I'm really, really looking forward to it. Can't believe this time tomorrow we'll be on the way. It's going to be such a great weekend.

So, trickster, are we finally going to meet you this weekend or are you going to go all shy on us?

Things In Herds have cancelled. Sadface.

Nicola Trickster - come and say hello to us eh? You'll be very welcome back at ours for drinks after the bands one night. If that's OK with my housemates. Mind you, I've said the same thing to Tom Fez elsewhere...

well. that was pretty special, wasn't it? i am supposed to be going out tonight, but i am slightly sunburned, utterly exhausted and trying really hard to work up the energy to leave the house.

i had such a delightful weekend, i barely know where to start. i think my favourite moment of the entire weekend was seeing men diamler do 'let the four winds blow' with various other musicians providing backing vocals/harmonies (i noticed several members of withered hand, pictish, eagleowl, but there were many more) in the hew scott hall this afternoon. his whole set was cracking, to be fair. love.stop.repeat never fail to make me happy, but the set they did in the fisheries museum was another of my highlights of the weekend. the hew scott hall was the venue for several of my favourites, actually: men diamler, meursault's acoustic set, the three craws. i thought kid canaveral were ACE too, francois was cracking, withered hand were characteristically brilliant, slow club were amazing, dtb was...interesting, and karine polwart was a proper treat. i didn't see a dud act all weekend.

homegame FAIL #1: not meeting trickster

homegame FAIL #2: not being able to see the daniel johnston covers set

That was alright eh?

My favourite Homegame memory isn't music-related, although it starts that way. I came out the Hew Scott Hall on Saturday afternoon after seeing George Thomas be all wonky and charming knowing I would have a voicemail message from my pal at the fitba letting me know the score. I switched my phone back on and sure enough there it was - Rovers 1-0 Stirling, Brechin 1-0 Ayr, which meant that the Rovers were back on top of the league by 2 points, with 3 games to go. Buoyed, and some might say cock-a-hoop, I began to make my way up to the Town Hall to see Withered Hand. As I turned around the corner to go up to the TH entrance I spotted a fellow Rovers fan that I know and as soon as he saw me we simultaneously threw our arms in the air in celebration. The music took care of itself, but thinking of that still makes me smile a great deal.

Like Lynsey, most of what I saw was great. The Three Craws were the best, the fucking best. The Lonepigeon / Beta Band medley they closed with was special enough but the Adrian Crowley cover they opened with was magical, a hushed crowd, hairs on the back of your neck standing up magical. It was a privilege to be there at that point.

I'm away to eat some vegetables now.

Can we go back this weekend please? It was so great. I was just thinking of HMS Ginafore's closing 'All Extra, All Wrong' and did a massive sigh. Slow Club were wonderful, particularly in the little upstairs show. Player Piano were a revelation, James Yorkston fucking ruled (but then he practically always does), and the Three Craws, oh the Three Craws. We were so lucky to all get in, which somehow made it even better.

It's just such a great scene, amid such great scenery. And what makes it all the better is to be able to experience it with such a charming group of people.

Anyone fancy a pint?

A pretty good Three Craws gig last night in the 'Dour. Typically charmingly ramshackle and wonky at times, typically heartbreakingly great, typically random and tangential, sometimes during the same song (the Adrian Crowley-Chitty Chitty Bang Bang-Baker Street mash up really needs to be heard to be believed) and just typically watching 3 pals play their favourite songs.

KC's Russian Sailor Shirts was magnificent, the Summertime Beeswing medley doesn't get any worse, all in all just 2 hours of guid tunes. Recordings available as soon as I upload them somewhere.
