LOUD and PROUD to be out with the crowd; go 2: the limit: ear to the ground.

Byline: DAYLE CRUTCHLOW

IT'S starting to look less and less like a cultural wasteland round these parts and more and more like an area with purpose. No more need for embarrasment. Say it loud and say it proud: "Tonight, I'm going out in Cov! Or Nuneaton. Or Leamington. Even Bedworth!"

No matter what your taste in musical entertainment, your cup should runneth over this week.

For instance, if serious dance music rocks your world try Carey's on Friday or Saturday.

Tonight it's Prototype at the reborn venue and the tunes for discerning clubbers come from Lange (aka SuReal).

Tomorrow night Traffic takes over the place and rocking the DJ booth will be Manumission legend DJ Buff.

Over at the West Indian Club tonight it's a night of "lektrofunkin' basstranzmissions" with Nu Jaxx City vs Spunky Town. DJs at the helm are Stevo, MadJack, Loreal, Dr Millz and Discostu.

Or, if you're after live bands, try Bait at the Rocket tonight. Packing a heady mix of original tunes and covers, Bait are also showing off a new lead guitarist, Dave Perry.

Singer and former guitarist Dan Hall said: "He made my guitar playing look like I'd been playing for six months in my bedroom, so for our live act I'm almost exclusively strutting my funky stuff as the frontman."

If you prefer to know exactly what you're getting then try Fred Zeppelin at Keresley's Hare and Hounds tonight. Been a long time since rock and roll.

Remind yourselves.

Sweet soul music is the order of the day at Bedworth Civic Hall tonight, in aid of the mayor's County Air Ambulance Appeal. Sounds come from The Foundation, fronted by the Disciples of Soul ex-singer.

If all that sounds too safe and squeaky clean try Bristol muthas of scary rock One Dice at the Colosseum tomorrow. A bit like Sepultura, a bit like Pantera. Lock up your daughters 'cos they didn't learn to do what they do at cissy school. Support comes from Coventry's own grungey rockers Thorium.

If you like your guitars to be played with more of an indie slant, try Genius Breed at Kelly's in Leamington tomorrow night.

Big things seem to be on the horizon for the Breed, who have been working with John Kalodner at Columbia Records and Clive Black from Edel Records. And for classy rock covers you won't go far wrong with G'dansk at Carey's on Sunday and Kelly's on Monday.

CAPTION(S):

INDIE STYLE: Genius Breed perform at Kelly's in Leamington tomorrow night; TRIBUTE: Fred Zeppelin play the Hare and Hounds in Keresley tonight (above) and Bait showcase their new guitarist at The Rocket in Warwick Road, also tonight
