AT THE CLUB FACE

GALAKTIC SOUND LAB @ the blue note

Switzerland's finest exponent of funky eclectica, Galaktic Sound Lab celebrates its last night at The Blue Note tonight before moving to The Complex - or should it be the Blue Note?

Confused? You should be. The Blue Note closes in a couple of weeks and moves a little further up the road to The Complex near Angel Tube station. The Complex will now be known as The Blue Note until the Old Street venue has been refurbished.

The ground floor of the venue-formerly-known-as-The Complex will become a theatre bar with tables and chairs creating a cafe atmosphere. The split- level second floor will also boast a bar which leads on to the dancefloor while the third floor is set to have an overhaul.

One of the capital's best clubs, it's well worth going the extra mile for.

Tonight, 1 Hoxton Square, N1 (0171-729 8440) 9.30pm-5am pounds 10

sos @ the chapel

Wandsworth hasn't had a credible club since Club UK was closed down. SOS (Sounds of the South) arrives to save south Londoners from a trip to the West End with a line-up of soulful house and underground garage.

The Chapel used to be one of London's finest gospel churches but the singers have now been replaced by the likes of Bobbi and Steve, Norris Da Boss Windross and assorted garage spinners.

Scott Garcia, Mr Jones and Martin Larner take centre stage tonight with resident MCs Creed, PSG, DT and The Original Horn Brothers. Over 21s and strictly no sportswear.

Tonight, 52 Wandsworth High Street, SW18. 10.30pm-3am pounds 6 members/pounds 8 guests

FRISKY @ ministry of sound

London's most famous club shows no signs of diminishing in popularity. Friday nights offer a harder edge to the traditional MoS US-styled beats. Residents John Kelly, Heaven and Paul Jackson are joined this week by Judge Jules, Jon Pleased Wimmin' and Brandon Block to celebrate Charlie Chester's birthday.

Bangin' sound system and a stylish crowd make MoS excellent value for money.

Friday, 103 Gaunt St, SE1 (0171-378 6528) 10pm-6am pounds 10/pounds 6 members

Transmit @ fridge bar

This fortnightly gig is one of the biggest events at the constantly teeming Fridge Bar. The Livid crew capture the flava of underground drum'n'bass, reflecting the music's urban roots and serving up innovative variations to boot.

The fusion includes computer beats, human beatbox and the live toasting. The end result is plenty of bpm and bass for those who like their beats raw and ready.

DM-Cut, Rage and Force K take charge of the mixing while UB Nice and Margo provide MC and vocal skills respectively. There's no dress code or entry tax, but arrive early, as capacity is only 250.

Wednesday, Town Hall Parade SW2 (0171-326 5100) 9pm-3am, free admission
