Something of a brief roundup this week, but on Tuesday, Livingston instrumental rock four-pieceFlux Velociraptor play Glasgow’s BLOC, supporting Mannequin Death Squad.
On Tuesday, Lost Map’s new signings Lazy Day perform their ‘Ribbons’ EP (I assume), at the Hun and Pint, and at Leith Depot on the folowing night. while Bon Iver‘s at the Playhouse, for the first of two nights.
Same night, Nick Cave‘s at the Hydro in Glasgow.
Thursday sees Angus Munro push his epic pop tuneage including the excellent ‘Bleed It Out’, with a show at the Old Hairdressers in Glasgow.
In Dundee, Lazy Day play Conroy’s Basement.
And Glasgow’s Life Model, West Lothian’s Adullboy, Idkid and Mad Rodents play at Boghall Parish Church Hall (near Bathgate) for Music for Mental Health on Friday night.
In Aberdeen on Friday, London popsters The Big Moon are at the Lemon Tree.
In Leven (of all places, as we say on these occasions), Glasvegas – remember them? are at Truth Nightclub.
And in Ullapool, it’s Loopallu – sold out of course, so enjoy The View, Glasvegas and the Pigeon Detectives if you’re going.
On Saturday, The Wendys and Bendy Toy (yes, BENDY TOY) are at Audio in Glasgow, and in something of an epic gig clash, Mt. Doubt and Acrylic launch their Scottish Fiction Records split single, at the 13th Note. Add to that the multi-band venue crawl that is Tenement Trail, and Armellodie Records 10th Birthday bash at the Glad Cafe – with Yip Man, Ewan Cruickshanks, Cuddly Shark and Galoshins – and you’ll probably, unable to decide, just end up having a night in instead.
And in Aberdeen, The View return to civilisation after their jaunt round the highlands and islands, with a show at The Garage.
