We return as normal on Saturday 7th February at 8pm, so you’ve got another week to practice. See you then.
Well hello hello hello and bonjour. OOTB have booked a rather special headline act for this week. French-born Vincent Gauchot is a very talented instrumentalist who has a unique brand of guitar playing. Vincent has a technical approach to his finger-picking style that involves complex rhythms, chords and hammer-ons that are intertwined with percussive taps on the body of his guitar. Not only is he engrossing to listen to, but fascinating to watch as he combines all these techniques (and more) to produce works that are entirely musical and rewarding to any audience he plays to. You would be completely insane not to turn up this Saturday to witness a performance of top quality original music.
Here’s a link to his website: vincentgauchot.bandcamp.com
Performance slots are available as usual. Sign up from 7:30pm and OOTB starts the startling starter of stars at 8pm. Original material only ‘n’ that.
Thanks to ‘Dog On A Swing’ who stood in as featured act last Saturday due to Harry Harris having to suddenly cancel. Hopefully Harry will play for us sometime in the near future.
Will be quite squelchy to see you all there…
Hello. This Saturday OOTB have booked a not to be missed headline act. Harry Harris is an incredibly talented songwriter and performer who will have your eyes and ears glued to him for the duration of his set! He is currently on a mammoth UK tour and it’s an absolute pleasure to welcome him to Out of the Bedroom this weekend!
Since signing to Wild Sound Recordings in 2013, Harry has been building a reputation as one of the UK’s most original and formidable singer/songwriters. A ruthless guitar player with a voice that moves from the explosive to the intimate, he writes songs that grab you by the scruff of the neck and refuse to let go, with influences ranging from the great American songwriter Warren Zevon to bar-rock band The Hold Steady to Scottish folk singer Karine Polwart.
“I first met Harry Harris when he was a fresh, early teenage boy. He played us a song or two and impressed me, immediately, as a kid with focus and fearless dedication, both aiming at building songs. All these years later, I find the same focus and fearless dedication. This man can write and build songs and stories.” – Eric Taylor, Blue Ruby Music USA.

Sign up from 7:30pm if you fancy a performance slot and we’ll start the procedural proceedings at 8pm.
Will be rather ooooh-aaaaah-eeeeee to see you there…
Hello and happy new year. Or to be more accurate, here come another twelve months which are most likely to be a repeat of the same nonsense as last year with a few more pointless shenanigans added on.
This Saturday OOTB kicks off the first event of this new year with an entire evening of open slots. No featured acts are booked until next week, so a handful of more slots are up for grabs. It’s fifteen-minutes of stage time (ten-minutes if busy) and original material only. Musicians, poets, comedians and the like are all welcome.
Sign up from 7:30pm and OOTB will begin the begin at 8pm.
Will be great and equally fantastic to see you there…
Out Of The Bedroom is taking a little bit of time off for a festive break.
We will return on Saturday 10th January 2015 at 8pm.
Have a great time and see you all soon.
Hello. We have booked a former long-serving and one of the original OOTB committee members for this Saturday’s headline act. Nyk Stoddart is well known and well liked out on the Edinburgh live circuit and never fails to entertain his audiences. Nyk’s music takes you on a colourful psychedelic journey where his style veers from prog rock to as far as ‘Fake Jazz’. His lyrics are deep, intelligent and occasionally humorous sung with melody that compliments Nyk’s complex chord changes on guitar. Get yourselves along to OOTB to witness an experienced performer who you can’t help but like. Here’s a link to Nyk’s music: soundcloud.com/nykstoddart
There will be plenty of performance slots up for grabs too if you fancy a shot under the OOTB spotlight. We start at 8pm, but sign up sometime from 7:30pm to confirm a fifteen-minute booking. No covers remember, just your own self-written creations are worthy of our audiences’ ears.
This our last OOTB event of the year. We return freshly bathed with new haircuts on Saturday 10th January 2015 after the winter holidays.
May your bowels be full of tuneful festive cheer…
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”

Gaping wide open slots await your tightly wound G-strings. Sign up from 7:30pm and OOTB will start rubbing your brass nuts to a high sheen at 8pm. Original material only.
Will be like touching slightly under-cooked doughnut dough to see you there…
Good morning, afternoon and evening my daring derrieres. Please be aware that ‘Out Of The Bedroom’ is not a collective society of harsh bottom inspectors who are in the habit of coaxing shy people out of their sleeping quarters for a detailed examination of what goes on between musicians’ legs whenever there’s an Open Slots night. It merely means that there is no featured act this week, so OOTB has more fleshy slots up for grabs.
Get down to the Kilderkin bar and show us what you got. It’s fifteen-minutes of stage time, original material only and free entry as always. OOTB starts at 8pm, sign up time is from 7:30pm.
Will be rather eggy to say the least to see you there.
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.
