A Sudden Sprinkle of de Saw & Finkle

May 5, 2015


I know what you’ve been thinking. You’ve been thinking: it’s been aaaaages since I saw Markee & Bert. You know, with the singing and the stories and saw? Yeah. So, you’ll no doubt be beside yourself to learn that over the next month we’ll be All Over The Shop (technically, just Glasgow and Edinburgh but it feels like […]

Gatsby Club, Sinister Wink, Speculative Bookshop

September 23, 2014


Got a few Glasgow-based gig type things on the immediate horizon for those that are interested in such things. First up, de Saw & Finkle have a couple of cabaret gigs: On Saturday 27th  we’re excited to be appearing at the Gatsby Club’s Worlds Of Tomorrow (7.30pm, Glasgow University Union, £14), which this time around turns its theme […]

Good Stuff You Should Know About: August edition

August 8, 2014


Time for another tranche of the various cultural pies I’ve been chowing into recently. All heartily recommended. Book: The Race by Nina Allan. I’ve been enjoying Nina Allan’s sharp, insightful and beautiful stories since I first encountered Microcosmos in the pages of Interzone, and the SF world has been quietly holding it’s collective breath in preparation […]

Fringe activities #3

August 26, 2013


Well, that’s the last weekend of the 2013 Fringe been and gone. Had a great one, with two excellent de Saw / Finkle shows on Saturday night, played to brilliant audiences (even the one that seemed to think we were a comedy act), and two beautifully experimental stints as a member of the Creative Martyrs’ […]

Fringe activities #2

August 22, 2013


So, once again, catching up with the Fringe. Feel like I’ve been skimming it this year. Been through a few times, seen a  few things, but not loads. All of what I have seen though has been quality. Last week I was fortunate enough to catch up with Sarah Louise Young and Michael Roulston’s Songs […]
