This Week’s Gigs: 11th – 17th April

Standard

Gigs for the week, in a guide format. I’m quite short on witty banter this week. No change there then.

Monday:
As well as being half of Conquering Animal Sound, an Inverness fan and very tall, The Japanese War Effort is also ace. Free entry too, bonus.
UPDATE: This has been cancelled, so don’t go.
Tuesday:
If you don’t know what I think of the Seventeenth Century by now you just haven’t been paying attention. I think they’ll be playing a bit more stripped back than usual for this gig.
Wednesday:
Jeniferever, Where We Lay Our Heads. The Captain’s Rest. (Tickets)
Toy Horses, Luigi Strauss, Alkotron. King Tut’s. (Tickets)
Thursday:
Lone Pigeon, The Pictish Trail. Pilrig St Pauls, Edinburgh.
Shambles Miller, Where We Lay Our Heads (acoustic). The Free Hetherington.
A wee bit of free acoustic fun at The Free Hetherington. I’ve said free too much now.
Nevada Base, Alpine Ski Champion. Nice n Sleazy.
Six Storeys High, People, Places, Maps. Cabaret Voltaire, Edinburgh.
Literary Death Match. The Arches.
Not a gig, but likely to be good and I don’t just do music. Especially when it means I can sneak in a plug for Cargo Publishing. More details on Facebook.
Friday:
First band on at 11, free before 12, carnage till 3.
Foxgang, Monsters on Movie Posters, Stu Goodall Band. The Wee Red Bar, Edinburgh.
Saturday:
Record Store Day! Info on instores etc will be in a separate post on Monday.
Popcorn Fiend, Battery Face, Public Spaces. Captain’s Rest.
A very special one off full band reunion for Popcorn Fiend, to celebrate the launch of their new EP.
Admittedly it is a bit unlikely I’ll have any Londoners looking at the blog for something to do on Saturday, but worth a try.
Wrongnote, Monstro. Nice N Sleazy.
Ryan Bisland, Brigade. Altnaharra Hotel, Altnaharra

    I knew that didn’t look quite right. This is what happens when you wait till nearly midnight to write your blog posts!

  3. Colin says:

    Sorry for being such a pain Jim. I’m just a bit of a fanboy for that band, you know… :)

  4. Jim says:

    If I’m being corrected at least I know someone is reading :) Never realised it was yourself taking photos at the gig on Saturday either!
