OOTB And Aboot

Posted 14/09/2010 By admin


Another week’s gone past! Hope you’re all recovering from the Festival by now. Just got a few events to tell you about this week, firstly it’s the Regent Showcase tonight, it’s in the Regent Bar, which is at the top of Abbeymount and the end of Regent Road. Starts at 8:30pm and it’s free to get in. The musical selection often has a considerable overlap with Out of the Bedroom, it’s always been a good night in my experience, go along, you’ll like it. 🙂

I’m always telling you about the McEwan’s Ale House open mic on Fridays at 9pm, and The Listening Room at the Blue Blazer on Sunday starting at 8pm, and i’m mentioning them again because i still keep hearing from people how good these nights are (though i’ve been too darn busy to go along for a while myself, hope to rectify that soon!), so yeah, go to those, if you can, they’re great fun.

Next thing to mention to you is a gig at the Voodoo Rooms Ballroom on Monday 20th September, featuring Hannah O’Reilly, Neoviolet, Caro Bridges, Dan Gillan and Cal Roberts, and it’s £5/4 to get in (which is a bargain for five acts of this calibre. What can you buy for a fiver these days? Seriously…)


Wheels (slowly) turn behind the scenes as we breathe life into the old OOTB horse yet again, more news on that as it happens, in the meantime, relive the good old days on our YouTube channel! Say hello if you see me at one of those gigs i just mentioned too. 🙂

Our feature act this week is Rosie Smith. Born in Glasgow, Rosie returned to her parents’ native Edinburgh a few years ago for university, and finally got around to her longtime goal of learning to play the guitar. Rosie’s first Out of the Bedroom performance was also her open mic debut, back in February, with her first three original songs. She has since expanded her repertoire of melancholy songs, often reminiscent of the sad Scottish folksongs, which she is also a keen performer of. Rosie’s other main influences are Joan Baez, Simon and Garfunkel, and Billy Bragg. Most of her music centres around a poignant and mournful expression of love, heartbreak, and healing.

OOTB #675 took place on 6th September. Photos from the evening can be found on our Facebook page. Line up was: James Igoe, Suzanne Dyson, Danny Emerson, Tina Louise Avery, Rosie Smith and feature act Gareth Herron.
