Tonight marks the start of Sub Club’s Sub Hub venture, a month long period of workshops, conversation, parties and hangout taking place in a loft space above Glasgow’s iconic Style Mile on Buchanan St. With excitement building, we can now reveal some of the planned events, including details of tonight’s opening party.
Kicking off at 6 tonight, you’ll find Sub Club favourites Harri & Domenic, Sensu, Stay Fresh and Thunder Disco Club alongside some very special guests, while there will also be a cinema room and creative art exhibition to explore. Food will be provided by Devil’s Deli and No Way Back, with the afterparty set to take place at the Subbie itself.
Then, on Saturday evening we’re in for a treat, as globally respected DJ and producer, Andrew Weatherall, drops by for chat to talk music, industry and everything else that makes him one of the most interesting people in dance music today.
Provided you’re not suffering from Saturday night excess, Sunday afternoon finds Red Bull Music Academy (who descend on the city this weekend for their own series of special events) host RBMA Radio with some of Glasgow’s finest local talent, including Optimo, Nightwave, Inkke, S-Type and MermaidS. Then, later in the evening, pioneering techno DJ, Derrick May, will be in town for a conversation and screening with Stuart Cosgrove, who wrote an important article for FACE titled ‘Seventh City Techno’ in which he spent time with Derrick May in his hometown of Detroit.
Events lined up for next week include The Revenge debut album launch and live show with an intimate performance and Q&A, an evening with George Fitzgerald in which he talks us through his record collection, a production workshop with local heroes aliOOFT! and Rob Etherson from Mia Dora and an all day, all ages Easter Sunday loft party with Night of the Jaguar.
Almost all Sub Hub events are free and it’s advised you sign up to the Sub Hub mailing list to stay informed of details – signing up is also necessary for entry to tonight’s opening party. Entry to Sub Hub is also based on a first come, first serve basis, so arrive early. More info on all the events can be found at the Sub Hub Facebook page.
