A busy week out in the provinces and shires, even if we are several days late putting this together!
First up – Sounds in the Suburbs have Irish singer-songwriter Andy White on Wednesday 5th at Woodend, along with Jimmy Livingstone.
White returns the following night, Thursday, alongside Graham Skinner, Scott MacDonald and Paul Tasker in a Jackie Leven tribute night, all in aid of Core Trust who Jackie worked with in his later days.
Also in Glasgow on Thursday, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros (them off that advert… not that one, that one) are at the O2 ABC.
The Winter Tradition are all over the place this week, and Thursday sees them at King Tut’s… while in Aberdeen on Thursday you have the 1975 at the Music Hall
And down the coast, in Dundee at Beat Generator Live – Paws
And rather further south to Dumfries, where at the Venue, it’s Fatherson.
On Friday at Edinburgh’s Cabaret Voltaire, it’s Little Comets, while Andy White makes his way east for a show at Sneaky Pete’s. And a benefit show, Voice for Clutha, at the Electric Circus.
The Winter Tradition (them again) are at Strling Tolbooth on Friday, while Glasgow is well-served for shows – Paws are at Mono, Young Aviators play Broadcast, Starry Skies are at the Tron Theatre, and Stanley Odd appear at Pivo Pivo.
On Saturday it’s no less busy with Fanfarlo at Broadcast, and the Glasgow Pop! South Alldayer (part 1) at the Glad Cafe, with Yawns, The Just Joans and Spook School among those on the bill.
The Winter Tradition continue their journey around Scotland with a show at Cafe Drummond in Aberdeen, while Frank Turner plays Edinburgh’s Corn Exchange.
And veteran fingerstyle guitarist Preston Reid plays in Selkirk – not got a venue for you, but it can’t be that hard to figure out?
On Sunday, The Winter Tradition make it as far as Inverness Madhatters, while Pop!South is a half day-er this time – but still with MJ Hibbett, Adam out of Randolph’s Leap, A New International, The Stranger’s Almanac and The Bobby McGee’s on at the Glad Cafe from late afternoon onwards.
And in Glasgow it’s very busy for a Sunday (school night) – Foals are at the O2, Tav Falco’s Panther Burns play Broadscast, Robbie Lesuik is at the Slouch Bar, wherever that is, and The Grand Gestures and Man Without Machines have a double-header at the CCA.
