With the musical element of the Fringe once again appearing to have slipped into abeyance, Back Garden Promotions (Edinburgh label Song, By Toad in association with several local musicians) is putting on a series of small gigs at Henry’s Cellar Bar next month.
Pale Imitation Festival has, it has to be said, a cracking line-up. Given that admission each evening is just £5 (with the exception of the Malcolm Middleton show) and that there’s a season ticket for £25 (covering all NINE shows) all shows will likely sell-out quickly. Here’s the full line-up:
Yep, there’s at least a couple of pseudonymns in there.
If I had the time and didn’t live an hour away, I’d be investing in a season ticket but since I’m double booked on a couple of the dates already and I need some semblance of a normal life during August, I will likely end up going to none.
Which would be a shame as, repeat, it’s a cracking line-up. The only thing I would say is that it’s a fairly predictable line-up for this sort of thing in Edinburgh.
