They say Edinburgh’s gig scene is on the decline, but the fact is, all shows take on one, blink-and-you’ll-miss-it night. Friday 28th has punk veterans / hairdressers the UK Subs at the not-dead-yet Citrus Club, and Carla J Easton brings TeenCanteen to Sneaky Pete’s.

On Sunday, more 1970s goodness with Wreckless Eric at the Citrus Club in Edinburgh while Bloodlines are at Aberdeen Cafe Drummond.

More significantly on Sunday, a couple of differing festivals – hoping for summer, Stereofunk takes place at Strathclyde Park, with acts ranging from Mickey 9’s and Vladimir to TTF and N-Trance, while in Glasgow, Stag & Dagger – Fatherson, Gold Panda, Alexis Taylor, Kathryn Joseph and a load more.

Finally, Collective Endeavours, is, er, collective music and improvised dance helmed by Jer Reid plus Solène Weinachter, Joan Clevillé, Audrey Rogero, Luke Sutherland and Alex South. Also on the bill, a 3 piece version of Stevie Jones’ Sound of Yell, and solos from Seke Chimutengwende and Kai-Wen Chuang. They perform (in the truest sense of the word) at Govanhill Baths on Sunday April 30th.
