A night at the museum to showcase young bands

An opportunity to experience a museum in a whole new light – after dark – is being offered to city residents.

For the first time this November, the National Museum will be open late and host activities for adults.

Some of the best current Scottish music talents will be appearing. Confirmed acts include Found, billed as Scotland’s top experimental pop band, and S-Type, said to be one of the country’s finest young producer talents.

There will also be sets from synth-fused electronica Ben Butler and Mousepad.

Overseeing proceedings will be Ally McCrae, Radio 1’s newest Scottish DJ.

Punters can grab a beer and snacks with friends at the Grand Gallery bars or try one of the cocktails created specially for the night.

The event is part of a huge programme of activities designed to encourage visitors back to the museum, which reopened earlier this year after an extensive three-year redevelopment.

The concert, which has been sponsored by RBS, takes place on Friday, November 11 from 6.30pm to 10.30pm.
