Highland Club Culture


2014 - 2017

Thuture was a club night run by Mark Mackenzie and Alottarhythmman from 2014 - 2017. It was originally pushed as Thuture Thursdays, as it would take place every Thursday in Madhatters in order to avoid clashing with club nights at the weekend in Karma Lounge. When Karma Lounge shut down in 2014, Thuture became the only regular occurring club night in the city. In order to fill the gap, Mark and Cisco ran secret location ‘pop-up’ nights out of unused or irregular spaces across the city centre, such as upstairs in ‘The Eagle’ (now Tooth & Claw), Pockets (now SoBar) and a shutdown restaurant above the Gellions (now ‘Upstairs’).

Some notable nights and bookings over the years were Denis Sulta, Barrientos, The Revenge, Marquis Hawkes, Big Miz and Adesse Versions.

Mark Mackenzie and Alottarhythmman remained residents for the night until concentrating their efforts into organising ‘OutDores’ in collaboration with Ally Ridgers.
