Pop!South #3

2 Aug

Making Marks from Norway had good banter

What a couple of weeks! Thank you again, again, and again to everyone who’s come out to our first three shows. We’ve had a blast and hope you have too! Nina, from Is This Music? wrote a lovely review of Gig #2, which gives us hope we’re doing things right.

This was our final Indietracks-themed gig, and as much as it was ambitious to put on 3 gigs in 10 days, it’s been so much fun and we’re sad to see them over.

The first band on this bill was Making Marks, formerly My Little Pony, from Norway. Although the bass player was born in Edinburgh, so there’s a local connection! They were lovely, and their frontman even tried to work some newly learned Scottish idioms into his banter. I don’t think I’ve seen anyone say ‘You cunts are awright’ so damn sweetly!



Next up were local favourites The Felt Tips, who haven’t played in Glasgow in years. It was great to see them back, and their new material is fresh and full of energy.


[UPDATE! StringBeanJen posted a video from the performance]

The Ballet are usually a three-piece, but visa issues prevented their bassist for coming with them, but Craig and Greg did an amazing job as a two-piece.

By now, the venue was pretty full, so I didn’t manage to get a good shot of them. Of course, I’d rather get bad shots and folks were enjoying themselves!

John Graham has some much better shots of The Ballet, The Felt Tips and Making Marks over at his site. Give them a look!

I think the whole Pop!South team is now trying to recover from an amazing couple of weeks, but we’ll be back with some more great shows in August. Hopefully we’ll see you out soon!
