'A Masquerade Dungeon Of Ill-Repute', Sat 29 Oct, The Berkeley Suite

A Masquerade Dungeon Of Ill-Repute' 

Come. And enjoy a costumed celebration of the wicked in the comfortable surroundings of a Venetian brothel.

A special 'Halloween' live set from Organs of Love
A sleazy sonic slaying by The Executioner
Tales of a Grim(m) nature from Louna Productions
A spooky sssslice of erotic exotica from Mingo-Go
.....plus scandalous decor from 85A
and, of course, you, our masked guests

For this one-off Halloween spectacular costumed revellers will be experiencing more than just live music, Djing and story-telling. Visual stimulation abounds. Props, costumes, lighting and mysterious treats will be in store courtesy of 85A (hot from their Electric Spectacle at the Secret Garden Party), including a custom-designed set for Organs of Love. Also on board will be Mingo-Go (Death Disco, Boteco Intimo) playing a spooky, seductive, sinister selection, warming up for the first of the evening's spectacles – story-telling in a particularly grim vein. Combining wicked humour with the macabre, Grim(m) Tales are Louna Productions' (Louisa Thornton and Anna Lehr) take on the more gruesome side of the brothers Grimm. Having recently finished a month of shows at the Edinburgh festival to rave reviews this is a chance for those who missed seeing them to catch a small selection of their repertoire here in Glasgow. Following in their dark footsteps will be The Executioner making a brief mysterious appearance behind the grinding wheels of steel before Organs Of Love take to the stage. The Organs, who have been creating quite a stir of late and who have just recently been signed by Optimo Music and whose highly anticipated EP will be released in January 2012, will be performing a 'special Halloween set' just for the occasion, adding a darker, even sleazier edge to their usual warped brand of sexotronica. Finishing off the evening's proceedings, The Executioner returns, mixing vinyl and laptop in wild abandonment to propel disguised revellers further over the edge and well on their way into the mystic night.

Tickets are £5 only. Strictly limited to 200.

Removal of masks discouraged. Likewise speaking. We strongly encourage communication by touch only!
