This may be the most closely fought election in a generation, but let's face it, if you're staying in to watch the "action" you'll probably need more than a few tinnies to see you through. Why not go out to one these cracking club events, get a carry-out in for the afters and make a real night of it? You're going to want to be mwi when it all hits the fan anyway...
1/ Deep Cuts @ The Election Party Special (Hosted By General Ludd) (Nice N Sleazy)
Frenetic, eclectic and spontaneous, General Ludd’s monthly residency at Nice N Sleazy is all about getting loose; it’s a musical free-for-all where Tom Marshallsay (aka Dam Mantle) and Rich McMaster (Golden Teacher) get to dig deep, mixing records which you won’t hear anywhere else on Sauchiehall St (or Glasgow for that matter). With a coveted release on ultra-hip NY label, Mister Saturday Night, as well as a much hyped appearance on Boiler Room last year, this is one coalition you can rely on. (Free)
2/ HIDE. Presents Paul Woolford (Sub Club)
Following previous parties with Burnski, Laura Jones and Rodriguez Jr, HIDE return to the Sub Club with the unstoppable Paul Woolford. You may know him for his piano-laden remixes of Sam Smith, George FitzGerald and Disclosure, his 2013 weapon ‘Untitled’ or even through his devastating breaks guise, Special Request – either way, you’ll know that’s he one of the hottest names in electronic music. With a resume that stretches way back to the 90s, this is a rare opportunity to catch him on the Subby soundsystem. (£10 Resident Advisor)
3/ Walk n' Skank W/ Vic Galloway And Mungo’s Hi Fi (The Berkeley Suite)
If the election has you stressin’ then we thoroughly recommend a night at Walk n' Skank for your weekly fix of all things reggae, dancehall and dub. Hosted by Glasgow’s resident soundsystem, Mungo’s Hi Fi at The Berkeley Suite, this is a party all about good vibes and easy riddims. This Thursday they invite BBC Radio Scotland’s Vic Galloway to select some of his favourite tunes, and with over 11 years on air, the depth and scale of his musical knowledge is something to behold. One for the steppas! (£3/5 OTD)
