The gig review? What, pictures AND words?... Okay then.
Appearing onstage clad in a sharp suit, one may be forgiven for thinking the Fence boy wonder had gone all trendy on us. Then the voice comes out, and my friend Clare says 'he was the one whose voice I liked best at KC Garage gig', and you remember that he can sing, suit distraction or not.
There was a whistling solo that almost toppled into giggles, or was that just me, but somehow it worked. The Lighthouse song gets lovelier every listen-the 'breathe slow, paddle slow...' bit giving goosebumps aplenty.
Finshing off with a cover of Dope on a Rope (cue Glasgow indie fraternity trying to pretend they know who it's by), then Into the Smoke, it's fairly clear that this year is going to be the year for the Pictish Trail.
Eugene Kelly was in acoustic mode, and had a great songs about not sending your sons to war, the old John Smiths on Byres Rd and wooden coffins.
Frances McKee had lovely songs and a lovely voice, though I missed the end of her and Eugenes set as I dropped my camera on the ground and had a wee panic.
There! Beef free evening livened up by gig and trying to write a review at 3am and squiffy.
