F GLASGOW Fridays
I Crash at the Cotton Club. 1 llpm—5.30am. £4 (£3 with ticket.£2 before midnight). Bizarre dancefloor antics— this is where all those bodypoppers from the 80s went — and fairly safe but crucial rave and club sounds of the more ‘commercial' type (i.e. ‘songs’ instead of bleep-bleep-twiddle). The male patrons are quite baggy. but the females are intimidatingly glamorous. I Delirium 7 at Rooftops (Secrets Lounge). llpm—4am. £2.50. Those going upstairs to he delirious will now be escorted up in the lift. which should cut back on queuing and unwanted bouncer attention.
IJoy at the Sub Club. 11pm—5am. £3.50. L'pfront dance and the latest of it. house. hippety-hoppety and techno. Hugely popular. I Panic at Glasgow College Student L'nion. 9pm—3am. Free. Studentsand guests only. Anything from The Charlatans to The Clash with more ofan emphasis on dance music and. though the black-clad crowd still show. goth sounds are definitely minimal.
I Radio City at the Mayfair (Cameo Suite). 10.30pm—3am. £2. Sixties rock merging surprisingly well with 90s‘ rave. with the odd dance record thrown in too. And the bouncers are fearfuily nice. Honest.
I Rain 375 Sauchiehall Street. llpm—5am. £3 (£1 .50 student). Newish club. with a mysterious address and as yet something ofan unknown quantity(i.e.1haven't been yet). but they say they're playing techno (yawn). hip-hop. house and reggae — wait a minute. and reggae? But drinks. however. are only £1 each. so it’s worth a look. I Rumble at Joe Paparazzi.
10pm—3.30am. £3 (£1 student). Laying down a good claim to have the best dancers in Glasgow. Rumble certainly has some of the best dance sounds. an eclectic and often surprising mix. I Shag at Fury Murrys. l 1pm—5am. £2.50. Watch the flying drinks. watch the Clangcrs videos. watch people freaking out to Deee-Lite and miming to ‘1 Will Survive'. I Three Amigos at Tin Pan Alley. llpm—latc. £4 (£1 .50 with leaflet). Dance classics. from ABC to the lnspiralCarpets — and you can't get much more different than those two bands. can you. especially sartorially (and talent-wise too. really). I The Tunnel Soul. club classics. northern soul. for a slightly older and tad more sophisticated crowd. OTHERS
