    Why we love Twitter - a story about Ellie Goulding and a fan

    Jun022011

The live music scene in Glasgow is incredible, thanks to a great mix of home grown talent and top bands from all over the world. Three of my favourite places to go to concerts in Glasgow are the O2 Academy, the Garage and the SECC.
