Original punk outfit Psychodogs will join tribute bands Psychotherapy and The Removal Machine for a lively show from 8pm.

Ms Findlater said: "They're all old friends that I've known since my late teens.

"It's the first time any of the bands have played in England and it's absolutely brilliant to have them here.

"I'm really looking forward to the gig."

The bands all hail from Uddevalla, near Gothenburg.

Admission to the gig is free.
