Award Winners, Nominees & Hit Makers – This week’s gigs in Edinburgh.

D Feast Logo (lofi)Hello! We have another week of quality gigs coming up in Edinburgh. The Queen’s Hall plays host to Mark Lanegan this coming Monday. The following night at the same venue, Irish- indie quintet, Villagers, follow up their 2013 Mercury Music Prize Nomination with a visit to Edinburgh. On Wednesday night former drummer for The Coral, Ian Skelly, plays The Voodoo Rooms with his band The Serpent Power. Also on Wednesday Bipolar Sunshine and Public Service Broadcasting take to the stage at The Electric Circus and The Picture House respectively. If you like your Rock music with a tint of Blues local three-piece The Southpaws play Whistlebinkies this Thursday night. BBC World Music Musician of the Year Winner, Rokia Traore, takes to the stage at The Liquid Room on Friday Night.

This Saturday we are spoiled for choice. There’s a massive ten band bill at Verden Studios in Portobello as part of a showcase to highlight fantastic local talent with entry just £7. It seems like an age since Turin Brakes once peppered the single charts with hit after hit, they’ve put their hiatus to the side and return to Edinburgh’s The Pleasance as part of a small UK Tour. William Douglas and The Wheel, Woodenbox and Hanna Tuulikki’s new project Two Wings are also playing at various venues this Saturday. Finally, Glaswegian Singer-Songwriter and BBC Radio DJ Roddy Hart continues his Scottish Tour at The Voodoo Rooms with his band The Lonesome Fire on Sunday Night. Happy Gigging!
