The party’s over, and Edinburgh packs up its tents and gazebos following a nice run of socially-distanced outdoor shows – well, pretty much.

So it’s all indoors for rapper Slowthai on Tuesday 31st August, at
Glasgow Garage or indeed, Canadian art and multimedia (!) combo Crack Cloud, at Mono, same city, same night.

Into September, and on Wednesday 1st, Highland rockers Tide Lines play Beach Ballroom, Aberdeen in Aberdeen, while Crack Cloud are at Edinburgh’s Bongo Club.

The weekend kick off on Friday, and Scotland’s longest-running club, Dreadnought Rock in Bathgate, reopens, with a set from local hard rock quartet She Burns Red.

In Dunfermline, at what might be the oldest building hosting music this week, Arab Strap are at Dunfermline’s Glen Pavilion,, and in Edinburgh, The Fratellis play La Belle Angele. Tide Lines are at Strathpeffer Pavilion, and Kyle Falconer out of The View is in Kilmarnock along with Clint Boon, who’s doing a DJ set.

But wait – it looks like summer’s not over yet – Glasvegas, The Sherlocks, Nova, Jonny Skinner, Sopohie de Rose and Kyle Falconer are among the acts at Dalkeith Country Park, for the We’re On Our Way Out East festival, on Friday from 4pm.

And, in Falkirk’s Callendar Park, on Friday 3rd and Saturday 4th, Vibration FestivalFratellis, Cast, Reef, Man of Moon, Pigeon Detectives, Shambolics, and Mickey 9s among closeon 50 acts playing over the weekend.

And as if that wasn’t enough, Riverside Festival takes place at, yes, Glasgow’s Riverside (you know, at the museum). Jamie XX, Floating Points, and Disclosure all on the bill over the space of three days from Friday – Sunday (you can tell it’s a holiday weekend).

It’s back indoor for another festival on Saturday 4th – Krakatoa hosts its Punk Fest 2021 with Malfunction, Numbskulls, TOXIK EPHEX, Skizofrenik, Eaten By Crows, Ugly Clinic, and Masenko.

And finally, it should be nice and cosy in Glasgow’s Broadcast, for the visit of Joe Oxley aka TVAM.
