Seen so many bands here I cant even remember them all. What a wonderful place. It'll be a pity when it inevitably burns down.
Very dirty place, but this is part of it charm. Very atmospheric.

Worth a visit but no longer what it was when everything was sold of a barrow and was mainly second hand clothes and household items. Now antiques(!) and collectables with all the usual 'made in china' items. Still worth a Sunday morning visir

The venue is okay, but compared to music venues in this day and age it's very outdated. I've heard better sound quality in other places, and it's very dingy looking now. The concerts I've been to there have been brilliant, but I always wonder why they chose the Barrowlands for their venue.
