This Week’s Gigs: 9th – 15th May


Not done a proper gig guide for the past few weeks, still not doing a proper one this week really.

This is all a bit thrown together, so I’ve likely missed a lot.
Doors are at 6:30, United Fruit on at 6:45. Ridiculously early if you ask me.
Francois & the Atlas Mountains, This is the Kit, Babe. Bristo Hall, Edinburgh.
Galleries, We See Lights, Letters. Captain’s Rest.
Juliebee Showcase Launch. The Curlers Rest.
Not a gig, but it gets a plug anyway. This is a launch night for a photo exhibit upstairs in The Curlers Rest. If you don’t make the launch then pop in, grab a pint, and check out the photos at some point anyway.
Launch gig for The Late Mornings, the new EP from The Porch Song Anthology. Having missed out on seeing The Porch Song Anthology up till now I’m really quite looking forward to this gig. There’s a video for the EP’s title track here.
Pinky Suavo, Vasquez, Aviation For Kids. The Wee Red Bar, Edinburgh.
Another gig I’m looking forward to, since I’ve not yet managed to see Johnny Reb or Edinburgh School for the Deaf yet.
The Douglas Firs, Le Reno Amps, The Scottish Enlightenment, Iliop. Old St Paul’s Church, Edinburgh.
Launch night for the Douglas Firs album, Happy as a Windless Flag. The album is very good, as is the line up for this gig.
The Twee Jamboree: We See Lights, Kathryn Edwards, Very Well, RM Hubbert. Pilrig St Pauls, Edinburgh. 2-5:30pm.
We See Lights launch their new EP, Twee Love Pop, with music, games, and a craft fair. As you do.
For Abel. Stereo.
Album launch gig. No idea who the supports are.
Cry Parrot 4th Birthday. SWG3.
Cry Parrot is 4, happy birthday! Full details here.
Hairy Area. Stereo. 11pm (Tickets)
Hairy Area are a bit of a supergroup, containing 3 members of We Were Promised Jetpacks, along with members of Endor, Lady North and Sebastian Dangerfield, with pseudonyms and a search engine unfriendly name. This is their first gig. You can learn a bit more about them by visiting our pal The Pop Cop.
Hazy Recollection 8. Stereo. 2-5pm
Supermarionation. Red Dog Music, Edinburgh.
Wee afternoon instore gig, kicks off around 3pm.
