On Monday March 7th Biffy Clyro gear up for a massive, stadium-sized tour with what for them passes for an ‘intimate’ show, at Dundee’s Fat Sams.
In Edinburgh, Villagers play The Queen’s Hall, Edinburgh, and singer-songwriter Roxanne de Bastion is in Glasgow, at The Hug and Pint.
On Tuesday, Detroit electro duo Adult. play Slay, in Glasgow, folk legend Peggy Seeger with Calum MacColl is at Edinburgh’s The Voodoo Rooms, Edinburgh, and just down the road, Roxanne de Bastion plays Sneaky Pete’s.
Wednesday sees some more 70s legends fly in, as Gong are at Oran Mor, in Glasgow, while The Cribs play SWG3. Texan veterans Blue October are at The Garage, with Daytime TV (the band formerly known as Hunter and the Bear), while Peggy Seeger is at the Harbour Arts Centre in Irvine
On Thursday 10th March Dean Owens has a hometown show, at The Voodoo Rooms in Edinburgh, while Fat Sams is again the place to be in Dundee for the big names – this time, for a set from Chvrches.
Speaking of big-names in Dundee, Kyle Falconer out of The View is at La Belle Angele, in Edinburgh (yes, that was confusing, apologies). More straightforward is Wrest‘s return to The Lothians, the Edinburgh act playing the Howden Park Centre in Livingston.
Friday 11th sees Blue Rose Code visit Perth Theatre, and Tide Lines are themselves close to their Highland homes (well, for half the band), with a show at the Nevis Centre, in Fort William.
Parliamo – now, they’re from Perth, we seem to have gone down a road of geolocating everyone – are in Glasgow, at Saint Luke’s, and former Grim Northern Social and Apollo 440 man Ewan MacFarlane‘s at the Listening Room (part of the Georgian Hotel) in Coatbridge.
And in Aberdeen, Mark Morriss, once of the Bluetones, hits Furryboots City for a show at Aberdeen’s Cafe Drummond.
On Saturday 12th Mach, Wrest continue to bring their noise to the far-flung communities, with a set at The Venue in Dumfries, while Tiderays – from Dumfries, funnily enough – are at Dunfermline’s P.J. Molloy’s, and Chvrches have another small(ish) show, by their standards, at SWG3, in Glasgow.
Also in Glasgow, Petty Cassettes play the 13th Note, Mark Morriss has a very intimate set at Sneaky Pete’s in Edinburgh.
Tom McGuire & the Brassholes launch new single ‘D.R.E.A.D.’ at Glasgow’s Old Fruitmarket, and Tide Lines are at the O2 Academy, while in Aberdeen, Vansleep play Tunnels.
Finally, to a quiet Sunday night, but a notable show as Dean Owens has a show on Glasgow’s southside, at The Glad Cafe.
