Hitlist

The Best Rock, Pop, Jazz & Folk

Sugababes This is not secret indulgence or guilty pleasure, the greatest hits of Sugababes is one of the truly all-killer-no-filler albums of recent memory and one of the few things that keeps The List’s office manager from shouting at the staff and that’s got to be good. Live, the band are a similarly fun spectacle. SECC, Mon 9 Apr. (Rock & Pop)

Spectrum 4 Episode four of this all-dayer of music with aural pleasures from Action Group, The Magnificents, Ten Storeys High, Callel, Sixpeopleaway, Keser and Evade plus sundry DJs and stalls. What that means is a genre-mixing afternoon and evening of generally good sounds, good food and good vibes. See Exposure for more on Sixpeopleaway. Queen’s Hall, Edinburgh, Sun 1 Apr. (Rock & Pop)

Kate Nash The legacy of Mike ‘Streets’ Skinner looms large as this quirky acoustic, urban storyteller makes her presence known with tales of cheese on toast and idiotic boyfriends. See preview. King Tut’s, Glasgow, Sat 31 Mar; Henry’s, Edinburgh, Sun 1 Apr. (Rock & Pop)

Bis See preview. King Tut’s, Glasgow, Fri 6 Apr. (Rock & Pop)

Midlake Denton, Texas may be a small blip on the map but it is a hotbed of musical wonders. This quintet are the leading lights, their album of gloriously wheezy, alt.country musings are nothing short of brilliant. See preview. ABC, Glasgow, Mon 9 Apr. (Rock & Pop)

Bob Dylan There’s more opportunity to see Dylan now he’s getting on in years than there ever was in his youthful prime. He can impress a crowd of aficionados and Greatest Hits owners with equal aplomb. SECC, Glasgow, Wed 11 Apr. (Rock & Pop)
