Fire! Camels! Chess! Golden Silvers’ Tour Diary


Fetch the engine! We always look forward to Glasgow. It never seems to fail and this time didn’t disappoint.

There was a surreal moment on the way up when – distracting us from another chess showdown – we saw a camel resting happily with the cows in a field by the motorway.

We arrived at the legendary King Tut’s and everything was running smoothly until halfway through Local Natives’ show the fire alarm went off and everyone had to evacuate the building. Everyone in the building waited out in the street while two fire engines came to sort out the situation.

When finally aloud backed in, the Natives quickly got it going again with a finale played with some help from every drummer on the tour!

After the show we all headed down to Nice N’ Sleazies and then on to the art school and a party till the morning started creeping in. Next stop Newcastle…
