As well as providing an invaluable source of information on all possible types of new Scottish music, fellow blog and Almost Scottish Fiction co-curator Scottish Fiction has started putting on regular gig nights. The first one was a huge success (review here) and the next promises to be another cracking night. Taking place at The Hug & Pint in Glasgow on 6 October, the gig features three bands: Now Wakes The Sea, Yutani and headliners Wozniak. It's a line up of such undeniable quality that you would be cheating yourself if you didn't go. Add to that the value - £5 a ticket - and you have no excuse not to go.
So who are the bands?
Edinburgh's Wozniak are a favourite of mine and their recent e.p. Auster is a brilliant thing (review). I'm expecting an ear drum worrying but spectacular set.
YuTaNI is the solo project of Connor Reid from Machines In Heaven and his debut album At The End Of A Day is one of the finest electronica albums I've heard this year (review). I'm really looking forward to hearing how it translates live - I've no doubt it'll be superb
NOW WAKES THE SEA
Combining lo-fi experiments, pop melodies and old guitars and broken pedals, Now Wakes The Sea's set promises to be something really rather intriguing
Having had a listen to the tracks above, I've no doubt that you now want to go to this gig. For tickets, again let me stress at a cost of only £5, go here http://www.musicglue.com/scottish-fiction/events/6-oct-15-scottish-fiction-presents-the-hug-and-pint/ and buy them. It's going to be a great night.
