Ivy continues into March with another DJ line up that will keep you, them and us coming back for more. The usual suspects will be dropping in to keep us familiar with their celebrated styles as well as the usual array of exclusive guests gracing the turntables for all and sundry.

Bristol's ragga infuse hip hop don Mr Benn continues on the path to success with a set that is sure to be straight fyah on Friday March 7th. He's been all over UK recently and 2008 is set to be his year. Work with Black Twang and South Rakkas Crew will cement his credentials while his DJ skills do all the talking that is necessary. Miso continues with their regular spot on Saturday 8th March and this time they have electronica legend Mike Dred in tow for another special night. Check out www.ilovemiso.com for the skinny. While all this takes place Ivy favourite Murun Buschstansangur and friends will be bringing their unique blend of dextrous diversity to the proceedings. They killed it (in a good way) on New Years Day and we just had to ask them back. Funk fuelled and ready to roll...

Subculture's Harri giving us an alternative spin to his famed house and techno sets at the Sub Club on Friday 14th. He's fresh from a UK tour celebrating 20 Years of Sub Club and we are lucky to have found a space in his diary at our humble bar. Check out the '20 Years Of Sub Club' CD out soon on Soma in case you didn't know. The Numbers crew will be holding it down with their regular pre Monox pub session. They continue to pack the Sub Club monthly as well as tour Europe and beyond so they must like us (or the gourmet burgers) enough to keep coming back!

Mr Nice and Dema from Freakmenoovers will be taking it in turns to show us why their Art School residency is still pulling in capacity crowds after 6 years of partying with Nice dropping in on Friday 21st and Dema on Saturday 29th March. The tightest of skills and the deftest of tune selection mean they never fail. Watch out now! Boom Monk Ben takes a break from his touring schedule on Saturday 22nd. He's been to Barcelona, London, Belfast and beyond recently and always shows us who's boss on North Street. While our ginger fiend toils upstairs we have another session from Argonaut Sounds in the basement. They have confirmed themselves as one of the best reggae sound systems in Scotland and we are always happy to have them and their low ends on a Saturday night. That very weekend is a bank holiday weekend so we've extended the party to Sunday and have Sleepless Crew manning the tables all night. Favourites with Mary Anne Hobbes and Glasgow's discerning clubber alike, these electronic mavericks continue on the road to success with their digital dance hall and wonky beats. They are the next big thing to hail from our murky waters so get 'em while you can.

The final weekend in March makes sure the quality is high and the drinks are flowing as Ivy residents Ooft continue to blaze their deep and dirty trail through house, hip hop and disco edits until we must go home. Their Five20East Recordings label is making waves and we are always happy to have them back. See you there!

This weekend at Subculture's Harri gives us a deeper glance at his extensive record collection on Friday night. Following on from that on Saturday are the Numbers DJs who will be bringing the noise ahead of another Monoxian session at Soundhaus. Another days work for the best bar in town...

Also, don't forget about our bank holiday banger next week with Sleepless Crew donning their DJ mitts and treating us to an aural ear bashing like the bitches we are. Sunday 23rd be the date, Ivy be the place.

Another weekend is almost upon us and Ivy's dedication to beats is just as relentless as the passing of time. This Friday Freakmenoovers' Mr Nice will be manning the platters and on Saturday myself, Boom Monk Ben, will be rocking it for the rum fans out there.

Also, don't forget about Sleepless Crew on the DJ duties for the bank holiday celebrations on Sunday night.

Ivy, 157 - 159 North Street, Glasgow - best bar in town.
