For one night only, Sonica takes over the Tobacco Warehouse in Greenock and transforms it with sound and visuals.

Greenock’s Tobacco Warehouse has a uniquely rich history. In its time, the five-storey brick building has been not only a storehouse for whiskey and tobacco, but was also a barracks for American GIs stationed in Scotland during World War Two.

Cryptic – in collaboration with the Scottish Alternative Music Awards – is delighted to present an evening of innovative and thrilling audiovisual performances in this iconic venue. Live music comes from Luke Sutherland’s post-rock pop outfit Rev Magnetic and multi-instrumentalist Callum Easter, with accompanying live projections from VAJ.Power.

Also appearing are audiovisual artist Robbie Thomson, experimental musician SUE ZUKI and queer feminist provocateur Kleft in collaboration with Shona Spalding & Dan Aitken. With light sculptures by Jack Wrigley plus local musician, Lisa Kowalski.
