OOTB 611 – 13th June

Posted 12/06/2015 By admin

Hello. Whether whatever during this rare summer weather if OOTB have a feature act or not for this Saturday, open slots are up for grabs as per usual. If there ain’t no feature act then a handful more of those slots will be available to you which will make things a little more breathable through the Meadow’s stinking barbecue burnt meaty air.

Sign up from 7:30pm and we’ll apply apples to the performance application at 8pm. Original material only and that sort of thing ting-a-ling.

Will be like wearing cheap creaky science-fiction costumes to see you there…


OOTB 610 – 6th June – Ross Neilson

Posted 03/06/2015 By admin

Ross NeilsonHello, good morning, good evening and welcome. Another headline act is set to grace our awaiting stage this Saturday. Ross Neilson has been writing, recording and performing his songs over the last ten or so years now. With influences ranging from Neil Young, Pavement, Tom Petty and Elliott Smith – Ross always manages to put his own stamp on his music. His latest studio album entitled ‘Dark Side Of Morning’ was officially released last year and shows Ross as an emerging talent in Scotland. Do your good self and your good friends a good favour and come on down to the Kilderkin bar for a great evening of home-grown music. Here’s a link to some of R. Neilson’s music: soundcloud.com/ross-neilson

Open slotties for all you musical hotties are available for picking up a fifteen-minute date. Sign up time is from 7:30pm and shortly after the tuneful fanfare of live music rides the creaky bed-springs at 8pm. Original material only.

Will be like sneezing into an aloe-vera dipped handkerchief to see you there…


OOTB 609 – 30th May – Ian Sclater

Posted 28/05/2015 By admin

Ian SclaterGood hello-ings to you all. Another week and another Saturday evening looms for another talented headline act. Oh yes, you better believe it. Ian Sclater is a regular and popular performer in Edinburgh singing self-penned songs of his own life’s experiences, and has a long seasoned involvement with gigging on this planet. Ian’s music is a healthy mixture of varying styles including pop, rock and folk. He is also headlining this Sunday at The Listening Room in Edinburgh if you can’t catch him at OOTB this Saturday. So no excuses really to witness a worthy songwriter this weekend.

Here’s a link to Ian’s music: soundcloud.com/iansclater

And oh yes uh-huh, free open slots are available as per usual. Sign up from 7:30pm and OOTB will make the planet spin a little faster, perhaps, at 8pm.

Will be like sniffing peppermint oil to see you there…


OOTB 608 – 23rd May – Andy Northall

Andy NorthallHello 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.

Will be like drinking magical water to see you there…


OOTB 607 – 16th May – Mhairi McCall

Posted 13/05/2015 By admin

Mhairi McCollYes 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…


OOTB 606 – 9th May – Aino Elina

Posted 07/05/2015 By admin

Aino ElinaHello. 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

Sign up from 7:30pm and the ‘bel canto’ journey will start at 8pm. Original material only.

Will be flubbery wubbery to see you there…


OOTB 605 – 2nd May – Sam Morris

Posted 30/04/2015 By admin

sam morrisHello 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…


OOTB 604 – 25th April – Mark Deans

Posted 23/04/2015 By admin

Mark DeansHola 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…


Darren HendrieHello. 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…


OOTB 602 – 11th April – Say Or Do

Posted 10/04/2015 By admin

Say Or DoHello. OOTB have booked an amazing feature act this Saturday heralding all the way from New Zealand. Say Or Do, fronted by singer/songwriter Sam French, musically has distinct acoustic folk flavours played with a mellow feel to his guitar style. Sam’s heartfelt vocals take his audiences on an emotional journey of his life’s experiences, and has released an album “Watching The World Pass By” which is currently available for download.

Well worth a listen, here’s a link to that album…sayordo.bandcamp.com

Open slots are available as always. Sign up from 7:30pm and we’ll watch the performances pass by together from 8pm.

Will be finely powdery to see you there…
