Eastern Promise, This Weekend at Platform


As well as being a busy week for new records, there’s a blooming ton of stuff on too. Almost makes me wish I had some kind of guide to what’s on in any given week…

Friday and Saturday of this week sees the second Eastern Promise event take place at Platform in Easterhouse, with a rather excellent line up.

On Friday you can catch:
The Thing
Withered Hand (Solo)
Nancy Elizabeth

The bill for Saturday looks like this: To Rococo Rot
The Pastels
Silje Nes
Conquering Animal Sound
Animal Magic Tricks

Told you it was rather excellent. In addition Saturday will host the Scottish Independent Record Fair, making it’s second appearance after what was by all accounts a successful first run in Edinburgh in August.

Tickets cost £10 per night or £15 for the weekend, with under 16’s going for £3 per night or £5 for the weekend. Doors are at 7pm, and return buses leave Mono at 6:30pm and cost £4 return.
Tickets are available from Monorail, Tickets Scotland and See Tickets.

You can find out more about Platform, including how to get there if you are clueless like me, at the website.
