It's the season to party and this week sees two of the biggest parties of the season on consecutive nights at The Arches, and two hipster favourites – Supermax and Optimo at the Sub Club – vying to win the title of most relevant Boxing Day bash.
Your Christmas clubbing calendar kicks off with this festive-themed edition of Singles Night, a firm Flying Duck favourite.
Regulars Chris "Beans" Geddes and Andrew Divine spin the 7-inch singles from every conceivable genre and decade.
l Flying Duck Christmas Party, tomorrow, 11pm- 3am, free before 11, £5 after that.
After consuming your body weight in turkey and Quality Street on Christmas Day, take this opportunity to get active and lose a few lbs while placing your hands skywards to a varied spectrum of dance music.
The Arches' main room will be dominated by Dutchmen, with big room progressive trance from trio Dash Berlin and tech-trance from W&W.
In the dance arch, Londoner Michael Woods headlines alongside Bassjackers and Shermanology; the more house-y Alex Metric headlines the Playroom; and even in the cafe there is no respite as Ian McNab and Johnny Rea and ALBA ply their pounding hard trance.
l Colours Winter Party, The Arches, Boxing Day, 9.30pm -4am, £20.
There is barely time to recover from Colours before Inside Out takes over the same venue for a predictably chaotic rammy of techno and trance.
This time it will have a harder edge, with the previous night's house elements less prominent.
You are asked to wear white, as John O'Callaghan, Alex Kidd & Kutski, Judge Jules and DWX On Tour tear it up in typically riotous Inside Out style.
l Inside Out XL: White Party, The Arches, Tuesday Dec 27, 10pm-4am, £20.
JG Ballard's 1973 novel Crash is the most un-Christmassy of themes for a Boxing Day disco-fest, concerning as it does a group of people who are turned on by crashing cars.
If anyone can turn such a grubby concept into a high-energy all-night knees-up, then it is Der Supermax.
Book early because only 100 tickets will be available.
l Der Supermax Boxing Day Blowout, Blackfriars, Boxing Day, 9pm–2am, £10.
