Snowgoose – the band who include Jim McCulloch of BMX Bandits and Teenage Fanclub’s Raymond McGinley – play in Glasgow, oh, tonight, Monday 12th. They’re also in London on Friday. Their debut album is out on ‘Harmony Springs’, real soon, hence the gig I suppose.
We’ve – just managed to find a gig for you to attend every night this week. Tuesday: head for Edinburgh, where Ugly Duckling will be kicking up a storm (quietly) at Sneaky Pete’s, Tuesday.
Then, on noisier territory, on Wednesday, Citizens are at the Electric Circus.
Forward to Thursday – Trapped Mice have the Glasgow leg of their Armellodie album launch ‘tour’ (they played Edinburgh last Saturday) with a show at the 13th Note.
To Dundee, where the band featuring the world’s oldest singing haridresser named after a Charlie Sheen TV character – yes, the UK Subs are at Beat Generator Live on Friday. (they’re also at Edinburgh’s Citrus Club on Saturday)
Always feel we have to mention the major cities at least once. And fortunately, The Proclaimers are in Aberdeen, at the AECC, on Saturday. And they’ll have Blueflint with them as well.
In fact, it’s all about Saturday from here on in.
Original 77 punks The Zips play in a new addition to the gig circuit – well, maybe not, but Hawick’s Station Bar, Hawick on Saturday 17th November, with
Spat, Splinter, and The Zenith Complex also on the bill.
A bit of a coup for ever-reliable promoter Cry Parrot – they have Swans, along with Sir Richard Bishop, at The Arches on Saturday 17th of November. Tickets (if there are any left) here
And in Coatbridge a fundraiser for Albion Rovers FC, on Saturday night. Kasule (named after one of their legendary players) headline, with Gav Prentice out of Over The Wall – his band named after a Rovers fanzine – in support, also on the Bill, Raymond Meade (formerly of the Ronelles, and son of the club’s current finance director) and Feet of Clay, who don’t appear to have any tenuous link to the team… anyway, at The Function Room in Coatbridge on Saturday 17th, the £5 in goes to finding the next Bernie Slaven. All in a good cause…
