The Week In Gigs starts with a bang, as Honeyblood launch new album ‘In Plain Sight’ at Summerhall in Edinburgh
Then, on Tuesday, Aussie art-rockers and Pere Ubu fans Methyl Ethel play King Tuts in Glasgow, while at Nice N Sleazy, Dundonian duo St Martiins punt new single ‘Want God’.
St Martiins then have their Dundee hometown launch show on Wednesday 6th at Beat Generator.
Declan Welsh & the Decadent West are out and about in Scotland – at The Tunnels in Aberdeen, while shhh! – Sacred Paws gently bring the noise (and new album ‘Run Round The Sun’) to Rosyth Library – part of the national Get Loud in Libraries scheme.
White Denim push their played-to-death-on-6music single ‘Small Talk’ at Edinburgh’s Liquid Room, and at Òran Mór in Glasgow, Flamin’ Groovies wull be, inevitably, shaking some action.
And you’d not know it, but we’re in summer now, so it’s festival season. Eden Festival kicks off four days in a field near Dumfries, with Chinese Man, This Is The Kit, Lau, Strange Blue Dreams, Flamingods and Auntie Flo among the band playing over the four days.
On Thursday, Dunfermline four-pieve The Shambolics are out and about, starting a jaunt around the country at Buskers in Dundee.
Declan Welsh & the Decadent West hit Hootananny in Inverness, and in Glasgow, Kaiser Chiefs are at the Barrowland, while bee-hived pop legend Mari Wilson is at Òran Mór.
The Shambolics continue their journey north, to Cafe Drummond in Aberdeen on Friday, while by way of contrast, electro-folk trio Lau are at the Music Hall.
Mop-topped popster Leo Sayer is in Edinburgh, at The Queen’s Hall, while Declan Welsh & the Decadent West are in Dundee, at Beat Generator.
Celtic (small ‘c’) rockers Tide Lines are at Stirling’s Albert Halls, and in Glasgow, Sacred Paws play St Luke’s.
Fingers crossed there are no sound problems, such as the Spice Girls singing live, as the reformed quartet are at Edinburgh’s Murrayfield Stadium, while rather sweeter-sounding will be Voicex‘s show at the Wee Red Bar (for the uninitiated, may contain small elements of Scars).
Tide Lines are at the unusual musical environs of the Tait Hall in Kelso, and The Shambolics play Edinburgh’s Mash House.
In Inverness, Noel Gallagher, Razorlight and Neon Waltz play what we assume is an open-air gig at Bught Park, while local emo quartet Dude Trips are at Aberdeen’s Tunnels.
The band formerly known as Sub Sub – Doves – play SWG3 Galvanizers Yard in Glasgow, and up e road a bit, Martin Stephenson is at East Kilbride’s Village Inn.
