The unmissable events in Glasgow this fortnight

. i“. ‘3' Come Down The different - between this event and the rash of recent Sunday clubs is that, instead of concentrating on chatter and relaxation, the tunes are full-on Chicago house from the Slave residents and the bqu of the crowd haven’t stopped since Trade the night before. Slave, Sun 2 Jul.

Degree Show Party As you might imagine, combining a bunch of sleep- deprived art school kids, a street party, some of Glasgow’s finer disc jockeys and a sizeable chunk of cash devoted to making everything look pretty can mean only one thing: a splendid evening out. The music comes courtesy of the likes of Andrew Divine, The Freak Menoovers turntablist crew and a troupe of samba drummers. Glasgow College of Art, Fri 23 Jun.

Traxx The Traxx gang can always be relied upon to provide an excellent evening’s entertainment, but tonight promises to be something a bit special. Guest DJ Harvey has been knocking about the UK house scene from day one and, unlike certain of his contemporaries, has stuck fast to the underground lvalE cover CDs notwithstanding.) If previous appearances at Tangent and Optimo are anything to go by, Harvey fits the Subbie like a glove. Planet Peach, Fri 23 Jun.

Jake Wherry One of the founding members of Ninja Tune's hip hop orchestra The Herbaliser, Wherry (pictured) appears in the live line-up as the bassist. To..ight's event is a DJ set, which will take in hip hop, jazz and rare groove. 62, Thu 22 Jun.

Mish Mash One of the few clubs in the city that can guarantee a top class night out each and every month, Mish Mash is continuing apace thanks to the cracking combination of Harris soul, dub and deep house selections, live percussion and lle who add to, rather han detract from the atmosphere. Regulars should watch out this month, however, as regular end-of-the-month slothas shifted to allow for two nights in Jul. The Riverside Club, Sat 1 Jul.

Hi-T Another Sunday evening, and the complete opposite of the Slave event. The new cafe offers a staggering array of inquions, board games and some seriously chilled-out selections from up to ten local 015. This is a booze and fags-free zone though, so it’s not best suited for those in the middle of a bender. Tclia-ovna, Suns.

22 Jun—6 Jul 2000 THE “ST 65
