Oxjam and Off The Beaten Tracks

This Sunday (4th October), we'll be teaming up with Andy and Alex over at to bring you an afternoon of music and beer, and we can't think of any better way to spend a Sunday. We'll be in The Pond in Leith with sessions from Meursault, Y'All Is Fantasy Island, The Occasional Flickers and The Last Battle. Entry is free although donations are more than welcome, but because space is limited it would be best if you could register here first,

It'll be a lovely lazy afternoon, and the best news is there's a canopy for the beer garden, so even if it rains you won't get wet. Oxjam- taking care of all your needs!

Early bird tickets on sale NOW

Very exciting news, we are happy and pleased and everything else to announce that tickets for the 23rd October are now onsale here;, and are only £7 for early birds, which is a bit of a bargain, considering who you get to see, and where you get to see them.

Plus there will be some exciting stuff going on on the night. But we have to keep schtum about that. Sorry....

See you there tho.

Line-Up Coming Soon

On Saturday we will announce the line up for 23rd October, there's been a lot of hair tearing, sleepless nights, insult hurling and the like, but then suddenly out of almost nowhere it all seemed to come together and we're really pleased with the bands we have. We feel passionate about them all and honestly, this makes the whole thing so much easier to do.

Today looks set to be a long day of band bio writing, the aim is to post up details of the bands, plus links to their sites so you can make up your own minds, and a little bio too from our point of view. But, with 20 bands this might take some time, we don't want to just cut and paste from the popular press (tempting as it may be), instead bios will only come after the bands have been fully experienced in their live form, after all that's what this is all about.

Check back here Saturday, or most likely some point early Sunday morning to see the line up, or instead why don't you come along to Cab Vol, meet us in the flesh (we're real, honestly, and we've been told we're really nice too), dance to some DJ sets from super lovely bands and find out our line up right then. See you there!

Get Yer Ox Off

This is our first post, and there's so much to tell you it's hard to know where to begin. Ok, here goes....

We've been working very hard all summer to bring you an amazing flagship event in October, we're very excited about it, and once you hear more chance are you will be too. We're kicking it all off this weekend in The Speakeasy at Cababret Voltaire with DJ sets from Meursault, Dead Boy Robotics, The Little Kicks and Chutes, as if that wasn't awesomeness enough we'll also be unveiling our October line up. Come and join us to find out more, at only £4 before 12 it's a bargain of a way to spend a Saturday.

Although there was one little bit of news we had from across the Atlantic this week, it's too much to keep quiet about....Frightened Rabbit confirmed from their US tour that Scott will be playing an exclusive solo set for us on the 23rd October. Seriously. Wow!
