I The Australian Pink Floyd Show King Tut's Wah Wah Hut, St Vincent Street. 221 5279. 8.30pm. £5. Is there still an audience for these tribute bands? This lot couldn't even be bothered to think up a crap punning name. And how are they going to ﬁt the ﬂying pigs and pyrotechnics into King Tut’s?
I Boylriend Nice ‘n' Sleazy. Sauchiehall Street. 333 9637. 9pm. Almost universally panned Teenage Fanclub/Pastels copyists. Maybe it’s all an ironic comment on not looking far enough for your inﬂuences. Then again . . .

I Klth And Kill La Belle Angele. Hastie’s Close (behind The Pelican), Cowgate, 225 2774. 10pm.
