They are all in Glasgow to play McChuills, 40 High Street, Glasgow, just up from Glasgow Cross on Thursday 24 April from 9.00pm.

The Jesus Taco have released their debut album Folkuhila on Weak Records.

The singer-songwriter Bobby Vacant (pictured) with bassist/vocalist The Worn (Brigitte Meier) sing songs about roads and strangers, often with sad twists and turns along the way.

Of Tobias Thomhave, Celtic Music Radio’s Tom Hamilton says he is a “A poetic masterpiece!”
