The Hot Ticket: Some of the best cultural happenings this September

3 Mins

With the festival firmly behind us, it’s time to look forward to the cultural happenings coming this month.


19 & 20 September
Inspired by the death of his old collaborator David Bowie, James Murphy has brought his era-defining dance-rock band out of retirement for new album American Dream and a string of live dates, including these at one of his favourite venues, Barrowlands, Glasgow.


22 & 23 September
Presented in one of the most striking Scottish locations, this event features an incredibly diverse line-up. While there’s a folk-heavy live element on Saturday, the focus is on clubbing, with artists and DJs including Mano Le Tough, Apparat, Joy Orbison and Optimo (Espacio) involved.


23 September - 26 November
A famed and internationally noted Canadian artist who has spent time living in the
northeast of England, Kelly Richardson is a filmmaker who uses CGI technology to make complex science fictions tableaus out of real-world images. This exhibition is part of DCA’s Discovery Film Festival at Dundee Contemporary Arts.

One of Scotland’s best small festivals is calling it a day this year, but there’s still time for one last party in the company of The View (celebrating 10 years of their album Hats Off to the Buskers), Glasvegas, The Pigeon Detectives and more, including spoken word sections featuring people like Ian Rankin.
