Preview: Guilt. Free. Partying. ‘Make Noise’ Glasgow

Love partying?

Hate the guilt?

This is the one for you.

Imagine for a minute you’re the Glaswegian Pinocchio. It’s a Thursday Night and you fancy going clubbing. So you have a few drinks with your mates, head to Subby, and it’s all well and good until you get to the door and you find that instead of the usual bouncers it’s Jiminy Cricket standing there. Then he asks you when was the last time was that you recycled your mobile phone? Lost for words, you just blurt out that you don’t have a phone and before you know it, your nose has gotten so big that you can’t fit through the door.

Don’t be that guy.
Bring your broken electrical goods and exchange them for a night of clubbing goodness.

When: Thurs 22nd Nov

Where: Sub Club

Door tax: FREE with any broken electrical item. NB in the eventuality that you can’t find anything GUM recommends going via Murano/checking the nearest skip. (This is not an excuse to dash your phone out the window/drunkenly drop it down the toilet and claim a new one on insurance.)

Line up: Benji B (Radio 1) DJ Martelo  (NTS) and Conquering Animal Sound (Live set)

Still wondering how this all works?

MAKE NOISE is a brand new initiative setup by European Recycling Platform (ERP) and Heavenly Music Services to encourage young people to make music and spread awareness of the importance of recycling broken or unwanted electronic goods.

ERP is one of the UK’s leading waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) and batteries recycling schemes. Producers of electronic goods and batteries work with registered recycling schemes, such as ERP, to collect and treat WEEE and batteries on their behalf. ERP members include Electrolux, Hewlett Packard, Microsoft, Procter & Gamble, Samsung and Sony.

Scott Butler, ERP UK’s managing director says:

“ERP is really excited to be coming to Glasgow. The line-up for the night is impressive and we hope people will take home the recycling message. And, by bringing along their old electronics for recycling, they will be supporting their local community music centre and helping to foster future talent.”

Disclaimer: If you’re planning on attending the GUM content meeting at 4pm that evening, then you may be subject to peer pressure to attend this event. Jus sayin.
