Glasgow music legends Hipsway will take to the stage at the Barrowland Ballroom.

The 80s favourites will return to offer a special platform for up-and-coming homegrown young musicians: John Rush and his band; The Decadent Movement and young indie-rockers Petty Cassettes.

Hipsway's last show at The Barrowland was a sell-out and this one, part of Glasgow's newest festival CeilidhFest, is set to do the same.

With its hit Honeythief, Hipsway achieved UK gold-album status and went on to tour extensively over the years to an ever-growing fanbase before disbanding.

Founding members Skin and Pim reunited five years ago and have since performed sell-out shows and tours up and down the country.

Speaking about their Barrowland gig, Hipsway singer Grahame Skinner said: “Lockdown has meant it’s been a while since our last big show so we’re really looking forward to this gig. The Barrowland is always an amazing venue to play.

“One of the reasons we’re playing this gig is to highlight the support bands, most of whom have not played to an audience or venue of this size before. We hope to provide a platform for them and give them the opportunity we had”

“I know what an amazing opportunity that would have been for me as a 19-year-old starting out in the music business to play somewhere like The Barrowland – it’s an amazing experience and I hope they enjoy it.”

One of the support acts is indie rocker group The Decadent Movement, formed in Glasgow last year.

Their lyrics reflect the real-life experiences of the band members, bringing a rawness that is relatable to so many of their listeners, dealing with issues like addiction, mental health, and street life - with four members of the six-piece are part of Fellowships, Cocaine Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous.

Guitarist Jaz said: “It’s been a dream goal for all of us in this band to play Barrowlands. We’re really excited about it.”

Jaz added: “We’ve all experienced mental health issues and feel that it’s important to speak about that.

“We want people to love our music but feel we have a message to carry and think it’s important to be able to speak about mental health, especially in the music industry – and particularly amongst men, who tend not to speak openly to each other about their problems.

“We feel we’ve got a platform now and can write songs about our life growing up in rough areas of Glasgow and things that we’ve experienced and use these bad experiences as positives to make good songs and write about real life – some of it may be gritty but it’s the truth.”

The show will take place on November 24 with tickets available here.
