Soundhaus 10th Birthday

Posted: April 9th, 2008, by Stan Tontas

The Soundhaus is celebrating it’s 10th birthday this weekend with DJs from (it looks like) all of the nights it hosts and a load of bands playing as well.

Why should you care? Read on…

I hate most nightclubs. The beer stinks, the price is excessive and in some venues the crowd cares more about posing than dancing (I’m looking at you, Optimo).

But the Soundhaus is different. There’s plenty of unpromising things about it. It’s just a warehouse, miles out of the way of pubs, crowds or anything in the shadow of the motorway. One time I took the shortcut across the Clydeside Expressway, twisted my ankle and limped around the whole night but still had a good time.

You have to really want to go there and I that’s its strength. The crowd that it gets in there are there for a reason and it’s to have a good time, making the Soundhaus the most unpretentious, wanker-free nightclub in Glasgow.

The Saturday night has DJs from Monox, Inner City Acid, Chakra, Pussypower and more, the night runs from 10:30-4:30 and costs just £6/£8. (Although a little birdie told me that those arriving at 10 get free entry and free beer…)

That’s enough promo. I feel dirty (but they didn’t pay me for this and it’s all true as far as I know…)
