Last week I was talking about getting tickets early to avoid disappointment and just as The Paisley Express came out on Friday The Bungalow announced that they not only sold out their Hue and Cry gig they quickly added another one and guess what? it was sold out too. Rocknrollas are also selling out gigs quickly. All of Paisley’s venues have a close up and personal feel to them due mainly to their capacity so when you see a gig you like, don’t wait too long to make your mind up. Keep Music Live.
