The Buff, Glasgow, Fri 28 Sep
There is a now an alternative to the customary quick drink after work and it comes in the form of the SoCo Social, a series of free gigs in Glasgow that run from 6pm until 10pm. The first event took place in July with Norman Jay MBE manning the decks and it was like nothing previously witnessed at The Buff. ‘It was unusual to see a dancefloor filled so early in the evening, it went down really, really well,’ explains one of the promotion team. ‘Certainly the feedback we had from everybody that came through at the start of the evening was that it was exciting and new.’
With more than 300 revellers at the inaugural show, the people behind this unusual event are positive that Tom Findlay of Groove Armada will pull in just as big of a crowd. You may be forgiven for thinking that the only people who would consider going dancing at that hour of the night are retired clubbers who still fancy a bit of a dance. However, SoCo’s promoter is adamant that that is not the case. ‘The crowd generally are into their music. They are into coming to see good DJs that would be traditionally headlining and that maybe wouldn’t be on until one o’clock in the morning,’ he says. And with free Southern Comfort on offer to punters, it looks like a top evening on the tiles.
The List and SoCo have teamed up to offer ten pairs of guest tickets for Tom Findlay’s gig at the Buff Club, Glasgow, Fri 28 Sep. See Offers, page 6 in the magazine.
