Sick Note: Refreshers Week Special With Frightened Rabbit (Live)
Tonight, the fortnightly indie-electro club switches off the turntables (only for a short while) as they adopt a new trend hitting clubland - live acts and DJs playing out side by side.
Sick Note haven’t removed their guest DJ set completely - instead they’re introducing a ‘guest artist’ slot. This means you can expect special one-off appearances from local bands, DJs and rare performances from charted artists.
Previous guests have included Diplo, Fenech-Soler and Little Boots.
Resident DJs Marinello (Machine Room/My Tiny Robots), i-Talla Disco (This Is Music) and Kami (B-Sides) will be firing up the party all night with their usual blend of cutting-edge sounds, taking clubbers deep into the underground.
Launching the new format is exceptionally talented indie boys Frightened Rabbit (Live).
Cabaret Voltaire, Blair Street, tonight, 11pm–3am, £4, 0131-247 4704
ThIS brand new night runs fortnightly, promoting the best nu-disco, funk, soul, reggae and rock’n’roll. All within the walls of one of Edinburgh’s most colourful clubs, Electric Circus – its neon, mood enhancing lighting a perfect venue to party.
