KA-POW! We’ve gone all comic book with the poster for this month’s Elba gig (Thursday August 5th), courtesy of Kyle Wood. (Thanks Kyle!)
So, here it is edition #9 of Elba Sessions Presents… at The Liquid Ship and our line up is headed by Lovers Turn To Monsters, who if you happen to be unfamiliar with, he’s a pretty generous dude so scoot on over to his bandcamp page for copious downloads!
Also, joining Lovers Turn To Monsters on the bill are two glasgow based singer/songwriters. Over the next few months, well, maybe even ongoing, we thought we’d try to bring you ‘People You May Not Have Heard About’ (might try and come up with a catchier title than this off the cuff effort.) and make an effort to find some new names that you may not be familiar with. Kicking this series off is Steve Cotter, who we have also just recorded a podcast with. Joining Mr Cotter on the Liquid Ship stage (well, floor) is Jennifer Andrew. Jennifer has been gigging low key in Glasgow for several years now and we’re amazed she isn’t a bit more well known! Her songs are lovely, honest songs and we’d recommend checking her out!
As usual, the gig is free to get in and doors are at 9pm.
Howdy people. This is another of those posts which start off with one thing in mind and then end up encompassing a whole load of stuff floating about my emails and head.
First up a shout out to fellow bloggers Peenko and Aye Tunes. They are having a first foray into the promotion game this Friday (27/4/10) with a rather good line up at the Captain’s Rest. Joining Campfires In Winter and Kid Canaveral are Mitchell Museum who have been wearing out my iPod in the last few weeks. Tickets are £5 on the door but if you contact either blogger in advance, they’ll knock a quid off the price cos they are just like that!
Also gigging this week are young upstarts The Girobabies who launch their brand new EP ‘Social Not Working’ with a launch party this Friday at The Buff Club. It all kicks off at 7pm and only costs the princely sum of £3. You can have a wee listen to the EP on their bandcamp page.
If the previous two gigs weren’t enough for a Friday night, there’s an absolute corker going down at our home from home The Liquid Ship. Gracing the basement once again is the wonderful Julia and the Doogans along with Stevie and The Moon and Lovers Turn To Monsters. Cracking line up, I would presume gig times will run as we run it, so first act will be on at 9pm.
Then on Saturday night, Eagleowl take on the Captains Rest in the second leg of their Edinburgh/Glasgow EP launch parties. Support comes from My Kappa Roots and Rob St John. You can pre order the EP on their bandcamp page.
The readers of this blog don’t need to be told by us that Glasgow’s music scene is buzzing and the guys over at UNESCO City of Music are putting together a music stream aiming to promote all that’s good and local going on in the city. They are looking for submissions which can be uploaded to their soundcloud page or sent in by good old fashioned mail to the following address;

The Glasgow Oxjam Team are on the lookout for people wanting to help out at this years Oxjam takeover, which will take place in October. There is more details on their myspace blog and you can download an application on the Oxjam website. I went along to the takeover last year and saw some great bands, Yahweh being one that stands out the memory. The best thing is that it’s all for a great cause.
