CONTENTS 3 SEP–5 NOV 2015 | LIST.CO.UK
Autumn’s here – and that means back to school for all you students. If you’re new to these parts, welcome! Turn to page 95 for our 2015 Student Guide,
your essential guide to uni life in Edinburgh and Glasgow, complete with our
top picks for bars, cafes, music venues, cinemas, theatres and more across both cities.
For all you non-students, there’s plenty to keep you entertained so the post-summer blues don’t set in. For film-lovers, Michael Fassbender excels as Macbeth (page 16),
and we’re also impressed by Craig Roberts’ debut feature Just Jim (page 14).
We’ve also got interviews with local-band-done-good Chvrches (page 24), whose new album Every Open Eye is out soon, and US comedian Doug Stanhope (page 26),
who’s over on these shores for his latest UK tour.
