This Week’s Gigs 2nd – 8th August

Standard

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.
Monday:
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.
Tuesday:
Calvin Johnson, Muscles of Joy. Hyndland Community Hall. £6 (Tickets)
The Ghosties. MacSorley’s. Free.
Wednesday:
RM Hubbert, Finn Le Marinel. MacSorley’s.
Thursday:
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.
Friday:
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.

Sunday:
Machar Granite. Wee Red Bar, Edinburgh.
