Easter Showcases 2013 Preview!


Don’t worry, it’s just a guy in a suit

Showcase time again in the Ironworks and here I am, extremely late, with a preview for it. Won’t actually BE at the showcases themselves though as the first is on Sunday (the 31st) and the buses are horrendous on a Sunday. No point in showing up then having to leave at half 8. The second on Monday WOULD be fine, but I’m on air doing that radio show thing that I do. Assuming you listen to the show the lateness of this preview won’t actually matter as I banged on about them there plenty.

The seasonal showcases are a great chance to catch some established and not so established acts that you may not have seen before for a handful of pounds. In the past that sentence would have had local in it. This time it’s probably safer to say either unsigned and indie OR Scottish, as I think they are all from this country. Not quite all from the Inverness area but that’s okay. It’s also a bit of a mixed bag on each night which, if you listen to the aforementioned show, you’ll know I’m all for. Maybe not QUITE as eclectic as I can be at times but a nice mix all the same. Anyway enough blah blah, this is who you can here.


Thankfully not playing

EASTER SHOWCASE #1 SUNDAY 31ST OF MARCH

Or Easter Sunday, funnily enough. I assume the line up is just the reverse of the poster order as that’s what happens most of the time. Could be wrong though

MIR – I’m not sure if there IS a Facebook page for MIR, so I’ll link to youtube instead. Rock and roll in the traditional sense, 50’s style. Bluesy rock with some surf rock thrown in there for good measure. Whether it’s Miriam solo or the full band I don’t know, but I assume when the billing is MIR she’s got boys with her.
RED RONSON – Inverness’ premier ship builders (come and join us, the more the merrier. No I have no idea why either but it was important last time so I’m in) who also play music now and again. Poppy folk music, you should have heard at least one tune, and thoroughly nice people to boot. Quite a new act and I have yet to see them live. Will rectify that as soon as I can though.
NAKED RED – Red Ronson will then lose their clothes and….oh hold on. No relation at all really. These guys are a funky rock band, more rock than funk and a wee bit 80’s, who I first heard at the LAST Easter Showcase. So good they’ve been invited back again. Regulars on the Inverness gig scene so if you haven’t seen them yet now is your chance.
EMMA MITCHELL – And friends as Emma will have a number of guests with her for her set. Bit of a who’s who of Greenhouse people I think which is no bad thing. First person to play live on my show, Emma has a cracking voice and plays a range of rock, folk and blues type acoustic numbers. When it’s just her. Not sure if it stays acoustic when people join her. Join them and find out! Not on stage, in the audience.
LIONEL – Damned good rock band from Inverness who I first (and last I think though they’ve been gigging plenty) saw during the battle of the bands in The Eagle Upstairs. They were runners up if I remember rightly and if it was held just now would have won as the winners or on hiatus. Some great stuff, well worth the ticket price alone.
AGAINST ALL FLAGS – Dunno much about these guys at all to be honest but they have a couple of videos so now I know a wee bit. I assume they are local, and they play punk. Proper punk with no modifiers like you used to get on cassettes. Punk that’s loud, can be pretty fast, and is loud. Punk. Good stuff.
WASHINGTON IRVING – If you looked up Scottish Folk Rock in a….well it wouldn’t be in the dictionary as it’s 3 words. These guys are someone you could easily point people at as a solid example of the genre though. Not local but Inverness regulars. I’ll admit it was a surprise to me they were playing, but a pleasant one. Or it would be if I could go… *grumble*
IAIN MCLAUGHLIN AND THE OUTSIDERS – It was roughly a year ago that they released they’re first album We Are All Outsiders. It’s bloody good, you should get one. It’s on Spotify if you don’t believe me. Iain has told me a second one is in the offing (think it’s an album) so even if you are familiar with it they will no doubt be playing quite a bit of new stuff. Which I’m sure will also be excellent.

So that’s the first night then. On to….


You are going, roit mate?

EASTER SHOWCASE #2 MONDAY THE 1ST OF APRIL

It’s after noon so this can’t be a fool. Also, doors are at 7 and I’ll still be on air. Remember that ABC Radio Alness is available on the Tune In App. Bands won’t be on at 7, so I’m sure everyone would appreciate some good music till they do come on. Like playing a very good show through your phone for them to hear. Just saying 😉

When they DO start they’ll be these people:

ALICE BENTLEY – She used to be the front lady of the Young Trees, now she’s just a lady with a front. Had her in for a proper session and she’s very very good so you should make sure and turn up for the start or you’ll be missing out. Poppy folk solo acoustic performing person.
ALL HAT NO CAT – The IW page is wrong, I’m not. Anyway, Adrian and Lucy on guitar and flute respectively (and he plays the mouthy as well) with some singing, mainly from Adrian. Classic style folk music like what was common a few years back. Played them on the show, very good stuff.
DOUGIE BURNS – and the Cadillacs. That being what he’s calling his band, probably down to signature tune “California Cadillac”. And a fitting name for the style of blues rock that Dougie plays. Funky as hell, entertaining lyrics, very fun stuff. Dougie doesn’t have a FB page for the band. I suggested he set one up for his music about 6 months back and he doesn’t know how. Sarah, set up a page for your old man would ya?
BLUE GUM EARS – New ones on me though going by their Facebook they might have been knocking about for 8 years?! Anyway, also going by the Facebook they’re alternative rockers and not bad ones too. That’s all I’ve got.
AILSA JEAN LYALL MATHEWS – Know more about this one though. I’ve managed to catch her twice and she has a fantastic voice BUT isn’t really a musician. So that’s why you may not have heard her much for the last while. Not sure who will be accompanying her or if she’s just been practicing the playing side of things, but cracking voice on her.
THE LITTLE MILL OF HAPPINESS – If you are a fan of local music you are probably a fan of these guys as they’re one of those bands everyone likes. Rightly so. Dark and moody yes, epicly talented also yes. Caught them around a month ago I think and there was a lot of new material on offer (I believe a second EP is in the offing) so if you haven’t seen them in a while get yourself along. And if you’ve never seen them then DEFINITELY get yourself along.
CHASING OWLS – New one on me again, less than usual for a showcase I’m slightly proud to say. Similar GENRE to Washington Irving but not the same. I’d make a bit of a Ben Folds type comparison as well maybe? Also they have a lady person. More indie than last nights second last act. Good stuff though, if I do drag myself up after the show I’ll be looking forward to hearing them.
RED KITES – and I’ll also be very much looking forward to hearing these guys. Not local technically, but they are local in many ways and very much loved in Inverness and the Highlands in general. Honestly I don’t have to say any more do I? Thought not.

Doors on both nights open at 7pm and each night is a fiver. You are TOTALLY ripping them off at that price as each band if probably worth that all by thereselves. I’ve said more than enough, get your ass to Mar….the Ironworks.
