[Gigs] Annie Mac, Bounce + More!

We will be bringing you all the latest gig listings for the underground scene in Inverness and the North of Scotland on a monthly (or perhaps weekly if you touch me in special places) basis. 

P.S we hope to have a dedicated section for this shortly, stay tuna'd. >

Lets begin.

 Annie Mac, Ironworks Saturday 18th February

Support: Them & Us, Polymath, Count Clockwork
Tickets: £15 - Click here for tickets!
Doors 10pm

Awwww yeeeeaaaahhh! We are looking forward to this one like Whitney Houston would look forward to her crack pipe.

Annie Mac takes to the decks in the Ironworks for what will be an evening of sublime dance music. Annie's Radio 1 show began in 2004 when she was working as an assistant producer on Zane Lowe's show. Her bosses began to notice her huge talent and gave her a slot, a move I am sure they have no regrets about.

Head to the comments section for an epic "I'd do 'er" gentlemen's discussion

Annie's Friday night Radio 1 show attracts a huge following both in the UK and globally. It is the soundtrack to the beginning of the weekend and brings some of the best new dance music to the masses.

As for the support acts, it looks like "The Justice Never Sleeps League of Super Best Friends"! All the DJs on the bill are BFFs of the blog, especially Them & Us who contain none other than our very own Mackz, the JNS co-founder (Mackz, y u no already mentioned this gig in the blog!?)

The other half of Them & Us is a young whipper snapper with a taste for pumping electro, 16 year old Liam McLeod. Liam and Mackz have been making some cutting edge electro of late and their song The Bomb is the first signing for Netsounds Unsigned.

Also be sure to catch the mighty Polymath and Count Clockwork in action on the night. Polymath is soon to release the driving wanger banger sawpump on Vamp music, which is receiving support from the likes of SCNTST, Kissy Sellout and Malente. He has also just finished his remix of Mason's Superimposer gaining support from Fake Blood, Alex Metric and Digitalism!

Count Clockwork too are going from strength to strength right now with their "Troika" EP being released in March on Touche Records and their new "Like Clockwork" track already gaining huge support. They have also just announced they are going to be playing a boat party in Croatia in the Summer! All aboard the S.S Sesh!

Bounce, Portland Club, Friday 2nd March
Featuring: Twidget, Dirty Wee Decks, MJ Smooth and Baron Von Filth
Doors 8pm - 1am, Entry £4

Ahhh, where would we be without Bounce! I fucking love these nights! A once staple diet of the now deceased Cake Nightclub, the boys are now holding a monthly night at the Portland Club.

I went to the first night in the Portland, oooft, what a night. I can't remember leaving but I remember being at someone's house after, then I got more seshed and somehow got home. It's all a bit of a blur really, but thats what to expect here, a good old fashioned balls out sesh with plenty of face melting choons.

Carnage merchants Twidget, Trojan, Euan Cameron, MJ Smooth and Baron Von filth will be playing a fine selection of fidget hard electro and dubstep. This is a night not to be missed and at only £4 entry, you are getting maximum bass for your buck!

Preview coming soon for Dave Clare, Ironworks the 3rd of March
and Soundclash Bass Sick Tour, Newmarket Bar Thurso, 17th of March,

So until then, here's a guy getting chased by a flying stag that shoots rockets. 
Bye for now :-)
