Another week, another gig list, and the most interesting shows of the week are surely by Dominic Waxing Lyrical. He’s touring West Lothian and Edinburgh by barge (!) and stopping off in various locations including Broxburn on Wednesday, and Falkirk’s Behind The Wall on Friday.
More mundane logistically, but still a good show we’re sure will be Rustie at the Sub Club in Glasgow on Tuesday. And possibly mundane, but also possibly mental, will be Rick Wakeman at Perth Concert Hall.
Wednesday sees the Xcerts at Aberdeen’s Lemon Tree while new-ish electro outfit Lylo are at Glasgow’s Old Hairdressers, also on the 15th.
Is it wrong to list a band called Horn simply because of their name? Well, they’re at Easterbrook Hotel in Dumfries on Thursday. Also, Best Girl Athlete are at the Pipe Factory in Glasgow (Calton, to be more precise) while in Edinburgh, at the Citrus Club, it’s punk legends 999. Oh, and the Xcerts‘ wee tour of the Highlands takes them to Inverness Ironworks.
Friday 17th and Martin Stephenson, sans Daintees we presume, plays the Village Inn East Kilbride while in Glasgow, at Sleazys, it’s Vasa. In Dundee, three-piece power trio Paws play Beat Generator, and across in Perth, Mickey 9s are at the Green Room. And in what we might call an ‘intimate’ show, it’s Duke Special at Edinburgh’s Electric Circus.
On Saturday it is, of course, Record Store Day. Randolph’s Leap play Glasgow’s LoveMusic plus two Edinburgh shows, at VoxBox and Underground Solu’shn.
Lightweights Martin Stephenson plays one show in one of those towns, at Glasgow’s Roxy 171, while the Mickey 9s likewise wuss out with a solitary show at Edinburgh’s Banshee Labrynth.
On Sunday 19th Seasick Steve is at the Barrowland.
Cara Mitchell plays Aberdeen’s Blue Lamp. And in Glasgow at the O2, it’s GY!BE and in Edinburgh, 80s popster Black is at the Caves.
