Edinburgh alt.country act The Stantons play at the city’s Blind Poet (West Nicolson Street) on Saturday 14th, from 10pm-midnight. Entry free, and it’ll be the last chance to see the band for some months owing to an apparent imminent avalanche of babies for the band’s members and their partners.

Henry Rollins is at Glasgow’s Royal Concert Hall on Friday as well as Dunfermline’s Carnegie Hall on Saturday. Spoken word shows, mind.

Esperi play at Glasgow’s King Tut’s on Sunday
