OOTB 527 – 29th June – Jack Blimey!

Jack Blimey“Blimey!”, exclaimed the landlady when she heard her tenant sing. Apparently that’s how this Saturday’s featured act got his name. A talent from the Edinburgh music scene, Jack Blimey has been a regular (and now a committee member) of OOTB for some time now. His music is a unique energetic mix of eclectic beat poetry and 1960s spy theme music underlined with a touch of dark humour. He has an acoustic guitar phobia, so it’s normal to see Jack adorning one of his electric guitars which adds to his unique style and sound.

Why not influence a whole audience to say “cor blimey” in harmonic unison after witnessing one of your fine performances? OOTB starts at 8pm, but turn up with your masterpieces sometime before 7:30pm to sign up for a fifteen-minute stage slot for a night of original music and creative works.

A recently started open mic event increasing in popularity that’s worth mentioning is the ‘Antihoot Open Stage’. It’s on at 8pm every Monday at Henry’s Cellar Bar (16a Morrison Street, Edinburgh) hosted by Lach. Acts such as songwriters, comics, poets, misfits, magicians, performance artists, burlesque are all welcome. Sign up time is 7:30pm. Lach also hosts his songwriters’ night every Tuesday, same place, at 7:30pm where acts can be invited from Monday’s open mic to do a featured set. Well worth checking out both of these nights for a good variety of music and talented performances.

Just uploaded some pics of OOTB 526. Have a look on our Photos page.

Right oh well then, be there or be spreading yourself far too thinly everywhere…

TB 😀
