tomorrow night at La Cheetah (where else?) Keith Tucker, one of the Motor City's foremost electronic figures, will deliver an exclusive "History of Detroit Electro" set, taking in more than 20 years of techno and its many offshoots.
Tucker has been DJing since the early 80s. He broke through 10 years later under the alias Aux 88 and has been rightfully regarded as a Detroit legend ever since.
Expect to hear plenty of May, Atkins and Saunderson as well as those who took their pioneering sound and ran with it.
l La Cheetah Club presents Motor City Electronics with Keith Tucker, tomorrow, La Cheetah Club, 11pm – 3am, £10
IN celebration of its 10th anniversary, Merchant Square's Metropolitan Bar is going all Ibiza on us.
Café Mambo resident Pete Gooding brings his polished Balearic beats alongside local house mainstays Fox MacLeod, Scott Strachan and Stuart McCorrisken, and there'll be a dazzling array of fire breathers, burlesque acts and those ribbon dancers that hang from the ceiling.
Sounds like a fine warm- up for the Commonwealth Games opening ceremony.
l Metropolitan 10th Birthday Bash, Saturday, Metropolitan Bar, 6pm – 3am, free
TEA and biscuit stands, bizarre potato drawings and non-stop five hour sets: Mr Scruff's gigs have to be seen to be believed.
Not content with combining every genre under the sun in a glorious musical melting pot, he also provides the visual accompaniment: more often than not his own doodles of potatoes and speakers.
If that all sounds a little cutesy, the tunes are quite the opposite – an outstandingly-curated mash-up of jazz, soul, hip hop, funk, disco, deep house, reggae, dubstep, afrobeat, latin, electrofunk and obscure gems that defy categorisation.
l Mr Scruff, Chambre 69, Saturday, 10pm – 3am, £15
THERE are parallels to be drawn between Glasgow and Sao Paolo: they're both gritty, working class cities with wild creative streaks and explosive dance cultures.
It's from the Southern Hemisphere's New York that Optimo's latest guest hails from.
Trepanado is described as having an "almost scary knowledge and passion" for music. Combining disco, latin-infused funk and a myriad of other styles, it doesn't even need to be said that Optimo's crowd are going to go off their nut for him.
l Optimo presents Trepanado, Sunday, Sub Club, 11pm – 3am, £tbc
