One about the nice things of the 21st century is that pop music isn’t a dirty word anymore. Pop is cool and when Oh Wonder played SWG3 in Glasgow recently we were there to see one of the coolest pop bands around in action.
Following on from the release of their debut album Don't Wait 'Til Tomorrow, Yonaka headed out on tour earlier this month for a series energetic and chaotic live shows. Check out what went down at the Glasgow show in our photo gallery and review here.
Growing old gracefully is something few bands manage. Opeth have managed it better than most, this second prog focused stage of the band’s career has split fans. Some hate it, some love it, some...like bits of both. Having released their thirteenth studio album In Cauda Venenum back in September, we were expecting a trip down memory lane through their extensive back catalogue and their Glasgow show did not disappoint on this front.
20 years into their career, Killswitch Engage are on a form that most bands would kill to be in at their prime. When they took to the Barrowland Ballroom in Glasgow recently we were there to witness them live in support of their latest album Atonement, find out everything which went down and check out our photo gallery here.
Following on from the release of their latest album Beautiful Oblivion via Rise Records, Issues headed out on tour across the UK and Europe earlier this month in support of the release. Read what we thought of their Glasgow show and check out our photos from the set here.
It's been ten years since Washington D.C trio Animals As Leaders released their self-titled debut album and to celebrate it this they've headed out on a 10 year anniversary tour. With support coming from Cryptodira and Rolo Tomassi we knew we couldn't miss out on this line-up and headed to The Garage show in Glasgow.
Jamie Lenman took his Road To Lenmania to Saint Luke's in Glasgow for an evening of live music which saw him performing two special live sets. One of these an acoustic set pre-supports and then a full-on triumphant headlining set to round off an incredibly special night.
The Barrowlands is a legendary venue. Easily Glasgow’s best, and though it’s criminally underused these days, when a band books there it tends to be a sign of “we know we’re on top form and we need a venue that can handle that.” What tonight proves is that there’s an exception to every rule.
Booking the cavernous O2 Academy in Glasgow is a bold move for Fatherson. The band have long had a dedicated cult size following, packing out smaller venues all around the country, but this is a seriously big room. It’s a real statement of intent for this band, a sign they want to be on those bigger stages, and if this show is anything to go by they’re liable to get there.
