Blochestra is officially our very own, one-of-a-kind, ever-evolving orchestra of the people.
Unlike anything else (we’re aware of), we invite you, the musically-proficient public, to bring along whatever instrument you please and we’ll make damn sure it gets integrated into the ensemble, constructing gorgeous, idiosyncratic cover versions of popular classics, from David Bowie to Arcade Fire, under careful supervision of course.
With regular slots at many of the summer’s best festivals, Blochestra is far from just a muck-about. Periodic sold-out shows across Glasgow are testament to that.
Come see what the fuss is about…
Bloc+Jam Open Mic
For the last few years Bloc+ has been running one of Glasgow’s most popular and consistently high quality open mic nights, thanks largely to Louis Abbott, Jamie Stuart, Findlay Napier not to mention our incredibly gifted and facially pleasing clientele.
The gear is all ready to go so, if you’re fed up spending Sunday nights apprehensively contemplating the next five days of early morning traffic, water-cooler small-talk, dole-office appointments or car theft, pop along and enjoy Bloc’s warm atmosphere and cold beverages. Or is it cold atmosphere and warm beverages…?
We now welcome Innis & Gunn as our sponsors! Furthermore, all performers get a free beverage in exchange for a performance!
Deathkill4000 is hosted by DJ is Dirty Marcon and hits Bloc+ the first Saturday of every month. With an abundance of experience and a combination of styles (mixing Shellac with Ice Cube and Black Sabbath into Kavinsky) this night is at times simply inspired. His periodic live acts tend to be truly innovative too.
