As ever, the new normal means our gig guide is a virtual affair – well, virtually, but read on until you get as far as Sunday…

first up as ever is on Monday at 8pm, comes from Dave Arcari, who hosts his ‘Cookin’ Up the Blues‘ – his weekly livestreamed food and music series.

Meursault – Neil Pennycook – is a good bet to deliver you a live show online, especially considering he has new album ‘Vol 3‘ just out. However, a “train malfunction” last time seemed to knock out our timing by one day and 22 hours, so maybe best check out Meursault Facebook page during the week for a (possibly) Thursday or Saturday slot.

Mt. Doubt‘s frontman Leo Bargery continues to home livestream-he’s done the new ‘Doubtlands’ album launch, but we can forgive him if he sneaks in a couple of tunes from that on Thursday at 8pm.

Also on Friday, also at 8pm – Salt have a livestream show, coinciding with their new album ‘Cellophane’ and including a premiere of a documentary on the band by New York video director Dylan Mars Greenberg.

Last but definitely not least… an actual show! Lola in Slacks, The Bluebells (acoustic) plus Mark W. Georgsson will play a Last Night From Glasgow ‘Sit Down Session’ – as the name implies, you remain at your table (in your bubble’ of friends) for the duration, at a table of up to 6 from one household – so fill it and you’ll pay a tenner a head for the £60 (plus VAT) total. It’s at SWG3, listed as being from 6 – 10pm, and though there is rain cover, it’s essentially outdoors, so dress warm. Best read the full details for yourself!.

And this news just in – another gig! Raintown and Katee Kross will perform sets before a socially-distanced audience in what has been hailed as a “victory for the little guy” – on Sunday October 4th, the two acts will perform at Bishopbriggs Music School at 2pm, in what is apparently an already sold-out show, but worthy of a mention.

And also on Sunday, but in the comfort of your own home / his garage, Andrew Taylor out of Dropkick will present livestream #25 (!) – from 8pm.
