On Wednesday 30th, Walt Disco play what must be the launch date for their debut album ‘Unlearning’, with a show at Saint Luke’s.

We’re very aware that the limited number of gigs have been Glasgow ones, but it’s by no means a token mention for an Edinburgh show (to be read in a Ronnie Corbett voice) – Miss Barbara Dickson, at the Usher Hall.

And, also, Felix And The Sunsets are at a new-to-us Reekie venue, Hare Of The Dog. Check local map for details.
