Last night the Aye Tunes team (all one of us) made a rare venture through to Leith for the Come On Gang! album launch/final gig. Pretty sure I had more fun than is medically safe. If I happened to talk to any of you from roughly 10pm onwards I apologise for everything I said. More on the album to come this week, but for now I’ll just suguest that you go buy it. You can get Strike a Match from iTunes just now.
Over four days, seven shows and over 30 performers, Margins brings you the biggest names in Scottish literature, like Liz Lochhead, Tom Leonard, Ewan Morrison, Doug Johnstone, Alan Bissett and Rodge Glass, to brand new talent and collaborations with the most popular regular literary nights in Scotland, including Words Per Minute, Golden Hour and Seeds of Thought.
To cap it all off, the final night has music from the critically acclaimed Withered Hand, joined by Burnt Island and Where We Lay Our Heads.
Here’s all the events, with each costing a mere £1. Yes, one pound. Bargain. Afternoon shows start at 4pm, evening shows at 7pm, all taking place in Stereo. Both the venue and the sound, I presume.
