Some things to keep you busy this weekend…

So, the weekend is once again upon us and we’ve decided here at Elba that it’s a weekend worthy frittering away the few remaining pennies that we carry in our pockets, before an eagerly anticipated payday!

This year’s Glasgow Film Festival launched last night and there is loads to get your teeth into over the next few weeks (see Kim’s preview here). A quick glance around Elba’s schedules shows that the Film & Music festival will be keeping us entertained over the next few weeks but you should check out the full programme as there are a few gems in there. This weekends showings of Faust/Alex Smoke, Howl and the aural assault of 65days of static appear to be highlights you might want to check out.

Tonight sees the return for a second month of the Barmellodie night at Bloc in Glasgow. We had a hoot last month spinning some tunes after great sets by Battery Face, The Douglas Firs and Le Reno Amps. Highlights included Kim getting a high five for playing Sonic Youth and Pavement ‘filling’ the dancefloor! Tonight’s music comes from The Scottish Enlightenment, Randolph’s Leap and Thirty Pounds of Bone who we won’t stop urging you to check out. He really is that blody good! Post band entertainment is provided by the Podcart DJ’s.

Enjoy your weekend whatever you may do and feel free to add any other things people should check out in the comments below!!
