4–18 NOV YOU’VE GOT 15 DAYS TO LIVE! The Listloves championing Scottish arts and culture. So, it’s to our delight that boundary- pushing experimental music festivals, such as Glasgow’s Instal (page 57), and digital arts programmes like Dundee’s NEoN (page 22) are flourishing in difficult times. In the same spirit, we’re pleased to note the rise of Glasgow’s East End, with shops Che Camille and Made in the Shade’s Supermercado giving the Barras market a new edge (see Wish List for some of their products, and look out for a Barras feature next month). Here’s to a winter of innovation and exciting new things rather than hiding out in mediocrity.
