We now have a facebook event page (https://www.facebook.com/events/771197639612627) and advance weekend tickets available for £16 (http://www.seetickets.com/event/the-gla ... afe/824644

Oh, and some bands! Plenty more to come, but for now we're announcing Martha, The Hobbes Fanclub, The Swapsies, Chrissy Barnacle, Lost Pets, The Mini Skips, The Hector Collectors, How To Swim & Insect Heroes
We had so much fun brightening up February with pop music last year that we're back for 2015 and we've added an extra day!

Starting on Friday night, carrying on all day on Saturday and ending with an afternoon and evening of acoustic music on the Sunday we will be filling The Glad Cafe with some of the finest indiepop from Glasgow and beyond!

We have a limited number of earlybird weekend tickets for the bargain price of £16 so get in now to take advantage of that as we still have many bands to announce!

For now though we can tell you that we have...

Martha - DIY Punk pop from Fortuna Pop! signed Durham band.

the hobbes fanclub - Distortion pedals, reverb and glorious, soaring pop songs from Bradford.

Insect Heroes - Weird pop from the latest signing to Lost Map records.

Chrissy Barnacle - Beautiful and heartfelt folk songs from the engagaing Glaswegian performer.

The Hector Collectors - All too rare appearance from the Motherwell/Glasgow band often referred to as ramshackle but with tunes and lyrics well worth listening to!

The Swapsies - Continuing the grand Liverpool tradition of finely crafted pop songs.

The Mini Skips - Charming and deeply witty indiepop duo from Bristol.

How to Swim - Purveyors of loud Glaswegian chamber-pop and "a dizzying display of talent".

Lost Pets - Recently formed in Nottingham, they want to be an upbeat indiepop party band but keep writing melancholic folk pop songs by accident.

Brilliant lineup so far! I used to travel to Glasgow and visit my friends every 3 months. The last time was in 2010 :-(
I will most probably be there...with our 3 year old one!
I slice the surface here beside you/Lungs filled liquid yell I love you/Sound moves further underwater
Deep and dark my submarine bells groan in greens and grey/Mine would chime a thousand times/To make you feel okay..

Ahaha! I have a very (very) vague recollection of that happening LIVE! IN MY LIVING ROOM!

You should definitely all come up for this because, quite apart from the indiepop goodness on offer, I am skint and can't afford to travel to England to see you.

If you Google "layer of chips youtube" it's the first result! I'm going to ensure it's played on a loop on a massive screen during our set.

That video was the first time I'd ever heard any of you mysterious Internet people speak!
I'm excited so many folk seem to be travelling up this year though. The pressure's on now!
And 3 year-old's are very welcome up until 8pm as long as Lost Pets agree to keep their salty language to a minimum!

Ha! We don't even know any swear words.

I tried to convince our singer to do a cover of Come into My Mouth and she was horrified. We're definitely a family band. Promise we won't be scandalous, your children are safe with us.

I hope I can make it, but if not I will crash the pub or something, as I live 5 minutes from the café.

Hello, champs.

Do you know when you'll be announcing who will be playing when, etc? I've not been to Glasgow for a few years, and I'd like to have a proper look 'round.

Yours selfishly.

Hopefully pretty soon. Just a couple more to announce (waiting on confirmation) and then we should be able to do that.

Though because of how the venue operates we can't really start too early anyway so there won't be a band on before 3 or so on the Saturday.
