Later this week we'll be putting up our full QnA interview with the very busy Ally McCrae.
But he found a few minutes this week to offer his top tips of music acts to see at Wednesday and Thursday's showcase gigs across Inverness.
"For Wednesday – Scary People write some dark, edgy rock. Neon Waltz – newcomers who I’ve been loving, but haven’t caught live. For things a little louder, both Vasa and United Fruit are must sees. And if it’s all a bit much, some acoustic goodness from Michael Cassidy won’t go a-miss.
"And on Thursday – Baby Strange near caused a riot at Big Weekend, Deathcats have an equal amount of fuzzy guitar aggression, Model Aeroplanes are Dundee’s future indie pop stars – the 1D of new music! Schnarff Schnarff are wild live and, like the night before, if you need a bit of soothing after all the guitars, check out Siobhan Wilson."
Ally McCrae will be one of the judges for the goNORTH Demo Jury event on Thursday at 4pm in the Mercure Hotel, Inverness.
