Freeloadin' Frank at Woodland CreaturesOut of the Bedroom is welcoming acts old and new to our new home at Woodland Creatures. The evening runs from 8pm to 11pm this Thursday and if you like good music that comes straight from the heart, and head and other parts(!), then Out of the Bedroom is the place for you.

Feature act for OOTB 647 is the legendary Freeloadin’ Frank. Frank is an OOTB regular and the humourous, personal politics of the lyrics to his songs show that he is frank by both name and nature! Frank started learning guitar during the 1980s and has one CD ‘The Magic Cornflake’ to his name.

Sign up at 7:30pm for an open mic slot for up to 15 minutes. Original material only and free entry as always.

See you there…

OOTB 645 – 20th April – Cera Impala

Posted 12/04/2017 By admin

Out Of The Bedroom’s third night at Woodland Creatures on Thursday 20th April is going to be a special one! The feature act is someone who very rarely plays intimate concerts in Edinburgh and we feel privileged to have her playing at OOTB this evening.

Songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Cera Impala is a banjo-, ukulele-, and guitar- wielding mama who oozes wild style. Her voice is unique yet timeless, with writing style just as magical. She creates songs that feel instantly familiar. Born in Flagstaff, Arizona she has made many places her home since ’94 when she left – from Portland, Oregon, to New York City, to all over California, Olympia, Washington – which explains the eclectic mix of musical styles in her songwriting. Cera performs with her hand-picked band, The New Prohibition and can also be found performing and recording with indie-rock band Dark Green Tree and singing with the queens of harmony and sass, The Bevvy Sisters.

There may be some special guests in the audience too… perhaps even a future / serving politician or two singing along! Expect some members of the audience to have something of a Green hue about them.

Slots as always are up for grabs if you fancy a bit of stage-time. Sign up from 7:30pm and we’ll get the first act on at 8pm. Original material. Our feature act Cera Impala will be on at 9pm.

Will be great to see you there…

OOTB 644 – 6th April – Aaron Wright

Posted 31/03/2017 By admin

Out Of The Bedroom got off to a good start at our new venue last time with thanks to those who turned up to perform, watch and listen. For this Thursday we have booked an amazing and well known headline act.

Edinburgh’s very own Aaron Wright is a rather talented and charismatic singer/songwriter whose music has a mix of alternative folk, country and pop amongst other influences. Aaron released his first EP ‘Behold A Pale Horse’ which features his popular song ‘Go On Yer Self’ and later followed by his self-titled debut album. More recently Aaron released his second album ‘Flying Machine’.

He’s had radio-play from the likes of Billy Sloan and Vic Galloway, is signed to a Glasgow-based record label and has played festivals all over the country. So it looks like we’re in for an incredible performance.

Here’s a link to Aaron’s music: soundcloud.com/aaron-wright-uk

Slots as always are up for grabs if you fancy a bit of stage-time. Sign up from 7:30pm and we’ll get the first act on at 8pm. Original material.

Will be great to see you there…

OOTB 643 – 23rd March – New Venue!

Posted 18/03/2017 By admin

It’s all go and all new for Out Of The Bedroom. We would love you to come along to help us celebrate our new venue at Woodland Creatures (260-262 Leith Walk) this Thursday. That’s right, we moved from our once monthly Tuesday evening to Thursday evenings now every fortnight.

To start our first evening we are dedicating it to a night of open slots, so there should be enough for all you performers out there to have a bit of brand new stage time. We’ve kept our usual start time of 8pm and signing up for a slot is from 7:30pm. You even get a free drink for performing!

OOTB is open to all varieties of performers as long as any material used is original.

Another reminder that Hailey Beavis’s night The Critter Session runs fortnightly at Woodland Creatures on the other Thursday which means that there will be a seamless transition of talent every Thursday from now on.

Good vibes and good times are ahead and it will be fantastic to see you all there.

OOTB 641 – 14th February – Open Slots

Posted 03/02/2017 By admin

This is not a love song. It’s an entire evening of open slots this Valentine’s Tuesday, which means without a feature act we have a handful more slots up for grabs. Grabbing slots is apparently quite common on such a special day.

So come on down to the Outhouse and play us some of those self-penned emotional songs. Sign-up from 7:30pm and we’ll start the first act at 8pm. Original material only.

Will be like tongue-tied French kissing to see you there…

adam-nalyor-2Out 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…

OOTB  😀
