Party/Club: Ruin First Birthday
One of Digbeth’s funkiest new venues reaches its twelve month anniversary and you’re all invited to the birthday party. Inspired by Budapest’s bustling bar scene and featuring messed up decor, ‘industrial nerve-centre computer room’, distorted library and a growing selection of other random additions devoted to the the shabby spirit of rustic Hungarian pubs and bistros, it’s a gloriously off kilter destination. Paul Finn and Michael McGhee will be pumping out the funk and soul for the birthday boys and girls into the early hours. Boldog születésnapot kids.

Club: The Yardbird Sessions at 1000 Trades
Rumour has it that Yardbird impresario Ollie Lloyd’s record collection is visible from space, apparently NASA has it listed as the greatest vinyl landmass on Earth. Enjoy a miniscule but expertly selected glimpse into this wonder of the modern world as Ollie is let loose on the decks in the JQ’s funkiest new bar for the evening.

Gig/Arts/ Spoken Word: Sunday Xpress at Centrala
Gorge yourselves on the cultural overload of Sunday Xpress, an event so plump with lush music, art and spoken word, you may just need a handy brain defibrillation to get back to any sense of normality on the following Monday. Prime picking this time goes to those scabrous trouble makers and all round musical defunctionaries Shaun Gambowl Walsh and the Plagiarists, keep your expectations low, though we are looking forward to new single Cheese and Pineapple Stick. More noise comes from Retinal Circus, The Man With the Bloody Finger, The Shadow Voyd and Whizzy.
Sun 23 Sep 5pm at Centrala, Unit 4 Minerva Works, 158 Fazeley St, Birmingham B5 5RT www.facebook.com
