Ever imagined watching live bands underneath the stars? In celebration of World Space week Glasgow Science Centre have teamed up with Detour Scotland to bring you live music under the glittering stars of our planetarium and possibly one of the most unusual gig venues in Scotland!
As part of Capture Space weekend running on the 8th and 9th October, visitors can explore the beauty and intrigue of Space through science, arts and music! Glasgow seven-piece, Remember Remember, will headline ‘Stellar Sounds’ on the 8th and play songs from their new album ‘The Quickening’ with support from Miaoux Miaoux, a.k.a. Julian Corrie. Folk n roll favourites, Meursault, will headline the Sunday night with stellar support from Glaswegian sextet, Happy Particles. All acts are guaranteed to launch star-gazers into an astro aural frenzy in one of Europe’s best planetariums!
During the course of the weekend we’ve also got ‘Written in the Stars’ workshops on both days running from 1-4pm. Audrey & Louie from Hector Bizerk (Scottish HipHop & Rap band) with support from Michelle Low (Lead Singer in The Miss’s and Madison) will deliver workshops on writing lyrics and poetry about space. Participants will also be taught the basics of rap and either get the chance to rap their lyrics or ask Louie to do it for them. Furthermore, we also have “Sounds like Space” presentations- 8th Oct at 3pm Professor Martin Hendry will deliver a presentation on Saturn with video footage and music. On 9th Oct at 3pm we have Craig Anderson, Tuba player for the Scottish Chamber Orchestra will be delivering a short workshop and then a performance in the planetarium about how space and science inspire musicians.
