In Perth on Friday, and doubtless celebrating the release of a split single on Gerry Loves Records, local guys made good Poor Things are at Twa Tams. The band are also at Aberdeen O’Neills on Saturday 4th.

Another Perth lad, Dave Arcari, is at Dundee Buskers on Friday 3rd. Plus, Sat 4 Clerks (Lindsay St Dundee).
