Pot Luck a place to eat in the village



Sadly No Way Back at 38 Nithsdale Road has now gone, the good news is, that as luck would have it, it has been replaced with a new informal and dog-friendly cafe/restaurant offering great looking and tasting imaginative food in a friendly and informal atmosphere.

Serious food and low prices, what's not to like?

Kelly's No More?


One of the village's oldest Bars and live music venues Kelly's has closed. The Irish pub, previously known as the Elcho Bar was built on the site of Granny McDougall's inn, which was also known as the Robert Burn Tavern dating back to the time when the village's original 'land' buildings constructed on top of the old burn when it was covered over in 1849.

BBCSicks Music Festival in Strathbungo!


As part of the BBCSicks music festival, the legend that is Paddy Steer returns to Glasgow and this time visits Strathbungo's Jamaican themed bar the Rum Shack's downstairs 'Dancehall'.

We're told that he is part cosmic, part afrobeat, 100% mutantturbojazzpunkdisco It's hard to put Paddy Steer's live shows into words. One thing's for sure, they're different from his studio recordings - they're a lot more energetic, freestyle and definitely aimed at those who might feel the urge to suddenly dance uncontrollably.

Also on board for the ride we're happy to have Ewan Chambers spin some records for us. Ewan runs the Healthy nights at Glasgow's Berkeley Suite where we've lately seen a spate of great guest DJs: Joakim, Daniel Wang B2B Eric Duncan, Rebolledo, Tama Sumo, Justin VanDerVolgen and more.

GK Machine stamps the Invisible Inc seal of approval on the remainder of the night. https://invisible-inc.bandcamp.com/
