If there’s one thing we Pretty Ugly ladies know how to do, it’s throw a party – we’ve even recreated a wedding reception which resulted in a real live proposal from one of our regulars! Our themed nights have ranged from Great Gatsby to Mad Men, Eurovision to Studio 54, Rawk to Hip Hop.
Guest DJs have included Emmy-Kate & Marie (Kenickie), Prides, Ally McCrae (Radio 1), The Long Blondes, Manda Rin (Bis), Ari Up (The Slits), Aidan Moffat (Arab Strap), We Were Promised Jetpacks and Robert Florence (Burnistoun). We also invite DJ’s from our favourite club nights and musicians from the hottest local bands to join us on the decks from time to time.
Plus plenty of those bands have looked good on our dancefloor – Belle & Sebastian, We Are Scientists, The Twilight Sad, Chvrches, Twin Atlantic, Desaparecidos, Idlewild, Biffy Clyro, Mogwai, The Raveonettes, The LaFontaines, Fatherson plus many other up and comers from the Glasgow music scene have all been spotted throwing some shapes at Pretty Ugly over the years.
The Pretty Ugly DJs have also graced the decks at the likes of T in the Park, Scottish BAFTAs, The Vintage Festival and The Scottish Music Awards, and supported Blondie, Chvrches, Ladyhawke & Crystal Castles.
