Gig guide time, always exciting. No? Oh shush.
As usual, if there’s something you want to see included on the gig list just drop me a line. Telling me on Thursday or Friday the week before the gig usually works well.
Later you could always head along to this. Don’t know much (anything actually) about The Cheek, but support band Miniature Dinosaurs are pretty good fun. Tickets are £5 here, if you hurry.
Three bands I know nothing about, and The Red Show, who I quite dig. At the bargain price of free it’s worth risking if you need a gig on Tuesday.
Mr. Toad comes to Glasgow. Making the Edinburgh to Glasgow journey look irrelevant are Loch Lomond, over from Portland in that big America place. Joining them on the bill are two more of the Song, by Toad roster, including Meursault who I always find excellent live.
Crow Road are launching their new single, and are one of many bands this week to have got themselves a right good support band.
The Whisky Works launch their mini album, and rope in some fab friends to support. Funny story: I picked up the mini album a while back and thought that the new single, Electric, was ok, but terribly repetitive with no pay off. When I finally caught the band live it turned out my mp3 is wonky, and loops a couple of times during the song before cutting off before the end. That explained that then.
The PodcART crew spread their wings for a hip hop session. Admission is by invite only, visit the Podcart website for details on how to get in.
Yet another bill packed with bands Aye Tunes likes. Clearly there’s a conspiracy to seperate Jim from all his cash this week.
Mix Up Mayhem 2: Boygirlanimalcolour, Call Me Ishmael, Little Yellow Ukuleles and Gav Galloway. Creation Studios, Glasgow. Free entry, buy a food voucher and you can BYOB.
See? More evidence. Bands do a bit of their own stuff, a cover of the other bands, and a cover of something else.
For those of you of an Edinburgh persuassion you could skip along to this. It’s a launch gig for the new Night Noise Team single, which is a cracking tune. Also, Paul Vickers & The Leg are mental.
The latest Ducksoup night at The Flying Duck boasts a fine line-up. Doors open at 7.30, £5 in.
Dance your face off to this pair, but watch out for RBRBR’s ninja.
Right away in the shape of YAK and Trapped in Kansas you have two Aye Tunes endorsed bands. TiK made my Tips for 2010 list, while YAK made one of my favourite albums of last year (and snuck me some demos of album #2, which sound cracking). Add in a cool wee place and a host of other things going on during the day and this promises to be pretty awesome.
