Hey kids, here’s what’s been happening with local acts over the last couple of days.

Speaking of kids, I’ve been asked to let you know that the Greenhouse open mic nights have a few open guest star slots over the next few months that they’re looking to fill. It’s every second Thursday, in Dingwall, and is a lovely wee place to have a gig. You’ll get 40 minutes (I believe, maybe 30) instead of the standard 3 tunes and it’s always a very appreciative audience. I say kids because Matt is particularly looking for young up and comers to give it a shot. So if you are interested either contact Matt Sillars OR me and I’ll pass it on. And I’ll see you there as I go to every one I can and I THINK I’ll have most second Thursdays free for the next while. Which is nice.

Also nice, a couple of acts from this area have scooped up some SNMAs (Scottish New Music Awards). First off it’s Lewis Hamilton and the Boogie Brothers winning in the Jazz/Blues category and Estrella winning Loud/Metal recording of the year (jointly with Peepshow, who aren’t local so stuff em. Only kidding). Estrella’s Come Out To Play was also runner up for Record of the Year! Well done to both acts, lets hope it’s the start of a tidal wave for next year when the Highlands will sweep the SNMAs and leave the rest of the country weeping at our awesomeness, MWUHAHAHAHAHA!

The LED have released a new remix of Eva Simons Renegade. I’m not familiar with the original tune AND it’s not my kind of thing, BUT it’s no bad like and if it IS your kind of thing you’ll no doubt enjoy it.

Desecrator is looking for a support act for his gig in the Market Bar on the 12th. If you are a Death Metal band, or just a Metal band he’s not fussy, then head over to the page and let him know your up for it.

Cleavers time! 7 minutes of hard core punk for your face and ears from Rodstock. They rock it so hard that the stage bounces a fair bit, and insult the crowd. Punks eh? It’s a bit feedbacky as well. “Fuck your life” is a bit of a band motto btw, so feel free to shout it at them at gigs as they’ll no doubt…well they’ll say it back because they’re punks.

While we’re on videos the boys at Nut Productions have a couple of new ones out today. Two singer/songwriter ladies to be precise. First one is new to me. Her name is Joanne Summer, she’s from Moray somewhere and this is I Can’t Make You Love Me. Keeping on turning out stuff like that would be a start. Second one isn’t new to me, but I haven’t seen her perform in ages so the song is. Here’s Megan Blyth, who you can see on the acoustic bar stage at Jocktoberfest, with Bring Me Down. You need to get that second EP out!

If you read the Battle of the Bands preview piece REALLY QUICKLY then you’ll think Naked Red is playing. That’s what the posted says. They aren’t as they’ve had to step out due to drummer injury. Get better soon Jamie! Stepping in to fill the slot, oh err, is Silence to Medicate so we won’t all have to sit like idiots for a half hour. Yay!

And that as they say is that. Things will get a bit tricky over the next few days. On Wednesday I’m off to the Battle of the Bands. Thursday I’m off to the STV Appeal. Friday and Saturday I’ll be at Jocktoberfest. Sunday I’ll have possibly died (got day job work in there too). If there’s stuff there’ll be a post tomorrow, when the next one is I can’t say for sure BUT I will do my best to have not missed anything. Local acts feel free to have the week off 😉 Thanks for reading, give us a like on Facebook

Hey kids. Here’s what local bands have been saying for themselves/doing/releasing over the last day.

If you missed the Showcase the other day, well shame on you, but also you don’t have to feel entirely left out. #FrontRoomUnplugged have a wee bit of Little Mill of Happiness for you right here. Now you know what you missed and won’t repeat the mistake.

Speaking of things and missing them. As I said yesterday I failed to catch The Cleavers when they played the Ironworks on Wednesday. Some kind sole recorded the whole set up in Wick though. So here it is for your enjoyment. Sound is a bit on the dodgy side, they are a loud bunch of boys, so pretend it’s MW radio or summit. Btw if you were at the Elgin show this week and are down a pair of glasses someone put them in Dave’s bag so give them a shout to get them back. Also, they have some new posters going in their merch store.

KOBI, who you also either saw or missed at the Showcase, have been up at Bogbain Farm to do some recording (it’s a studio now dontcha know). For what, I don’t know but can’t wait to find out.

Speaking of recording (I should stop starting paragraphs with “speaking of” but it makes things look planned) Lewis Hamilton (of And The Boogie Brothers fame) has set up a new page for Lewis Hamilton Music which is his indie label. The page says that they’re currently working on a blues compilation album with the best of Scottish blues. I can think of a few people I hope are on there.

You may have noticed by now I have quite a broad taste in music, which is handy if your doing a music page really.

And there’s another new page, this one a website not a Facebook though they HAVE a FB obviously, on the go. Inverness Gigs have been a bit quiet lately but they’re back now with some new artwork courtesy of Sodium3. They post news and reviews and the like, like this preview for Daft Funk in Dingwall.

If you are so inclined, and I am as I love a bit of Daft Punk, you can win tickets to that gig courtesy of Musique Dingwall. Just find the Daft Funk post (most recent as I’m writing) like it and share it. Like wot I did.

Sienna Lights will be getting a bit of air play on Jim Gellatly’s show on Amazing Radio this Sunday. The show is on between 2 and 4pm at this here web page and it’ll be your chance to hear a bit of the EP before it’s officially out next month (though some have been available at festivals and that. I’m getting mine on Thursday at the next showcase and there’s a few others up for grabs. Preview piece coming, EP review closer to launch).

Donald Macdonald and The Islands have uploaded an accoustic performance of their new song Ryan (or Heart Ryan Can’t Fix possibly). It’s really very good.

And that’ll do it. Please like this sites new Facebook page, then share it about and invite your friends so they don’t miss out 🙂
