The Hangover Lounge's 5th Birthday
Glasgow's a great, great city. Culturally, it's vibrant to an almost insane degree. It's hard to keep up with everything that's going on so you miss more than you see. What it doesn't have, however, is The Hangover Lounge. You have to go to London for that. The weekend after next (May, 26th) it celebrates it's 5th birthday with a gig at its regular home, The Lexington, featuring 3 special groups:
My love for Birdie knows no bounds. Debsey Wykes possesses one of the finest pop voices ever to be etched into vinyl. I was lucky enough to see Birdie a little over a year ago (thanks, again, to The Hangover Lounge team) so I know what I'll be missing by not being to see them next week. Amor de Dias and Hacia Dos Veranos have created two of the loveliest, classiest lps of the year so far and both will keep things thoughtful and sophisticated. With this show to look forward to and the memory of Robert Forster's appearance at their recent celebration of the life and work of his fellow Go-Between, Grant McLennan, The Hangover Lounge Organising Committee must be sporting smiles as wide as 70s flares. If at all possible, be there on the 26th. There's not even the remotest chance that you'll regret it!
