Upstairs IV sees a guitariffic line-up! Experience mixes with fledgling promise in what will surely be a packed Saturday night at Leith Depot. There is no doubt about it, if you want to be a part of this, you'll need to be quick.
FRANTIC CHANT - A home gig for these Leith boys, and it'll be a home win, that's for sure. Looking forward to anthemic psychedelic rock 'n roll: catchy and unpretentious songs, powerful vocals, strong guitar, bass, and drums - in other words, pure quality. Listen to "Surf Daft" (Uproar at the Hipsters Convention) here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AUzzIiEW6mA
PAL -More Edinburgh japes. This charming band describe themselves as an "all-girl band with a boy drummer". Yes, they are. Want to know more? Come and see. Fronted by the famous, charismatic, and energetic Nora Winstanley, though, this will be an entertaining, fun, and raucous set.
MAD GERALD - Great outfit. Sometimes manic, sometimes brooding, sometimes psychedelic, but always really dynamic and interesting. This band's songs are laden with infectious guitar riffs. If you're a first time viewer, you'll probably fall for their 60s-influenced psych-pop. Plus, they've got a brilliant name.
DISSCHORD - Recent graduates of the esteemed Girls Rock School, they stole the show at the showcase and are ready to kick the party off at their first post-graduate gig, with some powerful punk and grrl riot style. Be smart; be early.
