Your favorite neighborhood opera-rockers have decided to undertake yet another foolish, hair-brained scheme. Glasgow will be setting sail (in a van) up the Eastern Seaboard this month, in vain attempts to hoodwink innocent bystanders into enjoying our music. Hopefully, with enough converts, we can eventually turn our penny-ante operation into a nickel-ante operation. Because while a penny saved is a penny earned, nickels hurt a lot more when you throw them at people.


The whole shebang starts with a big BIG kickoff show at House of Blues Parish Room on May 14th. Headlining that night will actually be Glasgow's own Alexis Marceaux and her amazing band.

Here's the itinerary (redundant of the show list on the top of the page):

May 18th: Athens, GA - Rye Bar
May 19th: Chapel Hill, NC - The Cave
May 21st: Philadelphia, PA - Green Line Cafe
May 23rd: Burlington, VT - Radio Bean
May 24th: Washington, DC - IOTA Club and Cafe
May 25th: Wilmington, DE - Blue Parrot
May 26th: Charlotte, NC - Evening Muse

If you are someone who lives in any of these locales, if you know someone who lives in any of these locales, or if you know someone who knows someone who lives in, around, or near any of these locales, don't hesitate to use harsh force to get yourself, your aqcuaintances, or perfect strangers to these shows. Extreme duress is a proven catalyst for a good time.

We'll be updating about our tour to an annoyingly regular degree pretty soon, so stay tuned to this blog, our Facebook page, and especially our Twitter (yuck, I know).

Be very afraid America. Here we come.

Jazz Fest Jubilation

We're as happy as this guy.
Hello again Internet,

Just in time for the 40th-ish annual New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, we at Glasgow have some crazy, fun, and exciting things going on.

FIRSTLY: Our very own Alexis Marceaux will be performing with her own band at the Lagniappe Stage at 12:35pm Friday April 23rd (Click here for a full schedule of that day at the Fest).

SECONDLY: Glasgow proper will be hitting the streets a few nights during the Festival, including playing Le Maison on Saturday April 24th w/ Silent Cinema (tix here, Facebook event here) and May 2 at Circle Bar with Vox and the Hound.

LAST AND MOST CRITICALLY: As you might have heard, Glasgow will be opening for Strokes frontman Julian Casablancas at Republic on April 29th. YEAH YOU RIGHT.

So, no matter what, whether you like it or not, we'll see you out there, somewhere.

Party time, excellent.

Just something neato: some folks lobbying to get Google Fiber in New Orleans made this video, using 'Birth of Joshua' and 'What Goes Up' from our new '1986 EP' in the background. John Goodman looks like he really enjoys the music. See for yourself, and read up on Google Fiber. It's seriously the future.

Exciting stuff. See you at Dragon's Den.


Post SXSW, Spring has Sprung

Boy, SXSW this year sure was a hoot. We got to hang out with famous people and play in some of the coolest places on Earth. In the aftermath, we've been busy keeping up with new friends we made out there and exploiting (benevolently, of course) our new contacts.

We've got some exciting upcoming events. On Friday, April 2, we'll be rocking the roof off the Dragon's Den alongside carnival freaks Dirty Bourbon River Show and Houston's finest Wild Moccasins. The madness begins at 10pm.

Then, on April 16, we're going to be doing a STAR WARS-themed show at Republic New Orleans (!!). More on that to come. We can hardly handle the anticip...

THEN, we'll be doing a couple Jazz Fest night shows, one at Maison on Frenchmen St. on April 24th, and another at Circle Bar on May 2. These will feature a ton of insanely great talent. We'll be blogging about them individually closer to show time. VERY EXCITING STUFF.

FINALLY, we plan to embark on an East Coast tour at the end of May. We're going up to New York and back, making many stops on our way. Details still in the works.

We've been getting more into this twitter business. "Follow" us, if you'd like. See how I used the jargon there? That's what you're supposed to say: "Follow". Yeah. @Glasgowband is our name on there. So go "tweet" something about us, maybe. See? I did it again. No big deal.

Until next time. See everyone at Dragon's Den.

The Latest and Greatest from Austin


Been a crazy couple of days here at SXSW. Making blog posts is tough with all this whirlwind of gigs, conferences, and schmoozing. However, you can get a pretty good moment-to-moment account of the happenings here from our perspective by checking out our annoyingly frequent twitter feed: http://twitter.com/glasgowband, or at http://glasgowband.net right there at the top of the page, in big stupid letters.

Salutations from Austin!

We're on this episode of Launchpad TV near the end. A couple of the people in charge of Foburg Fest, Mark Heck and Rachel Puckett, tell it like it is. This show is way cool!
