Eclectic Peel


Somehow managed to miss this off the gig guide this week. Exhibition runs from the 4th – 11th of December, with a special launch night of the 4th. On with the details…
December 4th sees Glasgow Podcart launch their biggest exhibition/event to date. The newly regenerated Barras Courtyard will house something extremely special for 1 week only
Glasgow Podcart have selected over 20 artists of all disciplines. This includes musicians, photographers, animators, illustrators, a sculptor, dancers and we even have a fashion designer! We have then paired these different artists up and asked them to create an original piece of work. The theme we have chosen is the late, great inspirational DJ: John Peel.
The exhibition will run from December 4th – December 11th; however we will be kicking things off with a fantastic live launch on the evening of December 4th. This will include special live music performances and refreshments not to mention the abundance of artwork that will be on show!
The aforementioned Barras Courtyard is beginning to establish itself as something vitally important in Glasgow and to prove this it houses two notable vintage retailers. Made In The Shade and Che Camille have both opened up shops in this breathtaking space. We will be transforming the courtyard into something visually stunning at night for Eclectic Peel and we hope you can come and be part of this!

They will be performing a very special set to pay homage to the legendary John Peel and his memory. If you have yet to experience Blochestra then you are in for something heart lifting.
Esperi will be performing a very eclectic set with some special surprises and will have the aid of Mal Young and RM * 3D visuals to round off the evening.
Oh, and be nice to the guy on the door please.
