OOTB 457 – Dave Keir! (he’s really impressive by the way)

OOTB Presents… Dave Keir

Oh dear, well i’ve been through the wars this week, not that that’s particularly relevant here, but anyway that is the reason for this slightly tardy and rather short OOTB email this week.

Okay, OOTB is now on Saturdays, at The Montague Bar (practically across the road from St Leonards Street police station), and it starts at 8pm. We’ve got a half hour featured act every week, and at least eight open floorspots. If you’d like to sign up for a floorspot, 7:30pm‘s probably the latest you can do that because the slots are allocated on a first-come/first-served basis by the host of the evening on the night, no phoning in advance or getting a friend to sign you up. PLUS we don’t allow cover versions. You can perform whatever you like (at the discretion of the bar, that is, and the law, of course!) so long as you wrote it yourself. Also it’s free, and the standard is usually very high, so bring your friends and have a listen, this is not just a night for performers!

This week the featured act is Dave Keir. I’ve heard him several times and got his CDs and he’s very very good. He writes intriguing songs, and his fingerstyle guitar playing really reminds me of John Renbourn amongst others. His 45 minute set at the Listening Room a couple of months ago was great and his set at the four hundred and fifty seventh Out Of The Bedroom this coming Saturday (14 January!) will no doubt be at least as good. Don’t miss it, honestly, for free this is pretty much the best gig in town this Saturday! 🙂

And on Sunday another free one, this time at Medina (ahem i mean The Third Door). We had an excellent band at Edinburgh Unlimited on Wednesday just past, called Small Feet, Little Toes, and they will be playing a FREE gig at the Third Door on Lothian Street on Sunday at 7pm, here’s a quick preview of their music: http://www.myspace.com/rachelandersonmusic

And the Ale House open mic and the Listening Room at the Blue Blazer are on as usual, tonight (Friday) at 9:30pm, and on Sunday at 8pm, respectively, they are always good.

And that’s it, sorry if i missed anything out i am highly preoccupied with emergencies at the moment and can’t really devote hours and hours to this email any more, though i will continue to do my best to bring you regular roundups and previews of the OOTB weekly nights, as well as choice listings details and other goodies like free downloads. DO forward this email to your friends if you think they would be interested in this stuff, and get them to sign up on the mailing list themselves (which they can do at www.outofthebedroom.co.uk of course).

Thanks, and keep on rockin’!
