CLUBS – Get set for 80s-style rave at Arches

When Acid House started to gain prominence in the mid 1980s, its squelchy synths and hypnotic rhythms were embraced by ravers as revelatory.

It came out of Chicago and was pioneered by acts such as Phuture, whose 1987 EP Acid Tracks inspired a generation.

A quarter of a century later, Streetrave are still selling out Acid House parties thanks to a resurgence and acts such as Skrillex and LMFAO taking its principles in new directions.

This enormous night at The Arches features Danny Rampling, pictured, and Shades Of Rhythm (who will play live), alongside Michael Kilkie, Zammo and Iain Boney Clark.

n Streetrave: The Acid House Party, Saturday, The Arches, 10pm-3am, £15.

Not every weekend presents the opportunity to get down with some sweet soul music in a setting like this.

The Pollok Ex-Serviceman's Club is the epitome of the traditional working man's club that is sadly in decline across the country, a setting that provides kitsch factor but is also just a friendly joint to hang out.

DJs Fraser Dunn and Felonius Munk, presenters of Soulful Allsorts on Subcity Radio, have been doing this for years, so expect righteous Soul, Motown and R&B and drams cheaper than the tackiest student club imaginable.

Birthday News

Bad News, a ribcage-rattling riot of bass-heavy dubstep, reggae and hip-hop, crash-landed in The Arches last January and were an instant success.

A year on, they take to Hope Street's Make Do for their first birthday party, their initial aim of bringing more soundsystem culture to Glasgow arguably accomplished.

Not ones to rest on their laurels, they have assembled a line-up fitting of the occasion. London trio Dark Sky head north with their experimental electronica, Mancunian boy wonder Paleman brings his jazz and world music-inspired jams, while regulars Noface and i AM's Beta get it started.
