Weekly Round Up (21/11/10)

Monday - Kicking off the week the Scottish Enlightenment talked us through their amazing new album 'St. Thomas. The Plimptons also took on Fresh Meat action, in addition there was also The Sexual Objects session for Marc Riley.
Tuesday - another cracking session from The Phantom Band
Wednesday - Let's Talk About Trees were my 42nd Scots Way-Hay club entrants
Thursday - there was even more Let's Talk About Trees this time it was a session for SubCity. On top of that I had a wee interview with my new partner in crime Halina Rifai as I got her to tell you a bit about our new venture, Olive Grove.
Friday - there were some cracking freebies, including stuff from French Wives, FOUND and Badly Drawn Boy.
Saturday - Meursault take on Daniel Johnston's 'Hey Joe' in We've Got It Covered.

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

The National are in Glasgow on Friday to play a show at the Academy, personally I can't wait for this one. Sadly if you haven't gotten yourself a ticket you're a bit stuff as the gig is sold out, you can however catch the band spinning some tunes at Pin Up Nights 7th birthday at the Flying Duck. Also playing live on the night are local starlets Skinny Villains, For Abel and Strawberry Ocean Sea.

Before I wrap things up for the week I just want to let you know about a wee project from a gentleman by the name of Jer Reid, who also plays in Issho Taiko Drummers. He is embarking on a project called the 'Winter Cycle', in which he plans to do a 31 day series of improvised duos with a different collaborator each day. He has arranged an array of artists to get on board with the project including Luke Sutherland, Rosalind Masson, RM Hubbert, Xana Marwick, Joseph L. Quimby Jr, Cheer, Christine DeVaney, Iain Campbell and Wounded Knee. The series of gigs kick off at midday from Sunday 5th December 2010 through until Tuesday January 4th 2011, with the majority of the gigs taking place at Stereo in Glasgow. Performances on December 25th, January 1st and January 2nd will be at the Flying Duck (man that is some dedication). Further details on the gigs can be found on his website.
