Subcity Radio is proud to present a series of programming to celebrate the life and work of one of the most incredible musicians that ever lived. Despite passing tragically young, Arthur managed to produce a vast catalogue of work spanning disco, avant-garde and many more. From spending time in the Talking Heads to recording Buddist chants with Allen Ginsberg, no career in music is more unique.
The series of programming will begin with the screening of the film Wild Combination (2008) at the CCA and will culminate in the broadcast of a special performance of selected works by Peter Broderick

On 17th November we mark our return to the Vic Bar with Subcity Radio’s Sweet Escape. After a special evening at the Hunterian, we think it’s about time to snuggle back into our natural habitat - the club. As the cold nights draw in, you can count on Subcity to provide the heaters as you escape to our warm haven.
THE LIVING ROOM (https://www.subcity.org/shows/livingroom/)
Kicking things off we have The Living Room to get those feel good vibes rolling - expect jazz, disco, afrobeat and other aural delights.
Next up, and needing little introduction, are the Lezure crew. Their name and reputation precedes them as perennial party wizards, lotsa magic up their sleeves.
Closing the night is the inimitable 2centavos. A truly unique take on ballroom, club, and industrial sounds to immerse your mind and body in.
£4 before midnight / £6 after All tickets OTD 18+
Please note the venue is fully accessible! If you have any questions, get in touch.
On Saturday 29th September, Subcity Radio will collaborate with the Hunterian Museum for a truly special event. This multi-sensory, audio-visual experience will showcase a selection of some of the station’s best talents, as they provide the soundtrack to your night in this unique space. Each set will be specifically curated in response to the artefacts on display and the rich history of their surroundings.
Exhibit A: Sofay
Needing little introduction, Sofay has risen to the cutting edge of the Glaswegian scene over recent years, gaining respect and admiration from peers and punters alike in equal measure along the way. Prepare to be dazzled.
Exhibit B: The Burrell Connection
Another prominent name that’s proven evergreen on the local circuit is The Burrell Connection. They bring their spell-binding set into the fray for an ambient sensory overload - this really will be something to behold.
7-10PM £8 Tickets will be available OTD
The event is strictly 18+ only
The venue is fully accessible, but please email [email protected] if you have any questions!
