Ok, Glasgow! We'll actually be able to afford to come out and do things next month!
Toot toot.

Cool. Where are you staying? We're putting on an as yet unannounced gig on Nov 29th but can't think of much else coming up at the moment.
I think the only things I have in my calendar are watching the Pulp film and We Are The Best at The Glad Cafe.

You're right round the corner. All the cool indiepop kids live Southside!

Planning a day out next month and stopping over on a Friday night. We've got dead cheap train tickets but haven't booked anywhere to stay yet. I've only been once before and stayed in the Euro Hostel which was fine but we're after somewhere a wee bit nicer this time. Thinking West End / Kelvingrove Park type area but ready to be put right by anyone else's recommendations. As long as we make it to here and here we'll be a happy couple. Thanks!
This might be too late. My friend stopped here and liked it:

Ooh, that looks pretty smart. Thanks for the reply. We ended up in this place: http://www.grasshoppersglasgow.com/ right by Central station. It was pretty fancy by our standards - the highlight being freshly baked fairy cakes free to take lying around under little glass domes along the corridors.

We had a lovely time buying records and yarn, eating nice food, riding the subway and generally just wandering around noseying in through people's windows as we walked past. (Is it just us who likes doing that?!)

Would love to but I think the past weekend has finished me off for a while. At least I've only just seen FROTH and Chrissy.

Thanks for the amazing preview for the weekender by the way!

No worries! Shame we couldn't make it in the end, but i'll be over for other things soon enough.

How did it go? Facebook reports seemed pretty good

We're putting on Haiku Salut on 2nd May and you should come because they're one of the best live bands in the world.

So, yes, we have Haiku Salut playing next Saturday with The Colour of Whisky and Giorgos of The Occasional Flickers - https://www.facebook.com/events/388815654658206/

We're also treating you to The Just Joans + The Thyme Machine + How To Swim only 6 days later! - https://www.facebook.com/events/1564031333884219/

Loads more planned at the moment too.
