Diskant is ten!

Glasgow based music and pop culture website Diskant is celebrating its tenth anniversary with a fabulous all singing, all dancing party at the CCA. Live music comes from much fancied bliss-popstrels Findo Gask and existential electronic punks Sunnyvale Noise Sub-Element, while I'll be manning the decks for one of my mildly shambolic, but hopefully funky and righteous, DJ sets. And what's more, there's an indie tombola, where you can get the chance to win some top prizes. See you there!
