This Week’s Gigs: 29th August – 4th September

Standard

Looking for something to do this week? Here’s the highlights.

Wednesday:
Redwings, Without Aeroplanes, Thula Bora. Bloc. Free entry.
Three good bands and the most agreeable price of free.
Cults, Kill the Waves. Nice N Sleazy.
Thursday:
Alan Bissett: Pack Men book launch. Waterstones, Sauchiehall St.
Launch event for Alan Bissett’s latest novel, Pack Men. I’ve not read it yet, but on the quality of Alan’s previous work I’m pretty sure it’ll be good. The launch event kicks off at 6:30pm, entry is free.
Friday:
The Moth & The Mirror, Amber Wilson, Blood Blood. Captain’s Rest.
Launch gig for the fab new single from the Moth & The Mirror, which you can download for free here.
A good thing/bad thing gig. The good thing is that the gig launches The Whisky Works’ new EP. The bad thing is that it will also be the band’s final gig. Yay/boo as appropriate.
Pronto Mama. The Common Rooms.
Pronto Mama will be supporting themselves, with a half hour acoustic slot followed by their regular set.
Saturday:
Also taking place on Sunday. For full details and running order see Facebook.
Sunday:
French Wives emerge blinking from the studio for an intimate gig, before going back into it again to finish off work on their debut album. New songs should be on show, and the support is pretty decent. Here’s your gig of the week then. Might want to get along early though, The 13th Note is wee and it is first come first served. On second thoughts, can you all turn up late please? I want to make sure I can get in.
