I Jesus Jones and Sunscreem Barrowland. Gallowgate. 552 4601. 7.30pm. £8 plus booking fee. Tickets from Just the Ticket. Virgin. Union Street. 226 4679. Big-headed. self-deprecating; traditional melodies. love affair with technology. Jesus Jones — the band who manage to embrace a mass of contradictions and still stimulate nothing more than a debate on style over content. Support Sunscreem seem to have grasped the idea behind contemporary-sounding dance pop with much more beguiling results.
I Boney M featuring Liz Mitchell Glasgow Royal Concert Hall. Sauehiehall Street. 7.30pm. £14. £12. Tickets from the Ticket Centre. Candleriggs. 227 551 l. A timely resurrection via Sound of the Seventies and the current obsession with anyone who put glitter on their face twenty years ago and sang. and let‘s face it. Boney M were loads better than Goombay Dance Band. Not all the original members in this line-up but as most of the original members didn‘t actually sing on their records. it hardly matters.

I The llair And Sltln Trading Company and Pram Wilkie House. Cowgate. Cunningly disguised former Loop members pump up the volume for further sonic extremes. from thunderous grunge- like workouts to mesmeric moments with a Can and Faust inﬂuence.
I llerman’s llermits Cavendish. West Tollcross. 228 3252. 1 l.3()pm. £5. Of all the successful 60s beat groups. the one that owed the most to music hall. singing George Formby songs while Morrissey was still a nipper. If you can handle

I Baby Chaos, Supernova and The Mutiny Strings Subway. Cowgate. 225 6766. Doors open 9.30pm. Unmissable (if you‘re into checking out local bands. that is) triple-header. with the headliner to be decided on the night. The other week. Baby Chaos thoroughly wowed our own Calvin Bush. who raved about their dizzy choruses. attitude and energy. Supemova's spirited guitar-pop has its fans too. and The Mutiny Strings‘ latest demo proves once again that some attention directed their way is long overdue.
I One People La Belle Angele. Hastie‘s Close (behind The Pelican). Cowgate. 225 2774. 9pm. £4 (£3). Possibility of extra special guests. so watch out!
I Jeggro Negociants. Lothian Street. 225 6313. 10pm. Free. A well-stirred pop concoction. with Jamaican and African inﬂuences to the fore.

Union Street. 226 4679. ‘You Really Got Me'. ‘All Day And All OfThe Night‘. all your 60s garage pop faves. you know the story. How it transposes to Glasgow.
