In Edinburgh on Tuesday 19th, at the Voodoo Room, a four-act bill. Headliners are This Is The Kit who are from down south somewhere, as is Rozi Plain, though she’s also a Fence Collective member. Edinburgh resident Candythief, and Plum (former Benbecula artiste) are also playing – details here.
There’s also an in-store at Coda on the Mound at 4.30 p.m, and teas, coffees and chocolate brownies are promised.
And the gig is at the Voodoo Rooms. I attach the press, and the two fb events for Coda/Voodoo rooms are below.
Friday 22nd at Flying Duck sees what’s surely an enormously fun night – Popcorn is “An Evening of Movie Music” with a variety of bands doing versions of movie themes, scores and songs.
Unclear how they’ll all fit in, but the cast list reads: Camino SurReal, The Downs, Graeme Ronald, The Paraffins, John Petrie, Skullgrinder, Sophie Sexon, Spread Eagle, Roy Moller and members of The Awkward Sons of Patrick Stewart, Bad Bad Men, The Ballad of Mable Wong, de Selby, Pioneers of Anaesthetic and UG!
It is a busy Friday in Glasgow – (A Band Called) Quinn launch new single ‘O Jackie’, at The Old Hairdressers on Friday 22nd. Also on the bill, their collaborator on said single, Kid Loco in from Paris for a rare Scottish outing both on the decks and live with the band.
Dead Man’s Waltz have their single launch at the Sabhal Mor Ostaig on the 23rd June. That’s on the Isle of Skye, and is probably the Gaelic Language institute at the University of the Higlands. Though since it’s all in Gaelic we can’t be 100% sure.
The Bad Books, Loch Awe, The Spook School and The New Fabian Society are at Edinburgh’s Wee Red Bar on Saturday 23rd. The Bad Books feature former members of Come on Gang! and The Kays Lavelle but, we’re told, sound nothing like either (instead, thing Grandaddy, they tell us). Also on the bill, Loch Awe’s – expanded to a five piece – and Glasgow duo The New Fabian Society. And Spook School, as far as we can tell.
And Rick Redbeard and Adam Stafford launch their split EP, which comes out on Gerry Loves this coming Monday. Along with local guest Debutant, they play Aberdeen’s Cellar 35 on Saturday, 23 June. (It’s an Interesting Promotions gig, as is often the case when good music comes to the city). More here
