Gigging in Glasgow's G2

There were two local support bands booked, and when we got in, Porch Song Anthology were up on stage. They weren't bad, though I thought their songs got a bit samey after a while. The State Broadcasters were up next, and they were really really good -- and as an added bonus, I came away knowing what a clarsach is!

Now they say that every picture tells a story, and so I won't waste any words. Here's what the gig in Glasgow's G2 was like:

And then it was over. We said goodbye to Corn Mo and Matt, and hit Sauchiehall Street looking for a place to eat - we fancied some Chinese this time, but we soon learned that on that particular Saturday, because of the football (Scotland-France 1-0) all the restaurants had to close around the time we'd started to feel peckish. However, we were told that one grubby little takeaway near the end of the street might still be open for business, and so they were.

The rain came down in buckets, and soon we were fairly wet and bedraggled. When I'm cold, wet and bedraggled, and hungry, I want comfort food; but the Canton Express did not have Egg Foo Yong on the menu. While the others opted for Chicken Chow Mein, I muttered something about this obvious omission -- and the man said he'd do me my Foo Yong even if it wasn't on the menu! This perked me up no end.

We met up with Jay & Tori again after we'd eaten, for our final drinks of the night in The Local; then we went back to the hotel for a few hours sleep. Our taxi would come to take us to the airport at 6:35 the next morning.

Thank you so much, shiny pictures was just what I needed this morning: )

You took some lovely pictures, very lovely pictures indeed.

The nice man made you Foo Yong especially for you... The Glasgow gig was a brilliant happy and yet sad and yet happy evening!

You're very welcome, and thanks!

If I'm honest, I don't think I can pick a favourite from the three gigs we had the good fortune to witness; they were all brilliant, but Glasgow comes close. I just hate that we were hurried out again immediately after, it's strange that that only ever happens to us in Glasgow.

The set for Glasgow and seeing the guy's on a proper stage did it for me.
However *stares at Glasgow* they really are quite rude about getting people thrown out of places when I can't see any need at all, maybe Glasgow should be earlier on in the UK tour and then they could finish in a place that let people stop and chat, that would be nice... oh and if they could arrange to come over in the SUMMER when we could do festivals that would be even better!

Not that I am demarnding are anything *LOL*

I'd love it if the boys could come over during the summer -- Pimm's and lemonade and good music, what more could a girl ask for?

I've never actually been in G2, so it's nice to have a peek thanks to your pics. :) Chicken chow mein is my food of choice at the Canton Express, and it's surprisingly tasty considering how much of a dive the place looks!

Not surprisingly, since they did me the favour of cooking up something that wasn't on the menu, Canton Express is now my favourite Chinese in Glasgow!

They're nothing special, though I'm quite chuffed at the way the audience pictures have come out! ;-)

where's my comment?!! for shame!! Aww look see the photos ... I was going to say it looked like Nai and Jay are watching CoRo - all shiny squeesome .. and Kathy and I maybe aren't yet - but I think smiley mouth and sad eyes .. I could well be?! boohoo rain and boohoo silly taxi company and boohoohoo football!! - but definitely the best show this time and definitely the best Glasgow I've been to!! - next year - they could PACK that place.

That picture of you and Kathy was taken shortly before the band came offstage to perform the in audience/off-mic -- so I'd say you're smiling sadly because you know soon it'll all be over and we'll have to wait another year before we can do it all again.
