Gig Listings 30th September- 6th October

Greetings and Fàilte! Another week of quality gigs coming up in Edinburgh this week. Amongst the big names in town this week are Laura Mvula, 2013 Glastonbury debutants Everything Everything and Ex-Razorlight frontman Johnny Borrell.

At the Usher Hall on Tuesday night is Joy Division Reworked, an ‘Electro-Orchestral reinterpretation’ of Joy Division’s best work ‘delivered in a unique audio-visual manner’. Having drawn many comparisons with Biffy Clyro and Jimmy Eat World Belfast’s best More Than Conquerers rock up in town at Sneaky Pete’s on Saturday night. Following on from spontaneous gigs in their local Asda (seriously, google it if you don’t believe me) Jamie and Shoony play the Liquid Rooms with Kooks-esque catchiness. Finally, for anyone out there who is a fan of Celtic Trad, you know who you are – you tell your housemates that you were channel flicking and just happened by chance to stop on BBC Alba, then Corran Raa are a must see. They formed, somewhat inevitably for a Trad band, on an uninhabited Hebridean Island and have had people jigging on both sides of the Atlantic ever since. So, once again, Dùn Èideann gives us a giant eclectic musical hug! Happy Gigging!
