20th October sees showcasers Musicbox travel up to Glasgow having started out in Brighton last year, where they collected local acoustic talent and provided them with a platform to perform. Using the same idea in Stereo, Musicbox is bringing you Kitty and The Lion, Bear Bones, Chasing Owls and Bella Spinks, but this by no means demonstrates quantity over quality.
A finer collection of Scottish acoustic artists would be near impossible to find as these bands are the names to drop if you’re into emerging local music. Beguiling twee-pop musicians Kitty the Lion and 8 piece folk ensemble Bear Bones head the night with support from the charming Chasing Owls and Bella Spinks. Expect music that has a gentle heart full of hometown memories, bizarre oddities and amusing experiences. GUM will be attending of course and having a thoughtful pint with the night’s performers so if the event itself is not enough for you, look forward to reading more about the artists in a future feature!
