Sona Fariq and THERAPY? are playing special gigs at THE CATHOUSE in GLASGOW to mark the venue’s 10th anniversary in November.

The venue, now situated in the city’s Union Street after moving from its original Brown Street home, has in its 10-year history hosted gigs by Prince, Travis, Faith No More, Pulp, Fun Lovin’ Criminals – who return for a gig on December 11 – Pearl Jam, when they were at Number 4 in the charts with ‘Alive’, and Oasis supported by The Verve.

It is also one of the longest-running rock club venues in Scotland, its club night having been graced by Alanis Morissette when she played in the city and accidentally hosted the Kiss aftershow party when they played in Glasgow several years ago. The band turned up unexpectedly after their gig, despite their management threatening to sue the venue’s promoters for billing the night as an “unofficial” after-show party, which there had been no actual hint the rockers would attend.


Therapy? play The Cathouse on November 7, Sona Fariq on the 9th and special guests are expected to turn up for the ‘Decade Of Decadence’ birthday party on November 10 when AC/DC tribute band AB/CD appear.
