A busy weekend… a quieter week gig-wise, but it all kicks off on Wednesday really.
Turning Plates play what they describe as an ‘intimate’ show at Glasgow’s Old Hairdressers on Wed 29th May. That’s a previous show on video down the bottom…

Also on Wednesday, through in the east – waaaay through in the east – Blueflint are at Dalkeith Arts Centre

Michael Cassidy celebrates his inclusion on the T-break Tent bill with a show at Paisley’s Liberal Club on Friday 31st.

Same night, and I think this marks the start of the West End Festival in Glasgow – Electric Honey Records celebrate their 20th anniversary, with a showcase gig at Oran Mor, with current crop Young Aviators/Harry and The Hendersons/Wake The President and Albert Shakespeare.

Saturday 1st of June marks the return of the Pastels, with a gig at Glasgow’s CCA.

Even further off the gig map, Kilmarnock’s Dirty Weekender mini-festival is on, from Friday – Sunday. A whole load of acts as you’d imagine ver three days – including Esperanza, The Begbies and It Girl
