Creeping out of winter hibernation this week to actually go out and do some performing, if anyone fancies an evening’s entertainment, here’s a couple of suggestions:
Monday 4th – Spangled Cabaret launch, an evening of variety, burlesque, puppetry, and a whole bunch else, featuring: Rufus T.Farenheit & Lucille Burn/Miss Leggy Pee/Daiquiri Dusk/Markee/Little Red Fairy/Nicola Siix/Vendetta Vain/Louise McVey + Many more.
I’m not doing anything for this, but Miss Leggy Pee is, and that should be enough!
Spangled Cabaret, Cafe Rio, Hyndland St, 9pm-11pm, free entry.
Wednesday 6th – WordDogs : Them and Us, an evening of spoken word stuff readings and beer on the theme of division, difference and understanding the other. There’s some really good material lined up for this one. Staring down the mic this time will be: Richard Mosses, Phil Raines, Martin Belk, Ian Hunter, Mark Harding, Neil Williamson, Hal Duncan and Gavin Inglis.
Saturday 9th – Murnie + The Fusiliers + Laura Healy at Maggie May’s (which has apparently just won Theme magazine’s Best Live Music Venue award for 2007). Laura Healy’s an interesting artist – she sings with the fabulous Colette McKendrick, but I caught her with her own band at Boudica’s Ball last year and really enjoyed both the performance and the EP I picked up. As for Murnie, this is the band’s first outing of the year and we’ve got a really upbeat set prepared, so if you fancy a bit of a bounce come down on Saturday night. Mr Q will be delighted to see you.
Maggie May’s, Trongate, 800pm, £5/£3
