A major addition to the South's indie scene is the Glad Cafe, a dynamic, community-focused indie gem.
It's warm, welcoming, affordable and boasts a fantastic venue which is suited to gigs, film screenings and arts events alike.
All of this is fantastic for the Southside, which has long been lacking an indie community hangout.
If the sound of Govanhill is the rumblings of undercover techno clubs (Ministry of Sound favourite Rebecca Vasmant recently played a secret party in G-Hill Baths), Shawlands has a more lo-fi, organic noise these days.
The venue's schedule is packed with left-leaning, eclectic, folky shows.
Its birthday weekend was soundtracked by folk rockers Trembling Bells and Big Hogg on Saturday, with an electronica super group comprising members of Conquering Animal Sound, Jonnie Common and Field Mouse.
Its menu is as diverse as its schedule: a locally-sourced array of familiar items and out-there additions.
As well as Crossmyloaf artisan bread (I'm a sucker for any foodstuff that involves a pun) there are Middle Eastern and Spanish platters and locally-roasted Dear Green coffee.
Shawlands isn't short of late-night venues but it's hard to argue that there's anything quite like the Glad Café.
It already feels like a fixture on the local scene after only a year of existence - here's to many more.
