Something of a 80s revival to kick off your week it seems, at least if you’re in Glasgow- a choice of Kim Wilde (Marty’s lass) Old Fruitmarket or one-time Factory Records bright young things Section 25 who are at the The Hug and Pint
On Tuesday, Trembling Bells punt their new (seventh) album Dungeness, in Edinburgh at Sneaky Pete’s, while just along the way (so hope they’re keeping the noise down), West Lothian post-rockers Flux Velociraptor are at Opium.
In Glasgow on Tuesday, Rolo Tomassi play Audio.
Wednesday 4th sees “controversial” “bad boy” “rockers” Cabbage visit The Tunnels in Aberdeen while in Glasgow, prepare to shed a tear as Dundee’s finest, Fat Goth, are at The Hug and Pint, for their final visit to the city as they wind up with a few more shows before they finally call it a day. Guests are Herbert Powell and Cutty’s Gym.
American punk / reggae / gospel combo Vatican Vampsare touring the UK to promote current album ‘Gehenna’ and are in Glasgow on April 4th at The 13th Note.
In Ayr, Glasgow rockers Megalomatic are at Harleys, while Cabbage make it to the capital for a show at The Mash House in Edinburgh
On Thursday, former Specials man Neville Staple and Band are at the O2 ABC 2 in Glasgow, while in Dunfermline, Megalomatic play Monty’s
In Glasgow, psych rockers Thee Hypnotics, who have plied their trade for the likes of SUbPop and Beggars, are at King Tut’s.
Pinact are in Aberdeen on Friday, at the Lemon Tree while Gerry Cinnamon plays a show at Ironworks in Inverness
Back in the central belt, a grebo double bill – Ned’s Atomic Dustbin and The Wonder Stuff are at O2 ABC Glasgow.
Also in Glasgow, atNice’n’Sleazy on Saturday 7th along Ritterskamp with Michael Angus – both acts contain former members of Peeps Into Fairyland. Or, step back further in time, to Dunfermline, where Chris Helme out of the Seahorses and Nigel Clark from Dodgy are at Monty’s.
In Edinburgh, an even more vintage, er, vintage, as one-legged prog flautist and salmon farmer Ian Anderson leads Jethro Tull into some sort of battle with elves (probably). They’re at the Usher Hall.
Smaller scale perhaps buit Little Mammoths – ex-Noah And The Whale bassist Matt Owens’ band, fact fans – are at Sneaky Pete’s, while in the People’s Republic of Leith, Spinning Coin are at the Dockers. Of a similar bent, Withered Hand takes part in the Stockbridge Sessions, at Cowan & Sons (which we assume is in Stockbridge).
And fine Dundonian rockers Dead Hope make the trek to Irvine for a gig at Harbour Arts Centre.
On Saturday, Mickey 9s play The Crofter in Fort William while Gerry Cinnamon moves across country, to Dundee for a gig at Tropicana & Vogue… the new name for Fat Sam’s, it seems?
In Glasgow, more revivalism, as Space at the O2 ABC 2, while at
Stereo, it’s Pinact.
Finally Sunday – Inverness welcomes Little Mammoths (well, those present at The Tooth and Claw will anyway) while in Dumfries, rockers
Tiberius stop off as part of an eight-date UK tour to plug single ‘Dissipate’ – they’re at at Troqueer Arms.
