Well well well. The Last weekend of May 2018.
Before I spill the beans on that a quick recap of what you missed on Friday 18th May - My Birthday. Yeah I was working like a mad man and how good was the Live session tonight....well for those who came and seen it for their own eyes.
Space Elevator made the trip all the way from London on part of their tour for their ONLY SCOTTISH DATE. Many wanted to come, many knew about it, Many didn't bother to click on and check them out and many didn't fancy it etc etc etc
It could have possibly been one of the hundred reasons that I'm now accustomed to hearing when trying to push a superb new band to the club that no one has heard of in the area before or folk not wanting to take a chance which I appreciate as it was £10 a ticket ....however for the few dozen that did come along and trust this old codger - you can thank me later as many did on the night. What a performance - Yet again many saying it was the best band we've ever had.
I would go on but I won't.
Sat 19th The Doors of Perception Rolled back the years with a fantastic tribute to THE DOORS to a near sell out audience. The Full LA WOMAN Album was performed along with some absolutely cracking classics. Great night. Support was from Alan Smithee and Scott Nisbet.
So back to the last weekend of MAY
Friday 25th - CONCRETE KINGDOMS / TOMORROW is LOST / STONEFACE.
Three superb originals ROCK bands line up for just £6. Considering the quality it's an absolute bargain. I would highly recommend you go forth and click to find out about all three.

Saturday 26th May - STRAIGHTEN OUT #1 STRANGLERS TRIBUTE
10th ANNIVERSARY TOUR
STRAIGHTEN OUT are the premier Stranglers tribute band out there...with an extensive set-list that spans two solid hours as they re-create the 'early years' sound of The Stranglers, complete with a keyboard rig that is the same model as the original used by Mr. Greenfield himself in the 1970's...!
The growling bass sound and the quirky guitar riffs are all there to be heard as is the dual vocal 'attack' from the two frontmen a la Burnel-Cornwell as they rip through all the classics 'Peaches', 'Hanging Around', 'No More Heroes', '5 Minutes', 'The Raven', 'Walk On By', 'Straighten Out', 'Down In The Sewer' and many more as they cover virtually the whole of the first three Stranglers' albums and beyond...
Straighten Out - live and unleashed - will take you on a nostalgia trip that transports you back to those raw, powerful, exhilarating times when The Stranglers emerged through the quagmire of mediocrity to produce some of the finest tunes ever written...Straighten Out will put you back in that place...!
