It’s That Lifeboat Time of Year Again
Caring about music is nice, but it’s pretty easy. We like stuff, we don’t like stuff, we grievously insult people with different opinions from ourselves… the usual tedious carping.
However, once a year we get the chance to do something a little bit more, and to actually make a bit of a contribution to the world: Mrs Toad organises the Stockbridge collection for the RNLI – the lifeboats for you acronymophobes – and on Saturday 28th April we will be asking you for a little help.
Every year we collect for the RNLI between 10am and 4pm here in Stockbridge and every year our friends and various music allies turn out to help us. We are very grateful for the help, and once again this year we will be asking for it. Usually the incentives we offer involve roast lamb and plenty of wine, but this year we can add another gentle inducement:
On the evening of the 28th April Edinburgh’s sonic alchemists The Leg will be launching their new album An Eagle to Saturn at a mystery venue in Edinburgh’s Old Town, and if you choose to be so nice as to help us collect for the lifeboats beforehand then Mrs. Toad and I will pay for your ticket to the album launch show. As well as plying you with roast meat and wine.
So in other words, if you don’t turn up and help out, you must be a pretty dismal sort of fucker; shame on you. Tickets for The Leg album launch can be bought in person from me, from the band, or from Avalanche Records in the Grassmarket.More: rnli, The Leg
