Check out what’s on over the next seven days locally and beyond.

Top Six

1. Falkirk Blues Club presents the saxophone-powered blues of the Deke McGee Band at the Wine Library, Princes Street tonight (Thursday) from 7.30pm. This Glasgow band blow away the myth that wailing blues solos should only flow through the fingers of an electric guitarist.

2. Falkirk Bohemians present All Shook Up at Falkirk Town Hall on Tuesday, October 31 and Wednesday, November 2 from 7.30pm. It’s a musical based on Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night with a Tupelo twist and fans of both the Bard and Elvis will no doubt dig the rock ‘n’ rolling plot.

3. Grangemouth’s greatest non-petrochemical export The Patryns will rocking the rafters at Behind The Wall on Saturday. This fast rising combo have already played to thousands of music lovers at various events and festivals – see and hear ‘em up close from 10pm.

4. Top Glasgow stand-up Susie McCabe helps Behind the Wall celebrate 25 years of its Eglesbrech ale and whisky bar from 8pm on Saturday. Funny – well duh – and self deprecating, Susie can have you in so many stitches you’ll think you had just run a 10k.

5. One of the hardest strumming – and hardest working – performers in Falkirk, Adam Stafford will be playing the Voodoo Rooms in Edinburgh from 7pm tonight (Thursday). The gig, which also features a set from The Eastern Swell is in aid of Edinburgh Carers Council.

6. A band who play at high volume and – if you’ve seen their shock rockumentary Some Kind of Monster from 2004 – have a high volume of emotional baggage, hit Glasgow SSEC tonight (Thursday). Don’t worry if you haven’t got tickets, just cock your ear to the west and you’ll hear ‘em.
