Happy August everyone, which apparently translates to happy scattered thunderstorm forecast week. Let’s hope that proves to be inaccurate because most of the recommendations this weekend are outdoors or have outdoor spaces, so we could well be in for a miserable ride. Alas, see you at the bar…
Apologies for the brief break, the World Cup really proved to be far too exciting. Though speaking of breaks, I’m actually in Edinburgh to see my first favourite band this weekend, but for those of you still in our own great city, here are the best options!
We’re well into free-summer-shows season, and they make up three of your options below, so after you’ve finished watching some World Cup matches or eaten some nachos (why not both?), you’ve got some great options. Perhaps Germany’s players wanted to skip the rest of the tournament in favour of one of the below…
In a week dominated by inhumane actions stemmed from our wannabe-dictator of a president, it’s pretty hard to come up with any kind of intro to this weekend’s choice selection of shows… but whether you’re just looking to switch your brain off or a reward for fighting a good cause, it’s important to take stock […]
Happy start-of-the-world-cup day, everyone! With the tournament now underway in Russia (for whom Trump is presumably cheering), the time difference works in our favour to watch games and then still be free in the evening to hit up some concerts, which is handy because everything below the jump is an absolutely outstanding option.
It never really feels like summer until the Northside Festival rolls around, now celebrating its 10th anniversary, the music portion runs from the 7th of June until the 10th and you can still pick up a badge, or pick up single-show tickets. We’re here, as usual, to try to sift through the 70+ shows available […]
Seems somewhat ironic to have come down with a stinking cold to coincide with the first few truly lovely days (is this… summer…?), but enough about me, let’s talk about the great shows you should be going to this weekend.
It’s hard to get wrapped up in all the terrible news and seemingly everyday atrocities, but it’s important to take note of the good news, the upward trends, the acts of goodwill and all that jazz. I’m not just talking about the actual reality of things getting better over time (despite what it may seem like), […]
Pretty sure we had summer for a hot minute last weekend… but this one should be perfectly pleasant nonetheless. Did you get your Bowie metrocard? Have you started making summer festival plans? Perhaps your needs are of the more immediate variety, in which case, read on.
This is probably the best weekends-worth of shows all year, so you should probably stop reading at this point and make your plans, if you haven’t missed the boat already.
