Paucity. That’s a good word. Means scarcity, and thus sums up this week’s gig list up pretty well.

In fact, so short of shows are we that Blink-182‘s set at the not-at-all-corporate GE Oil & Gas Arena in Aberdeen on Wednesday 12th is the first item of (any) interest.

And it’s really the weekend until things hot up anywhere near an acceptable level. East Kilbride singer-songwriter Declan Welsh plays
King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut in Glasgow on Friday 14th, while on the same night, Glasgow rockers Altered Sky are in Edinburgh, at Bannerman’s
They also venture to West Lothian the following night, for a show in Bathgate (probaly at the Dreadnought)/

On Sunday, gig of the week, at least for those of a certain age / disposition – “cartoon punks” The Dickies (they’re really much more than that) play Smash in Edinburgh… and it’s good to see that the recently renamed Citrus Club is keeping to its old ways as the go-to place for refugees from ’77.

If you’re in Glasgow on Sunday, Sunn O))) are at SWG3 while at King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut, it’s angular alt.rock fromVerse Metrics.
