This Week’s Thing – Part 2

Standard

I ran out of time to cover the gigs and other goings on yesterday, so here it is today.

Art:
We Sink Ships have a new exhibit online. Launched yesterday Elements: Fire is available to view on their website from February 22nd until 11th April. Elements: Fire”, combines 12 photographs from Heidi Kuisma and Neil Milton to create 12 ethereal interpretations of fire. These images are accompanied by a new piece of music by Milton’s “beneath us, the waves” music project and by a poem by the duo’s friend, Rhys Baker – also of the band Wild Dogs In Winter.

Gigs:
Busy busy busy. Usual disclaimer – there’s loads more on than what I’m listing here.
Wednesday has the Scottish Alternative Music Awards Ceremony. It’s on at The Classic Grand, with an early kick off – doors are at 6.30. Remember and dress nice. As well as the awards there will be live sets from Make Sparks, This Familiar Smile, The Lafontaines & Bronto Skylift.
Lions.Chase.Tigers have a few gigs this week. On Thursday they are performing live for Stirling’s Air3 Radio, Friday they are in Inverness and on Saturday they play Aberdeen with There Will Be Fireworks.
Fresh from releasing their new single yesterday Errors head off on a UK tour this week, starting with Glasgow’s Grand Ole Opry on Thursday.
On Friday Glasgow Podcart are doing a live recording of their podcast. Playing live are Make Sparks (busy boys) and Conquering Animal Sound. It takes place at Creation Studios on Trongate at 3pm.
On Saturday there’s several gigs fighting for your attention. Zoobizaretta play the Oran Mor, while the Classic Grand has Oliver Stays (and Kochka, I think) supporting Doll And The Kicks. Elsewhere Pooch are taking over at Bloc. As if that wasn’t enough We’re Only Afraid of NYC are supporting Kong at The Captain’s Rest.
Bringing February to a close on Sunday we have Oliver Stays again, playing at Hurleys in Bathgate.
Sunday night in Glasgow is possibly my gig of the week, as Nice N Sleazy plays host to the triple bill of Vendor Defender, Young Aviators and Mickey 9’s.
