July (Week 3) Clubbing Listings: Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen and Dundee

Featured Club of the Week: Subculture
Venue: Sub Club
Date: Saturday 16th July

Lil Louis is somewhat of a Higgs Boson particle for house music, playing an intergral part in its conception and progression in Chicago; so, it’s very fitting that Subculture - the home of Glasgow house - has him headlining this week’s event with resident Harri. If you caught Louis at their 2010/2011 NY party, you’ve probably already bought the ticket.

11pm-3am, £10 / free before midnight

Venue: Cabaret Voltaire
Date: Friday 15th July

Axis invite Edinburgh duo Attic Kings to headline the evening with Hot Knives, Shaun Johnston, Slikk Mick, and Tony Nicol.
