So I've been running a blog for nearly a week now. Figure it's time I try rounding up some things worth checking out from that first week, whilst I try to come up with some other things you might like on here.
You might find the following worthwhile:
King Tut's New Years Revolution will round up this week with performances from bands such as Black International, Haight Ashbury and Fatherson (not all in the same gig, there's plenty more too).
Kid Canaveral announced details of their forthcoming second LP, Now That You're a Dancer, due March 4th on Fence Records. Their Glasgow album launch at The Glad Café on Friday 1st March has sold out but they've added a second date, the following night, so get tickets to that!
Chvrches are doing their first UK tour, including a March 2nd stop at The Arches, and tickets went on sale today. You can get them via Ticketmaster.
If you have access to any of Frightened Rabbit's previous albums then you can access shiny bonus content from Pedestrian Verse here, including the chance to hear The Oil Slick and watch a making of the album video. Pedestrian Verse is released February 4th.
Randolph's Leap appeared on Marc Riley's BBC6 Music show and it's now available on iPlayer to listen again. They will also be performing instore at Avalanche Records on January 20th.
Bear Arms are headlining Nice'N'Sleazy's on February 9th. Support from The King Hats and True Acardian. Tickets only £5 here.
Avalanche Records are preparing a few special instores for the coming year, and to keep abreast of their announcements you should follow their Twitter.
There's lots happening in Scottish music and that's just what caught my attention. I'm sure there's much more to come and I'll do my best to keep up with it. 2013 is off to a solid start and here's to it continuing strongly!
