Hot off the press!
Peter MacCalman, director of the Acoustic Affair events has just announced a late addition to their programme: The Trongate Rum Riots...
Taking place at Cottiers Theatre, Hyndland on Saturday, 16 June at 8:30pm, it is set to be a fantastic night!
A little blurb about the band:
The Trongate Rum Riots set sail less than nine months ago but have already enjoyed bringing their brand of ‘hyper-sea shanties’ to some of Glasgow’s biggest venues. Since meeting in a water logged lifeboat off the West coast of Scotland, the seven lads and one lass that make up the band have written several albums worth of folk-punk songs and are currently working on their first E.P. Suitable for all ages, we are sure their unique rhythm will attract the crowds! http://www.facebook.com/TrongateRumRiots
Another note: one of the Acoustic Affair acts, Sketch are launching their newest album Shedlife this Monday (28, May). Currently Album of the Week on the BBC’s Iain Anderson Show this week, they will be playing at Oran Mor on June 8 – don’t miss your chance to see them live!
