Out Of The Bedroom is open to musicians, comedy, spoken word magicians and the like. As long as any material used is original. So it will be great to see a variety of talent this Tuesday evening.
Sign-up from 7:30pm and the first act will kick off at 8pm.
Looking forward to seeing you all there…

This Tuesday is our last OOTB of the year and we celebrate with a Christmas special. No feature act as Santa was all booked up, so it’s an evening of open slots for all you festive performers out there.
We’ll even break our rule, a little, of original material only to allow any Christmas song to be performed if you desire to do so.
Sign-up from 7:30pm and the first act of our last event of 2016 will start the sleigh-bells at 8pm.
Will be quite jolly to see you there…

Out Of The Bedroom is ready for another evening of top notch performances after an excellent celebration last week for our fifteenth birthday. Thanks to everyone who turned up to play, watch and listen.
This week we have a booked an amazing feature act for you all to hear. Adam Naylor describes his music as ‘bright and energetic acoustic rock with a Scottish twang’, which we got a taste of when Adam played a couple of songs at our birthday last Tuesday. Well worth catching this time round for a half hour set of his self-penned creations.
Open slots are available as usual. Sign-up from 7:30pm and we’ll get the first act on at 8pm. Original material only.
Will be like skating with socks on a well polished floor to see you there…

Out Of The Bedroom this Tuesday celebrates fifteen years of hosting original live performances in Edinburgh from so many talented artists who have turned up to play. We certainly have the reputation for being Edinburgh’s longest running open mic and bound to have many more years of OOTB events to come.
It’s an evening of open slots, so come along from 7:30pm to sign-up and we’ll start the first act at 8pm.
Hopefully faces new and old will turn up to help us celebrate a long successful run of ‘originals only’ open mic events. Out Of The Bedroom is open to all performers as long as any material used is original. Apparently, there may be some cake going around as well.
Will be greatly fantastic to see you there…
OOTB 😀 😀

Looks to be a great night and will be good to see you there too…

This is our last Out Of The Bedroom event until after the Edinburgh Festival, but we’ll return soon in September. We have yet another incredibly talented headline act for this Tuesday evening who is known as Ashlee Lovebox.
In her own words:
“Ashlee Lovebox swears a lot and sings about sex and drugs and rock ‘n’ roll. Without the sex and drugs in case her parents are listening. She also tries to be funny. Her songs are truthful with a childish naivety and drawing on her experiences and the crazy situations she has found herself in. Her influences are wide and varied but she finds most inspiration in strong solo female singer songwriters who emphasise their uniqueness, including Regina Spektor, Kimya Dawson, Tori Amos, Skunk Anansie and many more.”
Open slots are there for the taking if you’re up for a performance on the OOTB stage. Sign-up from 7:30pm and the first act starts soon after at 8pm.
Will be rather good to see you there…

Yo. Two weeks of a rather grey and wet July, so far, have just about gone by. It’s time for another round of Out Of The Bedroom with an amazing headline act to brighten this Tuesday summer evening.
Finland-born Aino Elina moved to Edinburgh last year and has quickly built a reputation as a stand-out musical artist. Her music is emotional, lush and haunting where Aino in her own words describes her creations as “indie pop with elements of electronica, hip-hop, jazz, folk and world music. She writes both in English and Finnish – sometimes mixing the two languages together”.

This is a top-notch performance at the Outhouse definitely not to be missed.
Open slots are there for the taking on the night. Sign-up from 7:30pm and we’ll start the first act at 8pm. Original material only.
Will be like gratefully gargling grapefruit juice to see you there…

Ooooft my god, is that two weeks of our precious lives gone already? Let’s celebrate the passage of time by introducing our feature act for this Tuesday evening…
Kevin Laing is originally from Fife and has been singing and playing guitar for a while. In the last couple of years he has been working on his own material, so Kevin is quite new to the singer-songwriter open-mic scene. He doesn’t have any particular musical influences and is quite intrigued when people say his songs sound like Radiohead one day, Gordon Lightfoot the next, and some other people whose music he hasn’t paid attention to. Each song is the result of playing around with chords and images, and he is often surprised with the varied results. One of Kevin’s more recent songs has a salsa influence which draws from his rather wary experience of some dance classes.
Fifteen-minute performance slots are there for the taking if you fancy some stage time. Sign-up from 7:30pm and we’ll start boppin’ and a dancin’ at 8pm. Original material only.
Will be hip-swivellingly great to see you there…
