I Kopylrat Club at Rain. 375 Sauchiehall Street. llpm—late. £2. Upfront dance from the ever-busy Slam crew. Orde. Stuart and Harri. Promo drinks.
I Marmalade Skies at the Mayfair (Cameo Suite). llpm—2.30am. £1. Those Psychotic Reaction boys finally get their own night to knock out good wholesome psychedelia and indie from the likes of Hendrix, Spacemen 3. Chocolate Watch
Band. James Brown. The Charlatans. Led
Zeppelin. The Pixies and so on. There could be live music too at some stage.
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 set up
their own alternative alternative.
I The Tunnel 11pm-3.30am. £1 .50 with matriculation card. £3.50 without. Student-orientated music from indie to funk.
I The Alhambra 8pm—midnight. Free.
I Bloomers at Cleopatra‘s. 10.30pm—2.30am. £2 (£1 student).
I 808 mum at Mardi Gras. 10.30pm—3.30am. £2 (£1 with ticket).

1 1pm—late. £2 before 12.30am. £2.50 after.
I Savoy 11pm-3am. £2. Over-25$ disco. I Strathclyde University Union 9pm—2am. Free.
I BoomTown Wilkie House. 10pm—3am. £3. DJs Scott from Phase 1 and Gareth from Tribe Vibe play heavy tunes — that's techno. hip hop and house to you and me. Also resurrecting the famous upstairs food bar (remember Spanish Harlem? Those were the days. . . When I were but ayoung lad. . . Don‘t get much betterthan that . .. etc, etc). Shake a leg. then stuff yourface. they suggest. What a good idea.
I Glider 9c Victoria Street. 10pm—3am. £2.50. A Floral Riot reincarnation, which will undoubtedly prove just as worthy as its predecessor. With. for the first time. a playlist venturing cautiously towards dance territory. Well. Gary Clail and The Shamen. anyway. This change is already looking like an astute move though-
surely 500 regulars can‘t be wrong?
I Scream Calton Studios (upstairs).
l 1pm—4am. 24 May only. Taking over where Zebedee left off. with laid-back spaced-out 60s sounds. man.
I Raw The Mission. 10.30pm—3am. A second rock night for The Mish.
I Marley’s Reggae Klub Network 2. 10.30pm—4am. £2. A reggae night (surprise. surprise); still running after an incredible 13 years. and just as popular as it ever was. If you‘ve never been. then you‘re missing out.
I Pore The Venue. 11pm—4am. Members and guests only. Continuing to go from strength to strength. with an amazing 2000 people now in possession ofthat little white membership card. Such is the demand. in fact. that you now have to go along for a couple of weeks to prove that you‘re a very. very nice person. before being allowed to join up. (Twothousand nice clubbers in Edinburgh? Quelle surprise). See News for details of some forthcoming changes.
I Green Banana Club Potterrow. 9pm—2am. Students and guests only. Traditionally an ‘alternative‘ night. with occasional live bands — in the past as diverse as That Petrol Emotion.The Proclaimers and The Bhundu Boys.
I Beatbox and Strangeways Teviot Row. 9pm—2am. Students and guestsonly. Busy. busy. busy union disco — 1 hesitate to use the word ‘club‘ — on two floors; chart trash upstairs. indie dance down. The best thing about this is the happy hour. which is
cheap even by student standards. They are. however. now in possession of a fairly large light show — which may impress you. Or not. as the case might be.
I Network 1 10.30pm—4am. £3. A retrospective night. incorporating a wide range of 705 sounds.
I The Amphitheatre 10pm—4am. £2 before “pm/£4 after.

I Millies lilpm—oam. £2 before 2am; £3 after. Favourite late night hangout of clubbers. club runners and those who just won‘t go to bed. Fabulous.
I Shall Heriot-Watt Union. Riccarton. 25 May only. 10pm—3am. £2.50. Free buses back to Edinburgh centre at 3am. Saturday Night Fever atmosphere. but with a soundtrack of funk and urban jazz rather than dodgy disco.
I Galaxy 9c Victoria Street. llpm—3am.
