Come Rain or Come Shine

Mrs CC and I had a great day out on Saturday.
After breakfast and a quick read of the papers we jumped on a bus and headed to the West End.
Our destination was the Band Stand in Kelvingrove Park where Last Night from Glasgow and Friends were putting on a show Come Rain or Come Shine. (Rain threatened on occasions but thankfully never came to much and indeed helped to clear the air).

We got there in time to catch the end of the Yip Man set. Not really my cup of tea but they looked like they were enjoying themselves. Strangely they were all wearing woolly hats on a sultry summer's day.

Next up were Cloth the latest band to sign to LNFG. Electronic yet melodic. Their set was sadly cut short due to technical problems but they look to have true potential. Looking forward to seeing them again and to hearing the album.

Cloth were followed by Codist who are on the LP Records label. Their music was a wee bit on the heavy side for me but it was clear that they are excellent at what they do and they were pretty well received.

Next up was Carla J Easton who thankfully seem to be recovering from her recent bout of viral meningitis,
She had a full band with her and produced an impressive wall of sound showcasing some of the stuff which will feature on her forthcoming album on Olive Grove Records.
She had all the kids up dancing and some even made in onto to the stage as her very own Glam Cheerleaders

Carla's down there somewhere

The next act were Mt. Doubt who I was looking forward to seeing for the first time. I've seen Annie Booth a couple of times as a solo act but never the whole band. They were very good and some purchases were duly made.
They were Mrs CC's favourite act of the day.

After a  few hours of sitting on the concrete seats we decided to call it a day.
We missed Medicine Men who I have seen before although Mrs CC won their album in the tombala.

We also missed Warren McIntyre & the Starry Skies. I picked up their album Ask the Animals which sounds good after an initial listen.

Thereafter we braved West End prices for a quick drink in Stavaigin prior to an excellent curry in the Shish Mahal  and then the bus home.

Thanks to all those who took the time and trouble into putting the event on
