Ooh look, the sun is out. Instead I’m sat inside looking up gigs for you lot. You never say thanks, you never call, you never write. Not even a card in the post. Bunch of buggers.
Anyway, assuming you haven’t spent all your money on vinyl during Record Store Day yesterday, there’s a lot on this week worth going to. Also, don’t forget you are allowed to spend all your money in records shops every day, so don’t just do it the once then forget about them till next April.
Launch gig for the new Le Reno Amps album, Appetite. With that line up a good night is all but guaranteed.
Oh Friday, once again you are ripping the piss.
YAK launch their brilliant second album with a free gig in the Catty. Oh God, i have to go to the Cathouse. I also need to run away early for the next gig…
So many Animal Calls release their first proper EP on Monday, with a launch gig on Friday. Good.
The Ghosties. Classic Grand.
Bad McNulty. Maggie Mays.
Kitty the Lion. Electric Circus, Edinburgh
Sebastian Dangerfield, We See Lights, Adam Thompson (We Were Promised Jetpacks). Wee Red Bar, Edinburgh.
In case Edinburgh felt left out when it comes to launch gigs, here’s one for the rather fab Sebastian Dangerfield EP.
The Bad Books. Nobles Bar.
There will be other bands playing, but I don’t know who. Also, no link for The Bad Books as yet. This is their first gig, and one of the people in the band is the superbly awesome Mikey Morrison, formerly of Come on Gang!
You might think you’d get a break over the Easter weekend especially after that lengthly list of gigs on Friday. You’d be wrong.
Another Ides of Toad gig, and once again Matthew has a fine line-up.

Outstanding. St Deluxe have a new single out on 10″ while Bronto will also be releasing their new 7″ on the night too. Hello to me buying records I can’t actually play then.
Fiction Faction. 13th Note.
Captain’s Rest Birthday.
2nd day of the birthday weekend, with Kid Canaveral, Mitchell Museum (y’know it is almost a year since Peenko and I put those two on in this venue, doesn’t time fly?), How To Swim, Heart Beats, theapplesofenergy, Dear Mountaineer.
This gig is being put together to raise funds and awareness for the Sexual Assault Victims Initiative, which you can find out more about at the link above.
