A dark, damp night at the SSE Hydro in Glasgow was lit up by an astounding performance from Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds.
The set delivered everything you would want from a Halestorm show… hell, anything you could want from a rock show.
It was the perfect storm (pardon the pun) of a rock band fast approaching the top of the game, and the best gig venue IN THE UNIVERSE coming together – Halestorm and The Barrowlands in Glasgow.
Just some photos I took of Glasgow in 2014
It’s been a weird 12 months for my home town; started on somewhat of a low with the Clutha tragedy fallout, built up again with the Commonwealth Games and the run up to the Indy Referendum, and dipped back down again with the trouble after that, and the horror in George Square just in the past fortnight.
So the Commonwealth Games have been and gone, and as I rattle the keys on my overworked laptop, Clyde is on S1Jobs.com looking for his next gig.

Glasgow has been hosting the 20th incarnation of the Games since last Wednesday, when we blew into town with dancing Tunnocks Teacakes, John Barrowman kissing and wee Scottie dugs stealing the show.
Photos from The Temperance Movement gig in Glasgow, 25th April 2014
Thought I would add a couple of the pics I took from The Temperance Movement gig in Glasgow on Friday night. Enjoy!
The Temperance Movement are insanely good on record, and even better on stage. I probably wasn’t prepared for how good they are live though. They are incredible.
There’s not much to say that hasn’t been said by many, many people before. The Temperance Movement are insanely good on record, and even better on stage.
I take a trip to the O2 ABC in Glasgow to see Halestorm live.

Halestorm return to Glasgow, this time in the larger O2 ABC venue, a step up from their previous headline show at The Garage just along the road. The Garage was sold out, and so was The ABC – a damn good sign of their growing popularity.
This was a party. People were hugging, crying, dancing, jiving and in one hipster fuckwit examples, sitting down writing notes about the setlist on a reporter’s notepad while looking bemused as the world danced round him in a furious haze.
A dark and wet night at the tail end of January in 2014. I never expected to be going to see a Del Amitri gig in 2014… Continue reading “Del Amitri; live @ The Hydro”

So. This is being billed as the farewell to the UK tour, the last time that us UK folk will have to see the full Bowling For Soup experience. On that basis, I had to get a ticket and take it in.
