OOTB 583 – 1st November – The Woods

Posted 29/10/2014 By admin

the woodsHello. 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…

OOTB 582 – 25th October – Open Slots

Posted 22/10/2014 By admin

pokie2Yo. 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.

OOTB :D

Kevin O'RourkeHiya, 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.

OOTB :D

OOTB 580 – 11th October – Open Slots

Posted 09/10/2014 By admin

slot-car-trackHey 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.

Look underneath the breakfast table to find the top of the morning,

OOTB :D

GraemeMearnsWe 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.

Lynne RobertsHello. 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,

OOTB :D

quantum-double-slitYo. Another week and another Saturday beckons for another round of open slots. The OOTB stage is open to any performer who has penned their own works and who would like to perform to an appreciative audience in the cosy back room of the Kilderkin bar. Musicians, poets, comedians and the like are all welcome.

Sign up time is 7:15pm-7:30pm, then OOTB kicks off at 8pm for an evening showcasing some of Edinburgh’s finest talent. Will be great to see you there.

Flick the switch to eject the glitch.

ao13aSpring onions and shallots are not good for fleshy open slots as they sting lots if smeared across freshly forming blood clots. OOTB have had a long enough festival break now, and it’s time to get things ‘n’ stuff rolling along. This Saturday there is no featured act, so more slots of stage time are up for grabs.

Sign up around 7:15pm-7:30pm and the curtain rises for a new season of showbizzy creative talent at 8pm. Original material only of course, so let’s hear how you’ve managed to think ideas from inside your head that form analogue packets of artistic information into the real physical world.

Our bowels are empty, but our stomachs are full…

OOTB :D

OOTB 575 – 26th July – Mike Donaghy

Posted 23/07/2014 By admin

Mike DonaghyHello. This will be our last OOTB until after the festival. So we’re really pleased to feature Mike Donaghy – a fantastic Irish Singer-Songwriter who has visited us a few times in the past.

In his own words:
“Mike Donaghy has been making a name for himself in Ireland and the UK since releasing his first EP (January never came this year) back in 2009. His music and writing has a very inimitable sound, occasionally being linked to folk, Americana and bluegrass. Mike grew up to the sounds of Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, John Prine, The Beatles and Van Morrison being played out from every sound system in the house. He was also fortunate to grow up in a musical family, and a home never short of instruments, and his father working as a TV producer and director, and more importantly, on music shows. He remembers vividly sitting round the fire at home joining in and learning songs with such legends as the Clancy Brothers, June Tabor, Ralph McTell, Keiran Goss, Sonny Curtis and long time friends the Sands Family”

So why not come down and bring your songs and enjoy our pre-festival bash?

Here’s a link to Mike’s website: www.mikedonaghyofficial.com

Gaping wide open slots await your tightly wound G-strings. Sign up 7:15pm-7:30pm and OOTB will start rubbing your brass nuts to a high sheen at 8pm. Original material only and free entry as always.

Be there or be savagely minced into a shepherd’s pie horse-meat scare…

OOTB :D
