Before I get on with what is on this week a quick thank to everyone that came down to The Classic Grand on Friday for our gig and a huge thanks to I build Collapsible Mountains, Come on Gang! and The Seventeenth Century for playing. They were all, of course, excellent.
Now, on to this week.
Not that keen on Wavves to be honest, but we like Otherpeople and PAWS loads. While I’m at it, you can grab a free download of Wooplash by Otherpeople over at Artrocker
The second Miller Filtered Music gig sees Ash play a stripped back set, joined by local supports Aerials Up and Alan R. Davison.
Focus Left is a new platform for short filmmakers who are interested in incorporating live elements into the screening of their work, whether it be live music, soundscape, performance or improvised narration. The line up for the night includes:
Forest of Black’s short film from this year’s Homegame Music Festival
Live audiovisual electronica performance of No Man’s Land by Fiona Soe Paing
Retchy (aka Graeme Hawkins) performing The Lyre Of Orpheus

Another chance to see Sigma Film’s I Love Luci (recently screened at the Fence Records’ Hallowe’en party)
Launch gig for Sonny Marvello’s new EP, Pull Me Up.
One of our favourite bands, You Already Know, play their first proper gig in ages. I am fully prepared to have my face melted, my ears pounded and to love every minute of it. Get yourself along.
This is a fundraiser for Cystic Fibrosis, so your money will be put to good use if you go.
Edinburgh launch gig for The Scottish Enlightenments debut album. The album is pretty much brilliant and this gig should be too. The Glasgow launch is the following week, so Edinburgh people have a chance to pick up the album first and rub our West of Scotland faces in it.
The Power Cut Choir, Freight Logistics. Gambetta.
Define Pop Festival 3. Stereo, The Admiral, Pivo Pivo. (Tickets)
