This weekend Gig Buddies with Thera had our first social at Glasgow’s Iconic King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut. The Gig Buddies team first started chatting with the team at King Tut’s about working together shortly before lockdown, so we were thrilled to finally get out to gig after such a long wait.
The Gig did not disappoint at all. The ‘New Noise’ All-Dayer was a mini-festival showcase of interesting new bands from all over the UK. King Tut’s has a well established reputation as the small venue where great bands play right before they hit it big, so we’re hoping one of the bands we saw will be all over the radio very soon.
None of the Gig Buddies members who came along had ever been to King Tut’s before, but all have had a positive experience and are keen to go back.
“It was a really good time. I liked all the bands. It really took you back looking at the stairs with all the different bands listed. I was thinking ‘Oh my god, look at all the people who played here! Wow!’”
“I had a smashing time. Good company and good music. I had to leave a wee bit early because I’d been out with my buddy the night before so I got a bit tired. I’m glad I went anyway, great company and a good time. Looking forward to seeing everyone again soon” -George
“I thought it was a great venue, the staff were very welcoming. A good chance o see some new bands, I’ll be keeping an eye out for Heartworms. I thought they all had a high standard of musicianship” -Neil, member
We’ve already made plans to come back to King Tut’s in December 2020 to see Retro Video Club (a popular Edinburgh Indie band who happen to be friends of the project).
This gig was a great way to kick off our partnership with an iconic Glasgow venue. We have some exciting further developments in the pipeline for this partnership, so watch this space for new announcements in the near future!
