I Mambo Clinic Barbizon Restaurant. 13 July only. 9pm—2am. £2. Latin andjazz. Tequila and beer promos.
I Dream at Papa Doc's. Cumbernauld. 10pm-3am. £2.50. Club entrepreneurs The Freedom Association launch an attempt to make something of a nightclub hitherto rather a ncd's paradise. An ambient atmosphere is promised. with all sorts of clever lighting effects. projectors and strobes to accompany the interesting mixture of house and Balearic beats. Chill out. man.
I Joy at the Sub ( 'lub. llpm-5am. £3.50.Though still one of (ilasgow‘s most popular clubs. Joy's been a little quiet of late. but sortie special events and guest Dis are promised tt » liven it up duringthe summer months. There may be a heavier emphasis on their dance and house roots. I Rumble at Joe Paparazzi. 10pm—-3.30am. £3 (£1 .50 student ). The tacky excesses ofloe Paps are morethan compensated for by superb mixing and an excellent choice of dance music which skilfully manages to avoid the obvious. Devoted to serious hopping. but watch out for the laser show too.
I Three Amigos at Tin Pan Alley.
llpm- late. £4 (£1 with leaflet ). Aimed squarely at the student population and playing new wave indie -~ the Charlatans. Cud and .lamcs are reference points — this newish club is more ‘traditionally alternativc'. less 'tcchno-house dance'. Whether the summer hols will prove to be the best time to get a studenty club offthe ground remains lobe seen.

I Atlantis at Sub Club 11pm ~5am. £5. More news about the now -inlamous Stone Roses visit to this august venue . .. unreliable sources tell me that the lads. after a little difficulty proving their age at the bar. spent the night importuningthe DJ to play ‘Tilizabeth My Dear' and were unsurprisingly turned down. Doubtlcss the chic Atlantis crowd wouldn‘t have stood for such rock‘n‘ rol antics.
I Burnout at Rooftops. llpm-late. £2.50. [was impressed by Burnout. which hasa healthy policy of putting unsigned bandsin the cosy club atmosphere of the Secrets lounge (including plenty of soft sofas for those who frug too w ildly to collapse on). Music is primarily indie faves. with aslight emphasis on the Manchester scene; some have been reminded of the KesClub. More developments and bigger bands are promised soon.

1 lpm—3am. £1.50. Recapturethat
authentic 60s' seaside riot atmosphere as
the city‘s mods and rockers fight to stay
upright on a dancefloor the size of a
Twister board. The most confused clientele this side of the Shimmy. but at least they've cut down on the
. twenty-minute guitar solos.
I Swirl at the Art School. llpm-2am.
£l .50. Digout your anorak. it‘s indie kid
1 time again. The music is slightly fey — and l
mean that in a caring way. folks — lotsof choruses about unrequited love that go ‘ba
. ba ba'. Maybe a bit ofguitar grunge along

frustration as well.

Expect a bit more hardcore and slightly less gothie. but they do have a friendly attitude towards requests. Watch this space for details of their forthcoming membership scheme. I Hypnolonic Soundtrack at l‘ury Murrys. £2. (ireat dance music. the best from the indie charts and more playing to a busy. appreciative crowd. A pleasingly diverse crossover playlist. I The Power at the Sub ( 'lub. llpm-3.30am. £2. The Sub is known for playing hard-hitting dance. but DJ Harri includes some reggae. ska and a bit of ‘traditional' rock now and then to make it a tad different. I Videodrome Rock Night at the Videodrome. 8pm late. £2.50. A mixture of the harder new releases with more ‘melodic' stuff: l.\’XS. Defl.cppard.
