Gig Review | Creeper | The Garage, Glasgow | 16.03.2022 

At the 4th time of trying, after 3 rescheduled gigs moved due to covid and restriction changes – Southampton band Creeper finally roll into Glasgow for their sold out headline show in The Garage on night 3 of the re-planned Sex, Death & Infinite Void Tour

On the build up to the show the band hailed Glasgow as a home from home as they shared their love for the city on their social media platforms – frontman Will Gould has always had high praises for a Scottish crowd both with Creeper and his side project Salem. 


Glasgow powerhouse Vukovi take to the stage in their hometown for the first time since their headline show in October last year. Lead singer Janine Mary was in the mood the second she stepped on stage – “come on this is Glasgow” with the added extras straight after fierce opening C.L.A.U.D.I.A as she doesn’t need to ask twice to get this crowd going.

The pits open and the crowd are going as hard as you’d expect from a Vukovi show. Hits Kill It and SLO echo around the room to a huge response from the crowd. The evening even had the treat of the band giving a glimpse of future drops by playing new single Lasso teasing heavy riffs and in your face drum beats.

The set closes with the loudest crowd engagement of the night with arguably their most favoured anthem – La Di Da. What better way to warm up a Glasgow crowd than to book one of Glasgow’s best and most impressive live acts. The energy and excitement brought to the night just shows what Vukovi have to offer and undoubtably are set for high heights.


With more than a 2 year wait, the time had come for Creeper to showcase album number two Sex, Death & The Infinite Void to a sold out Glasgow Garage – originally booked in the east end of the city deep in the Gallowgate, the gig was moved due to such high demand.

It was clear to see the band had been eager for this show and absence certainly makes the heart grow fonder – the love was shared in that room between fans and band alike. As the sparks rose from the onstage pyro, on steps Will draped in angel wings and kicking the evenings proceedings with old school banger Hiding With The Boys.

As a huge fan of Creeper, the set was a perfect mix of old and new that made the wait for it all even more worth it. From songs like Born Cold and Cyanide to sending it back 5 years to album one classics Suzanne and Down Below – a reaction from the crowd that left Will speechless. We also seen hits such as Be My End and Paradise (a place no one survives the night).

It was time for Will to take a step to the side and leave it to keys and backing vocalist Hannah Hermione to take centre stage. Walking on to the sound of wedding bells and looking her best in a wedding dress, Han or if you know, Annabelle brings a beautiful side to the set with a stunning and emotional tour debut of 2017’s Crickets before quickly leaving the stage and running back on for a duet with Will for lead single of their recent EP, Midnight before taking centre stage again and absolutely owning it with Ghosts Over Calvary.

A set that could have lasted all night was sadly coming to a close and what better way to bow out than to do it with songs fit for purpose – VCR before an explosive end with Annabelle that saw more pyro on stage – the perfect way to end the perfect night. The show may have taken a little longer than initially planned but the work and efforts that were added to ensure the gig even happened just highlights the love Creeper have for their fans and what they do. ‘You gotta live a little when the world just wants you sad’

Bowing out in style
