Things go strangely quiet until Thursday, when Dave Arcari – a fixture in this gig guide a couple of years back due to his regular inline sets – step into the real world for a gig at The Tooth and Claw in Inverness – part of a tour plugging his new album ‘Devil May Care’.
Also on Thursday, Wet Leg are at SWG3 in Glasgow, and Fontaines D.C. play the first of a two-nighter at the O2 Academy.
