Well of course all anyone in Scotland could possibly be talking about this week would be this Saturday’s BAD FUN at Henry’s Cellar Bar (with an actual cocktail menu these days, would you fucking believe it) where we will host the fabulous Black Tambourines, the amazing North American War and the awesome Honeyblood.
We recorded a Toad Session with the Black Tambourines last time they were here, and it is bloody excellent. If you fancy some videos, an interview and some free tunes, go here. And hopefully see you on Saturday.
Other than our own amazing lineup (cough cough) there will be another fine gig on Saturday night, with Edinburgh School for the Deaf and Battery Face joining last month’s BAD FUN headliners Plastic Animals at the Voodoo Rooms for a Strange Fish Records-themed Limbo.
And finally, in something which is not a gig but nevertheless entirely music-related, Sofi’s Bar down in Leith will be screening the LCD Soundsystem film Shut Up and Play the Hits on Thursday night. Entry is £3, which will go towards Mtondia Orphan school in Kenya. Plus, of course, they’re a bar so, y’know, they have beer and stuff.
And that, I think, is it. Did I miss anything excellent?
[EDIT: Christ, I am a bellend. I managed to survey the Electric Circus's listings and miss that the Robin Guthrie Trio (that lad fae the Cocteau Twins) is playing on Thursday, along with Mark Gardener from Ride. Apologies, I am a muppet.]
