LIVE DOWNSTAIRS- TEENAGERSINTOKYO, FRENCH WIVES, FUTURISTIC RETRO CHAMPIONS AND SKITTEN
MUSIC UPSTAIRS - "ALTERNATIVEELECTRONICSYNTHCOWBELLRAPPUNKPOPROCK" FROM HLDB & PIN UPS DJS
HLDB returns following a jam-packed, sold-out event last month – thanks again to Micachu & the Shapes, The Invisible and Findo Gask for great performances and thanks to YOU if you made it along!
Continuing in our mission to bring you something a wee bit different from what we present at Pin Up Nights, our headline act this month is teenagersintokyo ( www.myspace.com/teenagersintokyo ) from Sydney, Australia. 4 gorgeous girls plus Rudy on drums, the band's chief influences are 80s era Fleetwood Mac, Prince, Kraftwerk and Talking Heads - 4 of our all-time favourite bands! Unsurprisingly they sound great - go have a listen. Further evidence of this band's exquisite credentials is the label that they're on - Back Yard Recordings, which released the Gossip's mega-hit "Standing in the way of control" and also Chromeo's "Fancy Footwork".
Support comes from the super French Wives ( www.myspace.com/thefrenchwives ), a very promising Glasgow band who have recently released their debut double A-side 'Halloween'/'Dogfight', Edinburgh's effervescent and electronic Futuristic Retro Champions ( www.myspace.com/retrochamps ), and the "synthy pop goodness" of Skitten ( www.myspace.com/skittenmusic ).
There'll also be the HLDB and Pin Ups DJs upstairs all evening. HLDB is either a great start to your Saturday night, or a terrific night out all on it's own!
