5th Birthday Party!

5th Birthday Indiepop Dance Party Extravaganza!
Friday 17th of October
11pm to 3am

Mixtapes, badges and cake for early arrivals.

The Wee Red Bar
Edinburgh College of Art
Lauriston Place

Since our mildly auspicious beginnings in October 2009, Unpop has developed into quite a fixture of the Edinburgh music scene. Since then, we've had some fantastic guest dj sets from the likes of Pat Nevin, Withered Hand and the Edinburgh Man, put on a plethora of gigs and released a handful of tapes by Edinburgh's stupendous indie poppers The Spook School, the just brilliant Just Joans and the crazily good Coach Longlegs. Most of all, we've been engaged participants in the struggle for FUN.

Unpop's gone on tour too. We've had some excellent times dj-ing at Indietracks festival in Derbyshire, Popklubb in Newcastle, Scared To Dance and HDIF in London, and Kaffibarrinn in Reykjavik. We've also put on some indie pop dance parties in fair Glasgow.

However, Edinburgh is still its home, and our night is inextricably linked with the art school environs of the Wee Red (as well as the obligatory after party at Adam's flat in deepest, darkest Morningside...).

Come down for our 5th birthday party, where the obligatory cakes, sweets, tapes and general awesomeness awaits. Party on! Expect to hear Expect to hear the likes of: Felt, Hefner, Orange Juice, Deerhoof, Camera Obscura, Jens Lekman, The Pastels, Tullycraft, The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart, Pavement, Talulah Gosh, A Smile And A Ribbon, The Magnetic Fields, Neutral Milk Hotel, Bearsuit, Los Campesinos! Vivian Girls, Bis, The Smiths, Ballboy, Kenickie, Helen Love, The Bobby McGees, The Hidden Cameras.

Wear your heart on your sleeve and shoes you can shimmy in. The fey will rise again!
