The Spook School

As many in the group know, I am a bit of a Spook School fanatic. They are my favourite Edinburgh band and I thoroughly recommend checking them out.

The Spook School play fast & frantic jump-around indie pop. When I asked Adam (the guitarist) how he would describe the band he said "We try to play pop music really hard". 

They've got a whole bunch of recordings now on their bandcamp, including their album, but I personally love the fuzziness of their EP - have a listen here

The band released their debut album last October and are touring America in the summer. 

Support comes from Heathers and Dora Maar. Heathers definitely rings a belll, I'm sure they are an indie pop band on the scene at the moment. We've seen Dora Maar back in January when I think they were starting off, so perhaps they'll have some new tunes.

Entry is £5.

    I'm going to the gig phone-free tonight. Don't want any distractions from the music. Most of you will recognise me by now, if not I'll be wearing a grey hoodie and I recommend you meet us in Bannermans pub. Hopefully get a table on the other side of the bar :)
