The Eclectica Experiment comes to Edinburgh

Feature by The Skinny | 21 Mar 2017

Fancy an evening that's just that little bit different? Look no further than The Eclectica Experiment. Taking place at The Caves in Edinburgh on 20 April, it's a melting pot of live performances by innovative local acts curated by The Skinny, matched with whisky cocktails created by some of Edinburgh’s best bartenders.

Hosted by unconventional whisky Black Bottle, the Eclectica Experiment is all about stepping out of your comfort zone and discovering new experiences, and our line-up features exciting artists from across music, spoken word, dance and comedy. We've lined up Iklan – the brand-new collaboration between experimental dark-pop queen Law Holt, the Leith Congregational Choir and Timothy London (co-producer of Young Fathers' debut) – plus the epic lo-fi of Neil Pennycook and Meursault, alt-folk songwriter Faith Eliott and the loud, dark, synth-fuelled electro of Future Get Down.

There's also contemporary dance from Ashanti Harris, spoken word from the former and current Scottish Slam Champions – Iona Lee and poet/comedian Daniel Piper – plus a screening of Scottish Ballet short film Maze, and the whole evening is compered by Flint & Pitch's own Jenny Lindsay. On the refreshment side of proceedings, mixologists from the likes of Voyage of Buck, Bramble and Timberyard – one of your favourite venues in our 2017 Food & Drink Survey – will be putting together unique cocktails inspired by the evening's events and by Black Bottle whisky. 

Tickets are on sale now for £10, which includes 5 whisky cocktails, food, and the evening's entertainment.
