Sunday 7th August – Withered Hand and Rachel Sermanni in-store as part of Born To Be Wide

I should have more details very soon but Dan and Rachel will be appearing in the shop as part of Born To Be Wide’s celebration of the Edinburgh music scene. 

Scotland’s leading music social club, Born To Be Wide, is to host a special celebration of Edinburgh’s music scene with live previews by local bands and industry DJs selecting their favourite four tracks by acts from the capital.

Taking place at the Electric Circus on Sunday 7 August, the night will feature ten-minute taster sets by acts performing at various music events taking place during August, providing an opportunity for audiences to get a snapshot of emerging local acts. Live performances will take place on the hour and half hour, while guest promoters, music journalists and other pillars of the local scene will play their favourite four records by Edinburgh artists in between bands.  In addition to this, there will also be daytime gigs in record shops and a couple of surprises yet to be announced.

Confirmed live acts include

 Austen George, Bwani Junction, Alex Cornish, Chasing Owls, Church of When The Sh*t Hits The Fan, Lady North, Rachel Sermanni and Withered Hand.

All will  be performing full sets at various events throughout August including The Edge, Retreat, Song By Toad, Scottish Independent Record Fair Summerhall and the Acoustic Music Centre.

As you can see I drew the long straw and there will be no need to worry about not mentioning Vampire Weekend. I was asked to go along to the Scottish Independent Record Fair but as you can also see I can not be in two places at once ! We will be highlighting Scottish labels during all of the Festival anyway and I already have a few exciting offers lined up. As I have mentioned previously I had spoken about this with Andy at Gerry Loves Records and Matthew at Song By Toad. Obviously there will be lots of small labels and some not so small labels not represented at the fair but all will have their releases available in the shop as usual.

We do have more in-stores planned during the Festival and they will be announced soon. Star Wheel Press are confirmed for Friday August 26th.
