This is a sssssshhhhhh event a STFU evening.

Moving north, IMP welcomes The Slow Club from Glasgows Flying Duck residency to The Tunnels. Retaining the feel and theme of a candlelit, late night `shebeen` or after hours `lock in`, The Slow Club promises live music and film. The Slow Club embraces a diverse, oblique musical policy modern electronic, soundtrack, abstract, drone, drunken jazz, tango says D.J Michael Feeney. DJ and performing bands compliment classic movies projected on the night. Previous movies shown have included works by Feuillade, Murnau, Vigo, Cocteau, Bresson, Fellini, Antonioni, Kiarostami and Bela Tar. Performing in Aberdeen will be Edinburgh experimental unit ARCS (former members of Annie Christian) and underground Glasgow band SMACKVAN.

A wonderful & unique experience awaits those who want a Sunday evening of quiet entertainment & sonics. For the first time in Aberdeen we are trying to establish a twice yearly event in conjunction with Slow Club Glasgow. Every evening will has one CLASSIC film projected while guest live artists play a soundtrack in the mood of the evening, slow, reflective, dark, thoughtful whilst some light twinkles in a quiet way. We don't know what the film will be we don't know what the playlist will be but for certain Smackvan are truly wonderful, accessible & the nearest comparison is none barring a wee nod to Tindersticks but maybe different. ARCS have played a recent evening with Smackvan & by all accounts were simply superb. We want to build an evening where the ambience, the mood, the visual & the sound come together in a simple but quite different way from anything else in Aberdeen

This is a sssssshhhhhh event a STFU evening
