Well, actually we've been 5 since August but we've put off celebrating so we could put together an appropriately dynamite, party bill with our pals at Gold Flake Paint, continuing our SUCKER PUNCH festival ideals of impeccably curated shows!

Come and help us celebrate this inconceivable milestone with:

We've been hoping to get Bossy Love to the cafe for ages and we're delighted that they were able to make this special event. THE essential Glasgow party are enigmatic duo, singer-come-mechanical scientist Amandah Wilkinson (formally Operator Please) and ex Dananananaykroyd drummer/ BBQ restaurateur John Baillie Jnr, Bossy Love aren’t your typical RnB/Pop pair.

Lauded by critics as ‘one to watch’ after they self released tracks ‘Sweat It Out,’ and ‘Body’ last year, both quickly earned the band a dedicated following.

The powerful debut single that followed, ‘Want Some’ released on Nightwave’s tastemaker label Heka Trax this March treated listeners ears to their next dose of ‘tropical R&B’ meets hard hip hop beats, with remixes from the label boss herself and Big Dope P (Ninja Tune / LuckyMe). Securing plays across BBC Radio 1Xtra, Beats 1, Kiss FM as well as a whole lot of love from the blogosphere; Dummy, Fader, Clash, Earmilk, GOLDFLAKEPAINT and more all boarding the Bossy train.

Live Bossy Love are a force to be reckoned with. Experienced touring artists they come without trepidation ready to convert the new and excite the faithful. Creamy sounds, samples and lyrics delivered with a zero-fucks magnetic punk attitude, “It’s a brave band that allows Bossy Love to open for them. Pure heat from the very first bar, the Glaswegian trio transform a sparse, early doors crowd into a fully fledged front row dance party.” — The Skinny

Babe is the brainchild of the uber-talented Gerard Black (ex-Francois & the Atlas Mountains, Bill Wells, etc). Tonight Gerard will perform a solo set stripping down the electro, synth-pop stylings of their 2017 album, Kiss & Tell to delicate and pristine vocal and piano.

«It’s not that the current Glasgow scene has become stale, more that it’s currently pushing a slew of scuzzy guitar bands to the forefront of its window-front. Which makes the debut EP from Happy Spendy even more compelling and noticeable. Released, as the true hidden gems are, with little fanfare or glamour last month, “You Look Lovely” offers three mellow and melodramatic tracks from Eimear (Derry born, Glasgow based) and co. which acts as the first glimpse in to the project’s subtle electro-pop sketches. Sometimes wistful, occasionally romantic, and always packed full of restless longing… A very impressive starting-point.» GoldFlakePaint
