“For the first time as a duo, Black Heart Procession will perform a full European tour. You’ll hear the songs in their pure form: slow and empty, like your life, or a bottle of whisky. So, if your relationship is cursed, or you have no one to share your sorrows with, don’t miss this gig. You might just find that perfect person to ruin the rest of your life with.”
Californian indie band The Black Heart Procession is the prolific – and darker - project of Three Mile Pilot’s Pall Jenkins and Tobias Nathaniel. Formed in 1997, the pair started out performing as a duo, before gradually enlisting the help of their San Diego musican friends to create live shows which often swelled to as many as eight performers.
For this stripped back show, singer/guitarist Jenkins and talented multi-instrumentalist Nathaniel return to their original roots as a duo, performing a mix of old and new tracks.
Enter on 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”
