This Week’s Gigs: 18th – 24th October


We’re a day late again, as Sunday was given over to recovering from Oxjam Takeover, watching football and attending the incredibly special Unwinding Hours gig at the Oran Mor. If you missed it you missed out big time. Anyway, onwards with this week.

The Phantom Band. Fopp, Union St, Glasgow, 5pm.
The Phantom Band release their second album, The Wants, today and are doing an instore appearance in Fopp this afternoon to celebrate.
Marshall Chipped, Sugar Crisis. the Rio Cafe, Partick.
Glasgow Slow Club: Amber Wilson, Debbie Kate. Bloc, free entry.
Laid back acoustic loveliness.
Maple Leaves, The Hardy Boys, Dear Red. The Captain’s Rest. (Tickets)
Launch gig for the rather splendid new Maple Leaves EP.
Dosh, Cheer, theapplesofenergy. Nice n Sleazy.
I don’t know a thing about Don Bronco, but that selection of support bands is worth a look alone.
Barn Owl, The Lucky Oatcake, Go Lucky. 13th Note, £1 entry.
At £1 to get in it is hard to go wrong. Plus, the flyer for the gig has a rabbit smoking and is my new favourite gig flyer ever. Oh, the bands are pretty good too.
Oh bugger off Friday, you have too many good things on again.
Shambles Miller launches his new EP, Shambles Sails The Clockwork Sea, with the help of a few friends.
Emma Pollock, Julia and the Doogans. Paisley Arts Centre.
The List: 25 Years. The Arches. (Tickets)
The List celebrates its 25th birthday with one of the finest line ups in recent memory. For full details go here, but edited highlights include Errors, AVP3 co-stars Come On Gang! the always excellent RM Hubbert, Malcolm Middleton’s new Human Don’t Be Angry project and some spoken word stuff presented by the wonderful people of Cargo Publishing. Buy tickets from the link up above and use the discount code listemail to save a few quid.
Miss The Occupier. The Wise Monkey. Free entry.
Edinburgh Popfest actually kicks off on Friday and continues through to Sunday, but I’ll slip it in here where it won’t get lost. Visit the website for all the details, and I’ll have a bit more to say about it a little later in the week too.
Skies Fell play their debut Glasgow gig, and they aren’t messing about with it. Entry is free, but you need to apply for tickets here.
