One of a kind nights can get overlooked – especially in St. Andrews. Lets hope iGod isn’t one of those. From everything that I’ve heard, it is gonna be a unique night in St. Andrews. All we can hope for is that they get the kind of support that events such as Calvin Harris had. Basically its an hour long play with a rave afterwards. Its not an ordinary play though – instead of chairs, there are pillows and the floor. Instead of collecting tickets at the door, a glass of champagne is given to every patron. I’d like to see this work out if for no other reason than if this works, there will be much more fun, interesting and enjoyable theater coming our way.

Below are photos from their new photoshoot. Its the strange mix of gothic and minimal that kind of catches my eye.

Good luck, iGod.

calvinFor those of you who were expecting a live show from Calvin, I’m betting you were all a little disappointed when you found out he wasn’t singing. While there was minimal advertising for the event (not evencept a huge A0 poster outside the union like there was for Sister Bliss last year), what adverts were up did say “DJ SET” on them, so don’t blame the organizers for not telling you, cause they did, you just weren’t looking hard enough.

Beyond that, he did a great job. He got the crowd going (playing some of his own stuff) and for the most part, threw down a really well thought out and put together set including one of our personal favorites, Duck Sauce. So, before you all go ranting about how it wasn’t worth going to see, consider this: no one has ever gotten so many people into really good dance music in this town before. Yes thats right, the music he played was good. There I said it! And for that, I salute Mr. Harris.

Some more ear candy for you all:

Calvin Who? by Elise

He seemed to have a great vibe about him. When he’d throw up his arms and jump around and stuff everyone would get all excited and clap and jump around too. He definitely had that star quality (and some weird requests… five black towels?). But he was just “playing tunes”, “not really DJing” as some people put it. Most people had a great time, but seemed a little bit disappointed in Calvin Harris himself. But what about the fact that he had literally JUST thrown a show in Dundee? Should we cut him some slack? Either way, the most interesting part of the night for me was the clothes you all were wearing. Naturally. 

Anybody not dressed in typical rave gear was interesting to us (unless you were the girl with the cool oversized neon hair clips). We were into heavy sequined pieces and cropped tops, as well as anything in embroidered netting or chiffon.

Okay so here’s the deal: There are only fifty (50) tickets to Calvin Harris left and RaveSoc has them. Yes, RaveSoc. There will NOT be tickets sold at the door. If you want one of these tickets go to The Vic at 9 tonight for the RaveSoc social (is it a rave or a social? RaveSocial?). If you become a member of RaveSoc at The Vic you can buy one of these tickets for only eight pounds. It’s first come, first serve, so if you want to be at the concert I’d be there at 9. RaveSoc will be playing legit music tonight and again tomorrow with a DJ set from GC (Ginger Chris). It’s your absolute last chance for tickets! Hurry, hurry.

It took less than a day for all of the online tickets for Calvin Harris in Venue 1 to sell out. The number one question I’ve been hearing around town is “is Calvin actually coming?” I guess that question has kind of been answered by the Union earlier today when they started selling tickets but for those of you who are still unsure, I can tell you with absolute confidence. CALVIN IS COMING. I’ll see you all there!

Its official, Calvin Harris is coming to St. Andrews. According to the facebook event (I know – reliable source, right?), he is playing early in dundee then gonna run over hear for a short set (probably from 12-1). No word on the price yet, but I’m gonna guess no less than £9 pre-sale then probably £12 or £13 at the door. That means buy your tickets early, kids!

And now for your listening pleasure:
