Acrylic Iqon are one of the bands playing at the new Broadcast cafe, bar and venue on Sauchiehall Street

Glasgow’s music fans were left weeping into their hoodies earlier this year when the Captain’s Rest in the West End closed suddenly. Happily, the owners have jumped back into the saddle and opened Broadcast, a cafe, venue and bar at the rock ‘n’ roll end of Sauchiehall Street.

Hip ‘n’ happening

The 5pm blog isn’t going to pretend that we are still hip enough to know who David Bazan is or what, exactly, Acrylic Iqon might sound like. To be honest, we’re not even entirely sure that we even got the spelling of that last one right.

However, if you are on top of Glasgow’s hip and happening music scene then you will know that they are acts which are scheduled to play the venue soon.


We hear that Broadcast do great pizza and are winning fans with their salads as well as their cheese and veg empanadas.
