Up for some live music? Sorry, you’ll have to wait until the weekend…
But what a weekend… on Friday 21st in Edinburgh, Miles Kane is at the Picture House, though a more appealing prospect is (the band formerly known as the Starlets yada yada) A New International, who play The Counting House. And somewhere nearby, Robbie Lesuik – formerly of Y’all Is Fantasy Island, of course – is at the Raeburn.
Equally busy in Glasgow on Friday – Seamus Fogarty celebrates the launch of his new album for Lost Map Records, with a show on the southside at the Glad Cafe. In the town centre, Spook School are at the 13th Note, and How To Swim launch new album Niagrama at the CCA.
Most intersting/obscure venue of the night is The Bike Station – it is indeed a bike recycling project at 65 Haugh Road (that’s kinda near tThe 78), hosting music from Lorraine McCauley & The Borderlands plus Colonel Mustard + The Dijon 5.
And in Aberdeen, at Tunnels, Machines In Heaven launch their new album (expect an enthusiastic review on isthismusic.com, though not as OTT as Radio ONe’s Ally McCrae, who reckons they could be the next Chvrches…)
If you remain in Aberdeen for Saturday, then Pinact play at Cellar35. If however you’ve headed south, then… there’s not that much on, although Nina Nesbitt returns home triumphant from her SXSW shows with a show at Edinburgh’s Picturehouse.
She’s there on Sunday as well. Or, along at the Voodoo Room, The New Mendicants (that TFC Blake / Pernice combo we may have mentioned in the past)
Finally, in Glasgow on Sunday, Californian hip-hoppers Ugly Duckling are at Broadcast.
