I would not have known John Cale was coming to roundhouse because I did not have an email notification. John Cale is very high on my list of artist I want to see in concert one day. I have purchased a ticket now. Thank you so much! By the way, I was at the Roundhouse three weeks ago on Halloween weekend for two nights attending Patti Smith concerts.

I got a bit carried away with the James tickets, to be fair. But yeah, when I saw them in 2014 was the best they'd been since waaaaay back when I saw them at Brixton supported by a long-haired rock band called Radiohead.

Quite understandable, I have seen them twice in the last eighteen months and in that time only Jason Isbell has been better, unfortunately circumstances dictate that I am unable to catch the

newly announced tour, very disappointing indeed.

P.S. For anyone who might be interested........with us there is a 90min programme about Wilko Johnson BBC1 tonight at 10.35, should be interesting.

I saw Radiohead as a support too.

1991 or so.

It was at The Boardwalk in Manchester. Headline act were Midway Still (there is one for the teenagers!)

The same year I saw Green Day supporting Midway Still.

It is safe to say their careers went in opposite directions after those gigs.

Oh yeah, Lorraine. Advance tickets went on sale yesterday at 9am. I spent 90 minutes in a virtual queue, but it was worth it!

24 Jan 2016 Jason Isbell Glasgow O2 ABC

Just got organised for this one.

Part of "Celtic Connections", any idea what the vibe is like round Glesca during this?

Gig should be done, what, 2230-2300 (there'll be a "disco get-out/ghetto" on a Sunday night) so I'm wondering if there'll be any late night live music thereafter.

MagicRat, got tickets for Lucinda Williams Celtic Connections Wed 20Jan, and also to see her at O2 London 22nd and 23rd then back to Glasgow for Jason on 24th.

Not sure about late night live music on a Sunday, but just a short walk away is Howlin` Wolf, open until 3am, playing continious good Blues music.

Celtic Connections is great fun. Seen some of the best gigs of my life there. Grab tickets to either the Festival Club or Late Night Sessions if either are on that evening. 7-8 bands each getting 20-30 mins until 2-3-4am (depending on who turns up). Real mix of folk, blues, country, world music and the occasional big name. Festival Club tends to be a younger crowd, is much more raucous and gets the (slightly) bigger acts; Late Night Sessions is mainly acoustic, low-key stuff. Both serve great beer from the Drygate Brewery, so worth it even if the music's crap.

I was gonna ask about that late night thing at Drygate.

Good craic, yeah?

If I was on my Todd I'd fancy it, but some mates of mine are going to Motorhead the same night so I'm meeting them post-Isbell.

That'll probably end up messy.

Been to SA twice, saw them both times. The last one basically a recreation of the Division Bell show. Absolutely brilliant.

You will enjoy Martyn Joseph, Jon. For a minute I thought Saltaire was somewhere exotic until I looked it up :lol:

Now then, The Icicle Works? 5 times? I had to YouTube them - think I know Love is a Wonderful Colour (?) but that's about it. That era sort of passed me by a bit!
