Ash - Forres?

To be a pedant...it's not really Forres, The Loft is on a farm midway between Forres and Elgin (which to be fair is probably weirder).

And there's been a few decent bands playing there including Drunken Public (Levellers), Hayseed Dixie, Delays...and comedian Jason Byrne to name but 4...but it shows that Ash are not exactly in the ascendancy of their career.

Good wee venue though :):gringo:

They're doing an A-Z alphabetical tour and this one is E for East Grange, Forres, Quite a neat idea

That's clutching at straws (farm ha ha). The venue is called The Loft and is in East Grange and technically listed under Kinloss but ...would Edinburgh not have been a more obvious choice (in Scotland anyway) or even Elgin :)

I think it's a pretty cool idea.

They're playing Falkirk for F, obviously, and the pub they're playing is pretty nice.

It's better than just playing Edinburgh for E, Inverness for I etc etc.

I have no objection to anyone playing the Loft, indeed the more the merrier. It's a great wee venue as is The Warehouse in Lossiemouth and for acoustic sets The Red Shoes in Elgin.

Yep, Elgin still loves it.

I'll be making my annual visit when i'm back this xmas :up:

I stopped making my annual trip last year - felt much better that way. Due to the ridiculous queues would have ended up celebrating the turnover to Christmas day in the queue.

My knowledge of local geography is appalling - I saw the Ash tour dates about 2 months ago and didn't know that East Grange was up here! I'm going to be in Elgin at the weekend too...is there a bus going there and back at all?

About mid way to Forres from Elgin on the right (about 2 miles from Alves)...there is a sign post. Then there's a single track road and it's about half a mile up there over a bridge. No bus home to Aberdeen methinks.

But it is a decent venue, with a bar and can be an experience!

You're shitting me, Downtown still exists?o_O

Aye Hog...and worse still, it and Joanna's are still the destination of choice for the sheep on the piss...probably Lee still goes to Jo's too :)
