This Week’s Gigs: 1st – 7th November


This week’s guide is brought to you by the numbers three and five, and a large amount of bias.

Derry’s Fighting With Wire hit Scotland, and drag in Aye Tunes favourites Carnivores as support. It’ll be loud, it’ll be good. Oh aye, Carnivores have cheap tickets too.
Happy Birthday, PAWS. Captain’s Rest.
Happy Birthday, Mtchell Museum. Sneaky Pete’s, Edinburgh.
A delightful evening of M’s. Our love for Mitchell Museum and Miaoux Maioux is bordering on unhealthy, and Miniature Dinosaurs are quite smashing too. If you only go to two gigs this week make this your first one. The other one is on Friday, obviously.
Fabrikant Records Present: Flights of Fancy. The Lot, Edinburgh.
Featuring musicians from Conquering Animal Sound, Haftor Medb√łe Group, The Lotus Project, Discordian Trio, NeWt, Stanley Odd and more.
We like the Second Hand Marching Band and Benni Hemm Hemm round here, but we are paticularly excited about the third band. Comprising Alasdair Roberts, Wounded Knee, Sean from John Knox Sex Club and SHMB members Alistair, Pete, Ross and Rich, they’ll be performing songs based on the work of Paisley poet Robert Tannahill. Pop over here for some more details, and a few free mp3s too.
The Last Battle, The Scottish Enlightenment, Very Well. Wee Red Bar, Edinburgh.
I’ve owed The Last Battle an album review for ages now, but the short version is this – their debut album is really very good. The upcoming album by The Scottish Enlightenment is also very good. Edinburgh folk could do a lot worse than pop along to this. The Last Battle also have an instore appearance at Elvis Shakespeare’s on Saturday.
Our pals over at Elba Sessions have their last gig of the year on Thursday and as usual it is well worth a look.
Aye Tunes Vs Peenko III: I Build Collapsible Mountains, Come on Gang!, The Seventeenth Century. The Classic Grand. (More Info)
Well of course I’m going to tell you to go to this. I’ve been slightly less obnoxious in pimping this gig on the blog so far, but you can probably expect me to ram it down your throat between now and Friday. Even if it wasn’t me & Peenko putting it on I’d be advising you to go though, as we always put on a line up we’d want to go to. This will be the final AVP gig and we aim to end things with a bang, so it would be nice to see lots of faces there, familiar and new. Please come. Holler if you want tickets.
Other gig options are available on Friday, but bias means I’m not telling you what they are.
Oh ok then, since I like these bands, you can find Mondegreen at Nice N Sleazy and Male Pattern Band, Black Jash and Jacob Yates and the Pearly Gate Lock Pickers at The 13th Note.
