HOORAY! Hooray! It's a double Bank Holiday and, as you'd expect, there are plenty of special events happening in York's nightspots this weekend.

Things kick-off tonight with twice-monthly, guitar-based disco Vanishing Point, which is hosting a special Good Friday event.

The night at the Little John Cellar Bar, in Castlegate, has an extension to midnight so they can squeeze in a set by Tremulous Monk as well as the usual DJs playing everything from 1960s to the present day that takes their fancy.

Entry is a measly £1 and doors open at 8pm.

Anyone wanting to catch Tremulous Monk is advised to arrive early.

Also taking place tonight is Supa Fi at the City Screen Basement Bar, off Coney Street.

Live music comes courtesy of York hip hoppers Endgunn as well as drum'n'bass from Target Practice, alongside resident DJ Duke Dylanaja.

Doors open at 7.30pm and entry is £3 in advance (tickets from 01904 541144) or £3.50 on the door.

Meanwhile, Kennedy's Cafe-Bar, in Little Stonegate, has ditched its weekly Dance Culture session in favour of a single monthly event by Widescreen, on the last Monday of the month.

The first of these will be on this coming Bank Holiday Monday, from 7pm to 11pm, in the Basement Bar.

Guests will be Nick Minardi, bringing his sexy funky house sound from defunct Dance Culture event Slam Dunk Da Funk, with Hull DJ Alex Alterskye spinning a bit of groovy tech house.

Residents Gazzman and Fudance will also be behind the decks, playing progressive house and breaks.

Entry is free and there will be CD giveaways and drinks promotions. Widescreen was recently named one of the top five nights in the north by DJ Mag so it's sure to be a good way to end the long weekend.

Also on Monday is the launch of Decades Of Dance at Toffs, in Toft Green, a night featuring everything from 1970's disco classics right through to the Ibizian dance anthems of the 1990s.

The club is open from 10pm to 2am and entry is £3.50.
