A triple bill of local bands at the Arches, Glasgow with Waiting For Go, Model Jet Pilot, The Alter-natives and Seams.
Waiting For Go are a young five piece from Glasgow who combine a wide range of influences to form their own unique brand of danceable indie rock. Formed in 2010, the band quickly progressed from small local shows to bigger headline shows at some of Glasgow’s most notable venues, alongside a string of support slots with the likes of Miniature Dinosaurs, Bwani Junction, The Imagineers, Little eye and LightGuides.
Having attracted the attention of acclaimed producers Michael Bannister and Ross Hamilton, the band quickly began work on debut single Let You Go at Rocket Science studios, to be released on the night of the gig.

Legendary international acts, cult festivals and the most exciting new bands collide at one of the city’s most eclectic live venues.
It’s perhaps natural that, as one of the nation’s most unusual live music venues, our programme spans rock, pop, indie, electronica, soul, jazz, country, metal, folk, and the many sub-genres inbetween. The unique atmosphere and space of the building means it’s often used for anything from intimate acoustic gigs to stage-diving, sweaty rammies and slick, spectacular international concerts.
Supporting the best examples of the known and the not-so-known, the Arches stage is host to everything from the latest stars of leftfield pop, such as Grimes and Chvrches, to alternative indie rock acts such as Peace and Yeasayer, prog and rock heroes such as The Fall, Swans and Dinosaur Jnr, and cutting edge electronic talent, from Rustie to James Blake.
We also regularly plays host to international legends – from Martha Reeves to Ben E. King to Jane Birkin – and provide the perfect multi-room setting for various festivals, from Celtic Connections to the Glasgow Jazz Festival. In 2012, the hallowed arches played hosted to the UK-wide Africa Express tour, featuring Damon Albarn, Baaba Maal and a trainload of world music stars, and in 2013, the building was transformed into a sonic Cineplex for our own co-curated cult event the Glasgow Music and Film Festival, featuring live film scores and AV sets from Jeff Mills, Dieter Moebius and Raime.
“A classical gig in the vaults of Scotland’s dance mecca might sound an odd prospect, but the Arches proved the perfect setting”
