Music and Meandering

Music and Meandering by yours truly, Heather-Davina.

I live, laugh and love in London, but I'm a Glasgow girl at heart.

I ramble a lot about music, literature, events and living life in general. 

Live SAY award updates from Pop Cop

Well if we weren’t excited enough for the SAY awards tonight- Pop Cop’s rounded up some amigos to give a continuous update on what’s going on.

Dress? Check. Tickets? Check. Hot date? Check. Phone so I can keep updated with what’s going on… even when I’m in the same room? Check.

An interview with The Xcerts

What an enjoyable little read over lunch.

New Album = Yeaaaaaaaah

Axl being a cunt= Booooooooo

I’m too full of food to be any more articulate right now. Just read the damn interview.

Some lovely new music for a rather grey Tuesday night in Edinburgh. 

Graeme, Pete, Fergus and Gillian, collectively The State broadcasters, are a Glaswegian band, who are bringing out brilliant music through Olive Grove Records.

Have a listen.

Go North 2012- Thursday night

Some photos from the train ride from Edinburgh to Inverness, and of course, Thursday night at Go North. Teklo raving it up in Hootannanys, Olympic Swimmers beautiful and completely rammed gig in Madhatters, Lady North following up, making some funky and damn ear satisfying noises, French Wives perfect harmonies in Ironworks, then back to Madhatters to see DARC, who as well as providing a smashing performance to close Detour’s showcase, gave away party bags with their band info on party invitations as well as refresher bars. Boys, you clearly know the way to a girl’s heart.

Detour Episode 1

A couple of shots from the filming of Miaoux Miaoux and Prof at the arcade, as well as some photos from the live gig in Stereo starring Alarm Bells and United Fruit.

Rehearsal. Bright lights. Fat beats.

Oooooh flashy lights.

Exactly what you need at 16.31 on a Saturday

What are you doing on Sunday?

If like me you’re not at Rockness, give your ears a musicical day trip to the Scottish Album of the Year Award in-store events.

It’s the perfect opportunity to see for yourself why these artists deserve to be in the shortlist.

Conquering Animal Sound: Love Music, Dundas Street, 2pm

Remember Remember (solo show) : HMV Buchanan Street, 3pm

Happy Particles (full band): HMV Buchanan Street, 3.30pm

Bill Wells & Aidan Moffat: Apple Store Buchanan St, 4.30pm

And so as not to leave the east coast out, Conquering Animal Sound will be playing Avalanche in Edinburgh at 4pm on Saturday 9th.

Day 1 at Go North

If you, like I, missed the first day and night of Go North 2012, have a swatch at Euan’s photos.

His blog’s also very interesting- I think we have a very similar opinion on the perfect chaos that’s currently underway in Inverness.

Plus, he’s PURE GREAT at taking photos. Make sure you check out his back catalogue.

My personal favourite from last night is the drummer from Fat Goth: partically because it completely encapsulates the focus and passion of the moment, but mainly because his facial expression is the same as that of the cartoon on his t-shirt. It made me laugh.

I will see you there in approximately 9.5 hours (not that I’m counting…)
