This Saturday, 19 June 2010, is a very interesting day for music in Scotland. As we previously talked about, Edinburgh is hosting two EP launches on the same night.
The OK Social Club play Cabaret Voltaire to launch their third EP ‘That Howden Sound’. Tickets are £5 and available from Royal Mile Tavern or from the band.
Penguins Kill Polar Bears play Sneaky Pete’s to launch their debut EP ‘Dawn’. Tickets are £5 and available from WeGotTickets.com.
In addition to these two events, Edinburgh will also see the arrival of Happy Mondays legend Bez’s new band Domino Bones, playing Maggie’s Chamber, above the Three Sisters, followed by a DJ set from Bez himself. The night is brought to us by Colossal Promotions, also who are also actively promoting gigs for Leith Festival and the Edinburgh Fringe. Support comes from The Vibe, The Stalls, Tams Railways, All at Sea and Kolumbia. Tickets are £8 in advance from any of these bands, or £10 on the door.
And by some strange coincidence (or possibly licensing laws) all these events kick off at 19.00.
Finally, fledgling internet radio station Gap Radio officially launches this Saturday to stream music online 24/7. To celebrate, they have organised a launch party at Harley's in Bathgate, which will include performances from Tango In The Attic, 4 Day Weekend, Fred Astaire's Boots, Bambou Enfants, The Secrets and others still to be announced. Tickets are available on the door.
