NOT FOR­GOT­TON Sim­ple Minds Trends come and fads go, but sta­dium rock seems des­tined to hang around for­ever. With a back­ground in 1970s punk rock, Glas­gow’s Sim­ple Minds quickly traded UK/US spik­i­ness for a more svelte Euro-pop sen­si­bil­ity. The decades since have seen their pro­file os­cil­late, but they’re ob­vi­ously in a bit of a pur­ple patch th­ese days. Spe­cial guests are fel­low punk sur­vivors The Stranglers. TCL SHOW­CASE Saucy Sun­days Fifth Birth­day Swan­song The venue’s long­est run­ning club cel­e­brates its fifth birth­day and also bows out in style. The fi­nal gig of this much-ad­mired emerg­ing mu­sic tal­ent out­ing fea­tures Hot Sprock­ets, Gavin Glass & the Holy Shak­ers, Buf­falo Sunn, My Tribe Your Tribe, and more. Thank you and goodnight! ART Ev­ery­thing Must Go: Art and the Mar­ket This show fea­tures Ir­ish and in­ter­na­tional artists ex­plor­ing “ideas of value and eco­nomics in their work”,’ con­sid­er­ing the ways in which value be­comes at­tached re­gard­less of an artist’s ini­tial in­ten­tions, via such fac­tors as con­text and dis­play, prove­nance and own­er­ship, rar­ity and rep­u­ta­tion.
