And there's also the Jamie Liddell gig at the Art School afterwards. It'll be a good night ...

Splendid plan, looking forward to it.

Aren't Black Mountain playing that night too? We might have to gulp that dinner...

And I wonder if there are many more Glasgow MeFites post membership opening? play ethic doesn't seem to play here anymore, and he was the only other Glaswegian I was aware of...

I could come through from Edinburgh, although there's no way I could arrive before about 7... Despite my Canadian roots I'm not a big fan of Black Mountain (or of Jamie Lidell) -- what time are the gigs?

not sure on the gigs, but we're planning on meeting for food about 7pm. I should have mentioned that earlier, ahem.
posted by bonaldi at 6:54 AM on June 21, 2005

Marquis - I think both gigs are relatively late on. Doors for Jamie Lidell are at 10, so we wouldn't need to get there until 11ish. Dunno about Black Mountain as they swopped venues from Nice 'n' Sleazy to the ABC at the last minute. I'm not really fussed about Jamie Lidell either - think he'll be doing singy folky business instead of wiggy electronics.

(Also, Len and bonaldi - just realised this means we'll have to miss the massive pig roasting on a spit/huge supply of free booze at the List's summer party. Bums.)

ok, i'll try to come! (i realise that is MeFi MeetUp code for 'i'm not gonna be there') but I really mean it. get off work at 5, will bust it to the bus station, and should be on Sauchiehall at 7ish? rad.

posted by sgt.serenity at 7:10 AM on June 22, 2005

posted by Marquis at 8:23 AM on June 22, 2005

The Observatory's on Elderslie St, just past Charing X; map here, review here.

Ok - I should get into Glasgow at 7pm and will then hoof it to the Observatory on foot. Are you all going to be wearing MeFi-branded antlers or somefin'?
posted by Marquis at 5:51 AM on June 23, 2005

Nice one, Marquis.

No antlers, sadly - I'll make a wee sign to put on the table. Otherwise, ask for Kev or Scott at the bar, and ask them to point us out...
