GLASVEGAS - Live In Sunderland
Scottish heroes Glasvegas hit Sunderland's Independent for one of intimate headliner.
For the uninitiated Glasvegas are James Allan (vocals), Rab Allan (lead guitar), Paul Donoghue (bass guitar) and Jonna Löfgren (drums). However one could argue they should need no introduction. One of the most successful Scottish musical exports in recent times, known globally for their unique sound and powerful lyrical content, they are a band that have never compromised; never conformed; commanding respect from their peers and critics alike and enjoy a fiercely loyal worldwide fan base. Glasvegas are a band who on their own terms are forging an undeniable legacy in terms of how many up-and-coming Scottish bands and even some established ones (who shall remain nameless) have been influenced by Glasvegas…especially Allan’s emotive Glaswegian vocal delivery.
Support from The Strands: The Strands are a four-piece indie-rock outfit hailing from the working class corners of the North East. Emerging onto the Newcastle music scene with their brazen single, ‘Made of Art’ , The Strands caught immediate intrigue of top grassroots venue promoters and regional/national radio, securing an interview/session on talkRADIO and airplay on BBC Introducing whilst also securing support slot shows with Larkins and BLOXX and appearing on the lineup for This is Tomorrow Festival.
