The Arches presents
Sun 6 Nov 2011 | 8pm - midnight | £8 + bf
The Glitch Mob come to the Arches, Glasgow on Sunday 6th November for their first ever Scottish date.
With a huge electro sound emulating the powerful synth chords and robotic vocals of Justice or Daft Punk at their most commanding, The Glitch Mob – a trio of electro producers from L.A. – bolted into Youtube consciousness with their singles Drive It Like You Stole It and We Can Make The World Stop, both off their debut album Drink The Sea in 2010.
The group, currently Ed Ma (edIT), Justin Boreta (Boreta) and Josh Mayer (Ooah), soon became known for their live shows, performing on laptops and MIDI controllers in order to play about with their rock-and-electro-straddling sound – as hinted at in some of their biggest remixes to date, including Linkin Park, Coheed and Cambria and The White Stripes, as well as probably their most well known – two expansive, swaggering edits of TV On The Radio’s Red Dress and Daft Punk’s Derezzed.
As one of only three UK dates, this Glasgow show marks the trio’s first ever Scottish date, with support from Glasgow DJs Roman Nose.

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”
