The best Rock, Pop, Jazz & Folk

Thea Gilmore A country rock troubadour in the best sense, Gilmore’s a poet and album Harpo’s Ghost is dark, expressive beast. Now we know what KT Tunstall’s imaginary older, smarter, slightly twisted sister might sound like. King Tut’s, Glasgow, Mon 26 Mar. (Rock & Pop)

Like a Kind of Matador, Black Sun, Dissolved and Alastair Crosbie A terrifying quadruple header of noise merchants. Superheaviosity that’s not for the fainthearted. 13th Note Club, Glasgow,
Sat 17 Mar. (Rock & Pop)

Esbjörn Svensson Trio The Swede’s live shows have been compared to rock concerts but with jazz instruments. This one should be no different. Usher Hall, Edinburgh, Sun 18 Mar. (Jazz)

MySpace Bleep Bleep Tour A quadrilateral equation of new acts, Pull Tiger Tail, Ali Love, Hadouken! and I Say Marvin try to justify all those pending friends’ requests on their sites with Neptunes-inspired funk, boisterous indie and more. Barfly, Glasgow, Wed 21 Mar. (Rock & Pop)

Po’Girl Vagabond lullabies, beat poetry, inner-city blues are how these four expressive women from Vancouver describe their sound. We say most excellent harmonies, rag tag arrangements with whatever instruments they can lay their mitts. Beguiling stuff. ABC, Glasgow, 24 Mar. (Folk)

Ceilidh Culture A month long celebration of the traditional arts bigs up locals along side legendary names like Peatbog Faeries and Moya Brennan. See preview. Various venues, Edinburgh, Sat 24 Mar-Sun 15 Apr. (Folk)
