Paisley Gig Guide – 25 May 2018

Friday 25th May, 2018

It feels like summer is finally here and there’s plenty of great live music events taking place in venues around Paisley this week to boost the summer vibes.

True Order is Europe’s best tribute to the iconic Manchester band New Order and they are on at The Bungalow tonight. Through their understanding of technology and their musical ability, True Order has managed to capture the sound and attitude of New Order perfectly.

Performing the band’s greatest hits such as “Blue Monday”, “True Faith” and “Bizarre Love Triangle” as well as lesser known songs like “Procession” and “Everything’s Gone Green” they are a must for lovers of pop music and New Order fans alike. Tickets are £5 and the gig starts at 8pm.

On Saturday night The Weller Connection will be paying tribute to ‘The Modfather’ Paul Weller. The Weller Connection celebrates this British icon with a set list full of fantastic songs from The Jam, The Style Council and his recent solo material. Tickets £8 and starts at 8pm.

Los Perros are on tonight at The Old Swan from 8pm and tomorrow it is once again Maggie’s Cancer Day at The Old Swan. Maggie’s offers free practical, emotional and social support to people with cancer and their families and friends. The line up looks like this: Black Triangle, Trunk Monkey, John Condron & Friends and Dead Flowers. Andrew O’Donnell Roy McLelland and Noel McCormack and Zoe will all be playing in the beer garden with more expected to be added.

On Sunday after the Annual Trolley Dash from 4pm Andrew O’Donnell, Clyde and FreeSpeech will be having a party to finish off the annual fund raising weekend.

It’s three in a row this weekend at The Anchor starting with Black Triangles tomorrow from 6pm then on Sunday it is Robert McIntosh from 4pm followed by Jen McLauchlan who will be performing from 4pm on Monday.

The Tommy Bentz Band is back at The Cave tonight at 9pm as part of their UK Tour. The Tommy Bentz is a fantastic power trio that has been in existence for over 15 years, jamming in the style of the Allman Brothers meets Van Morrison. Tommy leads the band as the singer/songwriter/guitarist, his seemingly effortless style ranges from strident and thick “Clapton-esque” lines to satisfyingly classic rock ‘n roll.

Tomorrow night at 10pm Smokey Valley is on stage and on Sunday 6pm it is the turn of Straw Dogs. The Tea Gardens also have Hot Banana playing on Sunday at 6pm.
