Music scene in Glasgow

Traveling to Glascow and want to check out the music scene, which I've heard is amazing. My friends and I love just about any kind of music and love little clubs, big venues, pubs with great entertainment, anything. We're open to spend some money.

    Glasgow does have loads of live music with all sorts of different venues and musical styles available alomst every day of the week. What I looked at most often was "The Gig Guide" that you can find in many pubs (especially on Ashton Lane) as this would list everything going on in town that week. You can see this resource online too at:

    http://www.gigguide.co.uk/listings.htm.

    Their web-programming skills aren't too impressive, but if you want to just see a pdf of their flyer, check out:

    As for the biggest venues, check out the O2 and the brand new SSE Hydro. The latter will see guests such as Nine Inch Nails, Katy Perry, and Robbie Williams play this year.

    While the The SSE Hydro is amazing, I'd recommend having a look at some of the other medium/small venues in Glasgow to get a real feel for it. Maybe try King Tut's Wah Wah Hut just for the name itself, if nothing else. The Arches Arts is also a great place to try out, even just for a club night - it's an amazing venue. As for pubs, you could try Bloc+ or Nice N Sleazy, both in the Glasgow city centre. Maybe try out The Buff Club, too?

    If you want to experience some traditional Scottish music and you are ready to mix with some true Scots then try the Islay Inn. or The Park Bar near Kelvingrove Park. There's lots of other great bars and restaurants along the road from there too, if it all gets a bit much!
