Service charities boosted by clubbers’ generosity after fire

Have your say

Liquid & Envy is running away with itself this week. That’s not to say there aren’t any more great nights out there this week, but if you are a student or like big-name DJs then Liquid is where you want to be.

Do you want not just one venue to spend your night out but five? Yes, Walkabout, Fuzzy Duck, Yates, Terrace and, finally, Liquid are presenting Carnage this Sunday.

The theme is Action Man Versus Barbie, so ladies keep your eagle eyes out for your Ken. Special Carnage T-shirts, which act as your ticket, are available at and cost £10.

It all kicks off at 9pm.

Secondly, at Liquid, is a fantastic night from Sumo and Concrete on Tuesday. It’s the return of Portsmouth favourites the Scratch Perverts.

They want to get as many of you as they can raving in sunglasses.

Anything goes – Wayfarers, Aviators, Shutter Shades or novelty specs – just rock out with your shades on.

They’ll have photographers to capture the moments and the pictures will go straight on their Facebook group page.

As well as the Perverts, you can enjoy top tunes from Breakage, Camo and Krooked, DC Breaks and the resident Concrete DJs.

Something to note is that this won’t just be your usual night at Liquid & Envy. There will be a custom stage, sound system and lighting to add to the perfect clubbing experience.

Tickets are only available on the door and prices are still to be confirmed. Keep an eye on for more information, if you are interested in this one.

Now, for something a little different.

The Kraken Wakes has been providing us with some great nights out since it took over from the Registry last year. That has included a lot of niche nights and, this week, they have one that is very specific. Tomorrow night is Brazil.

Join the carnival atmosphere for dancehall, 1990s r’n’b, hip-hop, tropical and two-step sounds to help you through this dance-fest.

Some great drink deals will be available and entry is completely free.

Finally, it’s a night of classics at the Wedgewood Rooms tomorrow as Hipshaker and the Right Track Scooter Club will be playing the grooviest 1960s soul, rock, ska and pop with resident DJs Nelly, Biggles and Jo.

All that plus experience some live retro goodness as well with Time Bomb on stage later on in the evening.

The starts at 9pm and it costs £5 to get in.
