Night School Presents
Friday 10 August
Hailing from Alberta, Canada, Cadence Weapon – aka Rollie Pemberton – makes his Glasgow debut in support of his eponymous record. Since 2005’s Breaking Kayfabe, Cadence Weapon’s productions have sharpened and teased envelopes, brining in leftfield influences as well detouring recognised Hip Hop tropes. Featuring productions by KAYTRANADA, Jacques Greene, FrancisGotHeat, Blue Hawaii, Harrison and more, this record finds Cadence refining his songwriting as he explores themes of individuality, race, technology and existentialism through his expressive lyrics. Live, Cadence Weapon’s brings a fire that threatens the speakers’ integrity.
SEAN NICHOLAS SAVAGE
Arbutus Records’ Quixotic singer is a one-in-a-million performer. Not many singers can sail so close to the edge of consciousness, Savage constantly tests the boundaries of his thumping heart, singing songs that are shorn of pretence, instead full-to-bursting with the adventures of a soul who feels too much and wants to share. Above and beyond the songs’ unfettered abandon, Savage possesses one of the most instantly recognisable falsettos in the underground: a falsetto that can soar with a flying, soulful ecstasy before it swoops down in cracked emotion. You’re never quite the same after an SNS show.
