Nick Shoulders is here to put the “try” into country and is in the Grand Social tonight. He has come a long way since his days in punk bands but those roots are still there as his music is heartfelt. The Einsturzende Neubaten gig is jinxed as the rescheduled date has been postponed due to illness. Such a shame for the band, the people who wanted to go along and those involved in putting on the show. It’s hard for promoters getting back into putting gigs on and things ike this make it even more difficult but completely unavoidable.

Pussy Riot are in town tomorrow, it seems to have slipped under the radar but these Russian subsersives are even more relevant in the context of world events this year. Indie Rockers the Snuts are in the Button Factory while Jamie Webster will be rallying against the Tories in his sing along show at the Olympia. I will be caught between Doom metal purveyors, Divide and Dissolve, and M Stevens and the Ghasts both in Whelans on Thursday.

It’s a week for record releases, M Stevens Album is coming out on Thursday while Stereotype are celebrating the launch of their new record on friday in the Thomas House with the sweet lullabies of Ken O’Duffy opening up. There’s a cool hardcore gig on in the Hut on Saturday with Goon, Lost to Life and Sawn Off. Busy times all round
