Gig Description

Katherine Aly– having collaborated on many musical projects in Scotland’s capital, including Hidden Door Festival, various art projects and as the lead singer of shoegaze band, Lilac Melt, the exceedingly talented Ms Aly has since worked with innumerable UK-based musicians/bands, including Baby Taylah, Glassmasterer, False Bliss, Midi Paul and Sheltering Waves. Her melody-driven tracks are a multi-genre experimentation with ethereal, lyrical elements and dreamy ambience. Her single ‘The Skin I’m Made Of’ made a great impact, as did her debut live performance alongside Scots noir wave icons The Filthy Tongues in The Dublin Castle earlier this year, and she subsequently played with the Tongues’ mothership, the amazing Goodbye Mr McKenzie at their sold out Aberdeen show earlier this year . Originally from Greece, Katherine Aly has a unique story arc and an equally singular talent all her own with influences from the likes of Dead Can Dance, Chelsea Wolfe and Jeff Buckley. Currently working up her debut album ad with the excellent new ‘Sunny Days’ single to promote, we can’t recommend checking out Katherine’s show tonight enough. D-Kel & Los Bandidos – Mixing a mighty agreeable and engaging yelp of a rap with some heavy funk rock…like Wiley fronting Funkadelic…kinda. Frontman D-Kel takes inspiration from London where he was born and bred and Latin America where his roots lie, and draws inspiration from Artists such as Roots Manuva, Slaves, The Beat, The Specials, Jamie T, The Streets, Calle 13 & Tego Calderon. Social conscience with a cool creative spin of verbals. The excellent ‘Racket’ is available on all good music forums.  Another unmissable new act you can say ‘I was there’ about in a few years time!… Calum Lintott –  After releasing his official debut EP, ‘The Way It Is’, in 2016, which features fan favourite and his debut single ‘ Pin-Up’, Lintott has been hard at work. Non stop writing, creating and releasing bigger anthems, including the much anticipated emotional acoustic track ‘I Don’t Mind’, in early 2018 and his double single ‘Hometown & English Daisy’ at the tail end of 2018. Lintott released his new single ‘My Dear!’ in April 2019. The new ear worm of a track is a smack in the face reminder that Lintott’s exciting and lively mix of indie pop is awfully infectious. “Anthemic Indie Pop at its finest, BRILLIANT!” – GIGSLUTZ / THIS FEELING Hugo Hamlet and the Dandelions – witty and engaging jazz tinged pop with wry, sharp lyrics, rocking a sorta Noel Coward for our times, also a bit of a Jarvis Cocker vibe and at times Momus and The Divine Comedy.
