Service charities boosted by clubbers’ generosity after fire

Have your say

It’s about this time, as we head towards December, that I like to think about the year that’s been and what the clubs have given us.

We’ve seen some brand new regular nights, nights that brought Ibiza closer to home, foam parties, monster bar and club crawls and enough special guests to last us into next year. Former talent show and reality TV stars, band members and children’s TV icons have guest DJd some of the best nights in Portsmouth.

Well, what would be the best way to round off this year before the Christmas themed nights turn up? Another guest.

Fans of heavy metal will be extremely familiar with Bullet for my Valentine so, you’ll be pleased to know that tonight’s instalment of Neon Ballroom at the Wedgewood Rooms will feature a very special DJ set with Bullet’s very own J.

Bullet for My Valentine’s debut album, The Poison, entered the Billboard 200 in the US at number 128, the Recording Industry Association of America certifying it Gold. The band made appearances at the Download Festival and Kerrang! XXV, and toured the states with Rob Zombie.

Their second studio album, Scream Aim Fire, debuted at number four on the Billboard 200 and their third album, Fever, debuted at number three. They’ve sold over one million albums in the United States and over three million albums worldwide. They are the most successful act in the Kerrang! Awards category of Best British Band with three wins, making them one of the biggest metal bands in the UK.

Musical support comes from Spikey Mark and Thrash Gordon, plus they’ll be importing their collection of lasers and cool lighting and cranking the mighty Wedge Turbosound rig up to 11.

Doors open at 11pm and entry is £5.

Keeping with the alternative theme, Liquid and Envy is back on Monday night with its student-targeted night Liquid Rocks. If you are looking for a rocking night to remember before you head home for Christmas, this could be for you.

Music is catered for all with room 1 featuring electro, dubstep, drum ‘n’ bass, urban, bangers and student anthems while room 2 serves up retro, 80s electro, 90s anthems and all things big in pop. Bring your friends because, as you can see, there will be something for everybody.

All this plus some great drink deals to match.

The night runs from 10pm until 2.30am and standard entry is £3.60.
