Optimo's 9th Birthday, Sub Club, Glasgow, 26 Nov

4/5 stars

It would be fair to say that the honeymoon period with Optimo is dust now. 26 Nov was Optimo's 9th birthday, meaning that 468 Optimos have gone on before, but tonight it felt like the DJs were taking their job more seriously than ever before as they tried to ram nine years of musical jewels into every auricle. There was fantastic music, a great atmosphere, hot people to get sweaty with, and the place was packed to the metaphorical rafters. Optimo gets a shiny gold star from the teacher and an invitation to meet after class. The club is still one of Scotland's best and most charismatic nights out, but this does beg the question, why does it take a Birthday celebration to remind us, and them, how great a night can be? This was one of the best Optimos all year, let's not wait for another excuse to celebrate! [Damien Hughes]
