Little Victories #6: Erin Rae, Al Shields, Harry Harris
DOORS 7:30PM // £Ticketed ( Tickets here or OTD)
Little Victories is a boutique record label and promoter based in Edinburgh, Scotland.
Since it all started in 2014 they’ve put on shows across the UK, from tiny cafes, to candlelit churches and cavernous theatres.
After five fantastic shows in Leith Depot, Little Victories is back for its monthly music night, featuring another roster of incredible artists.
"Before we tell you about the truly star studded lineup for our seventh show, let us tell you about what we like, and what you’ll get from these shows. Tunes. That’s basically it. We like folk, we like pop, we like indie, we like rock. We like people who write songs, we like people who interpret songs. We like what we like, and we think you’ll like it too.""
ERIN RAE - Erin Rae & The Meanwhiles - Erin Rae & The Meanwhiles first came to our attention when they opened for the brilliant Cale Tyson, and we're delighted to be welcoming them back to Edinburgh for a special headline slot. Classic Americana all the way from Nashville - she's the real deal.
AL SHIELDS - Al Shields is a regular on the Edinburgh scene, and even popped up to sing backing vocals for Rebecca Loebe at our Little Victories night back in April. He sings world-weary country songs with a voice that feels like road movies.
Harry Harris - one half of the Little Victories team will be opening the night with songs from his forthcoming EP, Andre The Giant.

Haunt You Down #3 DOORS 5:00PM - 8:00PM// £Free/Pay what you want
Haunt You Down welcomes you for the third time to our banquet of beats; feeding the soul, the mind, and the dancing feet.
Come with a friend, stay for a boogie, have a few and enjoy our Sunday session at the Leith Depot. We will be joined by the beautiful voice of Kirsty Heggie - who’s silken sound will make you cry - and señor Arno Blok (a.k.a. CaveYear), who will unleash some entrancing noise and rhythm for you to get down to. Following that vibe, the boys from The Dirty Lies will polish off the night like gravy from a plate (…) There might be a special guest, too (or two).
We’ll have the eminent Djurdjevan on the decks all evening delivering some Class A vinyl - mixing like a devil, playing like a demon.
Don’t miss out, 'cause you’ll be sad, and that’s not good for the mood. No entry fee, you pay what you want.
