Following a flurry of cancellations over the weekend, the programme of live music gets back to normal, with Loudon Wainwright III appearing at Glasgow Royal Concert Hall on Monday 12th September.
Wednesday night sees post-rockers Helicon accompany The Janitors for a set at Nice n’ Sleazy in Glasgow.
Punk veterans The Toy Dolls seem to be still on the go 40-odd years since their hit single ‘Nellie The Elephant’, playing Edinburgh’s La Belle Angèle on Thursday 15th, while in Glasgow, Japanese post-rock combo Mono are at Saint Luke’s.
Also in town is Adam Ant, at the Royal Concert Hall, Glasgow, while in Inverness, local(ish) lads made good, Tide Lines.
They then, surprisingly perhaps (tell you why in a moment) make their way north on Friday, playing at Gairloch Community Hall, in Torridon.
Over and down a bit, Spare Snare have a hometown show, where they’ll be playing a set of all-new material slated for recording with Steve Albini for their forthcoming 14th album. That’s at the The Hunter S Thompson, in Dundee.
Same night, up the coast, Adam Ant is at Aberdeen Music Hall, and across town, Baby Strange play The Tunnels, and down the coast, BBC 6Music favourite Dana Gavanski is at The Voodoo Rooms in Edinburgh.
Saturday 17th: Tide Lines will presumably have left Wester Ross nice and early, as they’re at Easterbrook Hall in Dumfries.
Closer to (their) home, Andrew Wasylyk has a show at Aberdeen’s Lemon Tree, and in Glasgow, the “hotly-tipped” deadletter are at The Flying Duck.
And Mungo’s Hi Fi, plus Gardna, play Glasgow University Union (GUU).
Finally, Sunday 18th sees quite the clash of shows in Glasgow –Superorganism are at the SWG3 Warehouse, while Godspeed You! Black Emperor play the Barrowland.
