I've done a wee bit of research, but thought I may aswell ask someone in the know what they think the best idea is.
I live near Aberdeen, and am coming down for 2 Idlewild gigs in December on consecutive nights (17th & 18th). The plan is to drive down after work on the 17th, stay over night and drive back home after the gig on 18th.
Now, the thing I'm worrying about is what to do with my car. The gig is at King Tut's and their website says there is not much street parking available. Doors open at 8:30 so I would probably have time to dump my car where we're staying and then get to the gig if I had to.
So here's our options - I think - and the problems with them.
*Stay in a city centre hotel that has car parking (does this exist?) Then what do I do with my car once we've checked out on the morning of the 18th until the gig finishes?
*Stay in a B&B/guesthouse further out which has parking, but then have to get there after the gig (11:30ish), plus get out of Glasgow.
*Stay with a friend on the South Side (I think Mount Florida is the nearest train station). This may have the same problems as above, and is the opposite side of town we need to be for getting back to Aberdeen.
Money is a wee bit tight, and I really don't like driving in Glasgow, but there's no other way of getting back to Aberdeen at that time of night.
Phew, I know this is a big post, but can anyone advise me on what they think is the best thing to do?
