A stark bald hello to you all. Featured act for this Saturday is the popular Tim Wylie. Tim is a regular performer around the Edinburgh music scene and also a prolific songwriter with folk/pop/rock influences coming through. He released his debut studio album “The Charm Offensive” earlier this year and is well worth a listen. You can catch some of it here: soundcloud.com/tim-d-wylie
It would be considered grotesquely hairless of you to miss this one.
And yes you better believe your ass that regular slots are up for grabs for all you equestrian performers. No horsing about with covers, original material only. Sign up from 7:30pm and OOTB will pin the tail on the donkey’s hairy bottom at 8pm.
Settle in your saddle of meat for a beefy ride down memory lane.

Hello every-ruddy-one. We are very pleased to have the fantastic Gerrybhoy play at OOTB this Saturday. He writes catchy, witty, memorable songs which are influenced by his Glasgow upbringing. It’s a rare opportunity to hear him play live, as he doesn’t play gigs very often, preferring to publish his songs online and produce other peoples work.
In his own words:
” Singerysongwritery type individual, a natural born weegieburger and lover of black country dogs. I have over 100 original songs posted on Soundcloud with the help of some wonderfully talented collaborators. To date I have considered myself as a bit of a virtual singer songwriter given my entire collection work is done in a studio and the audience web based.”
Sore open slots that require the healing power of artistic creation are available to all you doctors of musical aspiration. Sign up around 7:15pm-7:30pm and OOTB will open the operating theatre at 8pm.
Scratch your balsams to keep the hairs clean…

Hello all you flavoursome roast chicken and herb chinwags. We have a rather tasty treat on stage as this Saturday’s headline act. Originally from Avignon City in the South of France, Julien Pearly has been playing in Edinburgh music scene for 9 years. After completing an MSc Sound Design in 2005 at the University of Edinburgh where he released his 1st conceptual album “The Changing Man”, he worked freelance creating musical soundtracks and sound design for multimedia video projects. As a collective project Pundigrion (Album 2009) was the starting point for a creative journey exploring genres, live performances and cultures, playing with meanings and poetry in songs. Pundigrion Films followed shortly after to make unique cinematographic experiences around a poetic vision. Here’s a link to some of Julien’s music: soundcloud.com/julienpearly
Oh you know how it is, slots are up for the taking to show an eager-earred style audience your creative wares that have been sweated over many times. Sign up around 7:15pm-7:30pm and OOTB opens the performance floodgate at 8pm.
Will be insanely prickly to see you there…

Hello. This week’s headline act is worthy of grabbing your attention. The Woods (aka Johnny McFadzean) has played some remarkable sets at OOTB recently. His blend of romantic catchy ballads, lyrical singing and fantastic finger picking has been amazing us all. He will undoubtedly go on to do very well in the Edinburgh music scene – and if you come along this Saturday, you can say you heard him here first. Here’s a link to some of Johnny’s music: soundcloud.com/musicfromthewoods
Holy slots of divine creation are available to ride your musical chariots for fifteen-minutes on the sweet breath of celestial angels. Sign up around 7:15pm-7:30pm and OOTB will start the sermon at 8pm. Original material only for our dear parish.
Will be softly hairy to see you there…

Yo. No featured act this Saturday, so we have plenty of raw slots exposed to our wide-eyed audiences and performers for another musical gang-bang. More center-page holes in full display are up for grabbing and groping to the delightful yet mechanical moans of the lucky recipients. It’s a fifteen-minute ride on stage which usually covers about three sensual positions of tuneful ecstasy.
Sign up time is 7:15pm-7:30pm and then shortly after OOTB gets the bed rocking at 8pm.
Harden your stare to create a bolder step.

Hiya, how are you my little cream puffs? Well then my wee pets, OOTB have booked a worthy of your attention headline act for this Saturday. You see my little darlings, Kevin O’Rourke is well known figure on the Edinburgh grass roots music scene. He has been involved with many music projects over the years, notably in the band Underclass. He has since moved onto solo projects, and has delighted us at OOTB with his witty and highly melodic songs for a while now. Get yourselves down to the Kilderkin bar for a rather entertaining evening of original performances, you lovely wee choochter-woochters.
Sign up for a performance slot around 7:15pm-7:30pm, and we’ll raise the silky yet metaphorical curtain at 8pm.
Don’t forget that The Listening Room is back at the Blue Blazer bar every Sunday 7pm. Turn up a little earlier to sign up.
It’s alright to look on the left side of life.

Hey ho. No featured act this week means we have more open slots up for grabs. Fifteen minutes of stage time each is available so that you can show us your creative wares. Sign up around 7:15pm-7:30pm and then OOTB flushes the musical toilet at 8pm for an evening of thoroughly cleansed performances.
Our sister open mic event, The Listening Room, has returned home to the Blue Blazer bar. After a brief absence (and a stint at a different venue) TLR is now on every Sunday 7pm-9pm in its original and most natural environment. Well worth a visit.

We have yet another incredible headline act booked for you all this coming Saturday evening. A long-standing fixture of the Edinburgh songwriting scene and a well-known figure on the Scottish band circuit, Graeme Mearns is an established solo acoustic player and songwriter as well as an electric performer with both his own Legendary Graeme Mearns Band and high-paced punksters Joe Viterbo. Covering a wide range of styles from mellow jazz through abrasive alternative to full blown punk rock his highly original material showcases his inimitable guitar style and blackly humorous – not to mention foul-mouthed – poetic sensibilities. Albums range from the sombre acoustic tones of ‘So Far Away’ and the lo-fi eclecticism of ‘Real Life Cinderella’ to the rockier ‘Some Kind of Bliss’ and the simply weird ‘Into the Hollows’. Imagine Django Reinhardt getting drunk with the Stooges and you’re somewhere close.
Here’s a link to Graeme’s website: graememearns.com
Regular performance slots are available as per usual. Sign up 7:15pm-7:30pm and OOTB will press the red button of danger at 8pm. Original material only and free entry as always.
Always put winter socks inside your feet to avoid imperial inches.

Hello. We have a welcome return of a popular act around the Edinburgh music scene as our feature this Saturday. Lynne Roberts has come along to play at OOTB in the last year or so – and it has always been amazing: raw and rootsy stripped back blues. Lynne Roberts’ resonator slide guitar and robust vocal style are inspired by the likes of Son House, Robert Johnson, Big Mama Thornton and Muddy Waters. Lynne has already established an amazing reputation having played at Henry’s Cellar Bar and the Listening Room. If you haven’t heard her then you’re in for a treat. A must listen for anyone that loves blues, or music that has passion and soul.
Flapping slots of undulating soundwaves are up for the taking. Sign up as per usual around 7:15pm-7:30pm and the beginning sort of begins at 8pm. Original material only and free entry as always.
Don’t parp your tuba all over the new carpet,
