eccentrics. fronted on this tour by not one but two vocal divas. with Julee Cruise surrendering her beguiling whisper to belt out the spiky sparky pop set with the wondrom Kate Pearson. An extra date has been added tomorrow night.
I Rage Against The Machine King Tut‘s Wah Wah Hut. St Vincent Street. 221 5279. 9pm. £5. Politically motivated US rock/rap crossover - yes. one of them — who claim to be the ﬁrst band of that type not to alienate either audience. and who are widely tipped by some omniscient source to become highly successful.
I Gobstopper, Perambulator and Smells Like Marzipan Nice'n'Sleazy. Sauchiehall Street. 333 9637. 9pm. Noisy. Punky. Er. that's all we know actually.

I Elvis Costello and The Btodsity Quartet Glasgow Royal Concert Hall. Sauchiehall Street. 7.30pm. £15.50. £12.50. Tickets from the Ticket Centre. Candleriggs. 227 551 1. Their much-trumpeted collaboration The Juliet Letters is hardly full of surprises but the transposition to the live setting should be an interesting one. what with The Brodsky Quartet's impeccably fluid performances.

See preview for St Etienne. Pulp are an experience in themselves. if you lamented the passing of World Of 'Nist then what are you waiting for? Get your ticket now. Oddball tack-to-go presentation and unashamed trashpop sounds emanating from their wibbly conscience. embellished by Jarvis Cocker‘s priceless sardonic observations. Pop tarts one and all.
I The Four DI lie King Tut's Wah Wah Hut. St Vincent Street. 221 5279. 9pm. £5.50. A name and a sound that doesn't exactly push back the parameters of the rock’n‘roll myth. Nevertheless. spunky performances from an otherwise workmanlike Irish band.
I Junk Republic and Junkyard East Venue. Sauchiehall Street. 332 3872. 9.30pm. £3. Unusual but anachronistic 80s-sounding pop from Junk Republic: their support Junkyard East liven things up with a drum machine-led pop sound.

Highly interesting triple bill. with American singer-songwriter Fjaere (‘like Sierra with an F') unveiling her new full-band line-up.

I The turning Subway. Cowgate. 225 6766. Doors open 9.30pm. New indie-rock group with textural. upfront guitars and reticent vocals. a little reminiscent of New Order on their demo.
I Elinor Negociants. Lothian Street. 225 6313. 10pm. Free.
I Iarman King Tut‘s Wah Wah Hut. St Vincent Street. 221 5279. 9pm. £4. The lrish agit-rappers who seamlessly blend traditional lrish folk instrumentation into a challenging message on some of their tracks. Current single ‘What‘s it All About?‘ is more in the slick Talkin‘ Loud vein.
I Circus Lupus and Lungrlsh Dunny. 13th Note. Glassford Street. 553 1638. 8pm. £3.50. A Dischord Records double-bill which possibly means spiky minimalism but for a label that includes the sublime. almost jazz- inflected strains of Shudder To Think we shouldn't jump to conclusions. We should just go along to the gig.
I Calvln's Dream RG‘s. Queen Street. 221 2200. 10pm. Free.
