OUR daily briefing gives you the run-down on the most exciting cultural events going on in Scotland this evening, including smooth criminals, documentaries on conquering the elements and artistic performances.
MUSIC: ALIEN ANT FARM
If you were following the wider ‘nu-metal’ scene around the turn of the new millennium, then you’ll be very familiar with AAF. The band from California were catapulted into mainstream success following their reworking of the Michael Jackson classic ‘Smooth Criminal’ which was backed up by fan favourites such as ‘Movies’ and ‘These Days’. The nerdy rockers will be rolling back the years at Glasgow’s The Garage - performing their breakout album ANThology in its entirety.

A side of the mountaineering story often untold. Filmmaker Jennifer Preedom went to Mount Everest in 2014 in the hope of investigating a brawl which took place between Nepalese sherpas and European tourists the previous year. After a devastating avalanche, Sherpa developed into a complex tale of those who make their living from the mountains, the climbers they deal with and their attempts to reclaim the mountain after the worst disaster in Everest history. A compelling human story in the midst of the power of nature.
