Whats on this weekend

Becci Wallace

The Bungalow has a star-studded line up tonight and they are Becci Wallace: A Glasgow based singer-songwriter and producer. She is firmly placed at the heart of Scotland’s song writing community. The first thing you will notice is her tireless energy, versatility and zest for lyrics and melody. As a solo artist her first album Fragmentality was released in 2015, gaining plaudits across the country and securing multiple national and local radio plays. Her current project Present Tense was released in November 2020 to critical acclaim, featured as BBC Roddy Hart’s ‘Record of Note’ and across national radio in Scotland and local radio across the UK and Europe. Becci is known for her unique vocals, tight harmonies and thought-provoking lyrics. 

John Rush: A well known Paisley musician who is now Glasgow based. His, “folk tinged pop songs” have gotten John some great gigs, He has played at the Barrowland Ballroom (four times), King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut, O2 Academy, O2 ABC, Royal Concert Hall and Saint Luke’s & The Winged Ox as well as many more venues around Scotland and festivals in Scotland and England. Through the years he has racked up some highly acclaimed support slots with Paul Weller, Ocean Colour Scene, Chris Helme (The Seahorses), Steve Pilgrim (Paul Weller’s drummer) and Johnny Lloyd (Tribes). 

Linzi Clark: This Paisley singer-songwriter has been building her legacy from a young age, soaking up inspiration from the people and places around her. Having already made an indelible impact on the Scottish music scene as one of half electro-pop duo DRIFT, the singer is ushering in an auspicious new chapter of her musical story with the announcement of new solo material. Bringing her own unique individual talents to the forefront once and for all, the new project presents her in an entirely different light – pairing her deep, soulful vocals with striking arrangements that balance the rich storytelling tradition of artists like Julia Jacklin, Regina Spektor and Kate Bush with modern Americana hues. £12 on the door

Delighted to see The M65’s back for another free Saturday afternoon show from 2pm, a great way to start your day.

Tomorrow night is two bands for the price of one. Simple Minded and Deacon Blues are doing a double header. The last gig at The Bungalow was fantastic due to the band’s ability to capture the sound and energy that Simple Minds and Deacon Blue produced during their heyday. Tickets on the door are £10.
