The best clubs this

Traxx The residents are joined this time by Elliot Eastwick, head of the ever-reliable Paper Recordings imprint and founder of Hard Times, who is also joined by label-mate Miles Holloway. Planet Peach, Fri 72 May.

Hi Karate You’re always in for a good night at Hi Karate, but they have a flurry of guests booked for the summer to keep the kids interested. First up is the Battlecreek tour, celebrating the second release for The Deadly Avenger’s collaboration project on Illicit Records. Alongside The Avenger, Touche, Andy Organic Audio and Portishead DJ Andy Smith will be showcasing their disparate styles. Glasgow School of Art, Thu 77 May.

Derrick May lt's legend time again, with a three-hour set from the famously un-prolific dance music pioneer. May, aka Mayday and Rhythm ls Rhythm, had a hand in kick-starting modern dance music with the seminal ’Strings of Life' track. Frankly, tonight is unmissable for anyone and everyone who gives two hoots about house or techno. The Temple, Sat 73 May

My Machines The Art School seems to be pulling out all the stops at the moment as far as booking the big names goes, and Wilkes 8r Hatch are joined by one of the biggest: Andy Weatherall (picture). The man needs no introduction really, suffice to say the former Primal Scream producer is virtually guaranteed to serve up the kind of set the kids talk about for weeks. Glasgow School ofArt, Sat 73 May.

Deathlehem Clubs for kids who don’t hold with all that modern dance music claptrap are thin on the ground, and this superbly named new night should help to provide a bit of balance for fans of all things metal and rock. Think AC/DC, Sabbath, Slipknot and Korn. Scary biscuits. The 73th Note Club, week/y Wed.

Syntax A brand new night at a brand new venue, occupying the space formerly know as Tin Pan Alley. Expect Detroit to dominate with electro, techno and house from the residents and special guest Jason Pussypower. GI, Sat 79 May.

11-25 May 2000 THE usrn
