We’re excited to bring you an electric night of entertainment courtesy of Gamma Ray Dali and Confusion Is Sex. “Caught somewhere between a sizzling art-house project and an electro-punk burlesque club”, Confusion Is Sex is a multi-sensory clubbing experience that has been fast evolving into one of the most respected underground nights in Scotland, fusing live art, burlesque, belly dancers, circus acts, DJs, bands, theatre and more.
“One of the most exciting bands on the planet right now” according to BBC Scotland, Bossy Love brings phenomenal live drumming and sugar-sweet vocals laced with the kind of magic that defies description.
A heavy blues, rock n roll band with a lot of soul, Black Cat Bone come equipped with a pounding rhythm section, layered vocals, catchy guitar riffs, heavy distortion and hollering harmonica.
Singer/songwriter Amy Hawthorn opens the evening of music with “beautifully pitched vocals” (The Stage).
Female electro DJ duo created and styled by Gamma Ray Dali, DJ’s Heidi Hertz are naughty rebel misfits with sexy electro mixes and bitchin beats drawing on a diverse range of soul, funk, pop, blues, electro and techno tunes.
