12.15am Ms. Dynamite
11pm Boom Monk Ben
Back from releasing new single Neva Soft, the one time Mercury, two times BRIT and three times MOBO award-winning Ms. Dynamite is one of the freshest rappers and singers of the past decade – her crowd-teasing at the Subclub earlier this year was proof, if any were needed. Should you need proof, her rowdy, crowd-teasing performance with Magnetic Man at the Subclub earlier this year was a reminder that this woman is not only top of her game, but she’s been teaching the newcomers their steez for around ten years now.
Borrowing from hip hop, R&B, grime and UK garage, her ten-year career has seen her grow from Dy-Na-Mi-Tee and It Takes More, off debut album A Little Deeper, to the sophisticated soul-dancehall-DnB crossover of latest single Neva Soft, whilst her collaborations with the hottest stars of the moment in terms of bass music – Katy B, Redlight, Magnetic Man, Benga and DJ Zinc - seem to have cemented her reputation as the godmother of the UK scene.
Come in from the cold, and prepare to get very sweaty.
ABOUT NOISEY NIGHTS //
Noisey is a new online channel from Vice Magazine, documenting the live music experience from Noisey gigs and club nights across the world – from New York to London to Tokyo, and now to Glasgow for their first ever Noisey Nights Presents gig in the city.
Please enter through Midland Street
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”
