The Bay , Glasgow
Playing a range of both original songs and cover versions, the 2 piece Glasgow band, World O’Mind , played a 30 minute set at a great wee acoustic venue in the centre of Glasgow.
Their new song “Radio Crash” was a popular hit, with great lyrics that proved to create an upbeat atmosphere from early on in the set. Cover versions included the Kings Of Leon hit “Use Someone” and the ever popular Katy Perry song, “Teenage Dream” which enabled many of the eager crowd to sing along and interact with the performance. With both members performing a solo song within the set, including “All The Kings Horses”, it didn’t really help with creating an overall understanding of the band as one however a great performance could be seen throughout their most recent song, “All The World To See”, which was my personal favorite, before the night ended with another original song, “Dream World”.
It was an overall good gig, more interaction with the crowd could have improved on the atmosphere at certain points within the performance although great lyrics could be heard within the variety of originals songs.
Would really like to hear more from them in the future.
The Classic Grand, Glasgow
Despite having their Barrowlands gig cancelled at the last minute, The Modests still managed to secure a 30 minute set as part of the Charity Sadowski Fest.
The four piece Glasgow band performed a series of original songs including 07505, which was explain to be titled after the lead singer, Jacksons phone number. P.S The World was also evidently the most popular song of the night, and despite poor sound quality during parts of the set, the band still managed to encourage the crowd throughout their performance. The Elvis cover of ‘Heartbreak Hotel” created a great atmosphere throughout the room and further original songs including “Call The Cops” and “In The Wings” were performed before the band thanked the crowd and left the stage.
A great improvement could be seen from their previous performance at George Square , which can be read here. And with a recent interview in The Evening Times and having secured a whole list of upcoming gigs, this band have clear high hopes and ambitions.

Waiting For Go
Performing only her second ever gig, Chloe Latimer took to the stage on Saturday night to an eager awaiting crowd.
The 15 year old singer songwriter from Clydebank performed a mix of both original songs, including “Home” and some cover versions such as the Bonnie Raitt hit “I Can’t Make You Love Me” and a great acoustic version of “Teenage Dirtbag” by Wheatus before ending the set with a unique Ed Sheeran medley, including hits such as “A Team”.
The atmosphere really hightened towards the end of the set, and despite her young age and lack of experience with live performances, Chloe appeared incredibly confident and really seemed to enjoy performing in front of an audience.
Saturdays gig made it evident that she has great potential, and after being chosen to support Nina Nesbitt at her gig in King Tuts in May, I’m sure we will be hearing a lot more from her very soon!
It was a good gig and she already has a a really great fanbase, go check out her music!
Oran Mor, Glasgow
Supporting The Imagineers
I hadn’t heard much from this 5 piece Glaswegian band but I was nothing short of impressed with their 30 minute set this week.
Full of energy and enthusiasm, the band performed many of their original songs including “Stay” and “On the Dancefloor” which many of the crowd, filled with their friends and family, already knew all the words to. This created a great atmosphere throughout the room and the crowd were buzzing.
Great guitar skills could be seen from 1 of 3 guitarists within the band Jack McDade and the very enthusiastic lead singer, Jordan Butler, even carried out an amateur crowd surf.
This band are clearly very passionate about their music and I really hope to hear more from them in the future.
