OOTB – Late But Not Never

Right, first of all, apologies for the tardiness of this week’s email, i do this in my spare time, and i’ve had a lot less of that recently. Still no news on the horizon for OOTB’s fabled new home, however there’s tons of stuff on this week, most of it all on the same nights, so here goes:

Sophie Bancroft is launching her CD tomorrow night (Thursday 28th Oct) at The Lot, in Edinburgh’s Grassmarket, it’s £10 to get in, and doors open at 7:30pm, over 14s only.

On Friday, remember to go to the McEwan’s Ale House Open Mic on South Clerk street, opposite the old Odeon at 9pm, all the cool cats will be there. 🙂

Then on Saturday 30th, at The Captain’s Bar on South College street, it’s the long awaited “A tip of the Hat to Leonard Cohen” night, featuring covers of Leonard Cohen songs by the following artistes: Norman Lamont, Fraser Drummond, Jim and Paula Igoe, Karen and Jess Austin, Jerry Anderson, Andy Hill, Simon Kempston, Kat McKenzie, Calum Carlyle, Nelson Wright and Rosie Nimmo. it’s FREE to get in, though a collection for charity (The Parents’ Circle) will be taken.

On Sunday, which is Hallowe’en, there are a ton of things on. For example, at Cabaret Voltaire at 7pm, it’s Six Storeys High, Ashes From The Wake and Three Long Words. £6 in advance and £7 on the door.

Same night, it’s Top Hat, Alistair W. McErlain & Theo Bard at Nobles’ Bar on Constitution Street in Leith, i think it’s free, but don’t quote me. And it’s a 9pm start.

Same night again, it’s The Listening Room at The Blue Blazer on Spittal Street, featuring Mark Wynn. 8pm for the open mic section, 9pm for Mark Wynn.

Same night, yet again, and this is the one i’ll be going to (though i am sure the rest are all going to be excellent nights too), it’s Dry The River, Lorraine Macauley and Matt Norris and the Moon, at Medina, which is on Lothian Street at 7pm. The FB event doesn’t tell you how much it is on the door, but my ticket cost £6 when i bought it off of Matt Norris.

And there’s one next week i have to mention too, on 3 November, it’s Cattle & Cane, Screen Kids, Caro Bridges and Dan Gillan, and that’s at The Lot in the Grassmarket. 7pm start again, this time it’s an 18+ gig and it’s £6/5.

Got to rush, sorry for the lack of personality in this email. I’m actually rushing out to yet another gig at The Lot tonight, it’s Hailie Beavis, The Last of Barrett’s Privateers, Kat McKenzie and Quickbeam. I would have given you the details properly but i left this week’s email too late and by the time you read this it’ll all be over long since. Okay, se you all next week! Take care, and remember to put your clocks back this weekend so you don’t miss all the gigs on Sunday night!
