Tsunami pop

I'm tempted to catch a train up to Glasgow in February for the tsunami benefit concert. It looks a lot better than the Cardiff one; rather than the populistic blend of shiny top-40 R&B/pop the Welsh gig was filled with, it's a who's-who of Scottish indie, with Belle & Sebastian, Mogwai, Franz Ferdinand and Teenage Fanclub just four of the names playing.

Can anyone recommend good, reasonably inexpensive accommodation in Glasgow (near the SECC, in the centre, or in the Byres Rd. precinct)?
