Dropkick celebrate their recently released ‘Best of’ compilation with an evening of amazing Scottish melody makers. Hailing from the east of Scotland, Dropkick have drawn on influences such as Wilco, Teenage Fanclub and The Jayhawks to produce their own blend of harmony-driven, power-pop for well over a decade. This is a rescheduled show, partly to finally celebrate the 2020 release of the band’s new record, The Scenic Route, while also focussing on the ‘Best of Dropkick’ compilation, released since then. “Those who have yet to latch onto them are surely missing something special….Indie, powerpop, accomplished harmonies, alt.country tendencies. What’s not to love?” (The Herald). Support from The Vapour Trails, Daniel McGeever (and band) and Shaun McLachlan (Delta Mainline).
