We hadn't been clubbing for a while and usually go on a Saturday when we do. But our favourite club has moved to a Friday and we couldn't miss it! So last night we were at Gigantor! Gigantor is officially the nightclub for Edinburgh University Science Fiction club but though its still held in the student union it's full of people who were at University with my partner (ie quite a few years ago!!). The music is brilliant, the best from any club in Edinburgh. It's a eclectic mix of punk, goth, rock, alternative and just downright peculiar (the Hockey Song anyone?). Last night we had the Ramones, the Dead Kennedy's, Depeche Mode, Goldfrapp, Placebo and New Model Army to name just a few of our favourite Gigantor bands. (And the Hockey Song of course!!). The atmosphere was great, though there weren't a great number of wonderful outfits to look at and admire. (Its not a club where people really goth up).
When's the next night? Who knows but at least these days its generally at least three times a year, up from annually in those dark distant days of our student days!
