It’s holiday season but that doesn’t mean that there’s no live music to catch. Just not much.

However, straight off, on Monday July 3rd, world folk supergroup Yorkston Thorne Khan are at The Hug and Pint in Glasgow.

Tuesday is the big outdoor gig for this week – Green Day‘s open-air show at Bellahouston Park – with Rancid, Slaves and The Skids.

For anyone preferring a more sedate evening, soul legend Gladys Knight is at Glasgow’s Royal Concert Hall

Wednesday sees garage rock veterans The Fleshtones in what can only be called ‘intimate’ surroundings of Bannerman’s in Edinburgh

Also On Wednesday, at Leith Depot, a mighty triple-header. Plastic Animals, Le Thug, and Jockrock faves DTHPDL. Hey, they’re all Jockrock faves…

In Glasgow on the same night, Jesse Malin plays King Tut’s.

Not that many shows of note this weekend, but on Friday Miss The Occupier play their first show in a while, at Glasgow’s Nice n’ Sleazy’s

And Ironworks in Inverness on Saturday, the rapping delights of The Sugarhill Gang.
