Mix_Up_Mayhem Returns, and We’ve Got the Line Up


After being on a bit of a break since last year Mix_Up_Mayhem returns in March.

Moving to it’s new home of Bar Bloc, the first return gig takes place on March 25th, and we’ve snagged a wee exclusive on who will be playing on the night, but first here’s a little re-introduction to what it is.

Mix_Up_Mayhem is the brainchild of Glasgow Podcart’s Ally Burton and brings something a bit different to the over crowded live scene. Rather than just play their usual sets the bands taking part are presented with a challenge, they have to throw in a few covers too, as they tackle a well known song, along with a song by one of the other bands playing on the night. Past Mix-Ups have seen performances from Make Sparks, The Winter Tradition, Pacific Theatre, Little Yellow Ukuleles, boygirlanimalcolour, Call Me Ishmael, Any Color Black, Nevada Base and Pooch.
When the line-up for the return gig was whispered to me a few weeks back my eyes went wide, my jaw a little slack, and one thought ran through my head – this will be awesome.
Playing at Mix_Up_Mayhem: The Return are… (drum roll)
An acoustic set to open from Jim McNaulty
Afterwards Bloc’s late license will be put to the test, with Amanda Mitchell DJing until 3am, and it is all free.
Hold on to your face, or it just might be blown off.
There’s also the promise of Limited Edition T-shirts on sale and exclusive remixes too by Jamie Daisuke Sturt (Oh You Dancer). These will become available afterwards exclusively to those present via download code.
