Although the cat has been out of the bag for a few weeks now, we’d like to take this opportunity to formally announce our involvement in this year’s West End Festival in our home city of Glasgow. We will be playing 3 nights at Oran Mor, a converted church situated at the junction of Byres Road and Great Western Road in the heart of G12. The dates are:
14th June : Electric Chestnuts This evening will feature well known material presented in the full-on familiar manner. Expect electric guitars, loud drums, amplifiers, shouting. Support for this show will be the magical constructions of Remember Remember. A must see!
15th June : Acoustic Chestnuts This evening will feature well known material naturally suited to acoustic instruments. Expect acoustic guitars, slower songs, pipes, slippers, warmth and quietness. Support for this show will be provided by the fantastic Snowgoose. Not to be missed!
16th June : Live Obscurities This evening, as the name suggests, will feature slightly lesser known material presented in an electric format. Expect album tracks, b-sides, cover versions, the gnashing of teeth, the odd chestnut. Support for this show will come from the unique treasure that is The National Jazz Trio of Scotland. Be there early!
n.b. Oran Mor has a 10pm curfew; there is a club after all live music events. Usually doors will open at 7pm, the support will take the stage at 7.30pm, Teenage Fanclub will be on at 8.20pm (or thereabouts).
