The Trailer Park SaintsOut of the Bedroom #669 is coming from Woodland Creatures in sunny Leith this Thursday, 17th May from 8.00 p.m. to 11.00 p.m.  Entry is free and sign up for an open mic slot is from 7.30 p.m., with 10 to 15 minutes per act depending on the number of performers. Original music only for the open slots and all music lovers, poetic hearts, flower children and hay fever sufferers are welcome to our three hours of musical paradise on Earth.

Feature act for #669 is The Trailer Park Saints. The Trailer Park Saints, created by Jonas and Paulius — two Lithuanian natives, friends, and musicians — is a fresh attempt to combine various experimentations in song writing with similar experiments in guitar-heavy soundscapes. Inspired and influenced by the likes of Radiohead, Pink Floyd, Leonard Cohen, Nick Cave, and Swans, The Trailer Park Saints have set out to form their own unique way of blending it all together. Jonas has also played Out of the Bedroom using the alias Skip, the Android.

Host for the evening James Igoe started the evening off with ‘Inge’s Eyes’. There was a comment about the depth and maturity of his voice tonight; this was entirely down to him having just recovered from a heavy cold! Still, he was happy with his performance [Ed’s note: James, it’s virtually impossible to review your own performance!]. Read the remainder of this entry »

Host for the evening was Tina Louise Avery who started off with a new song ‘Weave The Sea’. As those who follow Tina know, her songs reflect her love of water. This elegant, uptempo number featured some beautiful singing and was a welcome addition to her strong watery repertoire. I could vividly picture the old man weaving by the sea. ‘Travel Writing’, about a couple growing old perhaps not happily, was performed very pleasantly indeed. ‘Francis’ was about Francis Cadell, a Scottish Colourist who painted seascapes. This was in waltz time and was evocative of Cadell’s paintings (sample lyric: “there I’ll be seated on the chair painted red”). Read the remainder of this entry »

Ali TodOut of the Bedroom #667 is this Thursday, 19th April. We had an excellent 666 – keeping the forces of darkness at bay (most of the time, we shone the lights in the audience more brightly) – and are again at Woodland Creatures from 8.00 p.m. to 11.00 p.m. ? Entry is free and sign up for an open mic slot is from 7.30 p.m., with 10 to 15 minutes per act depending on the number of performers. Original music only for the open slots and all music lovers, dreamers, writers, knitters, creatives, anti-folkies, folkies and layabouts are welcome to come along and enjoy the evening.

Feature act for #667 is the mighty Ali Tod. Ali is classically trained, but has a genre-defying style that is far flung from the classical guitar. With heavy influence from artists such as Rodrigo y Gabriela and KT Tunstall, Ali has developed a unique blend of percussive guitar and loop mastery, to create an original sound that gets hands clapping, hips shaking and feet stomping.

The review for #666 on 5th April can be found on the OOTB website and Malcolm’s photos from the evening can be found on our Facebook page. Line up was: Jim Bryce, Euan Glasgow, Pink Kudu, Impossible Songs, Bill Phillip, The Old Town Rambler, Suzanne Dyson, Michael, Skip the Android, Savona, Ali Tod, feature act: Scott Candlish.

Was 666 a spooky or otherwise cursed night for OOTB? Not at all, simply a terrific evening of old and new performers and a wide range of musical styles making for a very fine April evening. Read the remainder of this entry »

Scott CandlishOut of the Bedroom #666 is coming this Thursday, 5th April! According to some translations of the Bible, 666 is the number of the beast… who, apparently, was the dastardly Emperor Nero.

Original music only for the open slots and all music lovers, dreamers, writers, potters, cheesemakers, meek people and fallen Roman emperors are welcome to come along and enjoy the evening.

Feature act for #666 is Scott Candlish. Singer songwriter Scott Candlish is fresh from the release of his second EP in 2017 ‘Home Away from Home’. Originally from Melbourne Scott moved to Edinburgh in the last 12 months and has been hitting the city’s music scene by storm. His influences include Ryan Adams, Ben Howard, Bon Iver and The Tallest Man on Earth.
