1. Are you a Prince fan? And if not, why not? The coolest of cool dudes at BAAD have arranged a spectacular bank holiday weekender. Late Night Tuff Guy is bringing his spectaclar AV Prince tribute to Glasgow’s SWG3 tonight. A superhero of soul, a destroyer of dance floors and a purveyor of the smoothest sounds this side of 1977, LNTG is synonymous with the sexiest of sets and the most credible of disco edits. Pablo Contraband, a disco deviant himself, provides the support. From 8pm until close. £14

2. Elaine C Smith, fresh from her Bafta success for her performance as the unhinged Christine in the BBC2 hit sitcom Two Doors Down and her RTS award for the STV production Burdz Eye View, returns to the stage with her hugely successful one-woman show. A sparkling mix of intelligent stand-up, storytelling, music and occasional outbursts of communal singing, with a couple of more-than-interesting guests. Plus, there is even a chance to question the Queen of Scotland herself. I’m fairly sure there will be bit of indy chat in there. An Audience with Elaine C Smith, Festival Theatre, Edinburgh, Friday at 7.30pm. Tickets from £22, https://www.capitaltheatres.com/whats-on/an-audience-with-elaine-c-smith

6. Ol Black Eyes is back. Yes, the greatest ringmaster in rock, Alice Cooper hits Aberdeen and it’s a Killer bill. He’s joined by the Stranglers and MC50 this Saturday at the P&J. Alice can still pull out all the stops for one of the best rock shows in the world: incredible songs, dark humour, guillotines and shocks ... who could ask for more? P&J Live, Aberdeen, 6pm on Saturday. Tickets via ticketmaster.

7. The urban cool reinvention of Paisley is almost complete, with a DJ set by Leftfield at Club 69 on Friday at 11pm, when Neil Barnes will take Leftfield out of the studio and stadiums and back to the clubs.
