Kvelertak – Stereo, Glasgow

[Full set of pictures on Flickr via this link] First time at a new venue is always good, especially when it's a nice dingy underground grotto like Stereo in Glasgow.

Turbonegro – King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut, Glasgow

This is the third time I've seen … Continue reading Bowling For Soup / People on Vacation – Glasgow Oran Mor
