OOTB – The Fury And The Passion

It’s Out of the Bedroom 402 this week, only 98 OOTBs to go till the next “hundred” celebration. this week it’s Furious who’s our featured artist, so come along to The Tron this Thursday and hear Furious exemplifying his music for half an hour, and also soak up the eclectic vibe of the other OOTB performers.

Before i go any further, let me tell you that Visual Opinions reviewed OOTB 401, yay! You can read the review here, you can see a huge array of photos of the night here, and if you just can’t get enough reviewage, they also reviewed our special event The Secret Bedroom a couple of months ago too. I think they’re reviewing the next couple of OOTBs too. If you want to be an OOTB reviewer, then get in touch with Visual Opinions through their website, or talk to the reviewer at OOTB this Thursday.

Now, other interesting events… On Saturday 24th July, at The Lot, you can hear (for £5) Matt Norris and The Moon, Audigy, Andrew Norquay and Dan Gillan. In the words of their facebook event: “It will be a brilliant night of acoustic music, please come and support our very talented local artists.” and that’s an early gig, 7pm start, 10pm finish.

On Friday 23rd, you can see Cam and the HP at The Radical Road at 229 Willowbrae Road at 9pm, not sure if it costs to get in, but it’ll be extra special because they were due to play a gig elsewhere last week and it was cancelled, so i am sure they’ll be on extra top form this week.

I know it’s on Thursday too, but anyway, Graeme Mearns Band, DLS, Shields Up, and DATS are all playing at the teamFUDGE Leaving Party (which is also the Muckle Sandwich issue 4 launch party, i think) on Thursday 22 July. It’s at 7:30pm at Henry’s Cellar Bar. Should be a riot actually, but officially we still think you should be at OOTB instead.

There’s festivals on every week too, it being summer, this coming weekend it’s the Wickerman Festival down in Kirkcudbrightshire. Quite a few Edinburgh acts are playing there, mainly the ones i know are on the acoustic village stage. I’ll be playing there at 12:40pm on Saturday with Sam Bradley on bass, and Andi Neate is on on Friday, anyway, if you’re going to the Wickerman fest, check the acoustic village stage out, it’ll be good, i guarantee it.

There are lots of other events on this week, obviously, there’s The Listening Room at The Blue Blazer on Spittal Street/Bread Street, it’s on Sunday, get there before 8pm if you want to play in the open mic section of the evening. I played the feature slot there on Sunday just gone, and it was an awesome experience, i can’t recommend this open mic night enough, to be honest, it’s great. Tonight (Tuesday) the Cruz Bar on Leith’s Waterside are having a free open mic night too, their nights sound like they’re picking up, so maybe check that out too. There are a lot of other music events on too, facebook’ll tell you, now it’s summer there’s events spilling onto the pavement on every street corner! Anyway, see you on Thursday!
