After a stint at Glasgow’s legendary King Tut’s mere months ago, supporting Aussies Between You And Me and Canada’s own Story Untold, our favourite pop-rockers Tigress were finally back with a bang and a killer headline slot
Opening the show with local alternative rock band, Deter, alongside Edinburgh’s energetic pop rock quintet Forrest Can’t Run, and the final support band for the evening, Glasgow locals Killing Our Darlings bring a darker electronic rock sound to the stage. The evening presents a perfect mix of bands, music that does exactly what it says on the tin, makes heads bounce and bodies move. The crowd made up with familiar faces, friends and family of all the bands, regular attendees of Glasgow gigs, the small venue packed with a true Scottish turn out in support of all the bands on the bill.
Tigress take to the stage, dropping single after single with an elevated intensity, smashing through fan favourites ‘Power Lines‘ and ‘Over Your Love‘. Front woman Katy Jackson‘s onstage energy is infectious and empowering, considering the crowd is made up of a lot of young women. The band treat the crowd to a new song, different to the classic Tigress we’ve grown to love, but a new sound that is guaranteed to blow everyone away when it is finally released! Although the show wasn’t a sell out, the atmosphere was electric, valuing quality over quantity.
