gig reviews

God is My Copilot / VIDIV / Comfort

Glasgow, The Old Hairdressers (Friday 9th March)

It’s Friday night at this fairly intimate venue (no stage, just a big room but very friendly and good soundmix)


Glasgow Hug and Pint (Saturday 27th January)

A Celtic Connections gig which wasn’t very Celtic or very connected to anything, but excellent nontheless.

The Baltic States / Millie

Glasgow Broadcast (Saturday 17 February 2018)

BM arrived too late to see Rebekah Kirk (sorry) but did see Millie’s set – think she played Flat 0/1 during Tenement Trail…

Franz Ferdinand / Albert Hammond Jr

Glasgow O2 Academy (Saturday February 17th)

There is, I assume some sort of etiquette, a pecking order, when gig supports and lineups are constructed.

Beth Orton / Blue Rose Code

Wednesday February 2nd (Celtic Connections @ 
Glasgow O2 ABC)

It’s been a few years since I last saw Blue Rose Code.

Max Richter / Catriona McKay

Glasgow Royal Concert Hall (Tuesday 23rd January)

Probably more commonly known for his film & television soundtrack work, Max Richter was here tonight performing his album ‘Three Worlds: Woolfe Works’

Frank Turner

Glasgow Old Fruitmarket (Tuesday 23rd January )

Frank Turner took the stage and announced immediately that he has a new album coming out

De Rosa

Glasgow Glad Cafe (Saturday January 20th)

De Rosa, straight outta Bellshill, are one of Scotland’s great unsung musical combos

This is the Kit / Lost Horizons

Celtic Connections @Glasgow O2 ABC (Friday 19th January)

Lost Horizons are a collaboration between former Cocteau Twin/Bella Union bigwig Simon Raymonde and Richie Thomas of Dif Juz, Jesus & Mary Chain etc.

Boohoohoo / The Little Kicks / Noah Noah / Oh Jay

Glasgow King Tut's Wah Wah Hut (Friday January 12th)

First gig of 2018 is one of the New Year Revolution events at KTWWH
