The Red Room
This week, we discussed our love of peanut butter cookies, our hatred of peanut butter, and the disproportionate percentage of irreligious people in the US compared to Scotland. We also discussed our fond, fictional memories of attending protest marches as teenagers, struggled with mere concept of abbreviations, and meditated on the merits of being sceptical.
We discussed National Collective's joyously successful funding campaign, the amusing prospect of the UK's international influence declining as a result of Scottish independence, and the dangers of siding with various anti-Independence groups such as the BNP, the National Front, the Orange Order, UKIP and the Tories.
We discussed Record Store Day and all that it entailed, the prevalence of Twitter in modern culture, and the emerging brilliance of Star Trek: The Next Generation. We also discussed the inherent joy of the bass clarinet, the recent near-miss involving an aeroplane and a UFO near Glasgow airport, and the ramifications of being featured in the style section of a newspaper.
We discussed the fickle laws of gig etiquette, our favourite malt-based night-time beverages, and the prospect of an underwater nightclub in a swimming pool in Glasgow. We also listed some of our favourite fellow Subcity shows, including Lady Squalor, Le Bruit D'Azur, Source Tags and Mix Tapes, Tigerbeat, Tokyo Chill, TYCI, and Wild Combination.
We also reviewed the films Jacob's Ladder, Homeward Bound: The Incredible Journey, Cats & Dogs, Insidious, and Mama, the book And the Ass Saw the Angel by Nick Cave, the recent show celebrating Cry Parrot's sixth birthday party at The Glue Factory, and recent art exhibitions at the Centre for the Contemporary Arts and the Gallery of Modern Art.18:00 - 20:00
