- Bicep & Gerd Janson at XOYO April 25th
Cosmic muscle flexers Bicep headline Bugged Out at XOYO on Friday April 25th. Their last appearance at the club for us was in Feb 2012 and they’ve come a long way since then, curating Feel My Bicep festival stages and clocking up numerous acclaimed wee pumpers (as they call ‘em) like Vision of Love and Satisfy. Running Back headman Gerd Janson will be serving up house and disco just as he does at his residency at Robert Johnson, a DJs DJ and the perfect addition to a night with the muscle men alongside Trouble Vision’s Park Ranger. ReviveHER look after room 2 with their balloon-atic house.

It’s been five years since Audion’s HECATOMB, the hypnotic live A/V tour that changed the way we look at Matthew Dear’s dancefloor alter ego. But the wait is over: Audion is back with a career-spanning retrospective (Audion X), a new album in the works for 2014, and SUBVERTICUL, a brand new, breathtakingly immersive audiovisual experience.

- Andrew Weatherall b2b Daniel Avery at XOYO March 28th
THE LTD ADV TICKETS HAVE NOW SOLD OUT. THERE WILL BE PLENTY ON THE DOOR FROM 9PM. £15 B4 11PM.
Andrew Weatherall returns to Bugged Out for the umpteenth time. He first played for us in 1995 and remains one of our favourites DJs here in our 20th year. We can say the same for Justin Robertson who has also been along for the ride all this time and can give Weatherall a run for his money in the hirsute/sartorial stakes. Weatherall goes b2b with Mr Drone Logic Daniel Avery for 4 hours on the night. Joining them is a very special guest who we will announce late Feb! The latest Phantasy signing Ghost Culture and Lemmy Ashton complete the bill.
