I Festival Frenzy Yup, it’s that time of year again in Edinburgh. Festival time. We‘ve already heard about a couple of clubs venturing northwards for the three weeks, but we‘d like details of anything else that might be planned for inclusion in our special Fringe Preview. So if you’ve got a club going on between August 10 and September 2, then send us info as soon as possible. That's c/o Avril Mair, The List, 14 High Street. Edinburgh. Cheers!
I Forthcoming events. .. Word reaches us about a great line-up of acts appearing at Glasgow's Tunnel in the near future. This kicks off on 21 July with Andy Weatherall‘s Bocca Juniors. and continues on 28 July with Cola Boy. whose St Etienne produced single ‘7 Ways to Love‘ is currently winging its way up the national charts. Into August. and on the 11th is a Boys Own Production Night, featuring DJs Andy Weathcrall and Terry Farley plus a PA by Airstream; on the 18th a live set by A Man Called Adam. Still to be confirmed is an alldayer with Nomad and DJs Fabio and Groovrider .
I Changes. . . Big changes are afoot at everyone's favourite late-night hang-out, Millionaires in Edinburgh. Despite its reputation as a relatively safe and trouble-free venue anyway, the management are now implementing a membership scheme to ensure that only really nice people get in. Well, that counts all of us at The Lisrout anyway. Seriously though, it‘s a pain-free experience — a polaroid pic is all that‘s needed. and it‘s in your best interests. so bear with the resulting door queues for a while. IWanted . . . Calling all club runners, promoters. DJs etc. You know all those multi-coloured pieces of paper you thrust at unsuspecting members ofthe public each weekend? The ones either emblazoned with your logo in as prominent a position as possible/ covered with your awfully nice wee drawings/ shamelessly ripped off someone else? Yup, ﬂyers. Well, for once we want them. lfyou‘d like these works of art advertising your club to be printed somewhere in the Listings pages, then send them to us. That‘s Clubs Pages, The List. 14 High Street. Edinburgh. We don‘t promise to use them, but we’ll certainly try.
negular weekly clubs plus one-oil events are listed by city. than by day, then alphabetically by title. Clubs will be listed, provided that up-to-date details reach our offices at least seven days before publication. Clubs Listings compiled byAvrii ﬂair and Andrea Baxter.
