Cheap gig of the month: Girl Gaze at Platform

On Saturday the 12th of November, Glasgow feminist collective TYCI and the multifaceted arts venue Platform will come together to present an all-day festival which you can go to for just £5 with your student card. For a fiver, you not only get to hear the sounds of riot grrrrl extraordinaries Bratakus, self described “singer of poem-songs” Heir of The Cursed and the eclectic synth beats of Law Holt, but you’ll get to see spoken word and film. The festival itself has been curated by teenage girls and features all female performers, although it is welcome to all. The venue itself is located in Easterhouse, and is a 15 minute walk from Easterhouse train station. Taken from the event page, it states that “GIRL GAZE will also act as a jumping off point for a new initiative inviting teenage girls to take over TYCI’s activity and produce their own zine, podcast and live event through a series of workshops that will explore music, performance, feminism and more!”

If you’re lucky enough to still be in your teenage years and you’re interested in getting involved, you can email: matt@platform-online.co.uk.
