gig reviews

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



King Krule

Glasgow SWG3 (Friday December 15th)

The first thing you noticed was the voice. Through concrete corridors came an unmistakable, arresting timbre.



The Divine Comedy

Edinburgh Usher Hall (Wednesday November 22nd)

Decisions, decisions. When you’re an upcoming songwriter, faced with a ‘foreign’ crowd, you want to make a good impression.
