Saturday Night : Sarah Nixey's in the house

Inspired by our fab night out last night at Do Dirt, we had a quick look about to see what else is going on this weekend and this is the best we could come up with.

Tonight we aren't leaving our sofa. Sorry Big Brother! Secret House! Aisleyne crying! Susie being patronising. What more could we want.

Tomorrow is where it's at though with the launch party of Good Luck Studio, a new night from boot-legger extrodinaire Freelance Hellraiser. Dj sets will come from the Hellraiser himself, as well as Grammy award winning producer Jacknife Lee. As well as DJing, the Hellraiser will playhis debut solo album live from 8, but the bit we're really excited about is Sarah Nixey making a surprise appearance along with her producer James Banbury. Unless you were at her support gig for Luke Haines late last year, this could be your first chance to hear some stunning electro-pop tunes from your old pin-up indie chick. First single The Collector dazzles with it's quirky electro beats and intricate lyrics, while July release Strange Love is a brilliant track to get you busting a move on the dancefloor. Sarah's on at 10pm so tell your friends and we'll see you down there. See the flyer for more details.

If the thought of Shoreditch on a Saturday night is too much to cope with though, you might want to grab your glittery frock and head down to Stay Beautiful at Camden's Purple Turtle.The monthly night is a always a fun affair with a mix of glam, indie and pop but this weekend sees extra special guest Nicky Wire playing his first ever solo gig as well as London dancerockers White Rose Movement playing a DJ set. Doors open at 9 and it's only £6 before 10. Purple Turtle bouncers are notorious ID'ers so make sure you take some even if you're 40.

Finally in celebration of the day's Euro Pride celebrations, check out the afterparties taking place. Our favourites are either EuroStardust at Wardour St's Trash Palace or if you're South of the river Duckie's Euroshame at SE1's Coronet. Euroshame is traditionally a hoot of a night, with installations from a variety of European performances as well as the normal mix of great Duckie music from The Reader's Wives.

And Sunday? Well it might not be the best night for clubbing, but if you're not at work first thing on Monday morning there's certainly a lot going on to entertain you. If you're a fan of girl voxed electro/trash/indie/pop then cute pub Spread Eagle on Kingsland Road is hosting the Daughters of Kaos event, Pottymouth. Playing live will be Wet Dog,Look Look (dancing boys),No Bra>/a> and Sam Amant. Things kick off at 8pm so if you're in the area take a chance and check out some new London bands. It's a few pounds in but if you say 'Talia' on the door then you'll get in cheap.Alternatively right on the other side of town, take a chance and try Brixton's Babalou for Soul 360. Opening at 5pm for dinner, the club night starts at 10 for the bargain price of £5. Expecta DJ set from Soul II Soul's Aitch B playing 70s and 80s soul, funk and disco alongside 90s R&B.

Have fun and let us know if you go anywhere great that we should check out next time round.
