Our friends at The Flying Duck are celebrating their fifth birthday in the only way they know how: throwing a typically twee soiree that pays homage to cult director Wes Anderson.
Besides the obligatory cake and the midnight toast (yes, the bread kind) that is the Duck's signature, there promises to be a feast of indie frolics.
The soundtrack will be the classic slow-mo 1960s pop that is a staple of Anderson's films, with a smattering of the Portuguese David Bowie covers that made The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou so memorable.
Patrons are encouraged to come as the Anderson character of their choice – be it Gwyneth Paltrow's fur coat and eyeliner heavy Margot Tenenbaum, the George Clooney-voiced Fantastic Mr Fox or Owen Wilson's heavily-bandaged Francis from The Darjeeling Limited.
Most exciting is their attempt to drag along the legendary Bill Murray, who has appeared in most of Anderson's films.
At the time of writing the Facebook campaign We'll Get The Bill has attracted a modest 602 "likes" – perhaps a good thing if it is to remain an indie concern, but certainly not conducive to Murray actually turning up.
If you are reading this, Mr Murray, you know what you have to do.
l The Flying Duck's 5th Birthday: Go Wes!, The Flying Duck, tomorrow, 11pm – 3am, £5/discount negotiable with costume.
PERHAPS the only birthday party this year that could upstage the Flying Duck's trundles on tomorrow, as the Subbie welcomes Nottingham producer Lone as part of its extended 25th party.
His latest album, Galaxy Garden, released on R&S Records, is his most accomplished work to date, having received high praise from mainstream and underground figures alike.
Citing Edinburgh duo Boards of Canada as a major influence, warped, blissed-out melodies, 1980s funk and heavy Chicago house beats combine to make Lone's brand of electronica a hazy, ecstatic delight.
He will be joined by one half of Lazer Sword, the first act to have their record released on the Numbers label. Lando Kal, or Antaeus Lando Roy to give him his Sunday name, makes freaked-out, complex house comprising of dense synths and drum machines and creeping basslines.
A San Franciscoan, he has ended up in Berlin via New York, and if you are a Numbers fancier you will find a lot to like here.
Ben Martin kicks the night off, bringing a few choice cuts from the likes of HaHaHa, Mia Dora and Raksha – all rising Glaswegian DJs on his High Sheen label.
l Lone (live) and Lando Kal, Sub Club, tomorrow, 11pm-3am, £8.
Simon Stokes is one of those few people who has managed to utilise YouTube to their advantage.
While the rest of us have been losing years of our lives to its endless procession of funny dog videos, Stokes was posting clips of his impressive live techno creations.
This quickly attracted gig offers and the attention of record labels, before heavyweights like Carl Cox and Laurent Garnier declared themselves impressed.
Witness Stokes' mastery in the flesh at Strictly Tech-no, a new night that revolves wholly around techno and tech-house.
It is on Saturday at Chambre 69 and also features Scott Byrne, of secretive after-hours chaps Substanz Underground.
There is also a pre-party at The Courtyard from 2pm if you want to make a day of it.
l Strictly Tech-no, Chambre 69, Saturday, 9pm-3am, £8.
