Mr Mcclel­land’s Fin­ish­ing School Last year DJ An­drew Mcclel­land and his fin­ish­ing school were forced to aban­don ship when their usual haunt, Bella Union Bar, closed in Oc­to­ber. Luck­ily for party-in­clined Mel­bur­ni­ans the monthly party night landed on its (danc­ing) feet with a reg­u­lar spot at Colling­wood’s Ga­some­ter Ho­tel. Mcclel­land spends all night spin­ning the best of pop, from last year’s great­est hits to

the songs your mum lis­tened to

as a teen. à The Ga­some­ter Ho­tel, 484 Smith St, Colling­wood 3066. 03 9416 3335. the­ga­some­ter­ho­tel.com.au. 9pm. $10. Third Fri­day of each month. Soul-a-go-go Funk never went out of fash­ion at Soul-a-go-go, and once you’ve been to one of the venue’s monthly party nights you’ll see why. Or­gan­ised by com­mu­nity ra­dio stal­warts PBS106.7, it’s the big­gest reg­u­lar night of funk and soul mu­sic in Aus­tralia. As well as Vince Peach, the DJ for PBS Soul Time pro­gram, Soul-a-go-go fea­tures live acts to get you in the old-school mood. If your per­fect night out fea­tures danc­ing and good vibes then Soul-a-go-go should be your go-to. à The Night Cat, 137-141 John­ston St, Fitzroy 3065. 03 9417 0090. www.thenight­cat.com.au. First Satur­day of each month. $40-$45. PNB Fri­days Kick off your week­end with PNB Fri­days at Laun­dry Bar. The Fitzroy club is the place to go for rap and hip hop in Mel­bourne, with PNB (that’s, ahem, party n bull­shit) Fri­days reg­u­larly pack­ing out the house. Ex­pect straight rap and hip hop play­ing across two lev­els. Got some dol­lars to burn? High rollers can nab their own

booth and drinks pack­age.

à Laun­dry Bar, 48-50 John­ston St, Fitzroy 3065. 03 9415 8027. laun­dry­bar.com.au. Fri 9pm. $15 af­ter 11pm. Su­per­s­mall Club Fans of themed par­ties as­sem­ble! Su­per­s­mall Club is on ev­ery Fri­day and Satur­day at Good Things in South Yarra. Nos­tal­gia is what the club does best; pre­vi­ous par­ties have fea­tured The OC, Brit­ney Spears and Spice Girls themes. It’s the sort of place you can shame­lessly scream your lungs out to ‘Won­der­wall’ while drink­ing hi­lar­i­ously named shots. à Good Things, 147 Com­mer­cial Rd, South Yarra 3141. www.face­book.com/goodthings­bar. Fri, Sat 8pm-3am. $10 af­ter 10pm. Burn City Disco House mu­sic is great but if you’d rather head some­where that sounds like the ’70s, then make a bee­line for Burn City Disco at Brown Al­ley. The first Fri­day of each month is the club’s ded­i­cated disco night, with live new wave disco DJS set­ting up grooves all evening. You’ll need to shell out some moolah to get in, but for eight hours of disco bliss (it runs till 6am) it’s well worth it. à Brown Al­ley, 585 Lons­dale St, Mel­bourne 3000. 03 9670 8599. www.brow­nal­ley.com. 10pm-6am. First Fri­day of each month. $20-$40.
