A punk band, nasty neighborhoods, a catastrophe, and the the weather

1.  You know that time of year when it's not really spring yet, but it's just a little too warm to be called winter, and all the snow is kind of partly melted into a grayish slush?  When would that time of year be in Edinburgh, Scotland?  I'm assuming early March, but I want to be certain.  Edit:  I've pretty much got my answer on this one (or resources to find it easily), thanks!

2.  What hardcore punk band would have had a gig there, at that time of year, in 1978?  And where would they be performing?

3.  Were there any unexplained or random catastrophes within 50 miles or so of Edinburgh at about that time?  I'm hoping for explosions, collapsed buildings, severe sewer rupture, etc.  Anything that could have been theoretically caused by a small-to-moderate-sized supernatural battle.

4.  Where were the nasty neighborhoods in 1978, and what (if anything) were they called?  Where would I find nightclubs or bars?  And if you could point me in the direction of a good map of the city at that time, that would be great (okay, that one I could easily Google, but as I'm here...).

Fair warning, I'm going to be away from the computer for the weekend, so I probably won't respond to any comments left between about 9 or 10 pm Central tonight and sometime on Monday.

Thanks in advance!
