Hello and stuff like that. This week’s headline act is the talented Andy Northall. A regular performer as a solo artist in Edinburgh and experienced member of the popular band “Infallible” where Andy plays bass guitar and sings. When out performing solo, influences of folk and rock come through mixed with Andy’s laid back ambient style of playing and singing. A seasoned musician and performer awaits to fill your unbending ears with top notch original music. Not one to miss this Saturday.
Here’s a link to one of Andy’s songs: reverbnation.com/andynorthall
Noisy and hungry available slots impatiently wait for your creative powers to fill with performance nourishment. Sign up from 7:30pm and OOTB will start feverishly consuming at 8pm. Original material only.
Will be like drinking magical water to see you there…

Yes yes yes, hello and all that jazz for goodness’ sake. Mhairi McCall is yet another worthwhile headline act booked for this week to melt your earwax-filled iron-clad hairy ears. Mhairi’s music has pop ballad elements to it with a little bit of comedy thrown in occasionally for good measure. She claims that she’s a “singer/songwriter who writes songs about what you shouldn’t write songs about”, and with one of her songs titled “Smelly Love” you probably get some idea where Mhairi is going creatively.
Here’s a link to some of her music: soundcloud.com/mhairi-mccall
Let’s hear some of your creative creations that have been created through the usual human excretion methods of blood, sweat, gravy, egg, urine and tears. Sign up from 7:30pm and OOTB will lay the necessary rubber stage mat on the floor at 8pm.
Will be biotexly clean and refreshing to see you there…

Hello. Gear yourselves up for a fantastic evening of live original performances and a featured act that is well worthy of your attention. Aino Elina has just recently relocated to Edinburgh and is already out there playing live with a small band she’s just put together. In her own words:
“Aino Elina is a singer-songwriter originally from Lapland, Finland. She is currently working on her debut album, which will be released June 2015. Aino Elina’s music is melodic pop music with elements of hip-hop, jazz, classical and world music. The songs are about life, love and relationships – in good and bad – with the emphasis on beautiful melody lines.”
Here’s a link to Aino’s recent single: ainoelina.bandcamp.com/album/sea-in-me-single

Hello and all that sort of thing ting-a-ling. More open slots are up for the taking this Saturday evening along with a great headline act who blew us away last Saturday, so we had to feature him this week.
Sam Morris is a very talented singer/songwriter with a great sense of humour. Armed with guitar and harmonica, his musical style has an Americana folk/country style sung with confident vocals. I’m not sure where he originally comes from, but he seems to have an American accent (sorry Sam if you’re Canadian or of other descent). Online there’s not much information about Sam, so I’m just going on what I heard from his three songs last week at OOTB. Also online there are lots and lots of Sam Morris’s out there and I could only find his regular Facebook page where I stole and edited the above photo for you all to see. So no links to any of his music. You’ll just have to get along to the Kilderkin bar and hear for yourselves this emerging new talent.
Sign up from 7:30pm if you want some stage time and we’ll whistle-start the performance train at 8pm. Original material only if you please.
Will be utterly unshabby to see you there…

Hola todo el mundo. What a way to end the week during this continental weather by joining OOTB on Saturday evening for more original performances and yet another amazing feature act. Hailing all the way from sunny Livingstone, Mark Deans will be entertaining us with his own brand of acoustic songs. Elements of pop, country and folk are present in his music singing about his life experiences with a bit of Scots accent coming through. He’s well experienced playing live, so expect a great performance. Here’s a link to his Facebook band page: facebook.com/MarkDeansMusic
Sun-drenched and bleached open slots are available to all you well maintained Edinburgh celebrities who are hungry for a bit of stage time. Sign up from 7:30pm and then OOTB will start the bottom inspecting at 8pm. Original material only.
Will be warm yet strangely fuzzy to see you there…

Hello. This week OOTB have booked a very popular Edinburgh singer/songwriter for your discerning ears. Darren Hendrie is a hard-working musician who not only has a solo career gigging around Edinburgh, but also fronts the alternative rock-driven “Darren Hendrie Band”. You can catch him hosting Bannermans open mic every fortnight and he released several studio recordings late last year on You Tube. So we are looking forward to an acoustic set of his own songs this Saturday evening.
Here’s a link to some of Darren’s music: youtube.com/user/darrenhendrie/videos
Open slots for all you performance robots are available. Musicians, poets, comedians, magicians and the like are all welcome. Sign up from 7:30pm and we’ll start the evening of original talent at 8pm.
Will be a number valued somewhere between lissajous figures and infinity to see you there…

Sign up from 7:30pm and we’ll apply pain to the performance headache at 8pm. Original material only and that sort of thing ting-a-ling.
Will be is you is or is you ain’t to see you there…

Well well well, OOTB have reached another milestone in our thirteen and a half (approximately) year history. Our six-hundredth event this Saturday is going to be helped along by our booked headline act. Bobby Murdoch hosts the Wee Pub open mic located in Edinburgh’s Grassmarket with great success and growing public reputation. Bobby’s songs have an alternative acoustic rock flavour sung along with sweeping confident vocals. He usually down-tunes his guitar a tone which already sets the mood and feel of his music. Don’t miss out on a performance that’s original and entertaining.
Open slots are available as usual so that you can help us celebrate our 600th event. Sign up from 7:30pm and we’ll count up to 600 at 8pm for an evening of brilliant original acts.
Will be 599 times wrong not to see you there,

Hello. Winter is fading before our very eyes and OOTB have booked a special feature act for this Saturday to welcome in a new spring. Irish-born Native Oak is touring Britain with his distinctive brand of music and we’re delighted he has stopped by for another time at Edinburgh’s OOTB. His music is raw gutsy folk at heart, but has a laid-back ambient feel sung along with deep emotional vocals that take you on a personal journey. Witness this genre of music at its best cutting straight to the point with no unnecessary fluff needed, at the Kilderkin bar of course. You would be simply daft to miss out. Here’s a link to some of Native Oak’s music: nativeoak.bandcamp.com
Open slots are up for grabbing as usual. Sign up from 7:30pm and OOTB will separate the wood from the trees at 8pm. Original material only.
Will be bouncy fun fun fun to see you there…
