For this June, July and August only - Kopparberg (Premium Swedish Cider) brings you the Kopparberg Collective, a series of gigs and clubnights that celebrate and promote the brands quest to highlight uncomplicated music. Kopparberg are giving everyone over the age of 18 free entry to each of the nights by signing up for the Kopparberg Collective Card. All you need to do is sign up at the door at Snafu, and your card will be presented straight away.

First night kicks off with this nice little line-up on Wednesday 25th June:

THE ADS (single launch - "Say That It's Summer")

THE ADS

The Ads' explosive live shows are creating an extraordinary buzz around Scotland. The band kicked off 2007 by selling out King Tut's and the management team that steered Snow Patrol and Futureheads to success has since snapped them up. Cracking songs like "Mess" or "Maybe Tonight" sound like this fiesty four-piece have kidnapped The Buzzcocks' kitchen sink dramas and forcibly cojoined them with the raucous laddishness of the Small Faces. Gonnabees? Huge! You'll be chanting along with "Say That It's Summer" in minutes.

THE MOTH & THE MIRROR(single launch - "Soft Insides")

THE MOTH & THE MIRROR

The Moth & The Mirror are a collection of people that have been stolen from other bands including Make Model, Brother Louis Collective, The Reindeer Section and Arab Strap. " A cross between Nick Cave and Bjork", said one newspaperman describing The Moth & The Mirror's particular brand of glock rock. "Soft Insides" was produced by Tony Doogan, also responsible for the production of the likes of Mogwai, Belle & Sebastian and The Reindeer Section to name but a few.

THE LITTLE KICKS

THE LITTLE KICKS

Local heroes - The Little Kicks make a welcome return to the Snafu stage. Having been making waves in Scotland for the last year, plus supporting high profile bands they have that adaptable sound that can be rocked up a notch or doped down nice and slow. Lead singer Steven Milne has a raw honesty in his voice, that belies the strength of the band, but that's why it's so appealing, you can tell The Little Kicks can properly rock out when given the chance on stage. They've supported The Kooks, Mystery Jets, Editors, The Rakes, Dogs, Maximo Park, Editors, The Sunshine Underground, Brakes, Maccabees, Errors, Ed Harcourt, Electric Soft Parade, Morning Runner, The Rumblestrips and Jamie T; have played T in The Park; and in 2005 they won the Lee Sounds Scottish final and a Radio 1 Demo Derby in 2006.

The Ads are not bad either. I saw them in Tunnels with 11 other people! Haha. I suppose it was unfortunate that Foals were playing Moshulu that night.

hey kids,

were taking a break in july - bar one lemon tree accoustic slot - (to go on various holiday trips and festivals / demo new material at home etc) and come back to gigging at the start of august.

August is looking to be busy for us as we have some festival dates / an aberdeen date or two (as well as more party nights) a gig or three out of town AND a potential mini tour in the middle of that month too.

These dates and some more new recordings will be up on the myspace by the end of this week i reckon.

So , anyway, the point is, this will be our last band gig for a while in Aberdeen.

Were also on early - so hope to see you there.

we just got back from a weekend of gigs away / recording which was ace fun

and we were on pretty good form (especially in edinburgh - people danced and sang which was nice) so heres hoping the luck stays with us for the rest of the week...

The Steam Engine: Jim James and Carl Broemel - The Black Cab Sessions
