A word about our listings

A guide for Customers

These days artists and bands tend to book their tours months in advance. In order to give you the best notice of up and coming shows we list events once they have been confirmed by the band or their management.

The downside of this is that dates can change due to unforeseen circumstances, sometimes at very short notice. We do our best to ensure that this site is kept as up to date as is possible, with updates happening at least once a week.

Therefore to avoid disappointment we recommend that you check these listing prior to setting out for your show especially if you are travelling any distance.

Diesel Park West are for many people the most enigmatic band from the late eighties still performing today. Back in those Thatcherite days the psychedelic guitar ground they occupied was often dismissed as a mere throwback to the mid-sixties with only an enlightened minority realising its real musical significance. The beating heart of rock ‘n’ roll is now far more aware of the Diesels' sound and maybe that’s why any live performance by the band is considered an event worth seeing. Drawing upon eight albums worth of material and the hippest cover versions imaginable, Diesel Park West continue to prove beyond a doubt that they really are the torchbearers for an entire genre.

There is anxiety here, and grief, and doubt, but Kathryn Williams and Dan Willson remind you to find the good stuff and hold it to your heart. Stick this in your CD player and allow the summer to flow through you.” Tradfolk

Rock veteran Otway dubbed himself "rock'n'roll's greatest failure" after many unsuccessful attempts to produce a second hit single to follow his 1977 classic (Cor Baby, That's) Really Free with Wild Willy Barrett.

However, a mere quarter century later, he was back on Top of The Pops with the wonderful disco pastiche, ‘Bunsen Burner’ and back in the charts as a birthday present from his adoring and patient fans.

And, more recently, his "Beware Of The Flowers Cause I'm Sure They're Going To Get You Yeah" voted the seventh greatest lyric of all time in a BBC poll.

As ever, Otway attacks his favourite set list with gusto, leaving plenty of room for anarchy, fun and acrobatics that are his trademark.

Doors 7:30pm
From his early days guitar slinging in Jason & the Scorchers to more than a decade with Dan Baird & Homemade Sin and a parallel solo career that has produced five ace albums so far as well as a best of collection, Warner E. Hodges is a man who knows how to rock and his live shows are famous for their excitement, intensity and power. He was a wild child who fused rock ’n’ roll aggression with country roots and getting on for forty years later he still is and he’s doing it as well as ever. As he says himself, Americana on a stool it ain’t, but some of the best rock ’n’ roll you’ll see it surely is. With Ben Marsden (guitar), Jason Knight (bass) and Shane Dixon (drums), Warner has a band capable of running Black Sabbath into Merle Haggard and back out into AC/DC.

Conny Bloom is probably best known for fronting funky Swedish rock’n’rollers the Electric Boys and his time in Hanoi Rocks. A mean guitar slinger with charisma to burn, he’s also released four solo albums, with the most recent, ‘Game! Set! Bloom!’ sounding as if “the Doors had camped out in the Swedish countryside” (Roppongirocks). Fusing psychedelia, funk, 60s pop and full on rock to amazing effect and adding a healthy dose of humour, Bloom’s music defies easy categorisation, but all you need to know is that a Conny Bloom show rocks, and rocks hard.

Doors 7:30pm
KARKARA means “Punks / Slackers” in Tunisian.

Slackers because we all feel out of place in this society that gives us the feeling of going 240 km/h into a wall and we don’t want to go there. So if we’re going to crash into that wall it better off be a wall of amps, and if we can get high in the process it’s even better.

Getting high because KARKARA is an upbeat and high tempo psychedelic rock band with riffs like King Gizzard, melodies like Erkin Koray and a tempo like Squid. A deluge of uninterrupted psychedelism both trippy and hypnotic that transports you to a post-apocalyptic setting on the verge of implosion. Screaming amps, supercharged drums and deep voices mixing both sweet melancholy and desperate rage.

On stage, KARKARA manages to transcribe a hypnotic fury and reveals to the public a sound, an identity and an energy that grabs you in the guts instantly.

“wah wah” lovers, repetitive “boom boom kraut” enveloped in exotic sounds from the other side of the sea, trance is at the center of the project.

plus Me and Thee
Doors 7:30pm
BMX Bandits have been making ultra-romantic pop for 37 years. Let's celebrate.

A leading light of the short-lived C-86/anorak movement of the mid-'80s, the BMX Bandits stood at the epicenter of the Scottish pop music scene for over a decade; however, despite helping launch the careers of talents ranging from Teenage Fanclub and Eugenius to the Soup Dragons and Superstar , they never grew beyond the confines of a fervent cult following, though they never gave up making sweet, idiosyncratic pop music.
~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi

“If I could be in any other band, it would be BMX Bandits”,
Kurt Cobain.

“Britain’s ultimate cult group”, The Guardian.

“Gentle genius”,
Q magazine.

BMX Bandits were formed in the ex-industrial town of Bellshill by songwriter and lead vocalist Duglas T Stewart out of the ashes of The Pretty Flowers, a group that featured Stewart alongside Frances McKee (The Vaselines), Sean Dickson (The Soup Dragons) and Norman Blake (Teenage Fanclub).

BMX Bandits' songs mix melodic qualities and humour with, at times, raw and heartbreaking pathos. Duglas describes their songs as being his world put to music.

Starting with the exuberant 'E102' in 1986 BMX Bandits released a series of singles on Stephen Pastel's 53rd & 3rd label, where they were label mates with The Vaselines and Beat Happening.

Later they joined Creation Records, home of Teenage Fanclub, My Bloody Valentine, Primal Scream and many others.

Stewart split with his long term musical partner Francis Macdonald in 2005 but 2006 saw a new wave of concert activity and the release of My Chain. Stewart's writing on the album was compared to Brian Wilson, Michel Legend, Ennio Morricone and even Alan Bennett.

In 2011 the critically acclaimed documentary
Serious Drugs was released, the story of Duglas’ adventures in music and struggles with mental health.

The film was selected by Sight and Sound magazine as one of their films of the year.

In 2023 BMX Bandits released their soundtrack album for the independent feature film Dreaded Light. Partially recorded during lockdown the soundtrack was the first collaboration between Stewart and his current main collaborator, multi instrumentalist Andrew Pattie (C. Duncan, Isobel Campbell, The Amazing Snakeheads).

The album was one of WFMU’s soundtracks of 2023.

In April 2024 BMX Bandits are releasing their 12th studio album Dreamers on the Run on Tapete Records.

The album was originally

Now a decade on Dreamers on the Run will be released, featuring unfinished songs from 2014, now completed, and new material by Stewart and Pattie. The album is BMX Bandits most musically ambitious so far, expansive and intimate.

Although the line-up of the group continues to be ever changing the heart and soul of the Bandits remain the same, an extended musical family led by the inimitable Duglas T Stewart.

ME AND THEE - School of Blackbelts (Independent)
favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite
by Ancient Champion
Sometimes some bands just have it, you know it as soon as you hear it but you don't know whether they know it too. So, Me and Thee embodies somehow, you can hear on School of Blackbelts, the essence of what made all of your greats great. They could be an Outsideleft archetype, a bronze boulder on our lawn out front of our new office. Think of Pavement in the garage still, their slacker greatness abides, think of Vic Goddard, think of someone else you like that much. Me and Thee are going to be generationally huge of course, like, imagine a provincial Libertines, where provincial is absolutely not a derogatory term. They're young, from Wolverhampton-ish. They're the kind of bad boys (and girls) Joan Didion would've liked in her pomp, not least of all because Me and Thee's lyrics sound like they were torn from the hands of Richard Linklater's script supervisor and thrown in the air... Landing on the right side of limpid, languid genius. They have something to say about suburban Britain and are articulate about it. School of Blackbelts is astonishingly good. (Outside Left)

R.E.M. are one of the world’s most enigmatic bands. With a string of peerless albums; one eye on the underground and one eye on the soaring chorus; we will never see their like again. From “The One I Love” through to “The End of the World” and more besides.
Stipe bring you all the top songs from these icons including “Losing My Religion”, and “Man on the Moon” and with all the atmosphere, attitude, emotion, and energy you’d expect. Stipe will provide the same cagey mix of attitude, poetry and idiosyncratic sound built around jangling guitars and hazy vocals of frontman Michael Stipe.
Whether it’s playing major festivals or appearing on the One Show, performing for Michael Stipe himself, Stipe are the definitive R.E.M. tribute – a complete band, and encyclopaedic knowledge of the back catalogue. They bring R.E.M. to life on stage – the contrasts and the magic; that direct connection to the music.
The boys from Athens’ legacy is in good hands.
