Local bands including The Black Triangles, The Halos, tribute acts Them Beatles and The Underground Jam, and rock 'n' rollers The Shiverin' Sheiks performed at the 02 ABC in Glasgow yesterday.

A total of 14 acts took to the stage at the Rock for the Clutha all day event which kicked off at 1pm and continued until late.

Hundreds of people came and went from the event throughout the day, stopping to enjoy and drink and a chat with fellow fans.

Most of the bands played regularly at the Clutha or had played their in the past.

One fan described a "nice atmosphere," with people chatting and drinking together while they listened to the music.

Money raised from the event will go towards helping those affected by the tragedy.

More than 100 people were in the Clutha bar in Stockwell Street when a police helicopter crashed through the roof on Friday, November 29, killing the three people on the aircraft and a further seven in the pub.

Last week, top comedians including Still Game star Ford Kiernan took part in a sell-out comedy show which raised around £20,000.
