Words: The Captain
Thursday night, gonna take ya to the top…pretty baby (okay it’s not Saturday, but who gives a monkeys?). This is the penultimate Teviot Underground band night before the summer break (booooo!) and four acts are to grace our presence this evening.
First comes the lovely Unkeepable. He gets on stage, grabs his guitar and introduces himself “My name’s Steve & I’m gonna play a few songs” (Steve is his real person name). Straight away, I am drawn to his voice and guitar playing skills. His voice has a gruffness to it, but also a sweetness. I am particularly drawn to his song “Pedestal”. It’s beautiful, it’s amazing, and it’s wonderful. He sounds a wee bit like Ed Sheeran, but with a twist. He is definitely worth a listen and a like!
Next are the relatively new, but no less lovely The Micro Band. With 3 vocals and 7 members in total, these guys are #awesome. Upbeat, funky and feet tappingly good. Imagine the Powerpuff Girl’s dad when he’s creating them, only he adds: Jazz, Rock ‘n’ Roll and Funk into the mix and 7 awesome people pop out. Being still quite new, they haven’t got any music online yet, so all the more reason to go and check them out live to see and hear for yourself how awesome they are!
Eeeeep! Now it’s time for the gorgeous Annie Booth, accompanied by her band. Her voice is beautiful and her talent is flawless. I have seen her before, but not with a band, so I was interested to see (or rather hear) what she sounded like. It was simply amazing. Her set is short, but so, so sweet. For her final song, her band mates leave the stage, leaving her to play us out of her set on her own.
Finally, Cousin Kenny hit the stage. With a good beat and a rock ‘n’ roll riff, these guys are a great headliner. They are a tight band, each knowing exactly what they are to do. Strong vocals make them explosively good. Unfortunately, I only caught their first few songs because busses are shit and I had to run for my last one. Ho hum!
The FINAL Thursday’s at Teviot Underground band night before the summer break consists of:
The Warehouse Announcement,
Robert, Knox and Wize
