Sunday. Gig Guide. Blah. You know the deal by now. As usual there’s a fair old amount on this week, so on we go.
The Year of Open Doors – Burnt Island, Adrian Crowley, King Creosote. Highland Park Spiegletent (tickets)
Launch night for The Year of Open Doors audiobook, available now from Chemikal Underground. For more details on The Year of Open Doors go read the post I wrote a few days ago. The previously secret performer has been announced, as King Creosote joins the line up.
Shambles Miller & others. Pivo Pivo. Free.
Miaoux Miaoux, Fox Gut Daata & “Special Guest”. Captain’s Rest, £5.
Launch gig for the gorgeous new Miaoux Miaoux single, Knitted, which will be available to buy on CD in lovely limited hand knitted sleeves. I’m quoted on the gig poster, so you know it’ll be good (go ahead and imagine a winking emoticon there if you want) I have my suspicions who the special guest is, but I’m probably not allowed to say. If it is who I think it is he was rather good at the gig I was at on Saturday though. (Update: I was right with my guess, Adam Stafford is your mystery guest,and I’m allowed to say so now.)
Enchantment Under The Sea – The Belle Hops, The Power Cut Choir and YOU. Bloc, free.
YOU? What? Over to the blurb about the gig – “In between bands: Teen Heart Throb Open Mic: YOU sing songs from the repertoire of history’s teen heart throbs. From Buddy Holly to Boyzone, from the Shangri-Las to the Spice Girls, it’s up to you! And we’ll give you sweeties as a reward!”
The Winter Tradition, Little Yellow Ukuleles, Galleries. Captain’s Rest.
The band formerly known as The Void launch their new single, with support from a couple of Aye Tunes favourites. For a chance to win tickets visit our blog buddy Favourite Son.
Gorman, Revelry Thieves. The Vale, £8.
Three smashing bands, and to entice the people of Aberdeen along there’s a free download of them all available here. I’ve mangled that sentence completely, the download is of the bands, not of all the people of Aberdeen.
