That’s right we’re hosting our very own Christmas Party at Pivo Pivo, Glasgow on the 19th December!
Since our King Tuts gig was cancelled outwith our control we thought why not do something fun? So come one an’ all wearing ridiculous, itchy Christmas jumpers, grab a homemade mince pie with your left, pint of ale with your right and party to a night of fantastic music!
We’re proud to be playing alongside Green Ghosts, comprised of lyrical adventures brought to life through beautiful vocals and intricate acoustic melodies. Take a listen here.
It’s also an absolute pleasure to have Where We Lay Our Heads onboard as well who never fail to bring an energetic performance to the table. A blend of folk, rock, pop and a hefty helping of Glasgow make up the fantastic and unique sound of Where We Lay Our Heads.
Tickets are available from this link at an advance price of only £4. Otherwise on the door tickets are £5, but £4 if you come with your Christmas jumper on. On entry you’ll also receive a Brave Young Red Christmas Cracker featuring a unique download code!
That’s all for now folks.
As of recently things have been quite quiet at BYR HQ. Our upcoming gig at King Tuts on the 13th November was cancelled for reasons outwith our control but not to worry…plans are formulating…
We have been rehearsing intensely and are planning the launch of a single sometime in the near future. Prior to which we are also organising a Christmas show! So keep your eyes peeled.
Here’s a little something to keep you occupied just now though. We recently did an acoustic rendition of The Pictish Trail’s Words Fail Me Now, which you can listen to from below. A Brave Young Red live lounge, if you will.
That’s all for now folks, updates to follow.
We are pleased to announce our first Glasgow show in ages at King Tut’s on the 13th November supporting The Night VI, who are coming up from London. We are looking forward to finally playing the venue, having been to so many shows at it ourselves. Tickets are priced at £6 and will be available directly from us as soon as we get them. We’ll make them available to order from the music and merchandise tab. Glasgow’s Pale Fire are also playing on the night so it looks to be a good one!
See you there, Angus x
We always seem to find ourselves performing more and more each September, with new and exciting events falling into our laps.
Yesterday we had a great time at Live at Troon (Angus, James, and Mikey), although the crowd was relatively small, the responses were very positive and the three of us enjoyed getting to blast out our songs in the small beach tent. Unfortunately, Erin couldn’t make it along as was very unwell.
Next on our list is our performance at the Ayr Gaiety on Friday 20th September. We’ll be doing a stripped-back acoustic set where we’ll have plenty of surprises and who knows, maybe even some new tracks? If you want to find out, click here to find out more about the event and buy tickets which are priced at £10.
The day after (Saturday 21st) we’ll be performing at The Basement Café’s Wired Music Festival, a day long festival featuring 27 bands over 2 stages. We’ll be on at 8.50pm upstairs on the Apartment Stage. To learn more about the festival/The Basement click here to link to the event page.
It’s shaping up to be a great month and we’re looking forward playing some dates in Ayr for a change.
We’ve got a bit of a break until our next gig, which is at Live At Troon on Sunday 8th September on the Tenement TV Stage. If you haven’t heard of Tenement TV, they’ve recorded lots of live footage working with acts such as Kassidy, Nina Nesbitt, Bastille and Public Enemy to name a few. You can find out more and check out some of their stuff by clicking here.
We can also now announce that we have been confirmed for the Wired Music Festival at the Basement in Ayr on Saturday 21st September, an event which will mark the first year anniversary of the business. The Basement came 3rd in NME’s Britain’s Best Small Venue Competition, a great feat considering it had only been in business for 8 months at the time of being shortlisted. For links to check out the line-up and purchase tickets, take a look at the Wired Facebook page.
Before that we are playing at the Ayr Gaiety on Friday 20th September alongside Sean Kennedy, Scott Nichol and Alex Duncan. More details will be posted in the not too distant future.
Also, here’s a pretty cool picture of us onstage at the HebCelt Festival. BYR x
Well what a fantastic weekend we all had! Amazing sunshine, plenty of cold beers and we were immersed in an array of both traditional and contemporary music.
Opening the main stage on Saturday was definitely a worthwhile experience as we were kindly welcomed by Stornaway’s locals and also those who had travelled from much further afield (Wyoming for one new Brave Young Red fan!). It was great to be featured alongside our friends from Rose Parade who we travelled to and from the Isle of Lewis with and also alongside Fatherson, a band who just seem to get better and better every time we see them! Everyone sounded incredible and it was a great environment to be part of.
An impromptu set at the HebCelt festival club and doing an acoustic set for BBC Rapal were added bonuses to our weekend. The acoustic set should be broadcast this coming Tuesday (23rd) so keep your eyes peeled on all our social media pages for links to tune in!
A big thanks goes out to Caroline and Angela who kept us organised, Lachie for carting us and all our gear about, Chris for doing a great job as a stand-in guitarist, Rose Parade for generally being awesome and finally to Maggie and Robert who put us up for two nights, fed us until our bellies burst and took such good care of us all.
We will have some new dates to announce in the near future so keep an eye on this page but for now I’m off for a long, long sleep.
James, BYR x
As we recently mentioned, James wrote 3 songs as part of a University project and we recorded, mixed, and mastered them all by ourselves. They are demos of course, but we’re pretty darn pleased with them!
If you’d like a listen, click here and you’ll be whisked away to the Bandcamp page. Like what you hear? You can even purchase a limited edition CD of 50, bound in a card wallet with beautiful artwork by Kimberly Goslan.
This coming week we’ll have some more announcements so keep your eyes peeled…
