What's On?

There's something momentous about this post. I'm not quite sure what, but I reckon if I keep going with it, I'll remember. 'What's On' is basically my weekly gig guide for Glasgow and surrounding areas. I'll always try to provide as comprehensive a list as I can, but due to time/resources some things may slip past me. If you know of or are participating in an event which you think should be included, then let me know! What's on, you ask? Well, let me tell you, a bloody lot, and it makes me wish I wasn't skint.
