Celtic Connections glitterati treat us to a night of traditional Scottish music, avoiding the obvious fact that “Scottish Music” should now probably just be a comedy kazoo.

Cumbria's Fight For Friday bring huge pop-punk to Bloc, combining classic high energy pop punk rhythmic elements and mature, yet catchy vocal themes to create a more modern sounding brand of Pop Punk similar to bands such as Neck Deep, All Time Low and New Found Glory. Support from Stolen Wings.

With a brand new album about to be released through the incredible Specialist Subject Records, expect summer vibes with a grounding in chugging punky, rocky, awesomeness. Sometimes it sounds a bit like Weezer, which is a damn good thing. Support from Lightcliffe.

Filling in the void for the man only half as cool as Eddie Murphy (since he went to work for NASA like ten years ago), Stretched mother chicken Scott Murphy returns and plays two whole sets! One of Scotland's best musicians.

For the last few years Bloc+ has been running one of Glasgow's most popular and consistently high-quality open mic nights, thanks largely to Jamie Sturt and friends, not to mention our incredibly gifted and facially pleasing clientele. The gear is all ready to go so, if you're fed up spending Sunday nights with your Monday night fear, then head on down!
