First Gig of the New Year: Plastic Animals, The Yawns & Garden of Elks at Henry’s, Sat 19th January
So yes, we are slowly creaking back into life, here at Song, by Toad and our first gig of 2013 is already approaching fast. Next weekend – i.e. Saturday 19th January – we will be back at Henry’s for a fine lineup, including one of our favourite Edinburgh bands Plastic Animals, and two very, very new bands indeed, barely yet to play a gig never mind one through in Edinburgh.
Both Garden of Elks and The Yawns emerged very late last year, the former with a single on Soundcloud and the latter with an album on Electropapknit Records. It’s a fine lineup of excellent guitar music, and apparently Henry’s has new owners and has enjoyed a lick of paint since I was there last, so I am rather looking forward to returning.
