In what will be there last ever show in Glasgow, the boys will be tearing the roof off the ABC in Glasgow this Saturday night (29th). If you fancy sending one of Scotland's finest live bands off in style, then you can still pick up a ticket in advance via Synergy Concerts website. If you are planning on going along, make sure you get down nice and early as United Fruit have just announced that they will be the support for the evening. If you get the chance then you should check out the video for their current single 'Go Away Don't Leave Me Alone', it's rather good.

"As part of her "30 Before 30" list, Lisa from Last Years Girl blog is joining the list of bloggers who are putting on their own gigs, as she wants to"play too". On December the 2nd, she's booked up the Old Hairdresser's (across from Stereo) for a night of entertainment entitled 'Friday Night Speakeasy' featuring Franz Nicolay (of Hold Steady fame), Brighton-based political songwriter Chris T-T plus Glasgow's finest folk-punk singer-songwriter, Dave Hughes. Tickets for the gig are available now, although due to the size of the venue numbers are very limited so if you want to go you best be quick in snapping up a ticket.
