WITH SO MANY different venues – from the elegant Barrowlands to the many bars throughout the city – here are five suggestions on where to see some quality gigs without hurting your wallet too much.
Located at the tail end of Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow’s main hub of clubs and bars, Box puts on live shows every day of the week for every week of the year; there is too much good music for them to take a single day off. And all of those shows are free.
A dedication to local and amateur musicians is the main policy. This is backed up not only by the daily gigs but also by the practice of lending out equipment such as amps or drum kits to anyone who needs them to play there. The accommodating atmosphere coupled with that enthusiasm for local talent makes Box ideal for newcomers to jump into Glasgow’s music scene.
