As far as good local causes and good local line up’s go, you’d have to travel far or wait a long time to top next Saturday’s Concert to Save the Sighthill Stone Circle. Featuring a line up including RM Hubbert, Aidan Moffat, Stuart Braithwaite, Eugene Kelly and special guests The Twilight Sad, to name but a few, the gig will take place over two performance rooms at multi-arts venue Platform in Glasgow’s Easterhouse on Saturday 27th July.
The Sighthill stones, built in 1979, were the first astronomically aligned stones in the UK for over 3500 years. They currently sit on a site earmarked for redevelopment and the campaigners are hoping to ‘raise awareness of the circle as an asset for the existing and future community in Sighthill, and to secure its future as an integral part of the proposed regeneration of the area‘.
Tickets for the gig are priced £6 and are available from Mono or Tickets Scotland. A bus will also run, leaving Mono at 4:30pm (Doors 5pm) returning after the last performance around 11pm.
