Under Canvas is no longer underrated: tonight’s event at Mitchell’s

The Dark Horse of This Year’s Committees makes a return

Claudia Brown

Formerly the dark horse of St Andrews’ committees, Under Canvas sought to reenter the events scene with a bang and remind people of all the fun that comes with #gettingunder. The Friday of Halloween weekend saw Mitchell’s take on an unfamiliar hue as Reckless Kettle (who, rumour has it, will be storming St Andrews again very soon) took over.

First off: the venue. Mitchell’s, often overlooked as the place to go when Forgans is full, was the ideal location for this spooky groove.

“Why is this not done more often?” I hear you cry. Although perhaps what was so attractive about the event was that it was unprecedented in style. There was a definite air of halloween mystery as the night progressed, partially due to the creative set and aesthetics. Red lights created dark shadows whilst candles offered a little light to illuminate the pumpkin bunting and Under Canvas posters.

For £3 Under Canvas put together a really chilled night with Mitchell’s comfy seating lining the walls. But, for those who were hunting for something a little less carbon copied than ‘Cheerleader’ or Fetty Wap, the music was a magnet to the dance floor.

As the event reached capacity hair began to whip, hips and feet assumed a state of constant movement, and the mass of outstandingly dressed students began to loose track of location, time and surroundings as they got lost in Reckless Kettle’s set. The combination of techno, played on the authentic vinyl based decks, with hints of alternative house throughout made for a set that was genuinely interesting to listen to.

Now… word on the street, I believe, is that Under Canvas have another event this Tuesday evening which is set to be even better than their Halloween event. If you’re fed up with music that is solely popular because of its incessant presence at the Vic, then this really is the event for you.

  1. I’m extremely inspired along with your writing abilities as smartly as with the
    structure in your blog. Is this a paid subject matter or did you
    customize it yourself? Anyway keep up the nice quality writing,

    blog posts in this sort of space . Exploring in Yahoo I eventually stumbled upon this site.

    Reading this info So i’m satisfied to exhibit that
    I have an incredibly good uncanny feeling I came upon just what I needed.

  19. What’s Going down i am new to this, I stumbled upon this I have discovered It absolutely helpful and it has aided me out loads.
    I’m hoping to give a contribution & assist other
    users like its helped me. Good job.

  20. I’m amazed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me
    tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. The issue is something that too few folks are speaking intelligently about.
    I am very happy that I found this during my search for something relating to this.

  21. I think what you published made a lot of sense. However, what about this?
    what if you added a little content? I mean, I don’t want to tell you how to run your
    blog, but what if you added a title to possibly grab a person’s attention? I mean Under Canvas
    is no longer underrated: tonight's event at Mitchell's is a little boring.
    You should glance at Yahoo’s home page and see how they create post
    titles to grab people interested. You might add a video or a pic or
    two to grab people excited about what you’ve got to say.
    In my opinion, it would make your website a
    little bit more interesting.

    I’ll just sum it up what I had written and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.

    everything. Do you have any suggestions for inexperienced blog writers?
    I’d definitely appreciate it.

    a little bit, but instead of that, this is magnificent blog.
    A fantastic read. I will certainly be back.

  27. I’m truly enjoying the design and layout of your website.

    could definitely be one of the most beneficial in its field.

    100% positive. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.
