We’re excited to let you in on our music line-up for our Monkey Business Museum Late, curated by media partner, The List and hosted by Lates favourite Vic Galloway.
Our headliners for the night are Glasgow five-piece WHITE - a hurtling juggernaut of synth stabs, razor-sharp guitars and even sharper attire. A cacophony of pink noise, huge drums, infectious hooks and an explosive frontman channelling Jacques Brel & Nick Cave. They are turning heads with debut song "Living Fiction", the NME calling it "the kind of full-blown space wig-out Bowie would be proud of".
Support for the night takes the form a solo set from Carla Easton (Ette/Teen Canteen). With pure polished pop at their core, Easton's songs are melanchloic epics packed into 3 minute synth driven mini dramas. “It’s as if Easton has “Don’t bore us—get to the chorus” spelled out on a Lite Brite on her writing desk at home…Pure, unfiltered joy; in a year marked by dark, rolling clouds, Homemade Lemonade offered a rare, welcome rainbow”. Bandcamp on ‘Homemade Lemonade’ – Ette.
DJs from Fresh Air FM will be once again be bringing the beats to our Silent Disco and keeping you in the swing of things between main stage acts.
So gather your troops, and come join us for a night of fun, frivolity and some monkeying around. There’ll be lots to get your teeth into and tails around with creative crafting and unique sensory experiences, plus you can pick the brains of some primate keepers from the Royal Zoological Society Scotland and hear from our own expert curators in their natural habitat. Eureka Edinburgh will be coming along with some head scratching fun and games (and there might even be a prize for the top banana). Keep your eyes peeled here for more programme news!
All ticketholders will be given the territory of night-time galleries to explore, and those who purchase a combo ticket can also visit the fantastic Monkey Business exhibition on the night.
A range of refreshments including wine, beer and cocktails along with soft drinks and food-on-the-go will be available from our bars in the Grand Gallery and Hawthornden Court. Or take a seat in the Museum Brasserie, open from 17:30 on the night for delectable dining. Call 0131 247 4040 in advance to be sure of a table.
