Friday Frolics - 2nd March 2012

It's all about Words With Friends for the next few weeks as we have kicked off the Scottish Fiction Words With Friends Cup.  Scattered amongst the high scoring two letter words, and the triple word scores is some other news.  Here it is all wrapped up nicely for you.

(There's a lack of content from us this week.  I haven't been to any gigs recently to review, and I also left my USB stick down at the studio so haven't been able to put the Podcast up.  Sorry!)


The biggest festival north of the border announced their line up recently.  I'm less than impressed T In The Park.  Decide what you think here.

Rockness have also added some new names to their bill.  As I'm going to this one, I've paid it a bit more attention.  New names include, Admiral Fallow, The View, Friendly Fires, The Drums, The Rapture, Mylo, Kassidy, and Mystery Jets.  So-so...

The SAMA's took place at The Garage on Thursday night.  The winners were: Best Live Act - We Were Promised Jetpacks, Best Rock/Alternative - Fatherson, Best Electronic - Fridge Magnets, Best Newcomer - Bwani Junction, Best Metal - Ten Tonne Dozer, Best Hip Hop - Madhat McGore, Best Acoustic - Brown Bear & The Bandits

One of my favourite events Stag & Dagger announced the first acts to play this year.  Django Django, White Denim, The Phantom Band, Bear In Heaven, Death Grips, Willy Mason, Still Corners and Vitamin all set to play.

Brand new label Comets & Cartwheels has popped up recently with Endor, Quickbeam and Partwindpartwolf.

Glasgow City Council have announced that they will scrap their proposed fees for public events which are temporary or free of charge.  Huzzah!
