This Week’s Gigs 2nd – 8th August


Hello everyone, did you miss me while I was on holiday? Did you even notice I was gone?
Well I’m back now, so it should be business as usual again this week. If anyone pops up with a comment that it is hard to tell business as usual from a holiday I’ll be most upset with you.

Now, time for our regular gig guide. For some reason there’s a weird split this week, the first half of the week is all Glasgow, but by the end of the week the interesting stuff is all in Edinburgh.
Spangled Cabaret, featuring Bert Finkle & Markee De Saw, Hal Duncan, Jane Faye, Aidan McEoin, Scunner, Glasgow Glam Bangers, Creative Martyrs and more. The Rio Cafe, Partick. Free.
Calvin Johnson, Muscles of Joy. Hyndland Community Hall. £6 (Tickets)
The Ghosties. MacSorley’s. Free.
RM Hubbert, Finn Le Marinel. MacSorley’s.
Futuristic Retro Champions, Hidden Masters, Martin Creed, Kings of Macumba, Eugene Kelly. Mono. (Tickets)
Launch gig for the new FRC single May The Forth/Settle Down. They’ve assembled quite the line up for the launch, haven’t they?
Sugar Crisis, Park Circus, DeLarge. Classic Grand.
Dananananaykroyd, RM Hubbert. Nice N Sleazy.
You might want to get down early for this, I imagine it’ll be a busy one.
Elba Sessions Presents… Lovers Turn To Monsters, Stephen Cotter, Jennifer Andrew. The Liquid Ship. Free.
Haftor Medbøe Group. Voodoo Rooms, Edinburgh.
If I could afford it I’d be very tempted to do the wee road trip for this. Joining the group will be Anneke Kampman and Eva Malling.

Machar Granite. Wee Red Bar, Edinburgh.
