It’s semester 2 already, and we’ve got a pretty amazing line-up for you over three great venues this spring. Don’t miss early comedy events such as Russell Kane on Saturday 29 January or our weekly Tuesday night comedy at The Pleasance Cabaret Bar. If you’re looking for a night out with a difference, why not try Alan
Bates – Comedy Hypnotist
on Thursday 3 February, or be a bit daring and try Dr Sketchy’s AntiArt class on Thursday 24 February... budding artists have the chance to draw portraits of the burlesque dancers on stage. As usual The Venue at Potterrow has got a tip-top mix of club nights and big names, this season we’re really excited to see Roll Deep on Sunday 13 February as well as the return of Beat a Maxx, following his appearance at the Teviot House of Horrors Hallowe’en Party.
And of course no student calendar would be complete without the much loved Saturday night Potterrow fixture Big Cheese. Don’t forget about Teviot – there’s plenty going on here as well, we really know how to throw a fantastic ceilidh and what better excuse than Burns Night on Tues 25 January? And remember, if you’re feeling all Cheesed out, you can spend an alternative Saturday night with live bands at Teviot Underground. Look inside for full listings. We’re looking forward to seeing you in one of your eusalive venues very soon!

THEATRE Selladoor Theatre Company Presents
Spring Awakening Spring Awakening is a rock musical adaptation of the controversial 1891 German play of the same title by Frank Wedekind. Set in late 19th century Germany, it concerns teenagers who are discovering the inner and outer tumult of sexuality. It explores the confusion and desperation that ensue when the onrushing tide of hormones meets the ignorance of children raised by parents too embarrassed or prudish to discuss what those new urges signify. Two of the three lead characters are sacrificed on the altar of propriety: one tormented by shame over sexual fantasies and bad grades, the other, a girlfriend, the victim of a botched abortion...
