OOTB 397 – Susanna MacDonald…

This week we’re being treated to a feature set by Susanna MacDonald. Her CD “Some Misconceptions” was bluesbunny.com‘s CD of the month last month. Susanna’s got a full size cabaret show on during the Edinburgh Festival which I strongly urge you to go and see, it’s got my recommendation anyway. This week at OOTB however, expect a more intimate and acoustic gig from Susanna, though i’d be surprised if there aren’t a few surprises as well!

There’s also the usual open mic slots, chances to win big with the Silver Bag o’ Dreams and much more zany originalness will also be available this Thursday, an evening of fun for all the family. Also DON’T FORGET, we’ve got Out of the Bedroom number 400 coming up on the 8th of July, and you’re all welcome to participate in the extravaganza. It’s covers night, and you’re particularly encouraged to cover a song by another OOTBer. Start rehearsing now! 🙂

Okay, we’re onto the “also happening this week…” section. First of all, come along to Electric Circus tonight, it’s twelve bands for a fiver, proceeds go to the charity Cash For Kids, and my (Calum Carlyle) shiny new band will be playing a four song set (sometime after about 8:30pm we think). The evening starts at 6pm, finishes at 10pm, and it’s at Electric Circus on Market Street.

If you don’t fancy that, then consider going along to the Roxy Art House on Roxburgh Place for mayhew‘s EP launch. They’re playing at Glastonbury, so it’s bound to be packed! 8pm start, 11pm finish and it’s £2 admission.

Then on Wednesday it’s Doctor Ruby’s at The Jazz Bar on Chambers Street, featuring Black Diamond Express, Aaron Wright and the Aprils and The Electric Ghosts. Doors: 8pm, entry £4/£3 concessions, or £3/£2 (before 9pm).

On Thursday it’s OOTB ft Susanna MacDonald of course, and then on Friday, Word of Mouth are having another open mic night, they’re always great fun, so come along. It starts at 7:30pm and it’s at Word of Mouth cafe, 3a Albert Street (just off Leith Walk). It’s free to get in and it’s BYOB.

This Saturday, as part of the Leith Festival, come along to Great Junction Street Studios at 125 Great Junction Street for their Open Day. there’ll be booze and music, and also cakes, hand made by the now-famous Georgie from Neoviolet! Admission is £1, doors open at 2pm, Also, there’ll be plenty of live music of course, as well as some spoken word performances. Performers in full are: Mutant Lodge, Euan Currie, Steve Callaghan, Sons of Fionn, Women’s Writing Group, Sacre Noir, Steve Redman, Graeme Smith, Black Sea Sailors, Calum Carlyle & Sam Bradley. So, Mutant Lodge is on at 2:30pm, Sacre Noir are on at 4:30pm and I’ll be playing at 6:30pm with the awesometastic Sam Bradley on bass. I really recommend you stick around for the whole day, because i’ve heard most of these acts and liked them a lot.

Then on Saturday night, if you’re up for going to Glasgow, it’s Ballboy and Eagleowl performing at Pivo Pivo. Admission’s £8.50 and it starts at 8pm.

As usual, there’s the aptly named McEwan’s Ale House Open Mic on Friday from 9pm, and on Sunday, come along to The Blue Blazer for the ever popular Listening Room at 8pm, it’s also free. This week the featured act at The Listening Room is Juan x Juan.
