list.co.uk/music Museum Lates
The newly reopened National Museum of Scotland is launching a programme of doors-stay-open-in-the-evening events called RBS Museum Lates. To kick off the series, The List was asked to curate the line-up, so we’ve asked along experimental art-poppers, FOUND; Glasgow-based hip hop producer, S-Type; and multi-coloured beat magpies, Ben Butler & Mousepad to perform in the Grand Gallery. There’ll be pop-up bars, food . . . and perhaps best of all, because it’s in the evening, less kids to compete with for a shot on some of the museum’s interactive displays. ■ National Museum of Scotland, Edinburgh, Fri 11 Nov.
