Sunday night, it’s a bit rubbish really isn’t it? Ironing shirts, having a bath, watching someone you mildly detest get eliminated from a TV show you hate yourself for watching.
Want to do something much better with your Sunday night? Want to help out a charity while enjoying yourself?
Get yourself along to Mono from 7:30pm then, for a night of music celebrating Elliott Smith.
Elliott is pretty much one of my favourite songwriters ever, and finding out he’d died is a moment that will always be stuck in my head, as I learned as I was sitting having a pint in the 13th Note before heading out to see friends, who the same day were celebrating the birth of their first child. Swings and roundabouts, eh?
Taking to the stage to cover some Elliott Smith songs are The Big Nowhere (who you might remember from my birthday party, although my memory is quite hazy), Endor, Male Pattern Band, Perestroika, members of Monoganon and more, with an open mic at the end.
Doors open at 7:30, entry will cost you £4, and all proceeds go to Aberlour Children’s Charity.
There’s also the promise of a raffle and cake (pictured below)
