I Superdeluxe, Force Ten Bob and Stylophone King Tut‘s Wah Wah Hut. St Vincent Street. 221 5279. 8.30pm. £3.50. Superdeluxe formed in Seattle two years ago and as their debut LP Famous demonstrates they have more in common with the power-pop of The Lemonheads and Gigolo Aunts than they do with the grunge sons of their city. Support from local band Stylophone who. despite their name are not some Bis-style toy keyboard enthusiasts but make mature pop whimsy along the same lines as The Lightning Seeds. They currently have a debut 7in ‘She's Just \Vaiting'l‘On My ()wn'.
I The Finger Creams Times Square. St linoch Square. 221 6579. Free. Local lo-li band. as in they make the most of the resources they have to create a quirky sound which has been described as Bis- meets-The Violent Femmes. much to the band's satisfaction and borne out by their current ‘Stars' FIP.

I Metallica Barrtm'land. Gallowgate. 552 4601. 7.30pm. SOLD OUT.
