On Friday, 3 March the IFI cinema will screen ‘Lost In France’, an exhilarating new documentary which explores the rise of this Glaswegian music scene. Following the screening, Dolittle presents bring you a very special show with Chemikal Underground’s Emma Pollock (The Delgados) and RM Hubbert at The Workmans Club.
In Glasgow in the mid-1990s, flourishing indie rock band The Delgados established cult record label Chemikal Underground, heralding a renaissance of independent music in the city that would bring the likes of Mogwai, Arab Strap and Franz Ferdinand to the world.
Lost in France revisits a defining, chaotic trip to France in the musicians’ early careers. Featuring a stunning mix of live performances and frequently hilarious interviews, the film reunites key label personnel in an intimate exploration of friendship, memory and making music.
Hosted by the Glasgow Film Festival, Lost in France screened as a nationwide cinema event on 21 February followed by an exclusive performance broadcast live via satellite from the Glasgow O2 ABC, featuring a supergroup including Alex Kapranos (Franz Ferdinand), Stuart Braithwaite (Mogwai), RM Hubbert plus The Delgados’ Emma Pollock and Paul Savage.
The Workman’s Club are delighted to bring you what promises to be an incredibly special evening of music with Emma Pollock and RM Hubbert.
Doors will open at 9pm and tickets are priced at €12 / €10 if you bring along your cinema ticket from the screening.
