It's a good week for revivals. A couple of more successful reunions are passing through, and side projects are making visits. So really, whether you miss specific bands, decades, or genres, it's a good week to have your nostalgic whims fulfilled:
Tonight, Travis frontman Fran Healy goes solo with songs from his debut album at Dingwalls.
Tuesday night, retro-popper Jim Noir is making a rare London appearance at Garage, while Vivian Girl Katy Goodman brings her latest project, La Sera, to Madame Jojo's.
Wednesday, post-punk legends and modern day avant garde rockers Wire will be at Scala. Twee pop band Lulu and the Lampshades are at The Lexington to celebrate the launch of their EP.
Thursday, neo-classical troupe The Grubby Mitts — the vehicle for composer Andy Holden — are at The Lexington. This one should be a priority for those of you wh6 like a baroque spin on your indie.
Friday, Kurt Cobain's favourite singers and Glasgow's favourite jangle-pop revival The Vaselines are at XOYO.
Saturday, prepare to have your senses overwhelmed by the 20-strong all-female rock choir Gaggle, and their visually stunning coordinated costumes, at The Borderline.
