Vic is off on his jollies this week but I’m sure that he would approve of “unsigned noise-mongers” Bronto Skylift as the international Scottish gig of the week this week. Vic will be be back next Monday and in the meantime you can follow his adventures in Maui here.

Bronto Skylift will play Billy O’s in Ventura tonight, the Five Star Bar in LA on Friday, Origami Vinyl in Echo Park on Saturday, and the Down & Out in LA on Sunday. Their final US gig will be next Monday at the Silverlake Lounge before they head home for a gig at King Tuts on on the 23rd. Full details below.

Here is one of Detour Scotland’s very first videos featuring Bronto Skylift:


And here is Detour’s latest video which also features a brilliant cameo by the Bronto lads.
