The second Lighthouse Late takes place on Fri 29 May at the titular Lighthouse, Scotland’s Centre for Design and Architecture in Glasgow. The event is a celebration of fashion, design, music and cinema sprawling across all five floors of the venue, plus film screenings, pop-up shops and DJ sets.
Here’s what to expect on the night:
Live music from Prides
Stars of the Glasgow synthpop scene, Prides mix their sound with electro indie. Debut EP The Seeds You Sow drew comparisons to Chvrches, Pet Shop Boys and Tears for Fears, plus you might have seen them rocking the Commonwealth Games closing ceremony last year.
Live music from KLOË
Just 18 years old, KLOË exploded onto the scene back in December with an electro pop single, ‘Grip’, and has an EP due out later this year. We spoke to her about her manic year back in March.
Live music from Man of Moon
Psychedelic, groove-infused blues rockers, who are due to disappear into the studio pretty soon to get on with recording and cementing a big 2015.
Live music from Kill the Waves
Glasgow based quintet playing dreamy, experimental pop music that combines glitchy electronic beats with driving bass lines, post rock guitar effects and atmospheric strings.
Selections from the 2015 Glasgow Film Festival programme will be shown throughout the night. With a 'dressing up, going out and behaving badly' theme (sounds right up our alley), there’ll be a mix of animation, fiction, documentary and artists’ moving image.
The chance to get your spend on comes in the form of:
Saunt & Sinner
Glasgow-based luxury womenswear brand, conceptualised by Grays School of Art designers Emma Noble and Toni Roddie who have dressed Emeli Sandé and Burberry model Sophie Kennedy.
Tea Green Market
Known for their pop-up appearances across the country, Tea Green Market pride themselves on showcasing the best of Scottish creative talent and making unique shopping experiences for all customers.
A new menswear brand from the former Head of Design at Nigel Cabourn and Creative Director at Common People. Latest collection ‘White Noise’ is inspired by static audio and visual waves from old television sets.
Colourful vintage and reproduced clothing from Edinburgh’s Emily Millichip, inspired by, in her own words, ‘cheap red wine, crazy grannies and trash culture.’
Host for the evening is Nicola Meighan who’ll be taking to the decks to get you all on your feet.
What you’re really interested in: complimentary drinks. All Lighthouse Late ticket holders (over 18s only) are entitled to two free drinks, courtesy of Innis & Gunn and Brugal Rum.
