Did anyone note Cry Parrot and Tracer Trails promising big, big news coming up? Well it’s now here and if you’ve not heard anything of this yet you’ll maybe wet yourself. Basically it’s a rather amazing looking two-day festival up at Studio Warehouse in mid September, get right on get the days off! It’s called Music is the Music Language and the acts already confirmed for the festival (there’s more to come) are: Tattie Toes, Ben Butler & Mousepad, Vom, Vars of Litchi, Wounded Knee, Alasdair Roberts, Nackt Insecten, Cut Hands, Gummy Stumps, Opaque, Ultimate Thrush, Blue Sabbath Black Fiji, Muscles of Joy, Sarah Kenchington.
That not enough excitement for you, there’s going be a bunch of off site performances throughout the day all still to be revealed, as well as films, stalls and great food (here’s hoping burritos, check Glasgow Mega Burrito now, buy a t-shirt). The dates are September 10-11, 12 noon to 11pm, early bird tickets are a bargain £8. For more details on the event have a look click here.
Speaking of off site performances Winning Sperm Party are putting on the second Generator gig, this one’s in an abandoned building just off Clydewalkway near The Tall Ship and includes sets from Mr Peppermint and Ye Olde Bong Monster. There’s no fee but a £2 donation is asked, please do give it for their expenses and work, times are 7:30-8:30 strictly as this show is outdoors and not in an ‘owned’ venue so get down sharpish. Ignore the date on the poster, this one’s been moved to Thursday. More details here.
