PLUS I’d put this in the diary dates but it’ll likely be sold out by then = GFF screening of Submarine on Friday 18 February(20.30) will be introduced in person by director Richard Ayoade (Moss fromThe IT Crowd) and lead actors Craig Roberts and Yasmin Paige. This entertaining and refreshing film is the feature debut of Ayoade, better known for his comedic turns in classic British series such as The Mighty Boosh, Garth Marenghi’s Darkplace, Man to Man with Dean Leaner and the aforementionedThe IT Crowd.
As you will see its the usual eclectic mix of indie, folk and country with Sounds regulars and new exciting acts, (not that I wish to imply that the regulars aren’t exciting, quite the opposite!) so please come along and support live music. The first Sounds gig will be at Brel on the 22nd of February and features a great new band from San Franciso, making their UK debut called Or, the Whale http://www.orthewhale.com
However before then I’d really like to draw your attention to a gig for motor neuron disease being put on by my friend and regular Sounds performer Scott MacDonald at the ABC2 in Sauchiehall Street on Sunday the 30th of January and features a stellar cast iuncluding:-

So pull your socks up, shake off those January blues and let’s all dive into 2011 like we mean it – those movies aren’t going to make themselves now are they!
WATCH THE LAST SHOW HERE…
‘The guests who appear on the show don’t feel like they’re on some rarefied plane that we’ll never reach. They’re just like us, and as such are an inspiration to try and emulate what they have achieved. Empowering is an apt word for the series so far.’
‘Chatting to other film-makers, watching the fantastic interviews and generally feeling like part of a wider community has really made me feel that ‘I can do it’.’
