Death Weekend set for Roxy Art House
Edinburgh venue marks Hallowe'en with themed weekend
The Roxy Art House get right into the spooky swing of things with this subtly-named collection of morbid events celebrating Hallowe’en. There’s a literary reading from satirical sci-fi guy Steve Aylett; experimental art from Alex Hetherington; live music from Real Dave And The People, Nalle and more; plus fiendish film screenings, a few disturbing club nights and the climactic end to the Edinburgh Zombie Walk. Fancy dress is highly encouraged, and best of all, many events are free, with none costing more than a fiver.
Roxy Art House, Edinburgh, Fri 29–Sun 31 Oct.
Edinburgh Zombie Walk
Join a pack of assorted freaks, ghouls and under-employed art school students to shuffle through the streets of the city infecting passers-by and walking in a mildly disconcerting manner. Meet at Banshee Labyrinth on Niddry Street for the start of the walk. It finishes up at the Roxy Art House for some sort of undead…
In a somewhat macabre manoeuvre, the Roxy Art House is giving over the weekend to a celebration of death in all its glorious (artistic, we presume) forms. Featuring live music, literary events, art happenings and cult film showings, the weekend culminates in a zombie party, for which fancy dress is advised-nay, demanded.
Readings and rantings from sci-fi author and satirist Steve Aylett, ably supported by Edinburgh's own Chemical Poets.
Special Halloween installment of live music, art, video, audio and DJ sets from musicians, artists and amateurs. 'Part of Death Weekend'.
Death Weekend Closing Party
Rock'n'roll trash, garage bands, performance, art and B-movie madness promising 'all killer, no 'Thriller'', as the Roxy's weekend of doom comes to a close. Re-enforcements from the Edinburgh Zombie Walk will be arriving from 10pm.
