Loud Poets Edinburgh: Bardians of the Galaxy

  • The Mash House

BARDIANS! THE GALAXY IS IN PERIL! WE NEED YOUR HELP!

We’ve received word that a nefariously bureaucratic race calling themselves The Establishment is steadily conquering system after system throughout the cosmos, seeking to enslave all life to an existence of pen-pushing pale-facedness. And they’ve turned their monochrome gaze to Earth!

We can only speculate as to the horror! Television will be reduced to toothpaste adverts! Our diet will be waste paper! We’ll be forced to sleep in filing cabinets! It will be really, really, really… erm… shit.

Thankfully, we’ve received intelligence from our friends at the unfortunately-abbreviated Federation of Asgardian Recon Teams that the invaders have one significant weakness: poetry. Spoken-word. With musical accompaniment. And lots of applause. It makes them cry and forces them to hug a stranger.

The Establishment’s ships will be entering our atmosphere on Friday 26th May, coincidentally right above Edinburgh’s Mash House. So tell your friends! Write some words! Get the awesome playlist on the go! Because the Bardians of the Galaxy will be saving the Earth soon, and it’s going to be EPIC!

Want to help save the world? Why not sign up to our THE VORTEX IS OPEN mic? We'll select three names on the night to perform - no paper, no prompts, no intros - and the winner will be booked for one of our future monthly shows. 

To enter, just comment #IAmLoud below or speak to us on the night.

Entry is £4 on the door, or FREE to some of our Patreons as part of our rewards scheme. To become a Patron, follow this link:

Alburn plus Terrestria, The Motion Poets, Hinks

  • Opium

Line-up -
Alburn
Terrestria
The Motion Poets
Hinks

"Alburn exhibit an ability to write technically impressive songs but with the added bonus of addictive hooks and memorable choruses which mark the band out as ones to watch in the future. We will certainly be looking forward to a full length offering from them in the not to distant future."

"Despite emerging out of Perth and Glasgow, post-hardcore four-piece Alburn share more in common with stateside veterans such as Brand New and Crime In Stereo. Fusing emo-tinged melodies with post-rock soundscapes and strained vocals, their sophomore EP ‘Mouthful of Glass’ provides a beautiful representation of cross-continental influence."

"Take off your headphones and turn up your stereo, because this is a band you're going to want to hear through speakers."

"Alburn showcase themselves extraordinarily tight, demonstrating all they have to offer and treating the crowd to stunning vocals, beautifully picked guitars, poignant lyrics with lots of passion."
