Not in any way an exhaustive gig list for Glasgow for next week, merely a list of highlights for me! (Even if I can’t get to them all)
Monday (& Tuesday) sees the return of Pixies to Glasgow, I missed the last Glasgow gig due to selling out quickly and the secondary ticket market – enough said for the moment – but looking forward to seeing them on Monday in the open air at Kelvingrove (amongst the many other great names playing over the course of 2 weeks). Hope the rain stays off!
Next weekend (as with virtually every weekend in Glasgow!) there are some great new and legendary gigs:
Friday 11th at the Old Hairdressers its Dead Hope supported by Curdle (Trippy riot pop). “Dead Hope are a three piece post punk band from Glasgow. They don’t do many gigs but they have an album coming out. It’s very good so they’re playing here to share it!” Please see sidebar for a brilliant Dead Hope song (Truth Be Told)
STOP PRESS: Dead Hope will have copies of their debut album for sale at the gig. Expect a review here sometime soon…
Saturday 12th – 2 legendary bands are playing in Glasgow! – Ex-Cathedra play one of their final EVER gigs in King Tut’s and Hugh Reed plays in McChuils for a rare (these days) Glasgow appearance – you choose which one to go to!
Sunday 13th – Another seminal band and arch-miserablists- Arab Strap follow in Pixies footsteps and play Kelvingrove Bandstand.
