This Week’s Gigs: 18th – 24th July


Not sure how much longer the gig guide will keep going for, but since I don’t post nearly enough other stuff to give up on one of my regular features it is still here for now. This week would have been a good time to give up, there is loads on and this took ages.

The week and next will likely be dominated by the Summer Nights gigs, but there is other stuff on too. You can read my pick of the Summer Nights gigs here.
Kochka. Glasgow Science Centre.
Two gigs by Kochka, at 1:30pm and again at 3:30pm.
I really like The Scottish Enlightenment, and Debbie Kate.
How Garbo Died, Katerwaul, Seas, Starry. The Tunnels, Aberdeen.
Aberdonian readers usually get a pretty bad deal out of the gig guide, I rarely know what is on up there. This one ought to be good though.
FOUND, Bermuda, Cancel the Astronauts, Verse Metrics, plus Ajimal in the bar. King Tut’s. (Tickets)
Tuesday and Wednesday are the two Summer Nights gigs I am looking forward to most. Lots of good stuff on show here, including birthday guests Verse Metrics who will also be launching their new single.
Wounded Knee. Mono.
If I wasn’t off to Tut’s I’d go here.
Yes please.
Must confess to not knowing a lot about The Computers, but the rest of that bill is worth going for anyway. UPDATE: The Computers have pulled out of the gig, which is now free entry.
Eska and guests. Stereo. (Tickets)
Eska’s first gig in about 100 years. Woo.
Plastic Animals, Black International, Supermarionation (solo), Loch Awe (solo). The Wee Red Bar.
Well, that’s a blooming excellent line up. This is a launch gig for Fresh Air Radio’s 2011 edition of The Inside Track compilation. Last year’s is still available here, with proceeds all going to charity.
Strawberry Ocean Sea, The Vespas, Ewan Butler. Captain’s Rest.
Dead Sea Souls, The Black Rats, John’s Weans, Queen Jane. King Tut’s. (Tickets)
Kid Canaveral. Avalanche instore.
Kid Canaveral celebrate the vinyl launch of their Shouting At Wildlife with an in store gig, kicking off at 6pm.
Be Like Pablo, Gordon McIntyre (ballboy), Ewan Cruikshanks, Felix Darcy. Nice N Sleazy.
Free entry, running from 4pm. Tempting.
Your last chance to see Enfant Bastard for a while.
Aaron Wright, Steve Heron. Nobles Bar, Edinburgh.
Pensioner, Mondegreen, Pinky Suavo. Captain’s Rest.
Pensioner are ace live, while my bandcrush on Mondegreen is legendary.
I like Miniature Dinosaurs and the little I’ve heard of Hector Bizerk, but the others I have no idea about.
