This years annual Alternative Promotions charity event is in aid of the M.E. Association and, as well as the usual array of incredible bands, we're adding something a little bit different this year - a BAND MERCH DRIVE... "what's a band merch drive?", you ask; have a look further down for full details.
As mentioned, we've got a crackin' line-up of bands for you to rock out to:
We are a hard working hard rock band from Glasgow!!! Enjoying every minute of what we do as it truly is our passion!
Rolland Square are a 4 piece originals indie rock/pop band based in Glasgow writing fresh, upbeat tunes with Scottish vocals and catchy melodies.
EBB would be what happened if Tool and Shinedown made sweet, sweet love and gave birth to a mostly female band.
PaperSailor is a one-man rock outfit from Glasgow.
Solo project from Singer/Songwriter Colin Bell.
BAND MERCH DRIVE
In a nutshell; if you have any old band merch that you're no longer into, feel free to bring it along on the night and, we'll allow other gig-goers to give it a new home, in exchange for a small donation to the charity.
It can be anything, from t-shirts to CD's, badges to mugs, etc. Nobody likes mucky things, though, so there are a few rules:
1) all items MUST be clean, otherwise we can't accept them
2) all items MUST be in at least good condition - for example, ripped clothing cannot be accepted, chipped mugs cannot be accepted, etc
3) any clothing that's noticeably faded may not be accepted - essentially, if it's not in a condition you'd find acceptable yourself, it's probably not worth bringing it down
More rules may be added closer to the date, please understand that these are necessary, so that others aren't disappointed with what's on offer.
As with everything else raised, every penny brought in by this drive will be added to the charity's total.
As if this wasn't enough, if you buy your tickets in advance, the first 50 of you through the door will receive one of our bitchin' stickers! See our Facebook event page for details.
PLUS, straight after the fundraiser will be From Beyond, where you can keep on rockin' to 80's rock & metal bangers until 3am!
TICKETS £5: from NHC & Tickets Scotland
56 Oswald Street, Glasgow, G1 4PL
EVERY PENNY GOES TO THE M.E. ASSOCIATION
