For the intrepid gig-goer, a recommendation for every night of the week is a must.
So if you must see a show this Monday night… then, it’s Lulu at Motherwell Concert hall.
Oh, hang on, you can also catch Teleman at King Tuts, doubtless previewing forthcoming album ‘Brilliant Sanity’.
In Edinburgh on Tuesday 6th, London indie-rock types Hunter & the Bear are at Electric Circus.
Wednesday 7th sees The View hit Inverness (not literally, we hope!) for a show at Ironworks. On Thursday 7th they’re at Aberdeen Garage. In Glasgow, psych-folkies Trembling Bells are at the Glad Cafe.
On Friday, the unfathomable attraction that is Mariachi-Moz comes to Glasgow’s SWG3 – yes, Mexrissey ‘s in town.
Things suddenly hot up at the weekend… Saturday 9th has, at Perth Green Room, Jamie & Shoony. In Glasgow, Slam make a rare appearance at the Sub Club, and Dunfermline foursome Foreignfox reach the big city for a show at Nice’n’Sleazy. Meanwhile, former Crass mainman Steve Ignorant brings some gentle anarchy to the Hug and Pint.
Out in the provinces, dub poet Linton Kwesi Johnson is part of James Yorkston’s ‘Tae Sup Wi’ a Fifer’ series at the Adam Smith in Kirkcaldy, while another set of veteran poets in the shape of The Rezillos are at Paisley’s Bungalow Bar.
In Edinburgh, Ded Rabbit are at Edinburgh Voodoo Rooms – and the band of brothers head north on Sunday for a gig at Inverness Hootennany
Sunday’s a quieter affair. But wind down the weekend with the sunny West Coast sounds (c. every reviewer, ever) of Nada Surf, at King Tut’s.
