This Week’s Gigs: 25th – 31st October


Oh look, I’m back on time with a Sunday gig guide. Just as well as there’s quite a lot happing on the blog tomorrow. Really this time, there’ll be posts and stuff.

On with the gigs.
Sugar Crisis, Her Royal Higness. Pivo Pivo. Free entry.
Oxjam: Fiona Soe Paing. the Arts Centre, Aberdeen. Tickets
Glasgow Slow Club: Barn Owl, The Japanese War Effort. Bloc. Free entry.
45 A-Side Records are hijacking the Slow Club again this week to further promotion of the recently released Glad Cafe Fundraiser album with two of the bands involved playing tonight. Well, one band playing and a member pulling double duty. We really like The Japanese War Effort round here, and there’s a half written review from Thursday Barn Owl gig sat here waiting for me to finish it, but we rather like them too.
Launch gig for A Band Called Quinn’s rather gorgeous new album The Beggar’s Opera. If you hurry you can pick up a copy of the album and a ticket for this gig for only a tenner. It’ll be money well spent and the supports for the gig are pretty tasty too.
Futuristic Retro Champions recently announced they’ll be breaking up soon, so catch them while you can. You can get tickets a wee bit cheaper direct from them here.
Pin Up Frights. The Flying Duck.
Previewed this one already, go look here to read a bit more and listen to songs by the bands playing on the night, PopUp, The Social Services and Endor.
Oxjam & Favourite Son Present… The Classic Grand.
Previewed this one too, just the other day. The Clyde, Kochka, Nevada Base and The Winter Tradition are on the bill, and there should be some raffle prizes on the go. Read the full preview here.
Detour Hallowe’en Party. Bloc. Free Entry.
From 9pm till 3am the Detour crew will be up to their usual mischief and carnage in Bloc.
Full details and tickets at the link above. The party takes place in Stereo, and across the road at The Old Hairdresser from 2pm until the wee hours of Monday morning. The fancy dress theme is Wild West 3010: Space Cowboys and Aliens, so why not dress up like a chestburster in chaps and a hat or something.
Oxjam: Roktoberfest. The Classic Grand. Tickets
