The Yuck ‘n Yum summer 2013 launch is coming, and it’s all set to be our biggest, loudest, most spectacular event yet! From Tuesday 18th June we’re taking over Glasgow’s leading arts venue the Arches to bring you a show that will reinvent DJing as a performative artwork. We’ll be pitched up in the foyer and entrance spaces until July 22nd, and we’d love to have you join us. With acclaimed acts including Stefan Blomeier, TYCI collective, Bob Flambé and Steaming Turd.
Paying homage to the legendary Euro Dance rave at Prestwick Airport,
Street Rave parties at the Ayr Pavilion and subsequently Colours at the
Arches, Stefan Blomeier will present a selection of music rooted in the
sound of Acid house, chronicling the history of Scottish rave culture
throughout the 1990s. Bob Flambé and Steaming Turd promise to enthrall
you with a space Moog experience with abstract humorous homologies, and
TYCI will perform a theatrical DJ extravaganza.
Zines, music, art and performance are all guaranteed!
Launch event and performance 18th of June 6-8, the Arches, Glasgow. Exhibition runs until the 22nd of July featuring current cover artist
