OOTB 444 ft Chris Yendell!

Hi again everybody,

This week at OOTB, as well as a lot of open floorspots which will be filled with the cream of Edinburgh’s live performers, we’ve also got Chris Yendell performing the featured act slot. He’s really good, and it’s always a good atmosphere when he’s playing, so come along, you’ll have a good time. It’s 8pm as usual (7:30pm to sign up for a floorspot) and that’s at The Montague Bar on St Leonards Street (formerly The Maltings) tomorrow (Tuesday 4 Oct), and it’s free as usual.

Also this week, it’s Secret CDs on Wednesday 5 October, at the Voodoo Rooms for only £3 you get four excellent acts performing live! The acts this month are: Miasma, Bob Hillary, Pol Arida, and Emma Forman. All four of these acts is great, in my opinion, and it’s a very eclectic selection too. Plus, Pol Arida plans to simultaneously broadcast the gig in Second Life (TM), so if you want to spend some time in cyberspace, you can do that on Wednesday too.

On Friday it’s the very enjoyable Ale House open mic as usual (at the Ale House on Clerk Street at 9:30pm on Friday 7 October), and it’s free of course.

And on Sunday it’s the Blue Blazer/Listening Room, on the corner of Spittal and Bread Streets. This week the featured act is Calum Carlyle, trying out a bunch of new songs, recently written as part of 50/90. Come along and hear a lot of songs being performed for the first time. The open mic section starts at 8pm, and the featured act is at 9pm and it’s free.

Another thing i wanted to mention is the Labelled Independent podcast. It’s a real collection of actual independent artistes, very interesting to listen to, and if you or someone you know is an independent artiste, you could be featured. Check it out. To subscribe for free on iTunes, search the iTunes store for ‘Labelled Independent’ or follow this link through the Apple website: http://bit.ly/labelledindyitunes (you can also listen via Podbean – http://labelledindependent.podbean.com/ – but subscribing is much easier via iTunes).


So the first week of November is a big week for us, as it’s the tenth anniversary of the first Out of the Bedroom. To celebrate this, we’re having a “covers night” on Tuesday 1 November at The Montague Bar, please try to learn a song (or songs) by another OOTB performer, to perform on the night. You’re still allowed to do your original stuff of course, but we’d encourage you to do covers of your favourite songs from OOTB as well. And that’s on the 1st November, so you’ve not got long to get organised!

But Wait! Also that week, on Friday 4 Nov, at the Cabaret Voltaire Speakeasy from 7pm til 10pm it’s the big tenth anniversary OOTB extravaganza! We’ve got four live acts, and some other fun stuff too, plus the ubiquitous silver bag of dreams. It’ll be a fiver entry, and the four acts are: Rossco Galloway, Fraser Drummond, James Whyte, and Caro Bridges And The River. Well worth it. 🙂 A special mention should go to James Igoe of Secret CDs fame, also a founder member of OOTB, without whom this event would not have been possible.

And that’s it, see you out there in musicland, people, take care till then,

Calum Carlyle
Out of the Bedroom
