Take a couple of days off and steel yourselves for a busier mid-late week, gigs-wise…

On Wednesday, Lizabett Russo heads out on some of the further-flung corners of the country. She’s at The CatStrand in Castle Douglas.

Speaking of far-flung, on Thursday, Carrbridge’s finest, Rachel Sermanni, makes the trip south(side) for a set at the Glad Café in Glasgow, while up that way (well, not that way), The Comet Is Coming are in Aberdeen, at The Lemon Tree, and over that way, Lizabett Russo is at The Rockfield Centre Community Hut, in Oban.

And the Mercury-nominated nu-jazz combo are in Glasgow the following night i.e. Friday 3rd, at Saint Luke’s.
By way of contrast, Dundee… and also a contrast, as veteran punks the Cockney Rejects are at Beat Generator.
And another punk (poetry) veteran, Craig Charles, is in Edinburgh, at La Belle Angèle, though, we suspect, spinning records rather than reciting verse.
In Bathgate on Friday, experimental psychedelic act The Kundalini Genie are at The Purple Orange, and in Perth, at Twa Tams, there’s Mickey 9s.
Lastly for Friday, Young Fathers play the first of two nights at the O2 Academy in Glasgow, Shame, with They Hate Change, are at SWG3 Galvanizers.

On Saturday 4th Penny Mob play Cafe Drummond in Aberdeen, Audiokicks are at Krakatoa, and Cockney Rejects have a show at The Tunnels.
In Glasgow it’s night #2 for Young Fathers at the Academy, Clem Burke and Glen Matlock revisit 1976 or so at Edinburgh Voodoo Rooms, and Self Esteem has a show at Queen’s Hall.

Lastly, a noisy way to end the week with Penny Mob at Broadcast, in Glasgow.
