ORDINARYSON / ROY’S IRON DNA

Enjoy the two faces of music from Ian Thompson and his array of talented friends.

Ordinaryson play acoustic rock songs with a soulful twist whilst the more electrofied Roy’s Iron DNA delve deeper into synth pop and indietronica. 

Ordinaryson
Regular performers at the legendary Music Gallery open mic nights perform tracks from their debut album and new songs from their forthcoming album due for release in 2015. Having recently been signed by Edinburgh College’s in-house record label the Berwick lads will play songs presently being supported by BBC Introducing across the UK.
 
Roy’s Iron DNA
The anagrammatic musical moniker of the same musicians perform a late night set of electronic indie with live beats and samples alongside a full live band. Having wowed crowds at summer festivals across Europe over the last few years the Borders boys will blast out some bangers for the dark winter nights.

Joe Allen
Joe specialises in crafting acoustic pop songs with a dark twist, combining twinkly guitar lines with bleak and brutally honest lyrics, drawing influence from the writing styles of the likes of The National and Frightened Rabbit.

CURSES at Coalition’s 8th Birthday

Curses aka Drop The Lime, boss of NYC’s Trouble&Bass label, returns for an astonishing seventh time.

Coalition actually predates Sneaky Pete’s, serving time in Red Vodka Club before the un-chic shabby venue was somehow transformed into the taste making hub of the scene it is now. Coalition has always championed bass across all genres, and 8 years deep is as frequently packed as ever.

Pop Exchange #5: Jack and the’ / How to Swim / Miyagi

“Pop Exchange presents their biggest line-up to date with the triptych Jack and the’ (Edinburgh) / How to Swim (Glasgow) / Miyagi (Edinburgh)!

Venturing into a place where pop, chamber music and jazz happily meet, Jack and the’ will launch a second EP extracted from their forthcoming second album Melody Cycle. “A celebration of music so joyful that it is impossible to resist to its infectious melodies” (Popnews).”

“Well-known in Edinburgh for their late night sessions at the Jazz Bar, Miyagi and their 5-part harmonies provide a refreshing take on 60s music, from pop to folk via psychedelia. Their latest album might be called Electrosaurus, but “Miyagi are no dinosaurs – they are the future.” (Daily Record).

A landmark in the Glaswegian music scene, How To Swim will perform their acclaimed 2014 record Niagarama for the first time to an Edinburgh crowd. “Pop does not get any better than this!” (RingMaster).

Braw Gigs Presents: SACRED PAWS

Sacred Paws, featuring members of Trashkit and Golden Grrrls, Rachel Aggs and Eilidh Rodgers create a seriously unique combo of angular post punk and African highlife stomp.

Anyone who caught their brilliant set at Cry Parrot’s closing party in Stereo last December will know not to miss one of Glasgow’s finest live acts and Rock Action’s most recent signing. Support from Leith’s experimental soothsayer, Wounded Knee and DJ Yves.

“Raw Soweto high-life riffs and rolling Afrobeat grooves are filtered through post-punk sass and ramshackle K Records charm. It’s an utterly joyous sound, the duo trading giddy melodies and righteous chants over febrile rhythms and chunky, infectious guitar. Judging by the dancing feet and smiling faces, Glasgow has a new favourite band.” – The List
