Gabriel has chosen to launch his new album at this relaxed Friday nighter.

Sounds perfect for the loft space at the Universal. The Universal, Fri 9 Jan.

He also happens to be an immensely talented DJ in 2004. Never afraid to press the buttons that get a reaction from a crowd. he should go down a storm at Death Disco. The Arches, Sat 77 Jan.

Festa Brasil Brazilian music is steadily growing in popularity amongst clubbers. The tropicalismo style lends itself to letting loose. And carnival time is expanding in Glasgow with this new night from Tiff Peaches (Sub Club. Radio Magnetic. Bebado) and friends. Carnival Arts Centre, Sat 77 Jan.

Streetlife Rewind These guys don’t give very much away in advance. Either they enjoy puzzling folk or they just wing it. Either way. the results are good.
