I Early to bed Anyone waiting expectantly for info on the Slam all-nighter at the Barrowlands we warned you about a few issues back . . . well, sorry- there ain‘t gonna be one. Venue management has decided, in its infinite wisdom, that it doesn‘t want anything that continues past bedtime. So tough.
I Starr delay Starting as always with the bad news, Gang Starr‘s much-anticipated date at The Tunnel this fortnight has, unfortunately. had to be postponed. With a bit of luck though, you will be able to catch the jazz warriors some time soon. Also off is A Tribe Called Quest‘s Tunnel show. No news as yet of rescheduling, but we‘re promised that they will appear eventually. Fingers crossed . . .
i I Rave on Word is out about another two massive productions by the Ayr posse. Streetravc Part III is an all-nighter which happens on Sat 8 June at The Forum, Livingston. Acts promised include The Orange Grove, and there’s a big line-up of DJs — among them Frankie Bones and Eddie Richards — guaranteed to get even a dour East coast crowd throwing their arms in the air. Ca110292 61 1676 ( 10am—6pm) for details. We can also exclusively reveal (honest!) that Streetravc are currently planning Scotland‘s biggest ever all-day dance extravaganza. scheduled to take place on Sun 7 July at Ayr Racecourse. 10.000 tickets will be on sale for the event, which will feature a wide selection of big-name acts and prove a northern alternative to Milton Keynes big bash. Watch this space for further details as we get them. I TV chance BuddingTV stars listen up. Anyone who fancies their drunken dancefloor antics being relayed to thousands of livingrooms across the country need do no more than venture down to Edinburgh‘s Calton Road on Friday 3 May. BBC Scotland are bringing their cameras first to the Calton Studios to film short sets by three ofthe city's finest dance acts— The Orange Grove, Zulu Syndicate and TKO — then are moving up to Pure at The Venue where the action continues. The (hopefully) edited version will hit Scottish screens in the near future in the form of a programme about the capital‘s nightlife. Don‘t say we didn‘t warn you. . .

ominous to me — with the occasional
company of fire-eaters or singing tramps, so I‘m told. lfyou‘rc the sort ofperson who describes themselves as ‘wacky' or ‘bubbly‘. then you‘ll probably go overboard for this.

'1 lpm—3.30am. £2 (£1 .50 with matric card). Oh great. Just what Glasgow needs. Another student night . . .well.that‘s what Graham and Graeme who are behind it say, but I‘ve got asncaking suspicion that this one could be a cut above the rest, seeing as it‘s run by wacky student types themselves who know what the kids want: Abba.

I Tankin' at Tin Pan Alley. 10.30pm—3.30am. £1 .50 with matric card or leaﬂet. I‘ve always thought that the term ‘indie kid‘ was one of affection, but the Tankies have taken a little offence. so I‘ll just say this is a club run by students who got fed up with the often predictable fodder at the unions and decided to setup their own alternative alternative.

Featuring an African Fashion Show on 10 May—see News. I Pure The Venue. 11pm—4am. Members and guests only. Continuing to go from strength to strength, with an amazing 2000 people now in possession of that little white membership card.
