Last week, we wore ourselves out so much on Thursday night with JD Samson that we were disappointingly ill the rest of the weekend, and the shoes didn't get put to their full potential.
There doesn't seem to be too much exciting new fun to be had this weekend, but if we do go out, these will probably be the places.
Tonight we're torn between 2 very cool nights. If you're south of the river, then you could much worse than heading to Basement Jaxx's very own night, Inside Out, at Jamm (formely Bar Lorca) in Brixton. This monthly night plays jaxxhouse, bashment, broken soul, punky grime, asian funk and electro, and with Felix & Simon themselves on the decks, you could pretty much hear anything. It opens at 9.30, is a measly £6 and runs till 3am. We very much hope they'll be dressed like in our photo.
If you're not feeling Brixton, then the best of the rest is happening down in Hoxton where you can't move for electro nights and silly hairstyles. The weekly Our Disco night at Plastic People on Curtain Road is always a good bet for a night out if you like your sleazy electro and punk, and don't mind not really being able to see round the club as you dance away. This week it's a special DFA Records night which with the likes of Black Dice & LCD Soundsystem on their books, is quite frankly going to rock. Last time we went there was a toilet sat on the street and someone set fire to a skip outside, but we got to see firemen so we didn't really mind. Once inside, Scottish remixers Optimo played such a blinding set that a fire was but a distant memory.
Saturday night and we're heading to one place and one place alone - the ominously named Pleasure Unit in Bethal Green. There enlies Unskinny Bop, a night designed for disco dancing opportunities for girls, gays and misfits. Quite frankly, any night that plays us Shampoo, Girls Aloud, Elastica, Bikini Kill, Kenickie, and Jay Z does not need to ask us twice to be there, which is handy as they haven't asked us once. Have no fear though, as not even the thought of Chico performing an original song tomorrow night on X-Factor will keep us away from this one. The venue is small and it's the first night since April, so we advise you get there early tomorrow. Doors open at 9 and it's only £4 in. You, my disco dollies, have absolutely no excuse.
Whatever you do with your weekend, have fun and let us know if you go anywhere good on firstname.lastname@example.org so we can check it out too!
