Gigs to look out for this month

By Jeevan Farthing

Our Culture Editor brings you the highlights of Glasgow’s music scene

Glasgow’s music scene is second to none. Expect to shout here we fucking go multiple times as you immerse yourself in high octane hysteria and all round good vibes. Here are some of the gigs to look out for over the next month.

ANTHRAX | O2 ACADEMY | SEPTEMBER 30TH | FROM £37.30 Thrash metal excellence.

AOIFE SCOTT | THE GLAD CAFE | SEPTEMBER 22ND | £14.00 Traditional Irish folk artist; “All Along the Wild Atlantic Way” was named “Song of the Year” at the Irish Folk Music Awards in 2017.

CHRIS DE BURGH | GLASGOW ROYAL CONCERT HALL | SEPTEMBER 16TH | FROM £66.00 Slag this one off at your own risk; you may find yourself fighting a defamation case. De Burgh has a *reputation* to protect.

CLAIRO | O2 ACADEMY | OCTOBER 2ND | FROM £51.00 Truly a 21st Century phenomenon, starting out on the internet and best known for certified bop “Pretty Girl”

DR FEELGOOD | KING TUT’S WAH WAH HUT | SEPTEMBER 16TH | £19.80 Pub rock band from Canvey Island.

GEORGE EZRA | HYDRO | SEPTEMBER 26TH | FROM £77 On the ‘BBC Introducing’ stage only nine years ago, now George Ezra’s steady rock is coming to the 13,000 capacity Hydro.

MARILLION | GLASGOW ROYAL CONCERT HALL | SEPTEMBER 19TH | FROM £55.00 Universally (and probably intentionally) uncool neo-progressive rock in a quintessentially classical setting. Yer da would have been crucified if seen at one of their gigs in the 80s. Go show those scathing music journalists what they’re missing…

NE-YO | O2 ACADEMY | SEPTEMBER 27TH | FROM £46.25 Ne-Yo is unfortunately no longer competing on The Masked Singer, so won’t be strutting out on stage as a badger. This is bound to be a 2010-era Capital FM mid morning show throwback. Revisiting that prepubescent joy is in popular demand; low availability for this one!

SOCCER MOMMY | QUEEN MARGARET UNION | SEPTEMBER 24TH | £16.87 Catchy pop and indie-rock will fuse in Soccer Mommy’s music on campus slay.

STEVEN PAGE | KING TUT’S WAH-WAH | SEPTEMBER 17TH | £27.50 You’ll know him from ‘Barenaked Ladies’

SUNSET ROLLERCOASTER | QUEEN MARGARET UNION | SEPTEMBER 23RD | £19.25 Inspired by The Velvet Underground, this 5-piece jazz-influenced synth-pop band from Taiwan are coming to campus.

SWEDISH HOUSE MAFIA | HYDRO | SEPTEMBER 30TH | FROM £69.30 Hot off the release of their debut studio album, this group does what it says on the tin. Don’t you worry child, dance moves will be in abundance at this one.

THE HOUSE OF LOVE | ROOM 2 | SEPTEMBER 17TH | £27.50 Alternative rock band, influencing the Shoegaze groups of the 90s 

TRICOT | STEREO | SEPTEMBER 15TH | £14.00 Japanese alternative rock band, fascinating harmonisations.
