I’ve just got word that saxophonist Paul Booth will be playing at the Old Hairdressers in Renfield Lane this Wednesday (24th), with a band made up of Malcolm Macfarlane (guitar), Euan Burton (bass) and Andrew Bain (drums).
Booth’s played in Glasgow several times before and has always been well worth hearing. This date is part of a UK tour promoting his recent album Trilateral, which Bain played on. The Scottish leg of the tour also includes gigs in Aberdeen (Blue Lamp, Thursday) and Edinburgh (Jazz Bar, Friday).
The concert starts at 8.30pm, and tickets are £10 (or £5 if you’re a student or a musician). If you’re not familiar with the venue, it’s in Renfield Lane, which runs between Renfield Street and Hope Street just up from Central Station. It’s directly opposite Stereo and, as the name suggests, used to be a hairdressers.
