There really is always too much to choose from in terms of your night out. Allow The Waveform Transmitter’s Ste Knight to make life a little easier for you by selecting the cream of the crop.
Yeah, we know. Picking the best night out from a bunch of strong contenders can be pretty tough, can’t it? Fortunately for you, here at The Waveform Transmitter, we like to help our readers by telling them what to do. Think of us as an authoritarian regime.
Not only that, but it is Friday 13th, which means that if you pick the wrong night to go to, there is a 100% likelihood that your time on this mortal coil will be swiftly ended by some prick in a hockey mask as you float merrily home post-club. Nobody wants that, now, so take our advice and stick to our suggestions.
Anyway, enough of that claptrap. Here’s Ste Knight with this weekend’s top club nights, starting tonight. Be it house, techno, or some serious mashup bizniz, there’s something here for most tastes to get down to.
