Murry‘s. Maxwell Street. 221 651 1. 10.30pm. £3 (£2 student). Alive appearance from the soul-tinged Wild Monkey to mark the first public night of new club Strictly Rhythm.
I Goodbye Mr Mackenzie Music Box. Victoria Street. 225 2564. See Mon 24.
I Smile and Louisa Goiiin Venue. Caiton Road. 557 3073. Smile’s forte is building poppy new songs out ofclassic half-recognised riffs and chord progressions. and they gave Different Class Records (the in-house label of West Lothian College Music Management Course) their biggest success to date with the Merseybeat-influenced ‘Obvious‘. Singer-songwriter Louise Goffin has arguably the most illustrious parentage in popular music. being the daughter of Gerry Goffin and Carole King. so she‘s unlikely to let us down.

I The Gods Oi Glam Platform One. Rutland Street. 225 2433. 9pm. £1.50. Not an actual tribute band along the lines of The Scottish Sex Pistols. but still a band paying tribute to those huge glam riffs of the early 70s — with an Osmonds number or two thrown in for a change ofpace.

We‘ve been spoilt for choice in the American indie-rock field lately. with some excellent records and visits from the likes of Pavement and Mercury Rev.
