Numbers and The Arches present
Wed 26 Feb 2014 | 7pm-10pm | £16 adv | Tickets available on the door
Please note: All gigs at The Arches have not been affected by recent changes to our club age restrictions, and this event remains a 14+ event, with all under 16s to be accompanied by an adult aged 18 or over.
An endlessly funny, inventive artist, Brown’s debut album XXX was released for free download in 2011 and lapped up by hip hop critics from Spin (who named it the best hip hop album of 2011), Pitchfork and more. His second, Old, was released in August 2013, featuring a plethora of guests including Freddie Gibbs, Schoolboy Q, Mr. MFN eXquire, Scrufizzer, A$AP Rocky, Ab-Soul, Charli XCX and Purity Ring.
His show at The Arches in June 2013, in the midst of fresh controversy regarding onstage antics, was one of the craziest events of the venue’s season, and we expect his anticipated return to be nothing less spectacular.
As part of the Glasgow Film Festival, accompanying the show will be a series of short videos by director Rollo Jackson. Jackson’s credits include the acclaimed documentary on mixtape culture Tape Crackers as well as videos for James Blake, Hot Chip and Danny Brown’s single Dip, which was partly filmed at The Arches on Danny’s last visit here in June 2013.
Buy your tickets now for one of the hip hop shows of the year. Support comes from Vic Mensa.
14+ (Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult aged 18+)
Please enter through Argyle Street entrance

As Scotland’s original superclub, the Arches is the stuff of clubbing legend. There really is no other venue like it in the world.
Repeatedly voted one of the top 100 clubs in the world in DJ magazine, the industrial brick arches are home to a continuous roster of the world’s most in demand DJs and producers from across the dance spectrum, whether it be minimal techno, big bassline electro, hardstyle, deep house, UK bass, dubstep or trance.
With a Funktion 1 soundsystem and three fully stocked bars spread over six subterranean arches, the space is transformed each weekend depending on the faces behind the decks. From huge, sell out nights with platinum selling Ibiza trendsetters such as Alesso and Laidback Luke or legendary acts such as Fatboy Slim, Carl Cox and Jeff Mills, to the hottest, most-hyped names on the dance scene’s lips – from Jamie Jones and Nina Kraviz to Jackmaster and Omar S, ours is one of the most diverse club programmes in the city.
As well as the Arches’ own club nights, which have recently brought the likes of Hot Creations label, Madeon and Chase & Status to the venue, for many fans the Arches is synonymous with either of its two biggest nights, Pressure and Colours.
Slam have now been playing and promoting in the Arches since 1992 with their monthly techno and house night Pressure celebrating it’s 16th anniversary in November 2014. Normally taking place on the last Friday of the month, Pressure sees the biggest names in the game playing regularly, with guests like Richie Hawtin, Ben Klock, Laurent Garnier, Joris Voorn, Maya Jane Coles, Pan-Pot, Chris Liebing, Dave Clarke, Len Faki, Dubfire, Gary Beck, Visonquest, Heidi, Vitalic and Green Velvet joining resident DJs Slam in recent times.
Scotland’s biggest dance promoter, Colours regularly bring the biggest and best names in big room house, tech-house, electro and trance to the venue, with recent guests including Alesso, Otto Knows, Laidback Luke, Dannic, Hardwell, Markus Schulz, Showtek, Gareth Emery, Nervo, AN21 & Max Vangeli, Nicky Romero and many more.
