Five upcoming nights at Glasgow School of Art's newly-reopened club space The Vic
Croc vs Croc, Numbers, Edwyn Collins, Shackleton and TYCI among highlights
UPDATE: The planned reopening of The Vic has now been delayed until 2014, with all scheduled events either postponed, cancelled or relocated. Information on ticket refunds is available at The Art School website.
The official launch party for the venue aims to establish a link to the spirit of the old, with DIY experimentalists Croc vs Croc enlisting the help of Golden Teacher in the ‘reopening of the Star Dancer Portal’. Expect installations, projections and a cosmic lineup including Murlo, Stellar Om Source, Svengalisghost, Charlotte Prodger, Portal Creators, Fem Bitch Nation, Cvnt Traxxx, DJ Los Carlos, Jackie Your Body, Liene & Hannes, Sacred Paws and David Barbarossa back-to-back with Cry Parrot’s Fielding Hope.

The tastemaking electronica label celebrates ten years on the go with a stellar return to their old stomping ground, with Hudson Mohawke, Jackmaster and Spencer supplying the tunes. Advance tickets are sold out, but there’ll be a limited allocation on the door.

Orange Juice played their first ever gig at the Art School, so it only makes sense for their leading man to help launch the new incarnation. The ‘A Girl Like You’ singer will be joined by London Mississippi, Adopted as Holograph and Peter.
Sun 15 Dec.
The bass-heavy grime / dubstep DJ joins forces with Skull Disco compatriot Appleblim, No Symbols label boss Beneath and Glasgow’s own Highlife world house gurus Auntie Flo and Esa for a unique large-scale night.
Fri 20 Dec.
The feminist zine / radio show / club night / cultural movement was co-founded by Chvrches’ Lauren Mayberry, so it’s heartening to see that she’s still in touch with her roots in the wake of global electro-pop stardom. She’ll be performing a DJ set alongside the Pretty Ugly DJs, Sons & Daughters’ Adele Bethel and some surprise guests.
