Damnably Presents: Say Sue Me

Say Sue Me are a Surf inspired Indie-Rock/Pop act from Busan, South Korea and cited as one of 2018's ‘break-out bands'. Childhood friends Jaeyoung Ha (Bass) and Byungkyu Kim (guitar) met drummer Semin Kang and played in bands together since winter of 2012, when they met Sumi Choi at a tea shop in Nampo-dong. They liked her speaking voice and immediately offered her a spot as the vocalist in a new band that would become Say Sue Me. Sumi turned out to be a natural at songwriting. Semin sadly suffered trauma from a fall. New drummer Changwon Kim stands in while they await Semin’s recovery.

Following showcases at SXSW in 2018, the band released their sophomore album “Where We Were Together” and a RSD covers EP which won praise from Pitchfork, NPR , Billboard, i-D, The Independent, Stereogum, Paste, MTV , Uproxx. Fader, DIS , The 405 & more.

The Fallen Angels Club Adam Holmes & The Embers plus Baskery

27-year-old Edinburgh-born singer/songwriter Adam Holmes is one of the brightest rising stars on the UK roots music scene, with influences from either side of the Atlantic mixing traditional and contemporary folk with his own brand of soul and Americana.

His first album, Heirs and Graces, was produced by John Wood (producer of all Nick Drake’s albums and John Martyn’s iconic Solid Air album) and mastered by Simon Heyworth (co-producer of Mike Oldfield’s Tubular Bells) and second album, Brighter Still, features two-time BRIT award winner Eddi Reader on backing vocals throughout.

Latest album Midnight Milk was recorded in one room in his Edinburgh flat, but came complete with full brass section, an eighteen voice choir and a widescreen folk/soul/electronica production, which was influenced by a 2016 collaboration he was involved in with Adrian Utley of Portishead, Dominic Aitchison of Mogwai and Martin Green of Lau.

Swedish sisters Baskery make their first appearance in Glasgow since 2010 and we can wait to welcome them back. The​ ​three​ ​sisters​ ​can’t​ ​recall​ ​when​ ​or​ ​why​ ​they​ ​started​ ​playing,​ ​the​ ​music’s​ ​always​ ​just​ ​been there.​ ​In​ ​their​ ​late​ ​teens,​ ​the​ ​sisters​ ​joined​ ​forces​ ​with​ ​their​ ​dad,​ ​who​ ​for​ ​decades​ ​was​ ​a one​ ​man​ ​band​ ​playing​ ​old​ ​blues​ ​and​ ​country​ ​tunes​ ​for​ ​a​ ​living.

The Fallen Angels Club Robbie Fulks

Robbie Fulks is a singer, recording artist, instrumentalist, composer, and songwriter. His most recent release, 2017’s Upland Stories, earned year’s best recognition from NPR and Rolling Stone among many others, as well as two Grammy nominations, for folk album and American roots song (Alabama At Night).

Fulks was born in York, Pennsylvania, and grew up in a half-dozen small towns in southeast Pennsylvania, the North Carolina Piedmont, and the Blue Ridge area of Virginia. He learned guitar from his dad, banjo from Earl Scruggs and John Hartford records, and fiddle (long since laid down in disgrace) on his own. He attended Columbia College in New York City in 1980 and dropped out in 1982 to focus on the Greenwich Village songwriter scene and other ill-advised pursuits.

In 1983 he moved to Chicago and joined Greg Cahill’s Special Consensus Bluegrass Band. He taught music at Old Town School of Folk Music from 1984 to 1996, and worked as a staff songwriter on Music Row in Nashville from 1993 to 1998. His early solo work — Country Love Songs (1996) and South Mouth (1997) — helped define the alternative country movement of the 1990s.

His music from the last several years hews mainly to acoustic instrumentation; it returns him in part to his earlier bluegrass days, and extends the boundaries of that tradition with old-time rambles and sparely orchestrated reflections on love, the slings of time, and the troubles of common people.

“There are many good living songwriters. But then you hear a new Robbie Fulks record, and you can’t remember who they are.” – Chicago

He had made a rare visit to these shores earlier that year for his show with James McMurtry at Celtic Connections, and stunned a capacity crowd into hushed silence when he took the stage at Oran Mor.

Since returning to his home in Tennessee, Nathan has recorded a brand new album to be released here just before he returns. A live album recorded in front of a sold-out crowd in Wales during his last visit will also get a UK release this year.

Ikarie XB-1 (Voyage to the End of the Universe)

Jindrich Polak, Czechoslovakia 1963, 86min, English subtitles

With Zdeněk Štěpánek, František Smolík, Dana Medřická. Set design Jan Zázvorka, Costumes Ester Krumbachová, Jan Skalický and Vladimír Synek. With an introduction by Marketa Uhlirova

Ikarie XB -1 is an ambitious science fiction space opera, possibly best known for prefiguring many visual and thematic motifs of Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey. Made in the midst of the Cold War, this ‘Space Marienbad’, as one critic called it, epitomises the era’s raging space race and cultural competition between the East and the West. The film portrays an idealised communist civilisation circa 2163, as it embarks on a voyage beyond our solar system. Its real protagonist is a monumental discovery spaceship, a self-contained world in miniature designed to impress the world with its vision of a highly advanced lifestyle, as imagined by a small socialist country. Its 22nd century costumes are no less steeped in the ideology of utopianism, something that is especially driven home when ‘ancient people’ of the 20th century are discovered deep in space.

The film will be introduced by Marketa Uhlirova, an art historian with an interest in the display, representation and mediation of fashion and dress, especially in the moving image. In 2005 she co-founded the Fashion in Film Festival, the first major exhibition, research and education project to explore the common ground between the worlds of fashion, cinema and art. Her film programmes have been hosted by arts venues internationally, including Tate Modern, Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA ), Barbican, BFI Southbank, Danish Film Institute and Museum of the Moving Image, New York. She is currently co-curating, with Tom Gunning, the 10th anniversary festival season entitled ‘Wearing Time: Past, Present, Future, Dream’, for February/March 2017. Since 2006 Uhlirova has edited Fashion in Film's publications, including, most recently, Birds of Paradise: Costume as Cinematic Spectacle (2013, winner of The Most Beautiful Swiss Book Award in 2014) and Marcel L'Herbier: Dossier (2014, with Caroline Evans). Her articles and book chapters have appeared in publications including Aperture, Art Monthly, AnOther, Fashion Theory, Fashion Media: Past & Present (ed. D. Bartlett, S. Cole and A. Rocamora, 2014), and Czech Cinema Revisited: Politics, Genres, Techniques (ed. L. Česálková, 2016).

Ikarie XB -1 is screened as part of the event programme for CCA 's upcoming exhibition A Weakness for Raisins, on the life and work of Ester Krumbachová,which runs from 8 December - 27 January. More information on the exhibition can be found at the CCA website.

The exhibition and film programme is organized by CCA Glasgow and Are | are-events.orgin collaboration with Panel and in partnership with Glasgow Film Theatre; Czech Centre London; Czech Film Fund; National Film Archive, Prague; BIONAUT ; The Film and TV School of the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague; Czech Television; MAP Magazine; and Second Run; and supported by Creative Scotland, Glasgow City Council, the Ministry of Culture Czech Republic, Prague City Hall, and the Czech Centre London.

NEW VENUE Queer Classics I would rather be a cyborg than a goddess

Please note this event is now taking place at Govanhill Picture House, 49 Bankhall Street, Glasgow

I would rather be a cyborg than a goddess is a one-off screening event held in the unique surroundings of Govanhill Picture House, presented by Queer Classics Film Festival. Screening back-to-back will be Kenneth Anger’s ground-breaking Lucifer Rising (1972) with live score by Kim Moore, followed by Ursula Mayer’s Gonda (2012) with an introduction from the screenplay author, Maria Fusco. Thematic strands include intersectional eco-feminism, spectacle, ritual and technology, informed by Donna Haraway’s Cyborg Manifesto (1991).

19:00 – doors 19:30 – Maria Fusco speaking on her screenplay for Gonda 20:00 – Gonda by Ursula Mayer 20:30 – Lucifer Rising by Kenneth Anger 21:00 – all welcome to a local pub

Staged in this historic site, I would rather be a cyborg than a goddess seeks to reanimate and queer the former cinema, bring to the forefront the queer labours historically behind film production. With her cast of queer, non-binary actors in Gonda, Mayer draws on our relationship to the organic world, information technology and personhood. Sprawling, dusty landscapes are traversed by the stunning, timeless, transgender model Valentijn de Hingh, her costumes, futuristic yet goddess-like, calling to mind Haraway’s quote that titles the event and, in some way, parody ‘futuristic’ costume of 1960s/’70s film history.

Paired with this is Kenneth Anger’s most iconic feature film, Lucifer Rising. To paraphrase Bobby Beausoleil, the rise of Lucifer depicted in the film marks the end of the epoch of matriarchy ‘to patriarchy where the goddess is male’.

SANE WTF is Neoliberalism?

N-E-O-L-I-B-E-R-A-L-I-S-M

Perhaps you have heard this word before. Maybe it sounds — quite rightly — like jargon. Chances are that even if you don’t spend every spare hour brushing up on politics, at some point in each day you will feel the impacts of Neoliberalism or bear witness to its effect on your community. But despite being the dominant political story of our time, Neoliberalism is rarely discussed amongst the population. This 11-session course is a response to this state of affairs.

In times of crazy inequality, anti-immigration, an insane clown President, austerity and impending climate breakdown, you might have a sense that something is not right with the world. It seems all the more important that we create a space which allows people to make sense of the mad times we are in.

We aim to create an inclusive space for discussion and learning. We hold a dangerous belief that education can be great fun, participatory and help us develop the skills to participate in society.

This course is for all types of learner: we do not care if you are politically active or not. All are welcome. Just bring your curiosity with you.

WTF is Neoliberalism operates in two parts. Part 1 has six classes running from the 9th of May to the 18th of July (every second week). Part 2 has five classes from September to December.

Please sign-up via this BrownPaperTickets link.

Saramago presents ESCAPE-ISM (Ian Svenonius) + special guests

Only ten months after he provided us with an Introduction to Escape-ism, mythic rock ’n’ roll provocateur / theorist / revolutionary Ian Svenonius is back as Escape-ism with The Lost Record, a classic destined to bewitch the minds, hearts, and dancing shoes of any rock ’n’ roll fan who happens to discover it, for as long as such creatures exist. Without the high-octane hype machine of the mind-control minstrels who hypnotize the hapless through the mass media, The Lost Record is bound for inevitable obscurity, but—with its timeless tunes, poignant message, and innovative sound—rediscovery and immortal status is equally assured! The Lost Record, being what it is, has enormous selling potential. Music enthusiasts will be thrilled to be the ones clever and kind enough to have rescued this platter from oblivion.

Recorded in four different studios—Gaucho in Los Angeles, Flat Black in Iowa, Tonal Park in Takoma Park, MD , and at Club Blasé in DC —the record is the culmination of humanity’s attempt at something poignant, perverse, and poetically imperfect.

Guillaume Apollinaire also pushed the boundaries of what poetry can be. In Paris he befriended many avant-garde artists, including Matisse, Picasso, de Chirico and Duchamp. His brief career influenced the development of such artistic movements as Futurism, Cubism, Dadaism, and Surrealism

There will short talks on their life and works and Mirrorball members will read some of their personal favourites
