Recently I’ve had the pleasure of going to The Astoria’s Oh La La Saturdays and it always has great atmosphere, with the resident DJs always playing spot-on club anthems, throwing everything in to the mix and performing alongside live percussionists and saxophonists! Always a fun night.

Kicking this week’s scene off, Sin! returns to The Wedgewood Rooms to present one of Southsea’s largest free club nights. Promising to play anything pre-2010, you can expect everything from ’80s pop bops to ’50s rock’n’roll. DJ Pete Scathe will present Transmission in Room 2, which is going to be filled with alternative ’80s tunes and post-punk anthems. It is from 10.30pm until 2am. More details can be found at
