On Tuesday the 2nd of November, Canongate‘s Irregular will travel from Edinburgh to Glasgow’s Oran Mor, to celebrate the publication of A Life in Pictures, the autopictography of author and artist Alasdair Gray. Gray’s work adorns the ceiling and walls of the converted church, now an arts venue.
As well as readings by Gray himself, it will also feature award-winning poet Liz Lochhead and gothic literature from Louise Welsh. Idlewild frontman Roddy Woomble, Lord Cut-Glass (aka Alun Woodward of Chemikal Underground), and indie-folk four-piece My Latest Novel will provide the music, with a DJ set from artist David Shrigley. The evening will be compered by the performance poet Jenny Lindsay.
Doors open at 8pm for an 8.30pm start.
Tickets cost £6 and are available on Ticketweb.co.uk, or from behind the bar at the Oran Mor, Byres Road, Glasgow, G12 8QX.
