Glasvegas at The Plug
Last night we went to see Glasvegas at The Plug in Sheffield. They're a band from Glasgow and have become very special to us. This was a romantic gesture from himself to me and the gig meant a lot to us. Strange band to be romantic to but hey, we wouldn't be any other way.
Apologies for the plentiful swearing, it may not be everyones cup of tea but I love them, they're raw and I'm from Glasgow and an ex punk, I can cope with a bit swearing.
I won't wax lyrical
a because I can't and
b because himself wants to write about it when he remembers his blogger password.
So I'll give you the non music bits and less considered prose.
I had to translate quite a bit,eg a square go means a challenge to a fight, himself hasn't been blessed and isn't Scottish like me, so some of our more quaint sayings bemuse him. I did think that most of the audience had no clue what the band were trying to say.
He took me to see the Fuck the English, Scotland the Brave graffiti that was a kind of make up gesture after a little disagreement.
I lost 1 of my best earrings (Gucci, white gold, I know I'm sad about that too, no I don't know why I wore them either)
From the fountains to the carpark, I had a blast and there is no one else I'd have wanted to see them with.
So please click on the logo Glasvegas and read the proper review.
