Good news for any Invernesians who made it to the end of Monday – the cheering sounds of Slow Readers Club are coming to an Ironworks near you.

On Tuesday, the jiggy art-rock of Foals will resonate throughout Edinburgh’s Liquid Room, while in Aberdeen, it’s a choice of Embrace at the Music Hall, or Slow Readers Club at Tunnels.

A New International bring their collaboration with Vanishing Point Theatre company, The Dark Carnival 2019 to Edinburgh’s Traverse Theatre – “a must see”, from Wednesday to Sunday, while in Glasgow, Embrace play the Barrowland, and at Òran Mór – well, on some sites it actually says “Frankie Miller”. The blues legend can no longer perform, so this is Fullhouse playing the songs that they recorded with him, back in the day.

On Thursday, as close as KT Tunstall is likely to get to a hometown show perhaps, she’s at the Alhambra in Dunfermline, while former PVC2 frontman (there was some other band he was in… no, it’s gone) Midge Ure plays Inverness Eden Court Theatre.

In Dundee, Slow Readers Club are at Beat Generator, while in Glasgow, at King Tut’s, some ‘hotly-tipped’ acts in Skinny Lister, Trapper Schoepp, plus The Wood Burning Savages. The Coral are at Òran Mór, and in Aberdeen The Stranglers play Beach Ballroom, Aberdeen, and Folamour are at The Tunnels.

Same city, but Friday night, KT Tunstall is at Music Hall, while in Glasgow Kyle Falconer out of The View is at the QMU.
At Stereo it’s ace dub dance act Dreadzone.
The Stranglers play Dunfermline’s Alhambra Theatre, and Slow Readers Club are at Edinburgh’s Liquid Room.

On Saturday 9th, in Aberdeen, industrial emo as recommend by HMV in the shape of Modern Error, with As It Is also on the Tunnels bill.
Dean Owens along with Yvonne Lyon plat Selkirk’s String Jam Club at the County Hotel, while in Glasgow, KT Tunstall is at the Barrowland and The Stranglers play the O2 Academy.
More nostalgia in the shape of Midge Ure at Motherwell Concert Hall or alternatively, goth pioneer and horror flick voiceover artist Lene Lovich is in Glasgow at G2.
Rather more up-and-coming, Edinburgh combo Caezium are at King Tut’s launching new single ‘Thrilla in Manila’, and Cloud of Starlings similarly have a release party for their new EP ‘New York’ at The Hug and Pint.

And so to Sunday, when we lock up our milk as Midge Ure is at Edinburgh’s Queen’s Hall, Irish singer-songwriter Jack Lukeman is at The Voodoo Rooms, and The Wailers play Glasgow’s Academy, while noisy English post-rockers Snapped Ankles, with shrubbery costumes freshly watered, are at Mono.
