OK, it’s not a gig in any sense of the word, but we have to take our live events where we can. Mogwai are in conversation with Ian Rankin on Monday night, livestream-stylee, from Rough Trade in that London. Via Zoom, it’s limited capacity, and your ticket gets you a copy of the album as well. Sign up here, it starts at 7pm.

Following his recent Tales From The Road series, Dave Arcari has a full concert livestream on Monday 22nd – plus aftershow chat & virtual drinks (not sure if the latter is included in the fee…).

Bit of a gap midweek after that initial flurry, but the weekend starts on
Thursday, Sounds in the Suburbs present their 10th Refuweegee virtual fundraising gig at 8pm GMT. Via Zoom, the all-star line-up includes music by Lilly Hiatt, Darden Smith, Andy White, Gillian Tuite and Findlay Napier.
There is no ‘ticket price’ to join the gig, instead you are encouraged to make a donation of whatever you can to Refuweegee.

Also on Thursday, Adam Stafford plays a set for Paisley Book Festival – the musical finale to an evening of readings from a set of top authors.

Then, on Friday, at 7.30pm, when Randolph’s Leap – well, mainman Adam Ross – will be performing tracks from the band’s new album ‘Spirit Level’.

On Saturday 27th, a similar setup as Nightshift play a streamed concert on Saturday, February 27th as the Glasgow quartet – comprising various members of Spinning Coin, 2 Ply and Robert Sotelo – celebrate the release of new album ‘Zöe’, form 8pm.

And a chance to catch up on a gig you maybe missed, as the most recent edition of James Yorkston’s ‘Tae Sup Wi’ A Fifer‘ (online version) can be viewed now… this is the fourth in the web-based series ordinarily at Kirkcaldy’s Adam Smith Theatre. This time out it’s piper Brìghde Chaimbelu, Shhe aka (Panda) Su Shaw, Lost Map’s Firestations, plus James Yorkston & The Second Hand Orchestra, who have just released album ‘The Wide Wide River.
