Thursday 11th February 2016 (Doors 7.30pm)


Fresh from accruing massive airplay on Radio 1 with their colossal and anthemic new single 'Always' the band have revealed details of one of their biggest tours to date. Having inked their major label deal with Easy Life/Sony Music, all indications would suggest that this is the year where Fatherson transcend the underground and truly become a force to be reckoned with in the UK's flourishing alternative Rock scene.

A Night With... CHRIS DUCKENFIELD
Friday 12th February 2016


At last we got our man…and are very excited to announce A Night With... UK House hero CHRIS DUCKENFIELD! In 1989 Chris got his first residency and started to learn the art of making people dance and putting records together ‘on the job’. Since then he has become recognized as one of the best and most talented exponents of the DJ art ever to have emerged out of the UK.

RRP Proudly Present HARRI & DOMENIC
Friday 19th February 2016


1994 saw Harri join forces with one of Glasgow’s most talented young DJs, Domenic Cappello. Together they created Subculture, the Sub’s flagship weekly Saturday night. Over 20 years on, Subculture - with Harri and Domenic still at the helm, is the longest running weekly House night in the UK and very possibly worldwide.

Book Club - DENSE & PIKA - Ch. 59
Saturday 27th February 2016


Well, what can we say. We have been wanting to get Dense & Pika up to our Book Club for a long time now, and we have finally done it. Their back catalgoue has been the soundtrack to many a party for us, and if you've been to any Book Clubs before you will have danced to their music. We are very excited to have them play, and will be at the front dancing with the rest of you lot. If we can show them half the enthusiasm and atmosphere as we had at the last chapter then they are in for a treat.
