Clubtasm: This weekend

If you don't want to see Nikki get evicted tonight and you're planning on a bit of dancing and drinking then these are this week's suggestions.

Friday:

Club Popjustice: Our favourite pop website, Popjustice, has been taking over the wheel's of steel at Wardour Street's Trash Palace for the last few months, and after checking it out a few week's ago we think we can thorougly recommend it. If you just want a fun night out dancing to pop music you know and you don't know, then this is absolutely the place to go from 11pm for only £3. Check out playlists examples online.

Hang The DJ: If you're one of those people who squeal the loudest when you hear This Charming Man down your indie disco, then this night dedicated to the 'heartfelt, tender, yet hysterical lyrics' of Morrisey'. Andy Rourke and Mike Joyce themselves will be DJing alongside The Smyths - a tribute band. Could this sound any more Smiths intense? Hang The DJ is at Jamm in Brixton, costs £8 and is on from 9 til 4.

Saturday

Fabric: And if it's dance your after, then it's another cracking line-up at Fabric tonight with Ivan Smagghe heading things up at the underground meat dungeon. After recommending last Friday to y'all, we headed down ourselves to check out the wonders of Metronomy and Vitalic. Unfortunately tube delays and a queue to get in stopped us getting in in time to see Metronomy but Vitalic, wow, he certainly made up for it. Room 2 was packed to the rafters with people waiting for the headlining Chemical Brothers, but the techno sound of La Rock 01 warmed people up into a frenzy. Leaving the Chems to their business, The Filthy Dukes entertained us in Room 1 with a rousing selection of dance indie remixes.

Saturday though, and its another Frenchman set to tear up the dancefloor. Ivan Smagghe is half of dark electro duo Black Strobe and began his work as a DJ playing on the underground Parisian electoscene. A fan of "abstract noises and strange bleeping", his set at Fabric is sure to be twisted attack on the senses. Tickets are £15 and doors at 10.30pm.

Kinki: Or if it's dressing up that makes your night out, then head on down to Bloomsbury Bowling Alley's for another edition of Kinki. Rydell High vs Scorpio Rising is the theme with a no effort = no entry door policy. Expect pop, glam, electro and rocknroll music alongside bowling, karaoke, glittering biker boys, waitressdolls on wheels, twister, space hoppers and party games. Tickets are £8 from ticketweb.
