Hogmanay + New Year's Day Gigs

Hogmanay 2005/2006

After playing a set there on Monday 19 December with Belle & Sebastian's Chris Geddes, Monsieur Machine has been asked to DJ at an exclusive all-nighter in the Southside Studios, 17 Westmoreland Street off Victoria Road. This'll be rockin' so get your dancing shoes on. Other DJs and bands yet to be confirmed. The space is amazing and very intimate. Party starts at 10.00 doors will be locked by 11.00 and party will continue until very, very late. £10 ticket includes an, as yet, unspecified number of free drinks. And if that's not a bargain at this time of year what is?

New Year's Day 2006

Once again Area 51 - Jules, Shaft and yours truly - will be hosting our annual New Year's Day party in Nice 'n' Sleazy's basement. These events are usually jam-packed and full of fun. Expect lights, videos, decor and a great atmosphere not to mention those sounds and plenty of dancing. Doors at 8pm, close at 1am. Free entry.
