Have your say

Another successful hangover for me last weekend with a trip to Beats and Swing, followed by a stop off at Flamingos Bar. It is definitely worth checking these events out as they are a lot of fun.

Kicking off the weekend tonight are Tiger Tiger with another Towie take over. This time The Only Way is Essex lets Portsmouth have a visit from Charlie Sims for a meet and greet in the Kanaloa Bar.

For free entry post your name on the Facebook wall and arrive before 10pm, but it’s worth getting down there early as all drinks are 50 per cent off between 5pm and 9pm.

If this doesn’t make you want to go out then what about the Eskimo Projects massive takeover of The Astoria and The Lyberry Bar?

Multiple rooms, multiple DJs, multiple drinks offers, all for £5 entry. What is not to like?

Tomorrow night is the first birthday of Flamingos Bar, my favourite bar on Albert Road.

As a special treat they have an exceptional guest DJ in the form of Groovepatrol for a 2 hour set. A DJ who has become hugely popular in Tokyo securing residency for two of Japans biggest clubs, Womb and Vision. The birthday presents don’t end there as entry will be free all night. Get out and party with the Flamingo team and don’t forget to try a cocktail.

Love Amplified have already spoilt you this month with Julio Bashmore last Saturday at The Astoria, but they wouldn’t want to let you down, so are back this weekend from 10pm until 5am with non-other than Detroit-based producer Carl Craig.

Carl uses a wide range of music genres as an influence in his music, including jazz and soul. He also has tried out pretty much every position in the industry being an artist, producer, DJ and even a label boss to Planet E Communications. I even hear an extended set is on the cards.

He will be supported by resident DJ Chris Vaux, along with Stu Bryan and Josh Dunleavy.

Downstairs in the basement there will be a Lush FM takeover, featuring DJs that have presented shows on 87.9fm. As always make sure you check out both rooms.

Advance tickets are £10 available from Resident Advisor.
