Words & Photo: The Captain It's a Wednesday night and what better to do than go to a gig on the Cowgate! Out of the line up, I've only ever heard Echo Arcadia before because they were on the final episode of "The Captain's Log" the week before. However, I have heard great things about … Continue reading Live Review: Eyre Llew, L-Space & Echo Arcadia @ Sneaky Pete’s 08/03/17
Words & Photo: The Captain It's a Thursday night and I'm in Glasgow to see Trivium for the second time.

Words: The Captain It's Wednesday, which means those "mid-week blues". However, these are easily cured by some awesome live music. So here I am again in one of my favourite venues The Electric Circus to see two awesome bands. First, we are treated to alterntive Edinburgh rockers SeaOfCrowns. They introduce themselves and tell us to "come over … Continue reading Live Review: Pronto Mama w/ SeaOfCrowns @ The Electric Circus 03/06/15
Words: The Captain It’s another one of those shitty “summer” nights in Edinburgh (you know, pouring rain and wind that knocks grannies over) and I’m cosied up in City 2 for Cavalier Youth Promotions’ FIRST EVER GIG (certainly THE best place to be tonight)!

Words: The Captain Once upon a time, in a city not so far away, a small crowd gathers at a venue. The city in question is *drum roll* EDINBURGH!

THANK GOD IT’S FRIDAY! It’s the weekend, so it’s time to let your hair down and shake your thang. The Electric Circus is a brilliant place to do so.
On the menu tonight:
Starter – The Rich: Edinburgh Rockers
Main Course – Dune Rats: Awesome Australian Stoner Pop
To wet our appetite, The Rich rock up to the stage and make it theirs. We are greeted with “Hello guys, how you doing?” (Audience interaction: tick). They are fucking awesome! With a good drum beat behind them and some remarkable vocals, these guys are amazing. They also have pretty good stage banter and at one point the drummer gets a drink delivery. Their music interchanges between loud and heavy, to showing their softer side.
Imagine rock, jazz and pop had a baby and this is The Rich. Sugar and Salt mixed together with sweat. Fucking brilliant!

Review: Leah Curtis.
It’s another chilly evening in Edinburgh (typical Scottish weather raises eyebrows) and this time I’m at The Caves! There are already a handful of people eagerly awaiting some live music and we don’t have to wait long! Shortly after 7:30pm, Gwenno takes to the stage with an awesome techno loop with a bit of extra synth thrown in for good measure. For the entirety of her set, she is shrouded in darkness, the emphasis on the music and a collection of videos projected onto the screen behind her. Each video fits perfectly with each song, ranging from a bird’s eye view of beautiful lakes and forests to a montage of people working in all kinds of industries. What I love is that it’s almost like a very long and live music video. Her music is interesting (and by interesting I mean wonderful) with deep and heavy…
