If it's a funeral- let's have the best funeral ever. So said James Murphy of LCD Soundsystem before the band's final Madison Square Garden show, and that sentiment seems entirely apt here.
After eight years of new bands, renowned guest DJs and indie antics, the last Pin Up Nights is upon us.
Thankfully, to distract from the inevitable outpouring of grief, the Pin Ups chaps have assembled a last night line-up to outdo even their own finest hour, when Frank McAvennie joined Aidan Moffat in the Flying Duck's DJ booth.
The kitchen will see acoustic sets from local heroes The Twilight Sad, Malcom Middleton (Moffat's former Arab Strap pal, inset) and former Delgados frontwoman Emma Pollock. In the club, Chemikal Underground's one-man lush pop sensation Miaoux Miaoux play live, joined by purveyors of "Total Pop" Sonny Marvello.
At the time of going to print, Jarvis Cocker has not yet reneged on his promise never to DJ again, but there will be souvenir Jarvis masks at the door to ensure his presence is felt nevertheless.
The event brings the curtain down on a night that always put fun at the forefront, in marked contrast to other indie clubs. The last weekend of the month will be a sadder time without it.

AS one institution is laid to rest, another hits a milestone. The Sub Club has been making people dance for 25 years, an achievement that is difficult to put into context.
It's not just that it's stayed open so long – the fact that it's still relevant, hasn't sold out, and continues to host the city's most respected underground club nights is remarkable.
Naturally, the party cannot be confined to one night, instead they will spread out over the month of April.
It all kicks off on Saturday, with the 18th birthday of Saturday night residency Subculture.
Harri and Domenic, above, will be playing tracks that have made their mark on Subculture over the years, alongside gems from their pre-residency days.
Perhaps not, though, as Domenic explains: "I have no idea what to expect.
"Every time I try to second guess how a night is going to go it usually goes 100% the other way."
The celebrations continue on Tuesday at I Am, when R&S Records' current golden boy Blawan descends the Jamaica Street steps.
He is the man behind Getting Me Down, Resident Advisor's track of 2011.
The following Friday sees the return of another top club night, but that's for next week.

LONDON'S most rock and roll night out (apparently) lands in Glasgow on Saturday, surrounded by a barrage of hype.
This Feeling features a DJ set from Liverpudlian indie heroes The Coral, and a line-up of four retro-rocking guitar bands.
There's The Janice Graham band, from Manchester, who according to their press release sound like "the mutant offspring of The Specials and The Happy Mondays", Brit Pop revivalists Sulk, Glaswegian funk and reggae from Selective Service, and danceable indie from Rosyth's The Draymin'.
