COMPETITION - Win tickets to Kid Canaveral, Night Noise Team and The Cinnamons

Why run one competition at a time when you can do two?
I've got another pair of gig tickets to one lucky winner, this time for Friday's gig at The Captain's Rest with Kid Canaveral, Night Noise Team and The Cinnamons.

To enter just fill in the blank and email your answer to
Question: The name of Kid Canaveral's last single was You Only Went Out To Get _____ Last Night.
Competition closes at 5pm on Thursday when a winner will be drawn at random and informed they've won by email.

This Week's Gigs: 6th - 12th September

This week's gig guide should probably be sponsored by paracetamol, and is brought to you between bouts of being so, so cold, napping, and vomiting. In other words I'm ill, so this might be a bit shoddy this week. After writing the intro on Sunday I stopped being able to process information, so it is also late. I'm a wee bit better today, thanks for asking.

Miaoux Miaoux, Wounded Knee. Sneaky Pete's, Edinburgh.
After an ace gig in Glasgow last week Edinburgh gets to have a wee shot of Miaoux Miaoux. His new single, Knitted, is out now and available at gigs or online. Buy an actual CD if you can, the hand knitted sleeves are lovely and proceeds go to charity. Wounded Knee is pretty splendid too, so this should be a good gig.

Martin Docherty. Box, Glasgow.
Iain Morrison. The Real Mary King's Close, Edinburgh.
Singer-songwriter Iain Morrison (formerly of Crash My Model Car), will be playing a small intimate gig in the historic underground passageways of Mary King's Close in aid of Oxjam, a month long national music festival organised by people who know and love their local music scene, with all proceeds going to Oxfam UK. (Actually, I think this is already sold out)

Sing-Kill-Worth, Boygirlanimalcolour, Mechanical Smile, Inner City Magicians. Stereo.
We like Boygirlanimalcolour loads round here.
Suspire, Mr Kil, Juan Pablo, Anavris. The Buff Club.
Dave Hughes. MacSoreleys.
Launch gig for Dave's new EP, Seven Songs, which you can hear and buy here.

Bands I like, put on by people I like. I've got a competition to win a pair of tickets to this gig, go here for details.

Much goodness on show here. I've got a pair of tickets to give away for this too, go here to enter.
Come On Gang!, FOUND, Jesus H. Foxx. The Caves, Edinburgh.
Launch gig for the fab new Come On Gang! single, Fortune Favours The Brave, which I gushed about a wee bit here.
I know next to nothing about Slarffenland or Turning Plates to be honest, but The Social Services and How To Swim are both good.
Esperi, Noiserv, Finn Lemarinel, RM Hubbert. Secret Location, Glasgow. Buy tickets
The Remnant Kings, Tam's Railways, Black Riot Valves. The Wee Red Bar, Edinburgh.

The Year of Open Doors, with Alan Bissett, Tawona Sitholé and Allan Wilson. Platform.
Another Year of Open Doors event, and another good one from the look of it. Entry is free, you can find more details over on Facebook.
