The best rock, pop, jazz and folk

King Creosote It may have been last year that his incredible KC Rules OK album came out but there’s still plenty who haven’t had the chance to catch Kenny Anderson’s joyous sound live. Now here’s the perfect chance. ABC, Glasgow, Sat 21 Oct. (Rock & Pop)

The Dears Two albums in, Canada’s finest prove that it’s not only fellow countrymen and kindred spirits Arcade Fire who can dish out the ingenious, affecting musical one-liners. Swoonsome. Oran Mor, Glasgow, Fri 20 Oct. (Rock & Pop)

James Yorkston Another mild mannered musical master from the Kingdom who’s going from strength to strength. Who’d have thought Fife could be filled with so many sublime melodies? Liquid Room, Edinburgh Sun 22 Oct; ABC, Glasgow, Mon 23 Oct. (Rock & Pop)

Big Big World World music festival. Various venues, Glasgow, Sat 21-Sat 28 Oct. (Rock & Pop, Folk, Jazz)

The View A cracking wee Dundonian punk pop outfit, riding the post-Artic Monkeys wave with aplomb. Most excellent support comes in the shape of shrewd janglers Pull Tiger Tail and The Cinematics. Barfly, Glasgow, Sun 22 Oct; QMU, Glasgow, Wed 25 Oct. (Rock & Pop)

Calexico Messrs Burns and Convertino have rocked up their cinematic Tex/Mex blend of late but that doesn’t change the fact that they are still one of the best live acts around anywhere. ABC, Glasgow, Wed 1 Nov. (Rock & Pop)
