Optimo - The Juan Maclean(Live)

On Sunday 16th August at the Subclub in Glasgow, Optimo are delighted to be able to welcome one of DFA's finest - The Juan Maclean.

Juan Maclean is the robotic persona of New Hampshire resident John Maclean. His Juan MacLean sound initially came to attention due to its dark NY underground groove, equal parts chilling electro-disco and sci-fi paranoia. The bleeping analogue rhythms of early dancefloor hits like "by the time i get to venus" and "every little thing" have since provided MacLean with a confidence, profile and success that has allowed him to step out of his earlier "robotic" persona into a more optimistic and collaborative phase.

Recent album "the Future Will Come" finds Maclean working with NY punk-funk scene luminaries Nancy Wang (of LCD Soundsystem), Gerry Fuchs (formerly of !!!) and members of Holy Ghost.

This promises to be a very special evening, so please get down early to avoid disappointment as this night is expected to be very busy. Doors open at 10.30pm.
