News, gigs and any other gubbins......

If you are free this afternoon and looking for an alternative to the footy and you live in sunny Glasgow, then you might want to check out Hazy Recollections over at Glasgow University Union (GU) as part of the West End Festival. Returning for it’s third outing, the bi-monthly event aims to showcase the finest in contemporary Indie/Folk acts from Glasgow and beyond. Taking place from 2pm-6pm, the line up includes Alex Cornish, French Wives, Aly Macrae, Kitty the Lion, The Cliftons, The Hidden Lane Choir House Band Findlay Napier and the Bar Room Mountaineers.

Next Saturday (3rd) see Kid Canaveral launching their debut album, 'Shouting At Wildlife', with a gig at the Roxy in Edinburgh. Support for the evening comes from The Come On Gang and the Scottish Enlightenment. With DJ slots from Cancel The Astronauts and yours truly, it promises to be a beast of an evening, personally I can't wait.

Another gig which is really exciting me this week is the latest Elba Sessions presents gig on Thursday (1st), featuring 'good friend of the blog' RM 'Hubby' Hubbert , Yusuf Azak and my boys Campfires in Winter. Two amazing acts for free, sweet! It's at the Liquid Ship, it kicks off about 9-ish and it should be one hell of a good night.

Tonight you can catch, Milk, Schnapps and Wilson Tan as they take to the stage at the Captains Rest as part of the celebrations of this years West End Festival. Apparently we can also expect to witness a collaboration of around twenty people crammed on to stage equipped with anything close to hand. All gathered around a huge and beautiful organ for a short improvised set and stage tage invasions are welcome. Who knows how they'll manage to fit anyone else on stage though.

Meanwhile down in Gourock (yes Gourock), Glasgow indie pop outfit, Ace City Racers will be headlining a gig at the Summer Pool Party. Sounds like something they should be having in LA, not fucking Gourock. If you live in that neck of the woods and you fancy some top tunes whilst having to witness lots of half naked locals then the party kicks off at 6pm and it's only £1.40 to get in, cheap as chips!.

If you're not in Edinburgh next week for the KC album launch, then you'd be advise to head down to Box in Glasgow to catch previous Fresh Meaters 'Night Noise Team' who are playing a free T-Break warm-up gig, with support from Patricia Panther and Digital Dinosaur.
