Hey guys. I have recently just discovered Drowned in Sound and i have to say i'm really impressed with the diversity of musical discussions on it. Normally it will be the usual generic patter but this seems to be a bit different.
Im part of a team organising a night of music at the art school of Glasgow on 24th Oct 2009 to showcase the finest imerging talent in the Scottish contemporary scene. This great night will give fans the opportunity to discover new music, support existing favourites and better still? All the proceeds go directly to Cancer Research UK. Amazing music and all for a good cause, it's win, win. Below are details and we hope you like what you hear and come along to support this event!!
TBC 09's line up is as follows;
The Fire & I - http://www.myspace.com/thefireandi
An energetic alternative rock two-piece acclaimed for their high energy, adrenaline-fuelled performances. Need to be seen live & the absolute embodyment of the rock and roll spirit!
Pearl & The Puppets [Solo Performance] - http://www.myspace.com/pearlandthepuppets
Pearl's atmospheric, innocent and quirky songs capture the coming of age spirit while breaking through the barriers of expectation. A favourite of no less than Elton John, whom he hand picked to support him at the SECC in June; an unquestionable star of the future.
