Friday, February 24 Itsy Presents: Kabarett The Voodoo Room, Edinburgh Itsy returns with the first Kabarett event of 2012. They’ll be bringing their unique brand of neo-cabaret back to the luxurious surrounds of Edinburgh’s premier cabaret haunt the Voodoo Rooms for a night filled with twisted alternative variety performance. Featured performers include: Marnie Scarlet, Cherry Loco, Miss Annabel Sings, Miss Hell’s Belle, Puff Uproar & the Shimmering Sound Affair and comedic MC Dee Itsy.
Saturday, February 25 The Tidal Wave of Indifference Presents….Pt 2 The Wee Red Bar, Edinburgh In short, it’s another absolutely superb line-up. Topping the bill will be PAWS, whose ragged, spiky brand of pop bluster has caused quite a stir in the last six months. BBC sessions, a “T In The Park” appearance, NME mentions and a split single on Gerry Loves have been among their recent achievements. The night also features Edinburgh School for the Deaf, Sebastian Dangerfield and Broken Records frontman Jamie Sutherland taking time out from writing a new album to kick things off with a short solo set.
