And it’s January. It’s grey, dank and frankly, we cannae be bothered getting out of our jammies. Wanna come join us in a warm basement for a few hours, full of uplifting beats, witty words, general camaraderie? Of course you do. It’s one of our Hangover Specials, after all…
Helping us along with this is one of the most stonkingly good lineups we’ve ever put on in Glasgow…it’s heating up, pals. On the stage will be…
Writer, spoken word and multidisciplinary artist whose writing, collaborations and theatre shows have taken her all over the world! Malika is one of the UK’s leading spoken word artists; this is a rare and wonderful opportunity to catch her work in Scotland. This is an absolute must see.
In her own words
‘Writing is the best way to engage the imagination, to create magic, change the world. I write because my mother tells me I am the first generation of women to be able to tell our stories and because I know there are women in the world who cannot speak. I write to make sense of life, to make the ordinary extraordinary. I write to tell stories, our stories. But most importantly, I write because I cannot do anything else. If I am not writing, then I am not breathing.’
…LOKI with BECCI WALLACE!
Two of Scotland’s best loved artists have teamed up to create something incredibly powerful, blending the best of Loki’s social commentary meets rap with Becci’s tender, powerful and wry vocals and crafted verse. We were delighted to have them at Rally & Broad in Edinburgh last year, and even more thrilled to be bringing them to Glasgow. Come experience this!

Ex Aberdonian, now Glasgow based songwriter and experimental musician whose most recent album is Peace In The Underworld. The lead single ‘Silver Rose’ has already notched up plays on BBC Introducing and 6Music and has become a live favourite. Reviews for previous work include
‘something of the epic and the ancient, and a touch of fairytale romanticism’ – musicOMH.
We’re ready for this.
Poet, academic and one of the nominees for the inaugural Edwin Morgan Poetry Award 2014. Stewart has been published widely and also translates poetry into Scots and English. We are big fans of his work – Broad has his poems stuck up in her kitchen cupboards – and excited to hear it in the flesh.
… IONA LEE!
In our New Voices slot, the unstoppabler newcomer that is Iona Lee! Recently of Edinburgh (and missed) and now based in Glasgow, Iona is carving out a name for herself with her witty, honest performances.
Jammies are absolutely encouraged. Ours is a cocoa and brandy.
