    Mogwai - Play Live to ‘Zidane: A 21st Century Portrait’

    Amazing outdoor gig in a gap site at 220 Broomielaw, Glasgow. Mogwai played their soundtrack live to Douglas Gordon’s film showing on a large screen behind the band.  Great use of the space with a view to the Kingston Bridge in the background. Beautiful night!
