The Cosmonauts are back for round two at Indie Funday Friday!
You may or may not know that we're changing the format of our Hair of the Dog Sundays showcases. Instead of weekly shows, Hair of the Dog Sundays will take place on the FIRST SUNDAY of every month. Basically, we're gathering up all the music we would usually have over the space of a month (three acts & an open session) and condensing it all into one big musical day. The first one has shaped up to look a little bit like this... Kevin Nicholson Kevin Nicholson is a young keys extraordinaire who plays at a bunch of hotel piano bars and takes to the stage Tuesday-Saturday at The Rat Pack Bar on Shandwick Place. As far as I can gather, he'll be playing a bunch of tunes that you'll probably recognise and be able to sing along to - which is always a nice way to start a Sunday. Martyn McKenzie (http://www.reverbnation.com/martynmckenziemusic) Singer songwriter based in Edinburgh, have been writing and collecting material for past three years for upcoming EP and Album, the EP planned to be released early 2012. Influences and inspiration range from John Martyn and Nick Drake to The Shin's and Radiohead. I like to push myself musically and lyrically, never settling to one approach, to stretch things and see what you can do with so little. Astronaut Head (http://www.astronautheadmusic.com/) Astronaut Head has just moved to Edinburgh from a small town in New York, where she just released an EP at the end of the summer. She has some cool "indie" cred - if you will - after being featured on DM Stith's (an emerging artist from Brooklyn) first EP 'Curtain Speech' - alongside Sufjan Stevens and My Brightest Diamond. After all three acts have played, there will be an open session for everyone to get involved in and play tunes with each other. Happy musical days. 1pm Kevin Nicholson 2pm Martyn McKenzie 3pm Astronaut Head 4pm Open Session
