Revenge of the Nerds

Titanic has never seemed a nerd-friendly environment -- big muscleheads with cognac bottle-shaped bodies stand around the bathrooms ready to bounce a weakling into nonexistence. This Saturday might be different though, when the club organizes a "hacker" party. Events include hook-ups to the web, free computer games, appearances by electronic groups and soul-squeezing, a.k.a Chemical Brothers electronica that should lift you off the virtual dance floor.

Titanic. Cover: 100 rubles. 31 Leningradsky Prospekt, 213-6095, 11 p.m. to 7 a.m. Metro: Dynamo.

The Taxman Cometh

The club Taxman has been around for quite a while. If you're

an art buff, you've seen it -- it's the one just on the side of the Central House of Artists. The club is a cheap, cozy, artsy billiard/live performance club that's bopping on spring weekends with the overflow from nearby Gorky Park. This weekend promises a full house with popular Volny Stil playing Friday, and Moscow's favorite unpronounceable ska/reggae band Markscheider Kunst hitting the stage late Saturday night.

Taxman. Cover: 40 rubles. 10 Krymsky Val, 238-0864, 11 p.m. to 6 a.m. Metro: Oktyabrskaya.
