Thank you very much if you came along to Pin Ups Geek Night last month, which turned out to be the most successful Pin Ups event ever! Who would have thought Glasgow had so many geeks? Over 460 geeks rampaged through the Flying Duck to experience all our geeky treats and a stupendous Guest DJ set from Angelos Epithemiou. Truly legendary scenes and the snaps are well worth a look (check out the picture of the really complimentary Evening Times review, thank you Marc Watson, we owe you a pint): http://www.pinup-nights.co...uk/gallery/thumbnails.php..?album=61 .
Geek Night will be a hard act to follow, but we’re up for it and we hope you’re up for it too. Because this month, for one night only, Pin Up Nights will become Pin Up Frights! Boo!
We happily acknowledge that Pin Up Frights is a “dreadful pun from one of Glasgow’s finest club nights” (The Scotsman) – but it’s also a full-on Halloween experience! There’s going to be a special spooky soundtrack, loads of decorations (including The Tunnel Of Terror), Halloween games, discounted entry if you’re dressed up, goody bags for the first 50 to arrive in fancy dress, prizes for the best costumes, a face painter, and free adult incontinence pads if things get just too exciting/terrifying! And if all that wasn’t enough, we will also be welcoming incredible special Guest DJs from beyond the grave – both Michael Jackson and Freddy Mercury shall be in attendance to share their record collections and meet their adoring public one last time!
Playing Dead at Pin Up Frights are long-term pals of Pin Ups Popup (http://www.myspace.com/pop..uptheband ) and Endor (http://www.myspace.com/end..or ), as well as smashing new band the Social Services (http://www.myspace.com/the..socialservices ). Popup and Endor are both simply really great guitar bands with great songs, and first shared a Pin Ups stage at our 3rd birthday party back in 2006, a night notable not just for exceptional musical quality but also the phenomenal amount of rum that was tanned behind the Pin Ups DJ decks, out of sight of the vigilant Woodside Social Club staff. The pictures are here: http://www.pinup-nights.co...uk/gallery/thumbnails.php..?album=10 (It’s a bit like a time machine, albeit a slightly shoddy one which only takes you back about 4 and a half years.)
Now that you know what you’re doing for Halloween you can get cracking on your outfit! There were some spectacular outfits at last year’s inaugural Pin Up Frights (including 3 ladies dressed as Twister boards, a horde of zombies, a very convincing Edward Scissorhands, and not one, but two Sonic the Hedgehogs) so we’re hoping for even more fantastic outfits this time. Remember, dressing up is worth a quid off entry and also potentially a special prize. Alternatively, you can claim your quid off of the entry price by buying a ticket in advance right now from Tickets Scotland ( http://tiny.cc/vu6n5 ) – or our online shop at http://www.pinup-nights.co.uk/ !
