‘Fat Cat Independent Promotions Presents:’ ‘Haiti Relief Gig – Forrest Cafe Fri 28/05/2010’

Leith’s Tam’s Railways manged to kick off the night with a typically energetic set  of feel-good indie. After  losing their lead guitarist they managed to draft in  Fraser “Yuill” Scott who brought the sounds of the Mississippi Delta to proceedings with his trusty harmonica. This odd partnership worked well in tonight’s  set but time will tell if it will stay the course.

Bathgate’s Hardcore Wednesdays kept the indie feel of the gig running but with a tint of a heavier, punky feel. Their somewhat ramshackle DIY roots were on display tonight  after their drummer succumbed to injury. They simply asked a member of the crowd to fill in for the night. Luckily that member of the crowd happened to be a virtuoso who put in a cracking shift.

The night’s chaos was all for a good cause of course and the Forrest Cafe’s generous patrons managed to raise over £140 for the earthquake relief effort in Haiti.
