dram - me

OMG!!!

How did I miss the news of this? Last night at the SECC was a Tsunami Relief concert with a smattering of Scottish bands and artists. Now, not to put down either of them ('cause I do love 'em) Deacon Blue and Eddi Reader would have been first on that list but I've just read the review in the Sunday Herald.

The line-up in order of appearance

Deacon Blue
Mull Historical Society
Slam
Kevin McDermott
Mogwai
Belle & Sebastian
Teenage Fanclub
Trashcan Sinatras
Eugene Kelly
Travis
Idlewild
Franz Ferdinand
Eddi Reader
Texas
Snow Patrol (yes I know they're not really Scottish but they live here now and they're honorary Scots)

Compered by Craig Hill (irritating Scottish comic) with appearances by Karen Dunbar (Scottish comic who bears an uncanny resemblance to my cousin Elaine) and Simon Pegg!!! (If I have to tell you who Simon Pegg is... go watch Shaun of the Dead and Spaced)

There's not one band there I don't love in their own way (although it took me a minute to remember who Slam are) and there are some there I would have given anything to see but to have them all at the one gig? Wow!
