This Week’s Gigs: 1st – 7th August


How did it get to August already? Blimey, time flies when you sit on your arse for most of it.

Either this week is fairly quiet, or I’ve missed a lot. Consider this edited highlights if you like. There are a couple of crackers though.
PAWS, Lady North, Vasquez. Sneaky Pete’s. (Tickets)
Edinburgh leg of the PAWS/Lady North split single launch. Go, buy the single, enjoy.
PAWS, Lady North, Hairy AREA. Captain’s Rest. (Tickets)
See Monday, really.
Why do these two both have to be on Wednesday? Coin toss needed, I think. TMATC release a new single on Monday, but more on that in the news post tomorrow.
Ooh, splendid.
A return of sorts for the Barmellodie night. This will be your last chance to catch Le Reno Amps for quite some time, as one of them is heading off to China, making gigs somewhat tricky.
Scottish Independent Record Fair. Summerhall, Edinburgh.
Running from 1pm on Sunday, the record fair will have stalls from a bunch of Scottish indie labels, along with acoustic music and DJ sets all afternoon. More details here.
Born To Be Wide: Edinburgh Night. Electric Circus.
Kicking off at 7pm – so you could pop along after the record fair – the night will feature short ten minute taster sets from a number of local bands, including Lady North, Capitals, Rachel Sermanni, Withered Hand, and more. A wee bit more about this, including how you can earn yourself free entry, should be in the news post tomorrow.
