The Dillinger Escape Plan live review - Queen Margaret Union, Glasgow
Venue: Queen Margaret Union, Glasgow
Dillinger plot their Escape Plan in Glasgow!
This show should have been moved to a bigger venue. Even the deep, dark corners of the QMU offer no respite for the claustrophobe. Despite that, there’s a notable level of respect and lack of body space invasion, except at the bar. Is this a wake? Nobody’s sure.
Just before the house lights go down, the Glaswegian chant of “Here we, here we, here we fuckin’ go” starts up. After a flicker of white flashes (not for the strobophobe), Dillinger batter into Limerent Death, and vocalist Greg Puciato makes an early bid to enter the crowd, warning: “I’m fucking around tonight.”
