The Weekend

Beardyman
I'm currently writing this while it's dark outside, and I'm listening to the gale force winds that probably account for my baby waking up at 4:30am. This is not a promising start to the weekend (my husband doesn't work Fridays, so our weekend starts on Thursday) but, never the less, I'm gathering ideas for weekend fun.

Tonight

Dower & Hall will be hosting a Christmas party at the store in Princes Square. Go for cocktails, goodie bags, and discounts for your Christmas shopping.

Friday night

Okay, so apparently there's a UK Beatbox Championship. And apparently the first person to retain the title for two years is a guy called Beardyman. And apparently Beardyman has a tour called the Beardytron Beta tour. And apparently this tour takes him to the Arches Friday night. Make of that what you will.

Saturday afternoon

A special charity Roller Derby bout will be taking place at ARC at Glasgow Caledonian University from 12:30. The event is being held to raise awareness for the 16 Days of Action for the Elimination of Violence Against Women campaign (which runs from 25 November to 10 December). Proceeds from the event go to Womens Support Project, a Glasgow organisation that seeks to support those affected by violence. Participants will come from across Scotland. You can get your tickets from Facebook.

If you'd rather go Christmas shopping, textile and print studio Bespoke Atelier is hosting a pop up shopping event on a canal boat. In addition to work by Bespoke Atelier, you can also find jewellery, scarves, books, knits, model kits, cards and decorations by Scottish Canal, Flux, Libby Walker, Caroline Alexander, Jen Kent, Finch and Fourachre, Louise Smurthwaite, Aileen Tan & Maiden Glasgow, and Risotto. If you don't know who any of these crafters and designers are, come and find out! The event will be running this weekend and next.

Saturday night 

Janet Weiss, the drummer from Riot Grrrl outfit Sleater-Kinney (note to you youngsters reading - Sleater-Kinney is the band that Portlandia's Carrie Brownstein fronted) is in a band called Quasi. They'll be playing Broadcast on Saturday, supported by Hookworms and Chris Devotion and the Expectations. Watch this and feel some hardcore 90s nostalgia.



Sunday afternoon

Go behind the scenes at the Glasgow Film Theatre during their open day. With the guided tours, you'll get to see the projection booth and the new third screen. Then there will be a discussion panel and a surprise film.
