This week in gigs looks something like this… Monday 21st November, Edinburgh-based singer-songwriter Alex Cornish plays Edinburgh’s Speakeasy (at the Voodoo Rooms), with ‘We Don’t Know What You’re Thinking’ doubtless getting a punt.

On Tuesday 22nd, Yard Act‘s ascendancy up the gig ladder continues, with a headline show at Glasgow’s QMU while in Glasgow, Nina Nesbitt has a show at SWG3 Galvanizers.

Kapil Seshasayee has a new release ‘Laal’ and plugs it at Audio, in Glasgow, on Wednesday 23rd, while in Edinburgh, at Sneaky Pete’s, it’s TVAM.
Same night, same city, Nina Nesbitt plays The Liquid Room, while in Dundee, Dave Arcari launches his new album ‘Devil May Care’, at Beat Generator.

Contemporary folkies Breabach make sure their new album ‘F​à​s’ is gig-ready with a few shows in advance of their US tour next year, and are at Glenuig Hall, in Lochailort.
In Dunfermline, Happy Mondays play the Alhambra Theatre, Redolent are at The Biscuit Factory in Edinburgh, and The Proclaimers are at Motherwell Concert Hall.
In Glasgow, Ruts DC have a show at Saint Luke’s, The Little Kicks take their album launch tour for ‘People Need Love’ to Drygate Brewing Company, and at Nice n’ Sleazy, the excellent Dutch combo Lewsberg.

In Friday 25th in Glasgow, Wrest are at Saint Luke’s, while The Proclaimers are in Dunfermline – which seems to be celebrating its new-found city status with q fair share of shows – at the Alhambra Theatre. After all, same night same city, The Little Kicks play P.J. Molloy’s.
In Edinburgh, Ruts DC are at The Liquid Room, and The Sweet (or what’s left of them) are at the Queens Hall.

On Friday 25th, Fraserburgh foursome Dude Trips have a hometown show, just about, at Aberdeen’s Cafe Drummond, while former Love and Money mainman James Grant is in Dumfries, at The Venue.
In Dundee, Thurso-born indie combo Forgetting The Future play Church Dundee – as do several acts over the next three days. It’s
Book Yer Ane Fest XV, running from Friday – Sunday, at Conroy’s Basement / Rad Apples. Run by Make-That-A-Take Records label. Can find no precise info on who’s actually playing, but go along, it’s sure to be great.

Failing that, The Proclaimers are at Dundee’s Caird Hall the following night, while The Little Kicks are at The Hunter S Thompson, neither of which will be part of BYAF, we assume.
Nor will Horse Mcdonald, instead playing Perth Concert Hall, while Dundee metallers Catalysis, along with local rockers Aklias, are in Inverness, at The Tooth and Claw.
In Edinburgh, Katherine Aly plays Summerhall, Mungo’s Hi Fi, with guest Solo Banton, are at La Belle Angèle.
In Glasgow, the first of two Happy Mondays shows at the Barrowland, with guests Cast, while Dean Owens is at everyone’s favourite new venue, Maryhill Community Central Hall, and Breabach play Lochaline Village Hall – near Oban, as far as we can tell.

Finally, to Sunday, when Storm the Palace launch their new album ‘La Bête Blanche’ at the
Wee Red Bar, while in Glasgow, what looks like something of a mini-festival, with
Dutch Wine, The Wife Guys of Reddit, King Wine, Wine Moms, Dinosaur 94, flinch., Codist, and Everyday Pharaohs somehow squeezing into The Hug and Pint.
