A missive from Stephen at Monorail Music in Glasgow...

"Just to let you know - our friends and landlords at Mono are hosting a very special evening with Howe Gelb (of Giant Sand) on Tues 22nd August (doors 8.30pm). Howe will be flying into Glasgow especially for an intimate solo performance on piano and guitar. This is his ONLY UK appearance.

Also, on Wednesday 23rd August (doors 8.30), Mono have the incredible destructo-pop unit, Quasi, from Portland, OR. In case you don't know, Quasi live are wild and brilliant - kind of like The Zombies meets Swell Maps. They feature Janet Weiss of Sleater Kinney and Sam Coomes (one of Elliott Smith's main collaborators) and, now, Joanna Bolme from The Jicks. They are joined by their old muckers, International Airport. I'm part of the association!

Tickets available from Monorail, Kings Court, King Street (0141 552 9458) and Tickets Scotland."
