Vigo Thieves, stalwarts of Scotland’s indie circuit, will be performing at Buskers in Dundee tonight. The Wishaw quintet play small venues, but the band has made steady progress since forming in 2008. Sing-a-long choruses and anthemic hooks are the byword for tonight’s show.

Buskers, 15 Ward Road, Dundee


As part of Sonica, a programme dedicated to sonic arts, Submerge is a audio exploration of Glasgow’s streams. The exhibition explores underwater sounds by combining underwater recordings with data from OPAL Community Scientist Joanne Dempster and the labs of Glasgow’s Scientific Services.

Always Be Comedy invites a hand-picked selection of up-and-coming comedians, established performers and mystery guests to perform their best routines. Stand-up tends to play out in small, intimate venues, so a show at the Kelvingrove Bandstand and Ampitheatre should make a nice change of pace.

Kelvingrove Bandstand and Amphitheatre, Kelvingrove Park, Glasgow


Behaviour, a film by Ernesto Daranas, has taken Cuba by storm as their official entry to the 2014 Best Foreign Film Academy Award. Based on the impoverished but bright Chala, the film sees him struggle to support himself and his alcoholic mother in the sun-soaked Havana. Trying to make money by raising carrier pigeons and dogfighting eventually gets him kicked of school as one teacher fights to keep him from falling into despondency.

Glasgow Film Theatre, 12 Rose Street, Glasgow


The biggest fireworks display in the capital as ever takes place at Meadowbank Stadium, with doors opening at 6pm and entertainment from 6.30pm. Rockets commence at 7.30pm. Tickets are £6.50 - but you could always view the fireworks from nearby Holyrood Park for nothing.
