You’ve got to praise our promoters in Glasgow; they’re always looking out for us. With Diplo and Jamie XX in town this week to play sold out shows at the O2 Academy, you can now catch both in decidedly more intimate settings afterwards.
On Thursday night Diplo will be in Glasgow as part of Major Lazer’s European tour, however if you missed out on a ticket, you can now see Diplo play Show at the Sub Club for the official afterparty in what promises to be a certified sweat-fest. It’s been three years since the he last appeared in a Glasgow club, and anyone who caught him at Chambre69 in 2012 will verify that the man knows how to level a dancefloor.
Jamie XX, meanwhile, will play the even smaller confines of La Cheetah with Numbers' Spencer and Whities' Tasker after his performance on Saturday. Having made waves with his debut artist album ‘In Colour’ this summer, while also making headlines with festival sets around the globe, he’s undoubtedly one of electronic music’s brightest and most intriguing talents. With the afterparty announced last night, you may or may not be surprised to learn it’s already sold out. If you grabbed a ticket, then consider yourself lucky...
Diplo plays Show at the Sub Club this Thursday (15th). Advance tickets are available from the Sub Club website priced at £10. Jamie XX plays La Cheetah on Saturday (17th) and the event is completely sold out.
