A busy old week for live music, so best crack on… as Monday sees The Wave Pictures at Broadcast (unusually, it seems without Stanley Brinks).

On Tuesday 6th in Glasgow again, Rachel Sermanni‘s at Oran Mor while Wozniak play the Hug and Pint.

Wednesday sees “Scottish Dylan” and general folk legend Donovan at Dundee’s Gardyne Theatre.

Low are at the Art School on Thursday 8th (that’s Glasgow Art School, is there another one?)

On Friday, Roy’s Iron DNA plug ‘augmented reality’ album ‘Exposure’ with a show at Edinburgh’s Voodoo Rooms on Saturday 10th (the album has been released as a tabloid style newspaper with each page scannable with a smart-phone/tablet app).

Same night, in Aberdeen, The Creeping Ivies are at Moorings. Except, we’re told, it’s not called Moorings any more, but Krakatoa. Which, I think, is east of Tunnels.

Just along the road (not really), at Inverness Ironworks, English countrypop duo The Shires.

And in Paisley on Friday, The Spree Festival kicks off. Among the attractions, some interesting pairings including Idlewild with the RNSO, James Yorkston and Karine Polwart, Khartoum Heroes (ft King Creosote and Vic Galloway), a Scottish Album of the Year Showcase with Kathryn Joseph, plus Happy Meals and PAWS. Plus, Aidan Moffat and Bill Wells, which isn’t that intersting as such but bound to be good.

On Friday in Dumfries, at A’the Airts, Californian folk legend of the late 1960s, Julie Felix, She’s also at Selkirk’s String Jam Folk Club on Saturday.

In Edinburgh this weekend it’s The Pleasance Sessions. All in the Pleasance Courtyard, Paws are on Friday 9th, RM Hubbert on Saturday, and on Sunday, Withered Hand. Unrelated, Asian Dub Foundation are at the Usher Hall the same night, performing their live score to George Lucas’ visionary cult sci-fi classic THX 1138

Finally (phew!), Sunday has Leftfield at Aberdeen’s Music Hall.
