Palace and The Arches present

Understanding Lil B isn’t necessarily simple, you only need to check half of the comments on his YouTube to see that, but explaining his persona takes a little away from it. We believe he’s one of the boldest hip hop artists around and certainly subscribes to the Based philosophy. The tight surroundings of Nice N Sleazy should only add to the raw energy of the night, allowing a small audience to witness B perform a select slice of his massive library of tracks.
It seemed only natural to get Lucky Me’s Eclair Fifi involved. If anyone is reppin Lil B, it’s Lucky Me. Whether it’s Lunice showing off his cooking skills on the Boiler Room or the label inviting B to play at one of their parties in Canada. As the first lady of Lucky Me, Eclair Fifi is a name that rings out far beyond Scottish soil, with her eclectic, instinctive selections filling dancefloors from Sneaky Pete’s to Sonar.
The Palace project hopes to channel and showcase the creative spirit of the Glasgow scene and it’s future direction, so without any Lucky Me representation there would certainly be a void. We really feel that Eclair FiFi’s appearance is the perfect compliment to the Based God.
Also on the bill is Mexican born, Glasgow based Sega Bodega. The slick ‘spic has began to receive attention this year with a string of excellent bootleg productions as well as an official remix of Jakwob’s Electrify. The year ahead looks brighter still with future releases and remixes to come.
This event takes place at Nice N Sleazy, 421 Sauchiehall Street, G2 3LG
Legendary international acts, cult festivals and the most exciting new bands collide at one of the city’s most eclectic live venues.
It’s perhaps natural that, as one of the nation’s most unusual live music venues, our programme spans rock, pop, indie, electronica, soul, jazz, country, metal, folk, and the many sub-genres inbetween. The unique atmosphere and space of the building means it’s often used for anything from intimate acoustic gigs to stage-diving, sweaty rammies and slick, spectacular international concerts.
Supporting the best examples of the known and the not-so-known, the Arches stage is host to everything from the latest stars of leftfield pop, such as Grimes and Chvrches, to alternative indie rock acts such as Peace and Yeasayer, prog and rock heroes such as The Fall, Swans and Dinosaur Jnr, and cutting edge electronic talent, from Rustie to James Blake.
We also regularly plays host to international legends – from Martha Reeves to Ben E. King to Jane Birkin – and provide the perfect multi-room setting for various festivals, from Celtic Connections to the Glasgow Jazz Festival. In 2012, the hallowed arches played hosted to the UK-wide Africa Express tour, featuring Damon Albarn, Baaba Maal and a trainload of world music stars, and in 2013, the building was transformed into a sonic Cineplex for our own co-curated cult event the Glasgow Music and Film Festival, featuring live film scores and AV sets from Jeff Mills, Dieter Moebius and Raime.
“A classical gig in the vaults of Scotland’s dance mecca might sound an odd prospect, but the Arches proved the perfect setting”
