DF Concerts present
Sat 6 Dec 2014 | 7pm-10pm | SOLD OUT | 14+ (Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult aged 18+)
Rising stars of the increasingly thriving Scottish synthpop scene, Stewart Brock (piano, lead vocals), Callum Wiseman (guitar, piano, vocals) and Lewis Gardner (drums) are Prides. Their debut EP ‘The Seeds You Sow’ dropped earlier this year, causing big waves in the Scottish indie and pop communities, drawing comparisons to CHVRCHES, Pet Shop Boys and Tears For Fears. The band played the closing ceremony of the recent 2014 Commonwealth Games, whilst earlier in the year, they wowed the crowds at SxSW, and embarked on a short tour of the USA.
Championed by Jim Gellatly, The Guardian, and countless bloggers, the band’s reputation continues to grow. Due to increased demand, this show has been moved from Glasgow’s Òran Mór to The Arches – all original tickets remain still valid.
14+ (Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult aged 18+)
Enter via Argyle Street
THIS EVENT IS NOW SOLD OUT
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”
