Lonehead are launching their new album at The Bungalow tonight. Their special guests are The Real World and Judged by 12. Born out of the gritty Glasgow rock scene, Lonehead are a powerful three-piece band playing their own brand of melodic alternative rock. Their sound lands somewhere between Cream and The Manics or maybe Biffy, The Clash and The Who. Featuring the virtuoso lead guitar of Glasgow legend ‘Uncle’ Jim Keilt, the band signed to new Glasgow music label Frantastic68 Records (iOcco Music).  Lonehead were nominated for Single of the year on Radio Six International and have reached no 17 in the Scottish New Music Chart. Referred to as ‘the Caledonian rock machine’ Lonehead are fronted by singer bass player Martin Jenkins and bolstered by ex-Cosmic Rough Rider Mark Brown on drums. Doors are at 7pm and you can get tickets on entry.


Tomorrow night it is the turn of Skaledonia who give you an energy fueled night of Ska supported by The Substitutes performing all The Who classic hits and more. Tickets are £8 and doors are 7pm. 

Ghostbaby, Frog Fountain and Polly are the three bands for Thursday’s Introducing Night. Tickets are £5/£3 for students, available on Eventbrite and on the door unless sold out. Doors are from 7pm, with the first act coming on at 8pm.

Tomorrow night Brendan J Carr brings his highly acclaimed tribute show ‘I’m Your Man’ (a tribute to George Michael and Wham) to the Rocknrollas stage. There is not much we need to say about George Michael’s music as it defined a decade and Brendan does his music justice and the proof is  he sells out shows up and down the country and this one will be no different. Doors open at 7.30pm and tickets are £10 and £15.
