It seems to be a week of fairly exciting news in these parts. Not content with news of a James King gig yesterday, there’s plenty of other things happening in the not too distant future.
Firstly Kristin Hersh will be making not two but FOUR appearances in Edinburgh in August. First off is a special Unbound appearance in the Spiegeltent at the Edinburgh International Book Festival on 16th August followed on the 17th by a panel appearance (presumably also at the Book Festival). Then there are two Paradoxical Undressing shows at Cabaret Voltaire on 18th and 19th. If you haven’t read her book, ‘Paradoxical Undressing’ could I respectfully suggest that you obtain a copy pronto?
Spare Snare have just released a digital single, the modestly titled ‘I Am God’, the “video” for which you can watch this instant:
It’s available from the usual online retailers.
You can now purchse the Edinburgh School for the Deaf LP ‘New Youth Bible’ from Bubblegum Records here. The album launch is at Sneaky Pete’s in Edinburgh on Friday. You can also buy tickets online now for their show in Dundee on 30th June here. Spookily enough there’s a Spare Snare connection in The Snare’s Adam’s other band Man Without Machines support.
Oh and Cancel the Astronauts are playing a free gig at the Woodside Inn in Glenrothes on Saturday (18th). And they’re going to be playing for an hour. So it’s the best chance for ages to hear ‘Late In The City’ again. Hopefully.
