Dates and times

Friday 1 November 2019
9:00PM - 10:00PM

For one night only, Sonica takes over the Tobacco Warehouse in Greenock and transforms it with sound and visuals.

Greenock’s Tobacco Warehouse has a uniquely rich history. In its time, the five-storey brick building has been not only a storehouse for whiskey and tobacco, but was also a barracks for American GIs stationed in Scotland during World War Two. Cryptic – in collaboration with the Scottish Alternative Music Awards – is delighted to present an evening of innovative and thrilling audiovisual performances in this iconic venue.

Live music comes from Luke Sutherland’s post-rock pop outfit Rev Magnetic and multi-instrumentalist Callum Easter, with accompanying live projections from VAJ.Power. Also appearing are audiovisual artist Robbie Thomson, experimental musician SUE ZUKI and queer feminist provocateur Kleft. With light sculptures by Jack Wrigley plus local musicians. 

Supported by: The Hugh Fraser Foundation, RIG Arts & Riverside Inverclyde
