Peenko Presents: Kid Canaveral SXSW Fundraiser

Last night saw my former partner in crime Jim 'Ayetunes' putting on his first gig on his own and by all accounts it sounds like it was a resounding success, well done that man. Sadly I couldn't make it along as I was on babysitting duties, as much fun as it was sitting in watching mindless television I would have much preferred to have been down at Stereo seeing some find bands and gorging myself on free biscuits.

For my first 'solo gig' I have decided to start off with some familiar faces. For those of you who don't already know, our good friends Kid Canaveral have been chosen as one of the bands to go out and represent Scotland at this years SXSW Festival in Austin, Texas. As I am sure you are all aware, getting there isn't exactly cheap. So when they approached me about putting on a fund-raising show in Glasgow, it pretty much felt like a no brainer.

On Thursday the 24th of February we'll be hitting up Stereo in Glasgow, we've even manage to rope in former De-Rosa front man, Martin John Henry and Randolph’s Leap for the evening. As always it would be great if you could make it along to send Kid Canaveral off in style. In the unlikely event that you need some more persuading here's a few words from the band that'll twist yer arm...

"Kid Canaveral need some pennies to get to South By SouthWest. They tried battering Pudsey, but he only had small change. And no pockets. Come along and help get the Kids to the New World. Go on. Bring your friends for a top night of music. It won’t be like a telethon. Honest."

By now you are probably thinking that sounds awesome, where do I get tickets. Well help is at hand as tickets are on sale now, you can buy them directly from the band over on their Homepage or you can also get them from Tickets Scotland, both online and instore at the Glasgow store.

If you're into your Facebook malarkey, then you can also let us know that you're coming along by noting your attendance here. Last, but certainly not least thanks to the amazing Vicki Cole for designing that there pretty poster, yer a wee star!

  1. Oh bollocks, I've got something pencilled in that night already. But getting my favourites to SXSW... that's going to take some beating!
