French composer, songwriter and singer Marina Celeste is best known for her delicate vocals with covers band Nouvelle Vague, performing bossa nova versions of new wave classics such as Love Will Tear Us Apart, Blue Monday, The Killing Moon, Don’t Go and Heart of Glass.
With Acidulé and Cinéma Enchanté already under her belt, her latest solo album THE ANgel POP is a collaboration with Terry Hall (of legendary 80s bands The Specials) and Fun Boy Three. Offering a glimpse into the weird and wonderful inner world of the Parisian singer, the album moves towards more eclectic terrain, with Celeste inviting a band of gifted musicians to collaborate on atmospheric rock, pop and trip-hop tracks.
Support comes from Debbie Kate.
Enter through Argyle 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”
