The latest club news
More New Year’s Eve info for any forward planning you might be attempting (remember these events sell out well in advance). Starting with Glasgow: perhaps one of the most exciting signings for Hogmanay has to be Hot Chip (pictured) who will be putting in a full live set at Optimo, this year taking over the Old Fruitmarket. ‘There’s not a lot of parties that we would do then as it’s nice to have the night off,’ explains the Chip’s Joe Goddard, ‘but an Optimo party is one that we’re excited about.’ Optimo’s brethren Subculture will be hosting the home game at the Sub Club (guest still the). Over at the Carling Academy we get the Back to the Future NYE Party featuring the usual suspects (QFX, Madman, Dream Frequency etc) and an exclusive in the shape of Industrial Strength legend Lenny Dee. Colours meets Hed Kandi at the Tunnel with the likes of Tom de Neef, Rob Wilder and Kate Lawler (aye the one off Big Brother). Disco Badger host the night at Bamboo with the best in electro, pop, indie and house. While the Garage and Cube present the best of their residents to see you through the bells.
In Edinburgh, Cabaret Voltaire is placing itself in the safe house hands of Ultragroove. Vegas make their annual pilgrimage to Edinburgh College of Art for their swinging Grand Hogmanay Ball. It's an AtterDark residents special. and there's more quality house down the Liquid Room. And there's another huge party taking over Ocean Terminal as Progression and Ministry of Sound are joined by special guests Sebastian Ingrosso and Chris Lake. Finally Huggy and the Stereotype Allstars will be taking over Berlin.
And just time to say a big congrats to the Cathouse, Glasgow, as they head for their 16th birthday (1 Dec) for picking up Scottish National Nightclub of the Year at the recent SLTN Awards.
