(£25 ticket includes full programme of lectures in the afternoon)

Cult television programmes and films of the 1960s and 70s are inspiring a new generation of poets, writers, artists and musicians with their atmospheric themes of contemporary individuals interacting with a uniquely British world of ancient mythology and magic, often uncanny and unsettling.

This special events will feature talks, film screenings and performances to explore themes of cultural rituals, earth mysteries, psychogeography and folklore.

Named after an uncanny host of supernatural beings in Scottish folklore,The Unseelie Court comprises of two events- a day event largely focussed on talks and a night event focussed on music. A separate ticket will be required for each event, with a discount for those attending both.

The Old Hairdressers, Glasgow 8/02/2014

The Psychogeographical Commission
Renowned for their merging of mythology, music and film, The Psychogeographical Commission delve into the Jack the Ripper legend.

(a is to b) is equal parts Crystal Castles' domineering sonic assault and The Haxan Cloak's crepuscular, gloomy atmospherics. At once lo-fi and viscerally immediate, they exist in the perceptual bleed between transgressive performance art, punishing electronic noise and somnolent, dark ambient void-space.
