Roll up! Roll up! It’s time for the Red Dog’s Ball!

It’s that time of year again, folks! Dust off your best slacks, set Holby City to record, ask your granny to look after your mangy cat… it’s time to party with your pals from Red Dog Music! We have 7 of our lovely Red Dog staff members performing in 6 incredible bands. We’re also going to be showing off some of the finest instruments and PA equipment known to man! We’re too good to you, we really are. Here are some of the vitals:

The Caves, Niddry St. South, Edinburgh
Tuesday 11th December
7pm til late

… but WHO is playing, you cry? Worry not, fearedy-chops! Here’s the round-up:

Victorian Trout Conspiracy

Midnight (feat. Dave Gardner, our Roland Guru)
The epitome of totally bonkers, feel-good, dance ’til you fall down musical MADNESS. We’re not quite sure how we’re going to fit this gaggle of Ska lunatics on stage, but it’s going to be fun trying! You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll scream “JUGS!” at the top of your lungs.

Asazi Space Funk Explosion

11pm (feat. Alex Marten, our Managing Director)
Imagine if Doctor Who played a Nord Synthesizer. Now imagine that instead of saving folk from nasty aliens, he travelled space and time collecting the worlds best musicians. Bass playing Italian aristocracy. The marching drummer of a fiery Scottish clan. A sax-wielding, marimba-mauling Guru from the Cape of Africa. Imagine no more. This is THAT band.

Size Queen

10pm (feat. Dave Tynan, our Store Manager)
Scotland’s premier Hard Rock covers band! From Aerosmith to ZZ Top and EVERYTHING in between! We’ve squeezed them down from their usual 3-hour Metal-marathons to a compact 40 minute set, so we’re expecting the absolute crème de la crème of fist-pumping, gut-busting rock action!

The Gillyflowers

9pm(feat. Kirsten Adamson & Phil Hopwood, our Guitar Specialists)
Music for the heart and a rhythm for the soul, The Gillies deliver the finest Pop-Rock around, accented with charming Country twang and lush vocal harmonies. Their hotly-tipped debut album is due out next year, so this could be one of the last times you catch them playing such an intimate venue!


8pm (feat. Guy Perchard, our Marketing Exec)
Behold the beast with 6 backs! A pinch of Pop, a dash of Metal, a whole heap of glitchy Industrial nonsense! Get ready for some serious head-banging genre-bending with the heaviest act of the night! Difficult to pronounce, impossible to spell, easy to love!

King’s Close

7pm (feat. Niall Barlow, our Guitar Specialist)
Filthy, naughty and totally addictive. No, we’re not talking that X-Factor judge’s “leaked” sex-tape… We’re talking about Blues-Rock at its finest! Our newest, youngest member of staff is going to kick the evening off and show all the old wrinklies how it’s done!

WHEW! What a line-up! Basically, we’re going to rock you all night long.

If you’re living in the future, you can click here to go to the Eventbrite page and purchase tickets in advance. If you like to do things the old fashioned way, money on the door is fine with us!

The Caves have a strict over-18’s policy, so leave the nippers with a sitter!

We’re all totally stoked about putting on an evening for all our amazing customers in Edinburgh’s magical musical melting pot, and we can’t wait to see you there!

Much love,

All the Red Doggies xxx
