Calling all music lovers, everyone in central Scotland! Ask not what to do this weekend, but ask who to vote for at the finals this Sunday. Get yourself down to the HMV Picture House on Sunday 21st November to witness which of the five finalists will be pushed through to open up the Hogmany Celebrations, by a panel of industry judges and you, yes YOU in the crowd.
Edinburgh -based Stagger Rats, Come on Gang!, Kitty and the Lion, Elecro- band Pooch and Jakil were picked by the panel as the finalists from the many talented and interesting entries.There seemed to be not only a great response from Scottish talent, which is all good for putting our country on the musical map, but also a lot of fans and supporters showing their support for many of the great acts on the Hog-the-Stage website.
So in a thimble, even if you haven't seen or heard of the above bands, come along anyway, five very different bands, no doubt giving it their all and then some..... fiver well spent !
