Paisley live music gig guide

2nd Feb 2024

Mickey 9’s the popular purveyors of bass and beat are playing The Bungalow tonight, Friday 2 February 2024.

The funky Glaswegian 4-piece – with a masked, shamanic frontman known only as ‘St. Cool’ – are best-known for their infectious rhythms and electrifying live performances. In fact, the band’s shows earned them the ‘Best Live Act’ award at last year’s Scottish Alternative Music Awards.

Mickey 9s have always done things in their own, irreverent way. The last couple of years have seen the band release a series of popular music videos, hilarious comic strips protesting against Thatcher, Bono, and all things evil, and regularly blowing the minds of unsuspecting gig punters all over the UK.

Mickey 9s’ debut album ‘The Party Manifesto’ parades all that is great about the band: driving bass rhythms, funky guitar licks, four-to-the-floor pounding beats and satirically potent lyrics. It is music like a bomb: unpredictable, explosive, and with a hefty bass-sound. Only a few tickets left, and you might get them on the door from 7.00pm.

Tomorrow, Saturday 3 February, The Bungalow Mod All Dayer is back again and this time it features a fantastic line up including The Players, Bits & Pieces, The M65’s, The Substitutes, SHOUT! and guest DJ. Tickets on the door from 1.00pm, all for £12.

For the first time the Jesse Janes (pictured) are bringing their previously sold out live show to The Bungalow and for that matter, Scotland.

The show celebrates the now legendary soundtrack from the Coen Brothers 2000 movie ‘O Brother, Where Art Thou?’. The band will also be performing many iconic tunes associated with the movie music producer and musician T Bone Burnett. Expect to hear classic tunes made famous by the likes of Johnny Cash, Bob Dylan, Emmylou Harris, Alison Kraus, John Prine, Elvis, The Stanley Brothers, Roy Orbison, Jimmie Rodgers, and Gillian Welch to name a few.

The Jesse Janes are an Americana quartet made up of Irish sisters Kate and Mary-Rose plus Liverpool lads Tom and Ben.

Heavily influenced by Bluegrass and Blues, they have been enchanting audiences in Ireland and the northwest of England for over 10 years with their joyful Americana interpretation of many a classic song, plus an increasing repertoire of originals. The band are particularly looking forward to performing in Paisley as the girl’s Dad is a Buddie. Tickets on the door on Sunday from 5pm.
