further misadventures of an accidental gig promoter, pt.3;
I really ought to have started punting this earlier, but I am doing another gig!
Just a few short weeks after the release of his third album, Do The Struggle, on the incomparable Xtra Mile Recordings, Franz Nicolay steps off the Trans-Siberian Railroad and heads back to Glasgow. If you caught him on his previous tour you may have heard some of these songs (the anthemic “Hearts of Boston”, the rabble-rousing “Frankie Stubbs’ Tears”) in demo form – and given the album has found him teeming up with producer oktopus of industrial/hip-hop ground dälek I for one can’t wait to hear how those influences come across in a set which, although technically “acoustic”, never fails to surprise and excite in equal measure.
Supporting this time around we have “alt-rock necromancers” (The Herald) Louise McVey and Cracks in the Concrete [Love Lust Tales out now] and folk-noir Isle of Skye quartet The Dead Man’s Waltz [self-titled out now].
Really excited for this one as it’s the first time I’ve put on non-acoustic acts, but also slightly terrified as it’s my first one on a school night – it’s on Thursday, 23rd August. Why don’t you settle my stomach and pre-book a ticket for eight quid via Eventbrite?
