A busy week around the country gig-wise, so best press on…

Always nice to see live music in Glen Urquhart Public Hall, where on Tuesday 17th folky foursome the Poozies visit.
On the same night in Edinburgh, former Hold Steady bloke Franz Nicolay continues his tour, with a show ta the Banshee Labrynth.
Tuesday’s SSt Patrick’s night, and keeping up a tradition that goes back to the 5th Century, Stiff Little Fingers are at the Glasgow Barrowland.

You might remember Midge Ure as a member of punks PVC2, oddball teenpop combo Slik, or even as one of the Rich Kids, and he’ll be playing hits from all three of these acts (I should imagine) this week. He’s at Inverness Ironworks on Tuesday, before continuing his fecking tour-ette (see what we did there?) at Adam Smith Theatre in Kirkcaldy on Thursday, Aberdeen Lemon Tree on Friday and Hamilton Town House on Saturday night.

Back to Thursday 19th though, as Viking Moses is at Aberdeen’s Tunnels – an Interesting Music show, with Phil out of PAWS and Craig John Davidson also on the bill.
Then we’re at the weekend, as Viking (as his pals know him) is at Henry’s Cellar in Edinburgh on Friday. The Unthanks are at the Queen’s Hall, Alabama 3 at Studio 24. Meanwhile in Glasgow, Joan Armatrading is at the Royal Concert Hall, Tijuana Bibles play Broadcast, and Wilko Johnston is at the O2 ABC.

On Saturday Randolph’s Leap are at the CCA while Morrissey should be at Mono, or The 78, the Note, or even Usha’s. No, it’s the Hydro. Burgers permitting.

Last of all, North Atlantic Oscillation launch new EP, ‘Glare’, at Broadcast on Sunday, and The LaFontaines are at Perth Green Room.
