Doune the Rabbit Hole
Given I have now sworn off festivals with a population over about five thousand, I think it’s only fair that I start noseying around some of the smaller ones and seeing what they have to offer.
I have loved Homegame and Pickathon, narrowly missed out on the Insider and Kelburn, but I think I will be making it to this one: Doune the Rabbit Hole on the 30th and 31st July. I don’t really know the organisers, but they’re two young lads from Glasgow taking a chance, apparently, and my friend Ed from the Roxy is now helping them out too.
Add to that the fact that there are two Toad Records bands on the bill – Meursault (who are at Truck this weekend too) and Inspector Tapehead – and two Fence ones too – Francois and the Atlas Mountains and Rozi Plain – and I think that this will do very nicely for me indeed. Oh and Doune Castle is, I believe, the location of the insulting Frenchman and the English knight whose mother was a hamster and whose father smelled of Elderberries (see below).
And if you fancy it you can get discounted tickets from me, here, now. Generally they’d be £48, but you can get them from the link below for £38 if you fancy coming along.
