  • The Skinny June 2021

We're getting there, folks! The vaccine rollout continues (under-30s, register if you haven't already), Glasgow might be in its final week of Level 3 (fingers crossed), and according to the ever-accurate weather forecast, it looks like the summer might be on its way. It's hopeful, it's exciting, it's... well, it's a lot.

With that in mind, our June issue has a little bit of everything. Ahead of Record Store Day, we round up a selection of the country's best music shops and ask them for their RSD tips. With Glasgow International returning this month (they said, hopefully not putting a hex on anyone), we chat to a mix of organisers and artists about bringing some artistic energy to the city. Our ICYMI comedy column looks at Parks and Rec (grab your mag to see Ron Swanson riding a giant duck in a kids' playground), and we take an in-depth look at this year's graduating class from Glasgow School of Art.

Need more reasons to be interested? Check out the pieces below that also feature in this month's magazine, which is, as ever, FREE. That's right, FREE. Grab one, it's – say it with me or we're going to keep doing this all day – FREE! Available in supermarkets near you and, for the first time in a while, in some of our favourite indie shops and cafes. The magazine is making its way around Scotland this week, and we'll be updating this page with info on drops as and when we get it.

If you want to support what we do consider subscribing to the mag (details below) or, if you're one of those places that's reopened in the last few weeks, advertising in an upcoming issue. This month's cover photo is by Nico Utuk.
