Right, five minuites till I leave the house and head to see The Unwinding Hours at King Tut’s in Glasgow. You know, one half of Aereogramme. Their new album is magnificent by the way, there’s a taste down the bottom of the page. You can go too, but apparenmtly it’s likely to sell out, so get your skates on. Olympic Swimmers are also on the bill.
That’s part of King Tut’s Summer Nights series, which also sees Randolph’s Leap at the same venue on Wednesday 25th.
In Edinburgh, on Tuesday, string-driven pop thing Letters are at the Electric Circus.
“Shock rockers” (copyright The Tube, 1978) are at the Carnegie Hall in Dunfermline, roughly 30 years after Glasgow’s city fathers (or was it The Record?) tried to ban their Apollo show.
Friday sees Dundonian purveyors of sunny pop The Hazey Janes head north, to Inverness to be precise, for a show at Mad Hatters.
And then to Twa Tams in Perth the following night.
And finally, on Sunday (29th) 70s avant-garde sax mangler Ted Milton brings Blurt to Edinburgh’s Voodoo Rooms.
