MON 1ST - THE DEAD PETS, MISLED YOUTH & GILMAN STREET...8PM...4

The Dead Pets sound to the un-initiated is as modern old school punk rock

with a Ska tinge. All the aggression of Agnostic Front, all the charm of the

Mighty Mighty Bosstone's and all the fun of the Dropkick Murphy's. The

seven-musician line up (including two bassists?) creates a solid yet clean

sound. They're scruffy, tasteless, rude, offensive, aggressive and instantly

likeable. The whole band ooze charisma, and they possess one vital strength

that you rarely see with commercial punk bands... they all look like they

are having a great time. And this creates a great atmosphere in a small

venue!! www.thedeadpets.co.uk

TUES 2ND - ACOUSTIC OPEN MIC hosted by STEVE CRAWFORD...8PM...FREE

WED 3RD - PARAVION, FOIL, DEDALUS & JAILBIRD LIME...8PM...3.50

FOIL - Fine Edinburgh band, signed to 13th Hour records, who have already

released an album and several eps. Some say Arab Strap, some say Idlewild.

PARAVION - Discordant yet progressive, these hell worshipers are tour

support to Foil around Scotland. Think June of 44, laden with depth and

fantastic guitar sounds. DEDALUS - Think Joy Division angles, tinged with

Interpol, and The Smiths melodies, while being compromised by God Speed You

& JAILBIRD LIME - He listens to an unhealthy amount of Bright Eyes, Flaming

Lips and The Microphones. Acoustic and shows excellence.

THURS 4th - PSYCHOTIC KANDY presents WONDERBOY, OLIX & support...8PM...3

the first of 2 Psychotic Kandy shows this month, tonight showcasing a few

different flavours of local talent

SAT 6TH - CAYTO, THE BEARD & MARCY'S MONSTER PARADE...8PM...3.50

Cayto have been described before as sounding like 'an octupus being put

through a washing machine', they describe themselves as 'experimental

rockin' telefunkin magic-jazz poonk' - make what you will of that, we just

think they're great! www.cayto.com support comes from post rockers MMP and

new female fronted indie rockers The Beard

MON 8TH - INTERESTING MUSIC present SCHNEIDER TM, CHRIST & SCIENTIFIC

SUPPORT DEPT....8PM....5

Over the past three years, Schneider TM has remixed in inimitable style the

likes of Lambchop, Labradford, High Llamas, Quarks and Ruby among others. A

noise-record with Pansonic's Ilpo Vaisanen is in the can and Norwegian

folkster Erlend Oye (Kings of Convenience) has asked him to collaborate on

his forthcoming solo project.It's time to blast preconceptions of

electronica as cold, minimal, distant knob twiddling to oblivion once and

for all, and Dirk Dresselhaus, aka Schneider TM, is just the man to do

it.check www.schneidertm.com for more details. support from Christ &

Scientific Support Dept www.scientificsupport.com

TUES 9TH - ACOUSTIC OPEN MIC hosted by ZIGGY FANTASTIC, 8PM, FREE

WED 10TH - CLOSER, BOSS STAR & SUPPORT...8PM...3.50

Adorno Records' CLOSER have gone from strength to strength in the last

year - performances at (amongst others): gig on the green (2001 + 2002),

king tuts (with nada surf, sparta, cooper temple clause etc.), and radio

one's snowbombing have helped establish a good live following. their popcore

sound (think weezer meets ...trail of dead) sits well with the current

musical climate, ensuring regular airplay. BOSS STAR are a 4 piece power pop

band from Dundee who combine the melodic hooks of The Fountain of Wayne and

the soaring guitar work of Weezer.

THURS 11TH - GODNOSE, VOICE OF AGRESSION & JESUS ELEPHANT GOD...8PM...4
