THE CURE SPECIAL ON SAT 10TH MARCH

We’re having a Cure special at our next night at The Albany on Saturday 10th March!

We’ll be playing their many hits, “Friday I’m in Love”, “The Lovecats”, “Just Like Heaven”, “Boys Don’t Cry”, “Close To Me” plus a few of the bands rarer heard songs.

We’ve got Cure superfan Colm McCrory as our guest DJ. Colm plays in the recently reunited Language of Flowers and Help Stamp Out Loneliness and is also fine DJ in his own right.

On the night we’ll be projecting the first of Krzysztof Kieślowski’s Three Colours Trilogy.

We’ll be playing indiepop, post-punk and new wave music too. Send in your Cure and non-Cure requests on the Facebook event.

DJING AT THE ROSIE TAYLOR PROJECT AT THE LEXINGTON

We’ll be DJing at The Rosie Taylor Project album launch for Twin Beds on Tuesday 24th January.

Scared To Dance in Glasgow Cancelled

Sad news, Tracyanne Campbell can no longer DJ for us in Glasgow on Friday 24th February so we’re having to cancel the night.

This is a real shame since I was looking forward to taking the club to the city for the first time. I’m hoping to take Scared To Dance to Glasgow in the future so watch this space.

That means our night with Allo Darlin’ at The Albany on Saturday is our only one in February so come down and hit the dancefloor in style!

Send in your requests for Allo Darlin’

On Saturday night we’ve got Elizabeth Morris from the excellent Allo Darlin’ DJing at The Albany. Elizabeth has DJed for us on two previous occasions so I’m delighted she’s back for her annual set.

Their new single “Capricornia” has been on heavy rotation at the club of late so come down and check out which songs Elizabeth has been listening to for the inspiration behind their forthcoming album Europe.

There’s a little bit of history between the club and Allo Darlin’. I took the band over to Norway last year for a couple of gigs in Oslo and Bergen so it’s great to get her behind the decks as often as we can.

The last four nights have sold out so the best advice is to come before 11pm or you may get stuck in the queue outside where we operate a one in, one out system.

What would you like to hear on the night? You can post your requests on Facebook. Hopefully see you on Saturday!

SCARED TO DANCE PODCAST #5

The latest in our monthly podcasts is now out. It features an hour of new releases from The Magnetic Fields, with their fantastic new single “Andrew in Drag”, Fortuna POP! favourites Allo Darlin’, Evans the Death and Shrag, plus eagerly awaited new material from Withered Hand, First Aid Kit and The Rosie Taylor Project.

The podcast has an exclusive track from the forthcoming Wave Pictures album titled Long Black Cars. There’s also a welcome return for The Shins, Wild Nothing and of Montreal. It’s been too long.

You can listen to it for free on Mixcloud. Whilst you’re there, you can browse our previous four podcasts at absolutely no cost.

ALLO DARLIN’ GUEST DJ ON SAT 11TH FEB

On Saturday 11th February we have Elizabeth Morris from Allo Darlin‘ guest DJing us at the club!

Elizabeth has always been one of our favourite guest DJs to have at the club as she has a wonderful knack of creating a joyous atmosphere when she DJs. You can listen to her previous DJ sets on Spotify.

We’ll be playing our mix of indiepop, post-punk and new wave music. Full details on what we’ve got planned are on Facebook and doors at The Albany open at 9pm to 2am.
