This Week’s Gigs: 11th – 17th April


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

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.
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.
Jeniferever, Where We Lay Our Heads. The Captain’s Rest. (Tickets)
Toy Horses, Luigi Strauss, Alkotron. King Tut’s. (Tickets)
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.
First band on at 11, free before 12, carnage till 3.
Foxgang, Monsters on Movie Posters, Stu Goodall Band. The Wee Red Bar, Edinburgh.
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!

  5. Colin says:

    Ha! Yes, it was myself. Hidden away in the corner. Really enjoyed the Miaoux Miaoux set. He’s changing the way I think about bleep whirrr bleep electro music. ;)
