Starfields 2017: Reviewed

The St Andrews Fashion Show’s annual Starfields concert is rarely unsuccessful and despite the usual groans of weather and pricing, this year’s event can be added to a long list of FS’s successes. As usual, if alcohol and a group of young adults are congregated in a festival-style event, people will always have a good time–even if it’s in a tiny town in Scotland in the middle of September.

What to Wear: Blackout

GIG is bringing you, yet again, their highly anticipated Blackout event hosted at the Golf Hotel and Fat Sam’s. If you’re tired of the little black dress let us help you out with these stylish alternatives.

Studio 54: What to Wear

From the moment Bianca Jagger rode in on a white horse, notorious nightclub Studio 54 cemented its reputation of ‘70s decadence and debauchery. Whether the Oak Rooms and the Lizard will be able to reconstruct this specific kind of ambience remains to be seen, but find some groovy rags and turn on tune in and drop out to some psychedelic beats. Platforms encouraged for both sexes.

GIG: Blackout 2012. The Review

This highly anticipated event put on by the Global Investment Group gives St Andrews students a chance to get out of town and go to a real club . . . in Dundee.  It started with a sophisticated champagne reception in the Scores Hotel where, at about 9pm, floods of girls in sultry business chic and men in suits made their way in.  Everyone seemed to have found the Wall Street undone suitable as they creatively put their own spins on it – mostly with leather, jewels, and leopard.  The crowds mainly hung by the bars shaking their glasses and waiting not so patiently for more champagne.  Once the bottles had been emptied people made their way to the buses, limos, and to the main, cash only, bar. 

José González in St Andrews

No one ever really knows what to do at a music gig. Yes, we all know why we are there (to be within touching-distance of the mildly famous and maybe listen to some music) but what are we meant to do when we get there? If you are attending a Slipknot or Pendulum gig, you know what to expect: mosh pit, scary make-up, big-ass Doc Martins and a lot of sweat. But a José González gig is so relaxed, so chilled out that the atmosphere is a different kind, caught somewhere in between getting high on your living room sofa and relaxing in a hot bath with a glass of wine, neither of which can be performed in Venue One.
