“Neo-Psychedelic Outlaws: Druggy drone-rock, repetitive driven melodies, snarling riffs and heavy-footed rhythms…”
The Kundalini Genie (Glasgow, UK)
The Kundalini Genie is a psychedelic, experimental rock ‘n’ roll band from Glasgow.
Stony Sugarskull (Berlin, DE/LA, USA)
Hailing from Berlin, Germany, Stony
Sugarskull (Landon Reed/bass, Reid Murray/drums, Monika Demmler/vox, guitar) play a gorgeously haunting and hypnotic
psychedelic rock that is both mysterious and hugely
enigmatic. Her ghostly sound is right at home with the
likes of The Warlocks, The Vacant Lots and Mazzy Star,
as it invokes images of things like a peyote-inspired
séance in a dark, candle strewn urban attic or an
aimless wander through a moonlit desert at three o’clock
in the morning (Record Crates United). Her unique vocal
style and delivery is not only playful, innocent, ironic, and
clever, but also serious, even spiritual. It’s very distinctive –
a kind of detached arty Velvets thing happening (Happy Beat Recordings).
Tuesday 21st August 7:30pm
Dedicated to creating synchronicities, serendipities and misunderstandings, Soup, Zuppa is a place for everyone interested in improvised and experimental music. Working with the premise that all mistakes can be integrated, we are interested in bringing together people from different backgrounds to experiment and improvise in an open atmosphere. Musical education is absolutely not necessary and we would encourage everyone who had one to forget as much of it as possible.
Groups of performers will be put together after a 20min Soup at the beginning of the evening in which all participants play simultaneously. If you would like to participate, please let us know how much space you will need and what equipment you will bring. We would like to ask all electronic musicians to bring their own speakers, as we won´t have a PA installed in the space and all participants will be located throughout the space.

FM2U Music Conference
Saturday 1st September, Midday – 6pm
FM2U Glasgow 2018 is supported by HMUK and sponsored by EmuBands.
From me to you (#FM2U): A one-day music conference specifically from and for independent musicians.
The only music conference specifically from and for independent musicians is coming to Glasgow for the first time on September 1st at the Old Hairdresser’s.
From me to You (#FM2U) is a music conference specifically from and for artist entrepreneurs and their supporters. Celebrating music makers and innovators in the new music industry, FM2U acts as a platform for artists to share experiences, contacts and ideas. The event will feature four panel debates with topics pertinent to independent musicians, as well as networking opportunities and live music in form of musical keynotes by inspirational artists.
Previous FM2U speaker’s have included artists Imogen Heap, She Makes War, SaoDow, FEMME, representatives from Spotify, AIM, PRS, the arts the FAC, Resonate, legendary music manager Keith Harris, as well as Coda Agency, FRUKT and many more.
Artist and creator of FM2U, Roxanne de Bastion, says:
“The decentralisation of the industry has allowed for new models to emerge and for pro-active musicians and their supporters to create and stay in charge of their careers – it’s a really exciting time to be a musician!”
FM2U invites all pro-active, full-time musicians, their supporters, or those wishing to learn more about how to be one, to come along to The Old Hairdresser’s. The conference starts at noon on Saturday, September 1st.
