Long ago, Glasgow suffered from a bleak reputation ripe with liquor, drugs, and general abandonment, as a seemingly bastard child from England.

Nearly every bar features live music and some even hold weekly open-mic nights. In fact, in Glasgow, it’d be difficult to find a place that does not showcase at least a few gigs per week.
If you’re looking to find the spots that launched indie bands like Franz Ferdinand, Frightened Rabbit, and Chvrches into indie stardom, here’s a little list of the spots to visit.

Only this time, the idea is not to make a surprise appearance - the goal is to put the King back on tour.
