It’s something of a sleepy-looking gig guide this week, but as we stumble into 2019, old favourite and one-time Felson Dean Owens has a show at Leith Folk Club (which is almost in Edinburgh) on Tuesday.
Similarly, hip-pop funk rockers Dopesickfly are at King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut – doubtless part of the venue’s New Year’s Revolution series of shows.
On Wednesday, Welsh singer-songwriter and occasional Manics collaborator Cate Le Bon plays St Luke’s in Glasgow,
Thursday sees The Broken Ravens at Bannermans while in Dundee, The Howl & The Hum have a show at Clarks on Lindsay Street.
In Glasgow, punk legends The Skids are at the Queen Margaret Union with Big Country also on the bill.
Lewis combo The Broken Ravens hit Inverness on Friday for a show at Hootananny, while in Glasgow – at the QMU again – From The Jam, which isn’t actually a tribute act, but featuring at least one original member. No, not that one, though weirdly on the same night and just up the road, The Style Councillors are at Òran Mór.
On Friday, Dundee’s hot hopes, ST.MARTiiNS, play King Tut’s in Glasgow, while goth legends Gene Loves Jezebel are at Ivory Blacks.
From The Jam are at Aberdeen’s Lemon Tree on Saturday, while in Dunfermline, She Burns Red are at Monty’s.
Finally for this week, From The Jam are at Edinburgh’s Liquid Room on Sunday while the excellent Static Union are that night’s King Tut’s attraction. Also on the bill are Plastic Poetry, NEONWAVES and Craig White, as well as (gasp!) is this music? DJs, whatever that means.
