The Southside Fringe’s programme of events is now available, and there is so much going on!
One of the best things about Glasgow is it’s live music scene - we’ve gone through all of our live music events and picked out some highlights for you.
If you are looking for the best local talent as well as the Southside’s sense of community, then maybe you’re looking for an open mic. Luckily, there are plenty to go to!
Open mics get going on Sunday 12th May with one at the Church on the Hill with Angus Rubber. This starts at 6:30, so you could head straight to the next Open Mic at the Clockwork Beer Co. at 9pm on the same night! If you need something to break up your week, there are weekly acoustic jam sessions on at Sweeney’s on the Park every Monday from 9pm as well as weekly Open Mic Nights at the Granary every Thursday.
There are tonnes more live performances (which don't involve you taking the mic!) This includes the Southside Sessions, featuring live music for 4 new acts every Thursday at Sweeney’s on the Park. Also at Sweeney’s check out Cahoots, featuring hits from the 50's, 60's and 70’s, Folk, Blues, Country and more, every Saturday afternoon. This leads smoothly into The Keelies on Saturday nights, bringing you the best Irish and Scottish Folk, pop, and rock!
Also at Sweeney’s, why not check out Carl Espirit Bridgeman & Friends! Carl is a well known multi instrumentalist from Glasgow, with a reputation for hosting some of the best jam sessions this city has ever seen! This is on Friday 10th May, so this would be a great start to your Fringe experience. Alternatively, why not try An Evening of Musical Theatre at the Cellar Southside? It's 8-10pm on Friday 10th May, and for only £5 a ticket, it’s certainly worth a go.
