Last Reminder: Aye Tunes Presents

By now you are probably sick to death of me mentioning this, so you'll be glad to hear that the first Aye Tunes Presents gig takes place tonight, so I'll soon shut up about it.

If you've somehow missed the details, then playing tonight live in Stereo are Boygirlanimalcolour, Kochka and Trapped Mice. There's a free sampler of the bands here.

Doors open at 7pm, entry is £5. If you hurry you can stil get a £3 ticket online, but I'll be taking those down soon.

The first twenty or so people through the door will also get free biscuits, so come along at the start of the night if biscuits are something you enjoy.

I've also made up a small bunch of copyright violating CDs for the evening, one of which is yours in return for a donation to Marie Curie Cancer Care. I'll be collecting for the charity tonight, so bring some spare change.

Please come along, and say hello.

I'll now be quiet.

This Week's Gigs: 17th - 23rd January

No prizes for guessing the main focus of this week's gig guide... It is a reasonably quiet week for a change, which is good for me.

Graeme Ronald (Remember Remember). Mono. Free.

Glasgow Slow Club: Miaoux Miaoux, Matthew Scott. Bloc. Free.

Aye Tunes Presents #1: Boygirlanimalcolour, Kochka, Trapped Mice. Stereo. £3/£5
I'm putting on a gig, have I mentioned it already? Tickets are £3 in advance, available from me here, or from the bands. There's a free sampler of the three bands available to download here too. Doors are at the early time of 7pm, so swing by early if you can. To encourage early attendance there will be free biscuits on the go for the first 20 or so people that turn up, and maybe other wee surprises too.
Barmellodie: Le Reno Amps, The Douglas Firs, Battery Face. Bloc. Free before Midnight.
Kicking off around 11pm, so you can come to Aye Tunes Presents first, you can find out more here. I'll be there, probably horrendously drunk.

I don't think I'm spilling any great secrets if I say that I'd asked So Many Animal Calls to play on Friday, but we had to scrap that plan due to this gig. Go see them here instead then. Dear Mountaineer are also very promising, and the small bit of Little Fire I've heard sounds good too though I don't know a lot about the others.
Since me and Armellodie going and putting on our own gigs isn't quite enough multi tasking for one week Song, by Toad are getting in on the act too, with the first of the Ides of Toad series of gigs. As you'd expect the line-up is a good one.

Cargo Crate Launch. The Arches, 3pm.
Not a gig really, but our pals at Cargo Publishing get a mention any time they have something on. This is the Glasgow launch of Cargo Crate, Scotland's first ebook/print on demand imprint. Visit the Facebook page for all the info.
