This Week In Gigs

Posted on May 22, 2011

Welcome to this week’s gig listings! Get over your hangovers early this week as there’s loads on from Monday onwards.

It’s also another bank holiday weekend, with loads to do on Sunday, including mini festivals in Edinburgh and Montrose.

Rather than just covering the central belt, and rather than just appearing on this blog, the listings will now be covering the whole of Scotland and featuring on the Favourite Son and Glasgow Podcart websites.

This means MUCH bigger coverage of gigs, but we need you to let us know about them.

We want to help the Scottish gig-going public know what is on, and promote all the great bands out there, and that doesn’t mean just Scottish bands – if you are playing in Scotland then we are interested.

We will source as many events as we can, but if you have an event/gig/night that you think we should know about then please get in touch at:

gigs@glasgowpodcart.com

links to band websites and facebook event pages will be massively helpful
