“Fridge Magnets are Scotland’s buzziest/drunkest band” NME (Radar). Championed by Huw Stephens, Annie Mac and Nick Grimshaw, the band won Best Electronic Act at this year's Scottish Alternative Music Awards and the Electronic Music Maker Awards.
A young 5 piece band from Aberdeen and Glasgow, Fridge Magnets’ gigs are more like chaotic mini-raves than traditional rock shows, packed to the rafters with the kin of the Trainspotting generation, who, judging by the live footage, get stuck in with the kind of wild abandon their parents would be proud of.
Fridge Magnets made significant waves earlier this year with a handful of demos, including ‘Feeling Grows’, the track that made it onto the Radio 1 ‘In New Music We Trust’ Playlist (without the help of a radio plugger). ‘She Don’t Dance’ is their first ‘proper’ single, produced by Herve.
The band’s legendary early gigs at the likes of ABC 2 and King Tuts gave rise to a local buzz that soon saw them booked for Rockness, T In The Park and Belladrum, alongside tour support slots for Calvin Harris, Alex Metric and The Japanese Popstars.
Couple this success with two award wins and you have an outfit who are being chased by live agents and major label A&R’s alike. Meanwhile, ‘She Don’t Dance’ has been picked up by Distiller Records (Sound Of Guns, Funeral For A Friend, The Ramona Flowers, Fractures) for a one-off release.
Free entry in full Halloween costume before 11.30pm.
Tickets for this event are available from the venue box office, and can be purchased at face value if payment is made in cash. The night finishes at 4am.
